If blepharoplasty (BLEF-ER-O-PLASTY) sounds like too frightening a word, think of it as an eye tuck. Nobody can help getting old, but there's no reason you have to look old. One of the first places where visible aging occurs is around the eyes. Blepharoplasty is a simple operation to remove excess skin from the upper and lower eyes, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. Modern plastic surgery techniques have made this one of the more popular operations for people who want to look as young as they feel. If you're considering minor surgery to improve your appearance, consult with a plastic surgeon or ear, nose and throat specialist about this simple procedure.
