Two Signs It’s Time to Consider a Blepharoplasty
When you’re young, there are few things people tell you about growing old other than you get to retire on the beach somewhere if you’re lucky, and that you’ll have gained some good wisdom along the way (or so they say). And although there are unique benefits to every stage in the aging process, there are also some things— like aging skin— that people fail to mention.
If you have started to lose collagen and elastin in virtually every part of your skin— including around your eyes— you are not alone. With an eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty, we can surgically remove excess skin and fat around the eyelids to give you a more youthful looking appearance? So, how can you tell if you should consider a blepharoplasty? Let’s take a closer look.
You Look Tired All of the Time
If you’re the young parent of a newborn or if you just got a job promotion that is keeping you working into all hours of the night, you are going to be tired and look even more tired all of the time. However, if you are at a stage in your life where you can get enough sleep every night and take care of yourself, there is no reason to look tired. However, as we age, we start to store fat under and around our eyes which can make us look more tired than we are. Luckily, with a blepharoplasty, we can remove that excess fat and skin to make you look more alert and awake.
Your Eye Cream Isn’t Working
Everyone and their mom should be using an anti-aging eye cream every night before bed. Eye creams help restore moisture to the skin while simultaneously fighting fine lines and wrinkles. And although eye creams are great for the skin, they can only do so much. If you have noticed that your eye cream isn’t helping with fine lines and wrinkles and bags under your eyes anymore, then it may be time to consider getting a blepharoplasty.
Here at Associated Plastic Surgeons, we offer patients a variety of skin tightening surgeries and noninvasive procedures to help lift and tighten your skin. Ready to learn more about a blepharoplasty? Schedule your consultation today at our Huntington office: (631) 423-1000.

How to Get Kissable Lips Before Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day is all about spending the day with the one you love most and hopefully getting a bouquet of flowers and a kiss or two at the end of the night. Here at Associated Plastic Surgeons, we can help you get fuller, sexier lips just in time for V-day. Let’s take a closer look at how.
Hyaluronic acid based fillers like dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane aren’t just good at filling in fine lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth and adding volume and contour to your cheeks— in fact, they are also great at filling in your lips as well. By making small, strategic injections in your lips, you can get an almost instantly fuller, sexier pout so that you can kiss your significant other on Valentine’s Day.
And although some patients experience swelling right after injections, as long as you ice and follow our recovery tips, the swelling should subside in just a few days— giving you plenty of time to kiss comfortably.
In addition to getting lip fillers from our Associated Plastic Surgeons, also consider making sure that your lips are exfoliated and hydrated. To exfoliate your lips, try using an organic sugar scrub to get rid of the dead skin. Additionally, try using a natural lip balm that contains ingredients like coconut oil to make sure that your lips are as silky as ever.
Valentine’s Day is almost here which means that your lips need to be ready and prepared to be kissed. By getting fuller lips with fillers, you can give your significant other the best kiss of their life. To learn more about fillers or to schedule your consultation, contact our Huntington office at (631) 423-1000.
