Baggy, Saggy Eyelids

Your eyes are one of the most important aspects of your appearance, and one of the first areas to show signs of aging. For some, this can occur as early as your twenties to early thirties. If the eyes project a lack of energy due to overhanging skin and puffiness, you may appear tired or older. Conversely, if the eyes are more open and relatively free of creases and folds, you will probably seem more rested and youthful.

Cosmetic Facial Plastic Surgery is a popular way to help you look your best. Eyelid Surgery or Eyelift is known medically as blepharoplasty (blef-er-o-plasty) is actually one of the most frequently performed cosmetic plastic surgery procedures for the face. There are two types of blepharoplasty, upper eyelid blepharoplasty and lower eyelid blepharoplasty where each procedure corresponds to the area of the face where it is performed.

You might benefit from eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty if:

•Your upper eyelids appear hooded
•It's become increasingly difficult to put on eye makeup
•Even after you've had a good night's sleep people ask you if you're tired
•You have puffiness under your eyes that never goes away
•You are developing bulges in the corners of your upper eyelids
•You have trouble keeping your eyes open
•Your upper eyelids always feel heavy
•Your eyes appear to have become smaller
•Your eye makeup smudges very easily
•You've lost the fold of your upper eyelid
•Your peripheral vision is decreased
•You have excess skin and crepe like wrinkles beneath your eyes
•Ever since you can remember you've had baggy eyes

A Chuckle-A-Day:

There were two old guys, Abe and Sol, sitting on a bench in a park feeding pigeons and talking about baseball, just like they did every day. Abe turns to Sol and says, "Do you think there's baseball in heaven?"

Soloman thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno, Abe. But let's make a deal: If I die first, I will come back and tell you, and if you die first, you come back and tell me, if there is basebal l in heaven."

They shake on it and, sadly, a few months later poor Abe passes on. One day soon afterward, Sol is sitting there feeding the pigeons by himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sol... Sol...."

Sol responds, "Abe! Is that you?"

"Yes it is Sol," whispers the spirit of Abe.

Sol, still amazed, asks, "So, is there baseball in heaven?"

"Well," says Abe says, "I got good news and I got bad news."

"Gimme the good news first," says Sol.

Abe says, "Well... there is baseball in heaven."

Sol says, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin that!?"

Abe sighs and whispers, "You're pitching on Friday."
