Today's image-conscious consumers are inquiring about facial surgery a decade earlier than past generations. "Women start coming in their 30s and men in their 40s, says Dr. Darrick Antell, a plastic surgeon in New York City. "Usually, the first thing that both sexes want done is their eyelids."
New techniques for this procedure, called blepharoplasty, enable surgeons to "tease out" the fat in the lower eyelids from inside, leaving no visible incisions. Using endoscopes, which are slender instruments equipped with a camera, surgeons are also performing "mini forehead-lifts," which, in most cases, result in a natural appearance.
