Today many businesses and organizations are using virtual platforms to hold meetings and connect with clients and customers. Fortunately, this method of communication allows the work to continue for some who would otherwise be greatly affected by the pandemic. Unfortunately, it may also highlight features of your face and neck of which you may not be enormously proud. Aging eyelids fit in that category.

When you look in the mirror and see newly formed lines and wrinkles around your eyes, or perhaps the barely noticeable lines have become more pronounced, you may feel disheartened. You notice those drooping eyelids and how tired they make you look even when you feel perky. Perhaps now is the time to make changes to your appearance.

Your Aging Eyelids

Like other areas around your face, the skin surrounding your eyes begins to lose its elasticity when you reach 30-40 years of age. Some people may notice changes before they are out of their 20s. As you get older and collagen production declines, fine lines develop around the corners of your eyes and your eyelids may begin to sag.

You may be among those individuals whose eyes begin to look puffy due to fat accumulations in the loose skin around the eyes. It is also common for aging lower eyelids to look baggy. Some individuals have problems with their vision due to sagging skin of the upper eyelid.

Minimize the Effects of Aging Eyelids

There are several options available to you for minimizing the sagging skin of the upper eyelid and addressing the bags of the lower eyelid. There are also procedures to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet and other fine lines around your eyes. The appropriate treatment can help you look years younger without undergoing surgery. If you are looking for a more permanent solution, minimally invasive surgery is also an option.

No one really knows how long virtual meetings will last. Some businesses like the model so much they are making the change permanently. Now more than ever, you want to look your best, especially when you are on screen. You can trust the expertise of Dr. Maia and our team at Maia Plastic Surgery to provide you with the excellent results you desire to restore a more youthful look. Contact us today to schedule a consultation appointment.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
