Rejuvenate “Tired and Sleepy” Eyes With Blepharoplasty

Firm eyelids and a youthful look, that’s what you want to see in the mirror each morning. Happily, simply by placing yourself in the hands of Dr. Mark Glasgold and his associates, you can soon restore that wide-eyed and vibrant countenance you desire. After all, the eyes are known as the windows to the soul for good reason. Left to droop and loosen, your upper eyelids start to cover your eyes. That hooded, heavy appearance to your gaze, deceptive as it may be, will make you look sleepy and older. Eyelid surgery is the answer, surgery that’ll erase the years that hang above your still very much young at heart eyes.

The youth-rejuvenating results are fully realizable, but the best possible outcome requires the services of a true professional, someone who’ll consider every factor and lead you carefully through the procedure. Are there risks? How long of a recovery period should you expect after the eyelid surgery has concluded? For answers to these questions and more, please read on.

Understand The Procedure

Known by plastic surgeons as an Upper Blepharoplasty, the goal is to skillfully rejuvenate the skin of the upper lids. The procedure uses several small incisions to erase the years, to remove puffiness and that heavy aspect to the eyes that conveys an impression of weariness or apathy. Generally speaking, your plastic surgeon will recommend a local anesthesia. For full comfort and a stress-free experience, talk to Dr. Glasgold about a local, plus IV sedation.

At any rate, with thoughts of discomfort now dismissed, you’re likely wondering where the incisions will be placed. Like any other plastic surgeon, a specialist who views his work with a high degree of professionalism, the doctor directs his actions with great dexterity. Each carefully applied surgical incision is delicately concealed within the lines of an eyelid crease. Excess fat and tissue are removed at this point, and the area is sculpted ever so slightly so that the upper lid area gains a smooth, contoured appearance.

Characterizing Eyelid Surgery Experiences

Sitting in a waiting room, you worry a little. Escorted into the doctor’s office and seated, those worries evaporate like an early morning mist. For every question you have, there’s a reassuring answer. Indeed, you discover that eyelid surgery on the upper lid is considered routine, although the Glasgold group never treats any procedure as routine; as soon as you enter the sanitized operation area, every move, every incision and surgical action, will be made with clinical precision.

First of all, there’s the local anesthetic to administer. A slight stinging sensation is possible here, but that feeling soon passes. A light IV sedative is also carefully dispensed at this moment, all the better to assure a comfortable and anxiety-free procedure, from start to end. Only when the upper lid area is numb and you’re ready does the blepharoplasty commence. The incisions are concealed, perhaps in the fold of your eyelid or in a fine skin crease. Then, when the lid contours are well-defined and the puffiness-causing fat is removed, a few mico-sutures are used to invisibly conceal the work.

In point of fact, after the procedure is over, there should be very little bruising or swelling. The local anesthetic minimizes such post-op issues. Diligently wielding his instruments, your doctor also works hard, and with supreme dexterity, to ensure the incision marks blend into your natural skin creases and light wrinkles.

Who Will Enjoy The Benefit?

If you’re constantly being asked if you’re getting enough sleep, a moment comes when you wonder why everyone’s convinced you’re so sleepy. Perhaps you’re a woman, and your eye makeup would benefit from larger, smoother eyelids. Or, if you’re a man, that promotion you’ve been after is out of reach because your hooded eyes are making you look sleepy and old. Whatever the reason, this eyelid surgery could just be your way out of the eyelid-heavy doldrums.

Of course, you’re not worried about an obstruction to your visual field when you’re on the verge of opting for an upper blepharoplasty, but you’re certainly beginning to experience a different kind of anxiety. Looking in the mirror, seeing the reactions of friends, colleagues, and family, you just want to rejuvenate your eyelids and be able to convey the inner energies you’re experiencing. Thankfully, restored by this procedure, your eyes will look well-rested and significantly younger.

What Are The Post-Op Effects?

Well, a light swelling effect around the lid area is common. That post-op outcome could linger for as long as a week, and it may be accompanied by some localized discomfort, but it will fade. If the discomfort does last longer, please do contact your plastic surgeon. Otherwise, post-operative dressings are not required, and you can resume normal activities when the preoperative narcotics have safely worn off. As for driving, don’t attempt to drive until all narcotics and pain meds have passed through your body. Additionally, consider remaining a passenger until all of that concentration-debilitating eye discomfort has gone.

For more information and an appointment, call the offices of Dr. Mark Glasgold. Board-certified in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Glasgold and his professionally accredited colleagues will work with you to ensure you receive the highest level of care and consideration. Dr. Glasgold specializes in facial rejuvenation techniques including eyelid surgeries in New Jersey. From the moment your consultation begins to the moment your procedure concludes, your path to a positive outcome is our sole concern.

Then vs Now.

Hey readers,

I got talking to my mum the other day and she was discussing her dream to go on this holiday of a lifetime. She said that she made for her home and that she didn’t need to worry about things like a mortgage. I discussed my mortgage my age and how the prices of homes have risen so high over the years compared to her time when she was younger. Some things are better now but also they can be tough going especially for the young couples like myself trying to get their foot on the housing market and make a home mine.

I think my mum is now at the age where she can enjoy her retirement and think about doing some exciting things that she wants to do. She wants to go explore the world and now at the age she is, she can go to Egypt and see the pyramids and ride on a camel. She is fortunate to have that security to know that she has paid her mortgage and can feel secure knowing her home is for life. She can do anything she wants, she could redecorate her home if she wanted to.

It was interesting to hear my mum tell me that she looked into how much her property had increased over the thirty odd years since she had brought her home. It was the best decision for her to buy and invest, she can now enjoy her life knowing that she has been rewarded later on for paying her mortgage. As much as I appreciate her success regarding getting raise her value to her home. I can’t even manage ever owning my own home or if was fortunate how long would it go on for till I finally get to pay off the whole mortgage. These times are uncertain, they’re not as secure as when my mum was younger. Security and a job for life are not always definite. You could lose your home if you lose your job and not manage the payments. It is a much riskier era to be in when considering homes.

I know it was a lot easier 30 odd years ago when my mum brought her home, the prices were so lower, click here to check how much your property is worth. It was much easier for people of my mum’s generation to quickly pay off the mortgage when my mum brought her home in 1980 it only took her 13 years to pay off. The thought now just doesn’t seem imaginable. Not to mention my mum having much more choice, she has a 3 bedroom semi-detached for £25,000. I can’t even imagine me affording that size property and definitely not for the price. The rise of the cost of the property over the last 30 years is mind-blowing.

So, as you can see my mum was lucky to be around at the right time where now she can sit back and reap the rewards of the increase of the value of her home that she can have the dream of riding a camel.

It’s all about the beats

Hey readers,

A great way to enjoy this summer heat is to get the headphones on and get walking. A fantastic heatphones set is Beats Studio 3 headphones. These beats are excellent because they offer noise cancellation which if you have never experienced it is a must. They really do help give a better audio experience when there is less external noise around therefore you can just a simply focus on listening to your music.

As you can tell they are large but that is the thing that makes Beats headphones appealing as they are made from soft cushioned ears to make them comfortable for long wearing periods. The ear cushions go over the ears which for me personally I prefer as they don’t hurt your ears because they don’t need to go inside the ear. The headphones themselves are a flexible fit meaning that you can adjust to your personal needs so that you are confident that you can get the right fit for you.

I like the fact that the headphones come in black colour as I like the subtle that it design brings. I think it is great not to just focus on the appearance and just go with the goal to escape from the world and just get the enjoyment from your music. The design of the headphones is lightweight, durable and comfortable so all you simply have to focus on is listening to your music.

They are wireless headphones so you don’t have to mess about with leads and they also come with a carry box to make them safe and secure when you are not using the headphones.

The manufacturers have said that the headphones have up to 22 hours of charge which means you can enjoy listening to your music throughout the day without the fear of needing to charge my headphones.

The headphones are compatible with iPhone.

Why museums are important

Hey readers,

Today I want to talk about why museums are important. Well first of they tend to be free which means it is gives opportunity for everyone to access and explore history and culture with the world around us. It doesn’t matter on your background, race. gender or financial the museum is open for all to access if they so desire.

Looking at the display

It is a great place to take the children especially, like myself who does not have loads of money. It is a good way to education a child and to learn through visual ideas and artifacts found in the museum.

They offer free events which is a great way to connect within the community. It allows you to appreciate the different types of expression people can do. It allows you to explore freely with like minded people who also enjoy art.

Children enjoy learning about history and how different peoples lives are or how they used to live. It is an alternative way to learn and it allows a fun way to communicate with children and grasp the complexates of people.

Often the free activities available at the museum can help inspire children to express themselves and get creative. It is a safe place where they won’t be judged and encouraged to do as they wish and with what t hey feel comfortable doing. Children can learn different forms of art and can get excited with the information they have learnt meaning they can expand further when at home or school.

It is a Breathe of fresh air to go to place like the museum that it is not just based on modern information but alternative ideas of thinking.

Museums are a place to remember the past and celebrate the achievements of others have done and created history for it.

Thinking about the important of the museum for a society then there are financial benefits of having museums in places because they can help boast the economy. They provide reasons for other people that don’t live in the area to come and explore the museum.

Also, if you have some money you can be tempted to check out the local shop or go for something to eat and drink therefore back into the economy. Therefore keeping the attraction open for all to explore and have the opportunity.

Do you enjoy going to a museum?

Reasons to love summer

Hey readers,

It is officially summer time now so let’s get celebrating this hot season. Here are my reasons why I love summer.


Washing Line

As a parent, nothing excites me more than to put out the washing on the line, to have that fresh feel when you bring it down. Nothing gets me more excited than getting four loads of washing washed, hung, got down and put away in a day – that my friends are some achievement.  Not to mention the buzz you get of feeling all domesticated and winning at life.

Al Fresco.


Eating outdoors is ace when you have  children because you can leave all the crumbs behind and don’t have to hoover. It is fresh air and being around nature no better place to be when eating. I finding having picnics less stressful then eating at home, maybe kids too and they seem much more relaxed with this option to the alternative eating at a table.


Sunset in UP

With the above point about picnics this can be incorporated with going outside, as I have young children it tends to be the park, which that it was my children every really want to be honest. They can burn off steam while I can get a moment to read some of my book, it is a winner and everyone is happy. It is also cheap day out, the kids get sleepy and everyone is happy to come home and chill out. Going out side mess less bickering and the boys get on better without each other wanting to pull each other hair out.

Schools out.

Family at the lake 

During the summer period of late July and August the boys have broken up from school and nursery. It  feels much more relaxed because there is a unstructured schedule but that sense of urgency to do homework or get out of the door early in the morning. It allows my eldest to be a bit calm as he hasn’t got the added anxiety of spelling tests (this might not affect every child, however my eldest is autistic and performance activities effects him greatly). If we have a day out somewhere on a Sunday or during the week we can take our time without having the thoughts in the back of the mind that we need to get home so the boys don’t get tired the next day for school or nursery.

Holiday away from home. 

The girl and stuff in the open trunk

Of course holidays tend now to occur during the summer holiday as it is the best time to break up the six weeks of summer holidays. Getting away from it all, exploring new surroundings and taking trips to the beach all make up create memories for the family.

With summer normally means warmer weather, therefore the choices swing to lighter meals and anything that cool to help get through the heat. I spend a fair amount of money stocking up on the ice creams and lollies, of course a magnum or tip top are signs that summer has officially arrived.

What do you enjoy about summer?

Six Ways To Deal With Rejection 

Hey readers,

Sometimes I just want to throw the towel in because I feel like a pile of shit. I am particularly venerable in feeling down because my confidence is at rock bottom. It can be really mentally draining when you are rejected all the time, it can be so disheartened especially when you have so much hope in that one thing.  So, how do you overcome rejection, well here my tops to cope with such a horrible feeling.

rejection 3

1) First of it is ok to grieve in a sense and have a  good  old cry. I feel it is good to mope for short period as it gives you more time to come round to the decision.

rejection 2)Reminding yourself that this feeling will pass and it will get better.

3) A great way to try not to pay all your attention on the feelings of rejection is to  keep yourself distracted. This will make you not feed into the downward spiral of a downer instead you can do something practical and deal with the feelings at a later date when you are calmer.

4) Accepting the rejection and moving on. It may help to acknowledge that you are not the only person in the world to have experienced rejection. At some point in life everyone will experience rejection even the most successful people can;t run away from it either.


5) Rejection maybe a good thing for you. For example if you attended a job interview you could ask the interviewer the reasons behind their decision to not employ you. This could potentially help you learn and help make changes to improve if needed.

6) Finally I feel it is important to praise yourself as it is an indicate that you are living your life  and taking that risk by putting yourself out there.  It takes courage to put yourself in a venerable situation so take time to appreciate the work you have achieved.
