Best RX: Tired Faces

Atlanta’s local doctors provide answers to all your medical questions. One Best Self reader asked: What are some surgical options for a guy who’s concerned about his face looking so tired?

Seth A. Yellin, MD from Marietta Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics Center answered: For men in their 40s and 50s, the most common concern is that they look tired no matter how much sleep they get. This is commonly due to predictable, age-related changes to the eye area and not to a lack of sleep. Heaviness of the upper eyelids and a loss of youthful mid-face fullness results in hollowness under the eyes which makes the under eye area darker, creating the appearance of fatigue. If you invest in correcting these problem areas, you will look refreshed and alert. Upper eyelid heaviness is best treated with a simple, in-office surgical procedure known as a blepharoplasty, which is performed under local anesthesia. To learn what options are best for you, see a board-certified facial plastic surgeon.
