Aging can change everything from your teeth, to your health to your hair and nails, but it’s what it’s doing to your eyes that you should be concerned about…

As you get older of course your body is going to change. We all know that some changes are unavoidable as it is simply a fact of life. Our eyesight deteriorates, our joints may begin to hurt and you will notice the appearance of wrinkles and lines where you never noticed any before. Dr Peter Martin performs cosmetic treatments to enhance the overall appearance of his patients, starting with their eyes which are one of the most tell-tale signs of aging. Dr Peter Martin is an ophthalmologist who practices mainly in oculoplasty at his practice in Bondi Junction in Sydney.

What is oculoplasty?

Oculoplasty is the corrective surgery performed on areas surrounding the eye, which includes the entire face. Dr Peter Martin likes to take an all-encompassing approach because it is the only way to make a patient completely happy with the way they look. The eyes and the facial features must work in harmony to create an aesthetically pleasing appearance, no matter what age or gender the patient is. Directly around the eye is one of the most delicate areas of the face to cosmetically enhance, and if done incorrectly it can result in a ‘plastic’ looking affect that is undesirable and unnatural.

Your eyes and face can reflect the age you feel, not the age you are

Although aging gracefully is achievable, sometimes a small amount of enhancement is necessary to give you the confidence in your slightly older age. There is nothing wrong with wanting to look younger and more ‘fresh’ which is why Dr Peter Martin offers a range of treatments designed to enhance the look of the area around the eyes for a younger appearance.

He performs:

  • Cosmetic eyelid surgery
  • Dermal filler injections
  • Anti-wrinkle injections
  • Laser skin rejuvenation

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is perhaps one of the most important and most delicate procedures which Dr Martin performs. As one of the leading ophthalmologists in Sydney he is able to perform the most delicate surgeries with the care and precision required for a satisfying result to his patients. He can then perform dermal filler injections to increase volume in the area surrounding the eye for a more youthful appearance. This is popular if you have sallow sockets beneath the eye, which is normally accompanied by dark circles. Anti-wrinkle injections are best performed at the first sign of wrinkles, as this will decrease the intensity of the wrinkles by paralysing the muscles that cause them.

Habits we do throughout our life sticks with us as we age

If you have been a heavy smoker for most of your life then you can expect dullness of the skin and to look at least 5 years older than you normally would. Also years of stress can cause problems for our temperament as well as our physical appearance, through the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In order to further treat cosmetic conditions of the skin Dr Martin may perform his laser skin rejuvenation which can decrease pigmentation and provide a more even skin tone and youthful appearance.
