I have a soft spot for the 1980’s. This decade defined my childhood. Tunes such as this Billy Idol song really take me back to a great place. Let’s face it, which other time in history could mix peg-leg pants, neon pink tee-shirts and super-mullet haircuts? Ahh…those were the days.
Over the last several years, I have seen many patients who share my same age. A common request they have is rejuvenation of the eyes and face. Many patients have said: “I look so tired all of the time…and I can’t stand these bags under my eyes.” As a plastic surgeon in San Diego (and a guy in his 40s), I share similar concerns. I woke up the other day (after a not so restful night with my infant daughter) and looked in the mirror. I didn’t quite recognize the guy staring back at me: puffy lower eyelids, dark circles and a scruffy beard (ok…maybe the beard isn’t so bad?)
