Suggestions for tired looking face
A face and neck lift along with a lower lid blephroplasty wiht light laser. I think would improve things very nicely.
There are multiple options for you.
My suggestions are:
Browlift, and upper blepharoplasty
Face and neck lift + fat grafts to correct nasolabial fold and tear trough
like a few other colleagues offer online consultations where you send us your
photos and we can estimate the cost. Find a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and
discuss what will be the proper treatment to achieve the result you desires.

Dear Amapola21, Your concerns are a common complaint in women your age and often times women even younger. I would suggest an endoscopic brow lift with a mid face suspension. This is an ideal surgery for the type of aging you are currently seeing. This will allow you a refreshed look to the brow and eye area while adding fullness to the cheeks for a natural youthful appearance. I believe you would be extremely happy addressing the brow and eyes alone at this time. You can always address the lower face later.To see some similar patients and their before and afters see my link below. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
The tired, sad look comes from an aging face. The face appears long when the cheeks are flat and the jowls are forming in the lower face. A facelift with fillers will give you a more youthful appearance. From these photos, you appear to have upper eyelid fullness. You would benefit from either an upper blephroplasty or browlift. Your lower eyes have fullness that can be addressed with a lower blephroplasty.
Focus on the periorbital area
Thanks for your question. You could gain a more refreshed look with an endoscopic brow lift that also helps the upper face by elevating the hollowness of your lower eyelid-cheek junction. You might also consider upper and lower blepharoplasty and possibly a lower facelift to complete your makeover.
Improving tired appearance at 50
Your brows give you a tired, sad look. Lateral brow lift will not only eradicate this but quite possible lift the "extra" upper eyelid skin enough that you won't need a blepharoplasty. Your lower eyelids, mid face and lower face and neck appears to have virtually no sagging skin. For these areas I recommend adding facial volume with either synthetic fillers or natural fat transfer.
The eyes are very important to the appearance of the whole face and aging here often gives you a tired appearance. Upper and lower eyelid surgery will give you a more refreshed look. You would also benefit from a lower face and neck lift.
Keep it simple and address the brow and eyes with a browlift and upper and lower blepharoplasty. These are lower cost procedures that happen to last many years. If your neck is truly bothering you a type of facelift that addresses the lower third of face and neck is also possible at the same time.
Face/ necklift and eyelid surgery
A consultation and examination would better determine what may or may not be required. Loose skin in the neck is best treated with a lower face and neck lift. This involves tightening loose facial and neck muscles, tightening loose facial and neck skin, and removing any fatty deposits in the neck. The hooded skin on the upper eyelids creates a tired look, and an upper eyelid blepharoplasty can rejuvenate them. For many examples of both procedures, please see the link and the video below
My face looks tired. Any suggestions?
definition of facial rejuvenation varies from surgeon to surgeon and means
different things to different patients. In general it is the process to try to
reverse the facial appearance caused by aging. It may involve improving the
skin texture and complexion, diminishing skin discoloration, minimizing fine
lines and wrinkles, contouring hollows, or tightening loose tissue that has
lost its elasticity.
There are a variety of procedures, both non-surgical and surgical which can be
utilized to achieve these various goals. Fillers, Botox or Dysport, micro-fat
grafts, chemical peels, a skin care program, lasers, skin tightening, and
surgical lifts are some of the methods that are used to achieve a cosmetic
improvement. Each has advantages and disadvantages as well as limitations of
what they can achieve. The best technique or combination of procedures depends
on desired outcome, individual anatomy, underlying medical health, and extent
of aging. There is no one approach that is ideal for everyone.
I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of
Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic
Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with who has all of
the modalities of treatment available. You should discuss your concerns with
that surgeon in person.
Facial rejuvenation needs to be individualized. What would be an ideal approach
for one patient is not necessarily the same for someone else. Based on the
examination and discussion at the consultation, you should have a better
understanding of the various options that can achieve the best cosmetic result
