People pursue cosmetic surgical and non-surgical treatments for many reasons. Some men and women wish to reduce the signs of aging. Adults and children with birth defects, eyelid disorders or injuries may need reconstructive surgery to improve their vision and appearance. When they receive expert treatment, these patients benefit from improved well-being, self-image, and in many cases, better vision.
