Have you ever had someone say “You look tired, not getting enough sleep?” or “You don’t look like you’re feeling well, I can see it in your eyes,” that’s exactly what happened to me at a high school reunion after preparing for a month to be fabulous. That was my personal epiphany to schedule an appointment for a consultation to discuss eyelid surgery and it was one of the easiest most rewarding procedures I’ve ever had.
Eyelid surgery or Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes and surrounding area. Whether your concern is excess sagging skin, or fatty deposits on the upper eyelid or bags and droopiness of the lower lids, blepharoplasty is the solution. You may look at family members and notice you’ve inherited a ‘heavy’ eyelid or pesky baggage under the eye, hereditary traits are a great barometer for things to come. If you don’t like what you see, you should discuss all options with a plastic surgeon you can trust, preferably a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
The best surgical candidate is always a healthy non smoker without any serious eye or major medical condition. Eyelid surgery incisions are designed for scars to be easily concealed within the natural structure of the eyelid making them virtually undetectable when fully healed. Upper eyelid surgery can be performed in the office with localized numbing. Sutures are removed around day 5 with a presentable recovery in a week. As with any surgery, compliance is key, rest, ice and elevation expedite the healing process. The results of eyelid surgery are long lasting correcting certain conditions permanently.
If you’re tired of looking tired, come to one of our offices and discuss your options with one of our 6 surgeons and get a full education on the procedure and recovery. Consultations are complimentary and we are currently offering a special on upper eyelid surgery in the office for $2020. See a refreshed version of yourself in 2020 for $2020.
