Service: Facial Rejuvenation, Medical Term:

  • Blepharoplasty
    • Explanation:

      This procedure is number one for patients who have tired looking eyes from age, sun, and stress. It removes the excess upper eyelids skin and always is done in a way that you look natural and yourself, with a refreshed look. The lower lid fat pads can be removed to take away that tired look. 15 minutes is all it takes for each eyelid to be corrected under local anesthesia. Sedation can be used during surgery for the patients that prefer to be more relaxed.

      The most common changes in the eyelids is the development of excess skin and protrusion of fat to create a "puffy" exterior. This aging process is usually hereditary but can be affected by nonhereditary factors such as, sun or tabacco exposure. 

      Sometimes the lower lids can be addressed through an internal incision so that there is no external sign of an operation. Although the main risks of this surgery is bleeding, infection, temporary irritation, and an inability to fully close the eyes, or lowering of the lid.
