As the skin ages, puffy lower eyelids and droopy upper eyelids can develop, causing you to look constantly tired or even appear older than you actually are. At Fine Arts Skin and Laser, our blepharoplasty procedures can refresh your appearance and help you look as young as you feel.
Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how blepharoplasty can rejuvenate your upper and lower eyelids with natural-looking, long-lasting results.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Also known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty can focus on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both depending on your individual condition. In severe cases of upper eyelid drooping, peripheral vision can also be impaired. There are many beauty products and cosmetics that promise to revitalize this sensitive area, but blepharoplasty surgery can create more dynamic results that last.
What Happens During Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty can help rejuvenate your eyelids by:
- Removing excess skin
- Removing excess fat deposits
- Tightening underlying muscles
The extent of your procedure will depend on your individual condition, preferences, and aesthetic goals, which will be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Hartman and our medical team. Typically, incisions are hidden in the natural creases of your eyelids in order to minimize visible scarring.
What is the Recovery Like?
After your eyelid surgery, your eyes may be lightly bandaged, and any discomfort can be easily managed with cold compresses and medicine that will be prescribed to you by Dr. Hartman. Recovery can be different for every patient, but bruising and swelling is common and may last for a short period of time as your eyes heal. Dr. Hartman will monitor your progress through follow up appointments and advise you on when to safely return to work and normal activities.
Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
The best way to determine if blepharoplasty is the best way to achieve your aesthetic goals is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hartman and our medical team. We will evaluate your health, medical history, preferences, and several other factors and discuss the treatment options that are available to you.
If you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty, we will create a customized surgical plan for you and discuss what you can expect, how much time you should take off from work, and all safety information relevant to your procedure.
