But before you come in to meet with Dr. Altamira, it might be helpful to read about some of the problems that send patients to our office for eyelid surgery.
Eyelid surgery can improve your appearance in multiple ways
Our patients have one or more issues with the area around their eyes, such as:
- Wrinkles and crow’s feet
- Sagging skin
- Droopy skin that interferes with vision
- Dark circles under the eyes
- Tired looking eyes
- Aged eyes
Blepharoplasty is designed to put an end to puffy, sagging and tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from your upper eyelid, lower eyelid – and sometimes both.
The procedure is popular with both women and men
Eyelid surgery can help Improve your eyes and entire facial appearance, but it’s also often performed as a strictly medical procedure to remove excess skin out of a patient’s field of vision. Saggy skin around the eyes can make it difficult to see and can cause headaches from the muscle strain of holding the eyes open wide enough to see past the excess skin folds.
The procedure is fairly simple
The effects of blepharoplasty can be achieved in as little as 45 minutes, with most surgeries performed in our offices under local anesthesia. With no complications, most patients go home a few hours after their procedure and only need to rest at home for about a week. You are likely to experience some mild pain and bruising, but you can expect to look rested back at your regular activities in about two weeks.
