eye lids

The natural aging process will cause your face to undergo a series of changes. Some of which won’t be the most desirable. One area that depicts these changes the most, is the area around the eyes. The skin around the eyes will eventually start to develop a droop appearance as a result of sagging skin. In cases such as these, blepharoplasty is often recommended to eradicate the loose skin and bring back the youthful look in your eyes.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that helps to give the eyes a youthful rejuvenation by getting rid of the excess skin that tends to form as a result of the natural aging process. During the procedure, we will work diligently to remove excess skin and fatty deposits while repositioning any underlying tissue and muscle in the area. This is done to provide the eyes with a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

Good Candidates for Blepharoplasty

Good candidates for blepharoplasty are those who suffer from a degree of sagging skin that contributes to a much older appearance. Those dealing with obstructed vision caused by saggy skin will also benefit from this procedure. Ideal patients for blepharoplasty should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations.

Preparing For Your Blepharoplasty Procedure

Before undergoing blepharoplasty, you must first schedule a consultation at Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery. During your consultation, we will perform an examination of your eyes and ask you about your medical history to determine if blepharoplasty is the right cosmetic procedure for you.

During this time, we will also provide you with pre-operative instructions that you will need to adhere to in order to achieve the best results. These instructions may require you to stop smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking certain medications. This will help reduce the risk of complications during the procedure and promote faster recovery.

The Blepharoplasty Procedure

A blepharoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning those who choose to undergo the surgery can safely return home on the same day. To begin, we will administer an anesthetic to help you feel comfortable during the surgery. We will then make a small incision to gain access to the underlying tissue.

Through this incision, excess skin and fat will be removed while the weakened muscle structures are repaired. Once the desired corrections are made, we will close the incisions and bandage the treatment area.

Recovery After Blepharoplasty

As with any other procedure, blepharoplasty will result in some swelling and bruising after the surgery, but this is temporary and will subside. Any lingering discomfort will be addressed with the use of prescribed medication. It’s important that you take some time to rest and recover after the surgery. This means refraining from strenuous physical activities and taking some time off work.

Patient Testimonials

"I can honestly say that I am impressed"

“I have had Ultherapy treatment and I can honestly say that I am impressed. Each treatment brings an immediate tightening effect and then over the next few months you see your skin continue to improve. It is excellent at stimulating the deeper skin layers. The collagen in my face gets a major boost – and so does my confidence level! This is a treatment that actually produces real and noticeable results. I now have a maintenance treatment on a yearly basis. The treatment is completely tolerable with no downtime. In my opinion, there are not too many treatments available that can give you impressive results and no time out for healing, you’re good to go. You should approach the treatment with realistic expectations and afterwards be pleasantly surprised. It is not a miracle worker, but it just might be the next closest thing. My experience has been completely positive and I love to get a big bang for my buck. Ultherapy is an amazing treatment and a very good investment. Aging is inevitable, but who says you can’t do it gracefully and at a slower rate. I will also say that it is incredibly important to have it performed by a trusted provider who is well trained with this procedure. Abby has both the credentials as well as the experience with this treatment and I trust her without reservation. If you are considering Ultherapy, make an appointment with Abby today.”
