One of the most attractive things about a person is their eyes. They communicate all kinds of emotions and are really the window to the soul. Unfortunately, they are also the one of the first things to show signs of aging. Since eyelids have finer skin, they develop fine lines sooner than many other areas. Eyelids can also develop fatty deposits, causing drooping. Eyelid surgery can reverse all of this.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, are designed to address the droop in your eyelids and remove excess fatty deposits from under your eyes. They restore your youthful and alert appearance. It is not uncommon to couple eyelid surgery with a facelift procedure as well.
During the procedure, Dr. Trenton C. Jones, M.D. will make careful incisions that follow the natural creases and contours of the skin around your eyes. This greatly reduces any noticeable scarring. Incisions are then made around the lower eyelid to gain access to the fatty deposits under your eyes. Excess fat is removed and remaining fat is sculpted to improve the overall contours around the eye and lessen some of the noticeable lines.
Here at Cascade Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa, eyelid surgeries are often performed on an outpatient basis, requiring deep sedation. You will need to arrange to have someone drive you home and help you out for a time once there. During recovery, you may experience minor bruising and swelling. This will naturally go away over time. A chemical or laser peel might also be recommended to reduce any discoloration in your lower eyelid.
Blepharoplasty is a quick, common procedure for both men and women. It can turn back the clock on your appearance and give you the bright, confident eyes you want.
