Am I A candiate for eyelid surgery?
A good candidate for an eyelid lift usually:
- Has good overall health
- Does not smoke
- Does not have serious eye conditions
- Has healthy facial tissue and muscle
A patient with eye disease, thyroid disorder, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure may not be a good candidate for an eyelid lift. It is very important for a patient to have realistic expectations for the procedure. The procedure will enhance your appearance and improve self-confidence but, will not radically change the look of the face.
What Improvements Should i expect after my blepharoplasty?
Dr. Petropoulos performs eyelid surgery with precision, skill, and a refined aesthetic sense to give her patients a natural looking rejuvenation. Whether it’s your upper eyelids, lower eye area, or both, this procedure provides many improvements including:
- Removing loose eyelid skin and excess fat deposits to restore definition along the eyelid crease
- Reducing puffy under-eye bags to reveal a more rested look
- Improving peripheral vision caused by significant upper eyelid hooding
Your beauty is important to Dr. Petropoulos. Right from the start, she will take the time to educate you in your surgical and non-surgical options and help you find the best way to age gracefully. Some patients combine their eyelid surgery with a brow lift; others may add in BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments.
Eyelid Surgery Procedure
An upper blepharoplasty typically lasts for about an hour as does a lower blepharoplasty. With meticulous detail and an artful eye, Dr. Petropoulos removes excess skin and fat to ensure that her patients gain a refreshed and renewed look, but not one that is unnaturally tight or wide eyed. Often the prolapsing eyelid fat needs to be repositioned to alleviate the eyelid hollowness that comes with aging. Some patients need a filler, BOTOX treatment, or laser skin resurfacing as well, to further correct the hollowness or wrinkles around the corners of the eyes.
Eyelid Surgery recovery
With Dr. Petropoulos’ meticulous technique there is rarely any swelling or bruising, and this is further prevented if you use cold compresses and sleep with the head elevated for the first few days. Stitches are removed 7 days after surgery, at which point you can return to routine everyday activities, including work.
Your New Look
Dr. Petropoulos’ eyelid surgery patients are consistently thrilled with their improvements. Their naturally refreshed look helps her patients take on the day with renewed energy and inner confidence.
