Eyelid Surgery, or Blepharoplasty, corrects droopy, puffy eyes, rejuvenates a tired appearance, and creates a more youthful and refreshed look.
The eyelids are one of the first facial features to show signs of aging. Sagging upper eyelids may require an eyelift surgery. Puffy lower eyelids can belie a more youthful and energetic personality. Occasionally, hereditary factors contribute to puffiness of the lower eyelids even in younger patients. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can restore vitality to the eyes. During upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Economou performs perfectly hidden incisions to remove saggy upper eyelid skin. In lower blepharoplasty, Dr. Economou often places the incision inside the lid, in order to avoid any scars. Excess fat from the eyelids is removed or repositioned to restore a youthful appearance. Redundant lower eyelid skin can be treated with a pinch excision or with laser skin resurfacing. Swelling or bruising resolves in about ten days, and most patients return to a full schedule within two weeks. Dr. Economou offers other procedures such as brow lift, facelift, Botox treatments, laser skin resurfacing, filler injections and fat grafting to compliment the results from blepharoplasty.
As the overall intent of the surgery is to give you a more youthful and refreshed look. It would be beneficial for Dr. Economou to view some old photographs, which could provide a template or model to work towards. Contact our clinic today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Economou.
