Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Treatments for puffy eyes and this is typical when we talk about patients who say they have bags under their eyes, which is usually due to the fact that the fat around the eyeballs starts to pierce the skin a few times genetic problem so that patients can identify other family members, such as their parents, who had a similar problem. There are two different ways to treat swollen eyes.
The first method is to inject a filler underneath which the fat will bulge out to smooth the fat’s swelling so that there is a smooth contour from the lower eyelid to the cheek. The alternative method is to remove the fat with an operation called blepharoplasty of the lower eyelid.
There are some patients who present an important event and want their face to look fantastic like a wedding and for them an easy decision guess that it will be a temporary solution that if you want to keep it, you will have to do it again in the future, there are other patients who have the attitude that they want an intervention that they can perform at one Timing and to be ready and for these patients surgery is a better option. Each option can achieve a very good result.
This obviously depends on the anatomy of the patient. The operation on the upper eyelid is very often performed only under local anesthesia. This is one of the reasons for it. It is one of my absolute favorite surgeries, so we can often do it in the office when the patient is awake. I simply numb the upper eyelids and then perform the surgery to remove the skin and fat from the upper eyelids to improve the overall appearance, recovery after eyelid surgery, either an upper eyelid surgery or a lower eyelid surgery is generally a very easy recovery.
The problem is that most of the patiens The eyes will get bruised so from a cosmetic point of view, they need to be aware that people they, their friends, family and colleagues see at work, from the point of view of the pain bruises, most patients have no pain at all In addition to a Tylenol or ibuprofen, I must not take painkillers immediately after the procedure. One of the reasons why it is one of my favorite methods for upper and lower eyelid surgery is that it affects their appearance when these procedures are used. Compared to recovery, which is very simple, the recovery is dramatic.
Therefore, the results are amazing when time and money are invested. Many patients are pleased to hear that their skin on the upper eyelid hangs so much that it blocks their vision that their insurance company will consider it a medically necessary procedure that they will pay for if they undergo an Ophthalmologist visual field examination logistician or optometrist that show that the excess upper eyelid skin actually blocks their eyesight, so these patients could tell the insurance company that we can treat them to improve their eyesight and improve them as a nice bonus. Also, their looks will often ask me whether they need to treat all parts of their face at the same time.
They fear that if we only speak to their eyes, for example, their face does not match other areas of their face that look older. That’s absolutely not the case. Many times we were able to address only one area of the face and especially the eyes. For different people, the aging process occurs differently. Some patients experience more aging around the jaw in the neck, other patients experience more aging changes around the eyes, and what bothers patients about the symptoms of aging certainly depends on the patients themselves.
So it is absolutely true that there is no single size -fits-all for all patients and we tailor our interventions based on what the patient wants and what we can achieve with the treatment plan that we develop along with all of our facial rejuvenation procedures, Including eyelid surgery is to achieve natural-looking results. We want you to freshen up. We do not want you to look different. We want you to feel rested and happy, and that things in life are going very well, and so are our patients. I am very pleased with what we can give them in terms of very natural-looking results.
