Because the skin around the eyes is thin and sensitive, it is frequently the first to droop, sag, and wrinkle. Many believe their eyelids make them look older, tired, or depressed. As a result of drooping skin, some people may develop vision impairment. Michigan's Center for Facial Plastic Surgery is home to double fellowship-trained and double board-certified Dr. Ricky Sayal and Dr. Christine Lepoudre, who brings over 40 years of experience. As experienced surgeons, they use their expertise to provide their patients with younger looking eyes through Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery). The procedure can improve vision and prevent sagging of eyelids as people age. Schedule your consultation today!
Younger Looking Eyes
At our office in Detroit Blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, is a treatment that removes skin and adds or removes fat from the eyelids. The term "eyelid lift " is misleading because the eyelid is not genuinely lifted after surgery. Upper blepharoplasty surgery makes use of incisions to remove skin and fat. The skin is then brought together with a tiny suture to allow an eyelid crease formation. Lower eyelid surgery may include skin incisions just beneath the lash line or an incision on the inside of the eyelid. This technique offers access to the eyelid without visible incisions, making it ideal for patients who need fat removed or added.
There are many reasons to undergo Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. Many will tell you that it is often to give yourself a younger look, though there are other advantages as well. Some of these benefits include: Lifting droopy eyelids and getting rid of bags under your eyes; restoring symmetry to your face; making your eyes appear larger; reducing dark circles around your eyes; improving vision by removing excess skin above your upper lids.
Excess skin on your eyelids can be bothersome when you are between 40 and 60 years old. In addition, aging and sun exposure can cause your eyelids to droop and become puffy or heavy, causing extra weight in front of your eyes. If you feel that you've noticed these signs and want them corrected, then blepharoplasty is probably an option that would suit your needs. Most people in good physical shape, with no visual difficulties, and who do not smoke are good candidates for our Detroit Blepharoplasty procedure. Please schedule a consultation today to find out more about our treatment options.
Look Younger Without Looking Tired
Blepharoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis in our state-of-the-art facility. That means you'll be able to go home quickly after the surgery. Only a small number of people require general anesthesia. Instead, in most cases, your surgeon will inject a numbing agent into your eyelids. The upper eyelids are addressed first. Your doctor will then make a minor incision to remove excess skin, muscle, and fat. Lower lid blepharoplasty usually entails the removal of fat, which leads to under-eye bags, as well as possibly a tiny piece of skin if necessary. Inside or outside the eyelid, the incision might be created beneath the lower lashes.
In addition, in some persons, the lower eyelid may be tightened or connected to the bone skeleton. The procedure typically takes two to three hours to complete, depending on individual circumstances. Your doctor will perfectly sculpt your eyelids with delicate hands to ensure your pleasure with your youthful appearance. Once your surgeon has completed your procedure, he will send you home with detailed instructions regarding postoperative care. In most cases of Blepharoplasty Detroit patients are able to return to work within one week after their procedures; however, total healing may take up to six weeks after surgery.
The amount of time you will need to recover after surgery depends on your personal situation and any other procedures that are performed. While some patients are able to return to work in one week, others may take up to six weeks. There is a limit on physical activity during recovery, so your ability to exercise will be affected. In addition, changes in appearance and function after eyelid surgery can lead to stress and anxiety, particularly if you have been wearing glasses or contact lenses for vision correction.
In The Blink of an Eye
While it takes about two weeks for you to see results, full recovery will take three to six months. However, you should be able to enjoy how your eyelids look and function almost immediately. While these results are typically long-lasting, they may fade over time as your body slowly regenerates collagen and skin cells. A touch-up procedure can help maintain your results. The Center for Facial Plastic Surgery uses advanced techniques that provide more natural-looking results: The doctors at CFPS‘s extensive experience allows them to use state-of-the-art techniques that give patients a more natural appearance after their Blepharoplasty surgery.
