About Eyelid Surgery
A person's eyes are a beautiful component of the face that deserves to be shown, but sometimes an excess of skin above or under the eyes can create an aging facial appearance. Atlanta, GA plastic surgeon Dr. Fara Movagharnia offers eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to remove excess skin and lift the lower or upper eyelid, creating a softer look. So many men and women undergo eyelid surgery at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery to reduce puffy bulges, leading to improved functionality and facial appearance. Upper and lower eyelid surgery creates a fresh, youthful appearance and can produce subtle yet noticeable improvements.
Eyelid surgery is a facial cosmetic enhancement that is sought out by both women, as well as men. During your private consultation, treatment options will be discussed with Dr. Movagharnia based on your symptoms that need to be corrected. In most cases, ideal candidates are frustrated with excess, hanging skin and folds above their eyes or bulging skin just under the bottom eyelid. These irregularities can cause vision impairment that can get in the way of daily activities. For a more awake appearance, blepharoplasty may be the appropriate procedure for you. If you have loose skin that droops on the upper eyelid or bags and circles under the eyes, blepharoplasty can correct this to provide you with a younger appearance.
Eyelid Lift Reviews
"It's Never Too Late- 65 Years Old and Thrilled with New Look!! - Atlanta, GA - After a hugely successful tummy tuck in January 2011 I had no hesitation whatsoever in contacting Dr Fara to discuss blepharoplasty.The procedure was just as expected, my eyes were covered with dressings, changed regularly, and an hour later 8 was driven home. I continued using iced water towels, rested and felt no discomfort and certainly no pain. Dr Fara called to check that all was well.Over the days I followed a protein diet, as Dr Fara suggested, drank lots of water and took vitamin C tablets, all to help my swift recovery. I spent a few days at a resort but stayed out of the sun and away from the beach, but relaxed and enjoyed the fresh air and felt fine.Over the weeks the stitches dissolved, slower than I expected and the bruising subsided and by the end of 6 months my eyes looked normal. Bearing in mind I was 65 years old and the recovery takes longer it was a perfect result.Week by week: 1 lots of stitches intact, bruising coming out- wore sunglasses all of the time when out!!!2 still looked as though I had had a big fight and most black stitches were visible.3 most stitches by now had dissolved and eyes were less red.4 just corner stitches left.5 little redness around eyes due to sensitive skin.6 new me!! Eyes more open, look more alert and under eyes are smoother.1 year later:My eyes look great. If I am very tired they become red, but just looks as though I am wearing eye shadow, so no problem!Conclusion:I am thrilled with my new look. My face looks fresher, eyes wider and a younger look.Another wonderful piece of magic.Thank you Dr Fara.Thank you also to the wonderful and supporting staff."- H. / RealSelf / Jul 26, 2016
Prior to eyelid surgery, general anesthesia will be given. This procedure may be done on the top eyelid by itself, on the bottom eyelid, or a blend of both upper and lower during the same surgery.
Upper eyelid surgery assists in diminishing the hanging of skin that impairs vision and creates a more appealing eyelid appearance. The incision point is often placed along the lash line or crease to trim away tissue and fat.
Lower eyelid surgery is performed to improve puffy skin under the lower lid. In most cases, an incision is placed just under the lash line to surgically remove fatty tissue, and the skin is delicately lifted to produce a smoother look.
What to Expect
Blepharoplasty can take up to three hours based on whether both upper and lower eyelids are treated. After the procedure, you should expect a few days to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Ice packs can assist in reducing bruising and swelling. The outcomes from blepharoplasty may last a decade or longer and although the results are long lasting, remember aging does not stop.
