Blepharoplasty Can Rejuvenate Sagging, Tired-looking Eyes
As we age, skin begins to lose its elasticity. Areas where the skin is thinner and more delicate can begin to sag, especially around the eyes. A customized blepharoplasty performed by Dr. Ashish K. Jain in Columbus, GA, can help tighten the skin around your eyes for a younger-looking, refreshed appearance. This simple cosmetic procedure will be designed to address your unique concerns for superior, customized results.
Designing Your Procedure
A blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. The procedure can remove excess skin and fat to create a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Together with Dr. Jain, you can determine the extent of your procedure.
During your consultation with Dr. Jain, you can plan a customized cosmetic eye surgery to address your unique concerns.
He will discuss your options, as well as the issues you wish to address, and will explain the surgical approaches that can best accomplish your goals. During your initial appointment, you will decide where your incisions will be placed and Dr. Jain can explain what you should expect from treatment.
Benefits of Treatment
A blepharoplasty can provide a number of aesthetic and functional benefits. By removing excess fat and skin, Dr. Jain can create a smoother lid, eliminating sagging or bulging that can make you look tired and prematurely aged. He can also provide additional treatment with an advanced laser to decrease the appearance of crow's feet, fine lines, and wrinkles. In addition, excessively droopy eyelids can impede your vision and limit your ability to wear contact lenses or glasses. By undergoing a blepharoplasty, you will be able to see more clearly, as well as eliminate any discomfort caused by sagging skin.
Before your procedure, you will receive the appropriate anesthesia and sedation for your comfort. Dr. Jain uses specialized techniques and places the incisions in areas that help minimize scarring. If you receive surgery on your upper eye, the incision will typically be made in the crease of the eye, and the size and exact location will depend on the issues you are correcting. For a lower eyelid surgery, the incision will be placed just below the lash line. Dr. Jain will then gently pull the skin tight, removing excess tissue and fat before expertly rearranging the skin and suturing your incisions closed.
You will return home the same day as your procedure, and we will provide you with full aftercare instructions. You will typically require about one week of downtime to allow swelling and inflammation to subside. Your eyes may appear bloodshot and swollen, especially in the days immediately following surgery. While your eyes are healing, it is important to not wear makeup or contact lenses. Dr. Jain will let you know during your follow-up appointment when you can begin wearing cosmetics and corrective lenses again.
