Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Look Younger, Simply.
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Can Turn Back the Clock.
Open Your Eyes to a Younger You
Your eyes can make you look older, more tired, or even sadder or angrier than you actually are. Puffy eyes, under eye bags, and droopy eyelids all conspire to add years to your face, and can even affect your vision. Luckily, you can change your look—and your outlook—with cosmetic eyelid surgery. In some cases, blepharoplasty may not always be the first choice. Newer, less invasive techniques that utilize fillers or fat transfer can add volume around the eyes or the brow, smooth wrinkles and add fullness to hollows (in fact, after consulting with Dr. Kayem about blepharoplasty, you may find that fillers or fat transfer are a better alternative for you).
Beautiful Results with Blepharoplasty
Compared to other surgeries, blepharoplasty has almost no pain, has less swelling, and has the fastest healing period of any cosmetic surgery. Because of this, it is one of the most satisfying cosmetic procedures performed. Our eyes tend to age more quickly than other parts. Blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery) removes excess skin (and sometimes fat) from the upper and lower eyelids to give you a natural, rested and rejuvenated look.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure and Recovery Time
Dr. Kayem performs cosmetic eyelid surgery under general or local anesthesia. He makes fine incisions in preexisting natural creases, making them virtually invisible within a week. After closing the incisions with tiny sutures, the procedure is finished, typically in just one to two hours. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is a similar procedure, which removes fatty pockets from below the lower eyelid without any skin incision. In this type of surgery, Dr, Kayem makes incisions inside the lower eyelid and then removes or repositions the fat. Sutures are typically not required, and there is no scarring at all.
You will probably experience some minor swelling and bruising after blepharoplasty, but those issues resolve after just a few days. Dr. Kayem will let you know when you can resume normal and/or strenuous activities. In some cases, a portion of the costs of blepharoplasty may be covered by insurance if your droopy eyelids are impeding your sight.
