Facial Plastic Surgery is Not Paint by Numbers

Facial Plastic Surgery is Not Paint by Numbers

Your face is your public façade. It reflects your genetics and life choices. Combine this with the social pressures to look your best, and it quickly becomes apparent that one's facial appearance can have deep psychological impact on self-confidence.

We are all hard-wired to recognize things we define as attractive or abnormal. It is this refined sense of facial aesthetics we all possess that makes facial cosmetic procedures so demanding. Good results should go unnoticed, while bad results can be impossible to disguise.

When performing surgical or non-surgical facial rejuvenation, cosmetic rhinoplasty or facial reconstruction, the ultimate goal should be to create a natural, beautiful appearance. Achieving this goal consistently requires artistic vision, surgical talent, meticulous attention to detail and years of experience.

Is Laser Blepharoplasty Right for You?

Excess skin and puffiness found in the upper or lower eyelids can be modified with blepharoplasty surgery. With the most technologically advanced laser used to perform this procedure, there is virtually no bleeding when sculpting and modifying excess fatty tissue. Although patients are given medication for pain following blepharoplasty surgery, most never need to take any medication.

Your Surgical Experience

Blepharoplasty is performed in an outpatient setting, which allows patients to rest at home immediately following the procedure. Patients are usually administered mild sedation from an IV medication inserted through a vein in their arm. The sedation ensures that patients are totally comfortable during the procedure and have no memory of the surgery. Local anesthesia is then applied to the operative area to further ensure total patient comfort. While the length of this procedure varies from patient to patient, on average, surgery takes 30 minutes for both upper eyelids and 30 minutes for both lower eyelids.

After Surgery

Following the procedure, patients are observed for a short while before returning home. Patients go home without any patch or bandages. The first two days following surgery should be spent in a relaxed environment with the head elevated, applying antibiotic ointment and frozen ice packs to the eyelids several times per day. This will help keep swelling to a minimum.

Before and AfterInitially the eyelids may feel tight, but this sensation usually resolves over the first week or so. On average, one week following this procedure, approximately 70-80 percent of swelling will have dissipated. After two weeks, close to 90 percent of the swelling will have dissipated, while the remaining 10 percent will decrease over the next few weeks to a month.
