Facial volume loss, sagging, and wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process. When it affects the eyes, it can leave you looking tired and worn out, and even obstruct your vision. Sometimes the eyes are obstructed by extra skin, puffy under eye bags, or hedged by crow’s feet wrinkles. For those in Tucson, Arizona, Dr. Eades offers eyelid surgery. After this procedure, the area around the eyes becomes smoother allowing for a crisper and more alert look to your eyes.
In Tucson, eyelid surgery has multiple applications. The surgery is used to:
Blepharoplasty can correct both eye areas, as well as the upper and lower lids. Upper lid surgery, the more common of the two, removes wrinkles and heavy lids. Lower eyelid surgery is a more invasive procedure removing tissue and repositioning surrounding tendons. An eyelid surgery cannot address midface volume loss or forehead wrinkles. Patients can choose to combine another procedure like the browlift, facelift, Botox, or fillers. Depending on your needs and wishes, Dr. Eades can determine which surgery, or a combination of surgeries, can give you the results you desire.
A good candidate for eyelid surgery is looking to refresh the appearance of their eyes to make them look more alert. You may benefit from eyelid surgery if your eyelids are heavy, puffy, or tired looking. Deep eye creases can be eliminated and made smooth during your procedure. Patients who benefit most from a procedure live a healthy lifestyle and abstain from smoking and other habits. Many patients in the Catalina Foothills area have experienced the benefits of blepharoplasty.
Eyelid surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia for your comfort during the procedure process. An incision is then made in the natural crease of the eye, resulting in minimal scarring. Excess skin and tissue is then removed to give the eyes a more alert appearance. The incisions are then closed with sutures.
An eyelid surgery procedure performed in Tucson will require some patient recovery time. Before surgery, patients are encouraged to find a designated caregiver. This person should be able to drive you home from the surgical facility after your procedure. Your eyes may feel puffy and numb for the first few days after surgery and inhibit vision. These symptoms as well as bruising and discomfort will subside over the next two weeks. For some patients, returning to work within 10 days post procedure is possible. Otherwise, Dr. Eades can inform you when you can return to your normal daily routine. Carefully caring for your eyes will allow you to experience the most from your results!
After an eyelid rejuvenation procedure, patients can enjoy more alert and younger-looking eyes without excess tissue obstructing their vision. The eyes can affect your entire appearance, leading to a refreshed look that lasts for many years. The eyelid procedure can improve your age-related sagging, but cannot stop future aging from occurring. If future wrinkles occur, you might consider treatment with Botox to maintain your results.
