Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery
The "Eyes" Have It
They draw attention wherever you go. They are the focal point of your face, the "windows to your soul." You want them to reflect you accurately. The tired and weary look is not the impression you want to make. Time, plus years of sun and movement wear down the elastic collagen fibers. The eyelids begin to sag and the fat pads relax and bag. Eye-lift surgery removes excess skin and fat from around the eyes. This procedure may help you see better and restores a more vibrant and youthful appearance.
In addition to time, heredity plays a role in the contour of your eyes. Existing bags are aggravated by allergies, overwork, and fatigue. Other factors include eye strain, dietary salt, sun exposure, and alcohol.
The Ideal Patient
Any healthy person regardless of age who has drooping eyelids or fat bags is a candidate for blepharoplasty. Motivated patients have the desire to see, look, and feel better.
The Surgical SuiteA Special Place
Cosmetic procedures are performed in The Surgical Suite, a division of Dermatology Associates of Atlanta. The Surgical Suite was one of the first dermatological surgical centers to be fully accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare Inc. Our high tech equipment, caring staff, and qualified anesthesia team all work in concert with your surgeon to provide you with the best care before, during, and after your surgery.
Our most often selected method for lower lids is the no skin incision technique. If excessive skin is present, other techniques are used. Fine lines and wrinkles can be treated later with chemical peeling. Upper lids are corrected by removing the excess skin and fat pads through an incision that is hidden in the natural fold of your lid.
Candidates for eye surgery often make comments like these:
"I have to hold my eyelids up to see; at the end of the day, I'm tired."
"It is useless to apply eye shadow; you can't even see it underneath my folds and no erase stick or disaster cream will ever cover the lower eyelid bags."
"It hate it when my friends think I've been up too late or drinking too much."
