The skin around our eyes is very fragile and tends to deteriorate more quickly than other areas of the face. In fact, in some extreme cases the excess skin on the upper eyelid or brow area will droop and disallow the eye from fully opening. Of course, creases, wrinkles, and sagging are much more common in the eyelids and surrounding area. Regardless, the cumulative effect of all this is that one looks sleep or tired constantly, thus showing our true age; and as we all know, our appearance is directly related to our confidence, which in turn effects how we feel.
If any or all of the above symptoms apply to you then Blepharoplasty, also known as Eyelid Surgery, may be a good choice for you--if you are in good health, have heavy or drooping eyelids, puffy bags under your eyes, and have a realistic goal. All of these conditions should be discussed between you and your board certified Plastic Surgeon of choice, in this case, Dr. Eisemann. Once you have scheduled your procedure, you should expect it to take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours with a complete recovery time of up to 10 days.
Have a wonderful day from Dr. Michael Eisemann and all of us at the Cosmetic Surgery Center in Houston!
