Eyelid Surgery Southampton, PA
Centrally located in Southampton and serving Philadelphia, Bucks, and Montgomery Counties, the Kole Plastic Surgery Center performs eyelid surgery for patients desiring plastic surgery.
What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery can remove wrinkles and lines in the upper or lower lids and surrounding tissues, giving you the appearance of being well rested and alert. Known by the technical name blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery may also be commonly performed at the same time as a forehead lift, especially if the patient has significant skin overhang in the upper eyelids. This procedure can eliminate puffiness and bags under lower lids and hooded skin on upper lids, making you appear younger and healthier. This procedure may also help you to no longer have vision problems related to overhanging eyelids. Any scars from the eye lift will be hidden in your natural eyelid creases, making them almost indiscernible. Contact our office today and schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Kole to see if eyelid surgery is right for you.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Do you have excess, hanging skin covering the natural fold of the upper eyelids? Do you have loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids over the eyelashes? Do your upper and lower eyelids appear puffy, making your eyes look tired and aged, or do you have deep grooves under your eyes? If so, eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, may be the answer to solving these issues. Blepharoplasty will often restore a youthful, bright, and wide-eyed appearance to the patient.
What Happens During the Eyelid Surgery Procedure?
The procedure can remove deposits of fat that make the eyes look puffy or create “bags under the eyes.” Dr. Kole can also trim away sagging or loose skin that interrupts the pleasing contour of the eyelids. The lower eyelid procedure can also be performed by making an incision inside the lid called transconjunctival, to remove the extra fat without making an incision on the external eyelid skin. The excess skin and fat of the upper lid is removed from an incision in the crease of the upper lid. This incision location is very effective in hiding the scar.
What Happens after the Eyelid Surgery Procedure?
Your face and eyelids may be bruised and swollen. In addition, your eyes may be itchy and dry following the procedure. These aftereffects generally fade two to four weeks after surgery, and then you can see the final results after surgery. Dr. Kole will give you very detailed postoperative instructions before and after your surgery to help minimize recovery time and maximize healing after eyelid surgery.
