Sometimes, even after a great night’s sleep, your eyes still look tired and droopy-lidded. It’s hard to feel alive and vibrant with loose, baggy skin framing your eyes. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. Each year, thousands of men and women choose cosmetic eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty in Virginia Beach, to help restore a more energetic and youthful appearance. Dr. Vendetti’s approach corrects sagging eyelids, removes the fatty pouches beneath the eyes and removes the excess skin from the upper eyelids.
Blepharoplasty, or cosmetic eyelid surgery, is a procedure that eliminates puffiness around the eyes. Excess skin and tissue can reside on the upper eyelids or below the lower eyelids, hiding the natural contours of the eye and hindering your vision. People might describe your appearance as “tired” or “stressed out,” while you’re actually wide awake. However, the condition might be no fault of your own; genetics and the natural aging process are often more to blame than ones lifestyle.
The following imperfections may be indications for eyelid surgery:
- Puffy bags under the eyelids
- Sagging upper eyelids
- Excess eyelid skin that creates a fold
- Issues with vision due to imperfections of the eyelid
How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?
Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure performed under iv sedation or general anesthesia. During eyelid surgery, Dr. Vendetti removes fat deposits and excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. If desired, slight aesthetic changes can be made to the eyelids as well. Eyelid surgery techniques vary to a certain extent. Generally, incisions are made in the natural eyelid crease or inside the lower eyelid, and excess tissue is carefully removed. The most appropriate technique will vary with each patient.
After Eyelid Surgery
During recovery from blepharoplasty, patients may experience some tightness, swelling, light sensitivity, and blurry vision. These effects should subside within 48 hours. Top Virginia cosmetic surgeon Dr. Vendetti is dedicated to performing this procedure (as with any surgery) in a safe manner that protects your priceless vision. If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your eyes and eyelids, you may really appreciate the aesthetic changes eyelid surgery can produce. After eyelid surgery, you’ll exhibit a livelier, better-rested appearance and possibly better vision.
To get the best aesthetic improvement, many patients choose to undergo brow lift surgery in Virginia Beach as well. For more information on the risks, benefits, and cost of eyelid surgery, contact the office of Dr. Sergio Vendetti.
