More than any other facial feature, eyes have a tremendous impact on appearance. Like 70 percent of adult Americans, you may consider your eyes your most attractive facial feature, but with time, the appearance and attractiveness of your eyes may deteriorate. Eyelid puffiness, wrinkles, and bags are a telltale sign of age.
Eyelid surgery can remove bags, puffiness, and excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can be combined with laser or chemical resurfacing to tighten skin, eliminate dark circles, and smooth crow’s feet. When it is accompanied by an eyebrow or forehead lift, eyes are more open. Sagging eyebrows are eliminated and forehead wrinkles are lessened.
The procedure takes between one and three hours. Local or light general anesthesia is most frequently used. Swelling and bruising is reduced with cold compresses. The sutures are removed after one week. Afterwards, you look refreshed and alert. Most people will not know you had eyelid surgery unless you tell them. Many of Dr. Lyos’ patients comment how amazed they are how a little improvement in their eyes can produce such a dramatic impact on their appearance.
