Loose, saggy, redundant skin of the lids and puffy eyes are among the most common complaints heard from patients who are starting to notice the signs of aging.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can restore a youthful appearance to the eye area. The upper and lower eyelids are lifted and loose or excess skin and fat tissue is removed. The procedure is limited to the eyes and can be combined with other methods to improve other areas of the face.
Dr. Malouf and his team perform this procedure in the office surgical suite under local anesthesia. Incisions are made in the natural crease of the eyelid, which results in minimal scarring, excess skin and fat pads are then removed and the incisions are sutured. The procedure takes about two hours and is done on an out-patient basis.
The post-operative effects are minimal and temporary, with most patients able to perform light duties within a couple of days.
