Blepharoplasty | Eyelid Surgery
If your eyes always appear droopy or you maintain a tired expression because of sagging eyelids, you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery in Atlanta. Upper or lower eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is designed to lift droopy eyelids and create a refreshed, rejuvenated appearance. If you need something more aggressive than Botox, eyelid surgery may be the ideal solution for you.
Key Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery offers both aesthetic and functional benefits to many patients. If you have puffy eyes because of genetics or your eyes droop downward because of loose skin or the aging process, we can restore your youthful look with eyelid surgery. Some of the benefits of eyelid surgery include:
- Reduces puffiness in the upper and lower eyelids
- Tightens loose skin
- Removes undereye bags
- Smooths out lines and wrinkles
- Restores the tissue after skin cancer removal around the eyes
- Improves vision
You may be interested in undergoing eyelid surgery to maintain a more youthful look, improve vision, or a combination of both. We can discuss your goals and the procedure in more detail during your consultation.
What to Expect with Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is a relatively simple procedure and is performed right in our office under local anesthesia. It typically only takes about an hour to perform this procedure. Incisions are made in the creases of the upper lid and right below the lashes on the lower lids, depending on the areas that need to be treated. Dr. McCluskey will remove excess tissue around the incisions and close them with stitches.
This procedure can be combined with BOTOX, a brow lift, and other procedures for even better results. We can review all options to rejuvenate the delicate eye area during your consultation.
