blepharoplasty Drs. Vonu, Blanchard, Zwicklbauer, and Lofgren of the Plastic Surgery Center of Hampton Roads encourages patients to find out more about the ways in which facial plastic surgery can make them feel more confident in their appearance. One of the treatments available at their AAAASF Certified surgery center is the blepharoplasty, which is a surgical procedure that addresses the eyes. What is blepharoplasty? Blepharoplasty is the medical term for elective surgery on the eyelids. This includes both the upper and lower eyelids. With the care and attention of our experienced staff, patients can address issues in this area including: • Bags under the eyes • Drooping upper eyelids • Excess skin What can be achieved with the eyelid lift procedure? Many patients who are interested in this procedure are dealing with concerns such as tired, drooping eyes. It may negatively impact their overall appearance, making them look exhausted or significantly aged. Men and women don’t realize how the excess skin and fat around the eyelids can affect the way they look in a dramatic way. With the blepharoplasty procedure, most patients report looking younger and more well-rested than ever before! What can I expect from recovery following blepharoplasty? During the initial consultation appointment with our surgical professionals, patients will learn about the recovery process. Patients will need to take some time off of certain activities to ensure proper healing and recovery. These measures are also in place to reduce the risk of infection, which is a risk with any surgical treatment. Overall, the healing process following blepharoplasty is minor and many patients are glad they had the surgery performed. Imagine the possibilities with plastic surgery!
