Your eyes, it has been said, are the windows to your soul. It is a shame then, when we age and begin to see those windows obscured by bulging fatty tissue and drooping skin that has lost much of its elasticity. A great deal of looking old and tired has to do with the way the delicate skin around the eyes begins to appear loose, wrinkled, and puffy. Such effects are normal results of the passage of time and can be hereditary, and even those of us with excellent skin-care regimens are eventually subject to aging eyes. Eyelid Surgery, or blepharoplasty, can restore a fresh, youthful appearance to your eyes by a lifting and tucking. The Eyelid Surgery 1Aesthetic residents can count on is found at the 1Aesthetic, where the refreshed feeling of youth and the restoration of that vibrant look is just a phone call away.
How does Dr. Khan approach Blepharoplasty? What happens at the consultation?
When you consider getting Eyelid Surgery, Dr. T.G. Khan, the medical director and chief surgeon at the 1Aesthetic, will explain the procedure in detail before any decisions are made. He will tell you in detail how small, hidden incisions will be made along the upper eyelid line creases and sometimes along the skin of the outer lower eyelid rim as well. He will explain the procedure of removal of fatty tissue, known as transconjunctival blepharoplasty, and he will detail how the fatty tissue and muscle will be separated from the skin in order to remove exactly what is needed and no more. Dr. T.G. Khan may also recommend performing dot laser resurfacing during your Eyelid Surgery to further eliminate wrinkles and tighten your skin. Whatever his professional recommendation may be for you, he is an expert in eyelid and facial rejuvenation to make you look as young as you feel.
What is Eyelid Surgery like? Is there a lot of pain involved?
Typically, you will experience your Eyelid Surgery under pain-free local anesthesia in an outpatient setting in the office. You have the option of taking a tablet to relax you during the short procedure. You will then be able to return home within an hour or two of the procedure. Although you typically will not require pain medication, you will receive a prescription for pain medicine to alleviate any possible discomfort that may arise during the recovery process. 7 to 10 days later, the stitches are removed. As long as you wear protective sunglasses when outdoors, you should be able to resume your normal activities within a few days to a week of the surgery. Then, before you know it, your surgery will be healed and you will be able to reveal your new, youthful look to all your friends and family.
