If you have been noticing that your lower eyelids seem to be drooping more and more, making you look older than you really are, or if your upper eyelids have started sagging so much that they are blocking your vision, you should start thinking about eyelid surgery. Medically known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can correct problems of both the upper and lower eyelids.
When Dr. Rod speaks with his patients about eyelid surgery, one of their biggest questions is regarding the longevity of the procedure. In this blog, we will answer that question, as well as provide you with a little more information about how Dr. Rod can rejuvenate your eyes with upper blepharoplasty and a lower blepharoplasty.
Phoenix men and women who have to deal with upper eyelids that droop can find relief by having upper eyelid surgery. Some patients only have mild drooping of the upper eyelid making them look excessively tired and older than they really are. While on the other hand, some men and women have eyelids that droop so low they obstruct their vision.
During the upper eyelid procedure, Dr. Rod will create a very small incision in the natural crease of your upper eyelid. This incision will allow him to remove the excess skin from the eyelid that is causing excessive drooping and puffiness. Once he has removed the appropriate amount of skin, Dr. Rod will then reattach the remaining skin. Because he uses such a small, strategically placed incision, no one will be able to see a scar on your eyelid, but instead, you will look rested, refreshed, and younger. Not to mention, you’ll be able to see better!
When Dr. Rod sees Phoenix patients who are suffering from extreme under eye puffiness, dark circles, or eyelids that have pulled away from your eye, he can perform lower eyelid surgery. One of the best things about this procedure is that Dr. Rod has many options when it comes to how he performs it, which means it can be customized to meet the specific needs of each patient. For example, if you are suffering from puffiness beneath your eye, Dr. Rod can remove fat from the area. But if you have the opposite problem and you have deep under eye circles due to lost volume, Dr. Rod can inject fat into the area to restore that volume.
During a lower eyelid procedure, Dr. Rod will create a tiny incision below the lower eyelashes, along the lower crease of the eye or inside the eyelid. With this tiny incision, he will be able to work his magic – remove excess skin and fat or redistribute existing fat. A lower eyelid surgery gives his Phoenix patients a rejuvenated appearance they can be proud of.
How Long Will It Last?
Eyelid surgery is considered a long-term, if not a permanent solution for men and women in Phoenix. However, it is important to note that it will not stop the hands of time and your face will continue to age. While your eyelid surgery results should last, it is possible that you may need an eyebrow lift in the future as the muscles and skin in that area begin to weaken and lose elasticity. This could result in eyebrows that droop, which might give the appearance of drooping eyes, when in fact it is the brows that need to be addressed.
