Dr. Romy offers eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, to enhance the appearance of aged and tired-looking eyes.

Blepharoplasty Goals

Patients choose to have a blepharoplasty to address issues including wrinkling under the eyes, puffy under eye bags, sunken eyes and excess skin on the upper eyelids. Some patients are more concerned with hollowing beneath the eyes, whereas others can be concerned with bags. All patients are seeking a refreshed, energized, open-eyed and healthy appearance.

Blepharoplasty Procedure

There are different, customizable ways to perform eyelid surgery, and you will work with Dr. Romy to choose the one that is best for you. Typically, small incisions just inside the lower eyelid can remove excess pockets of fat without leaving any external scarring. This type of lower eyelid blepharoplasty can achieve remarkable changes for a person's appearance without leaving visible scarring or obvious signs of surgery. If significant lower eyelid skin is to be removed as well, Dr. Romy creates a small incision on the lower eyelid skin directly underneath the eyelashes to remove the troublesome fat pads and excess skin that are contributing to baggy, tired eyes. The amount of fat and skin that are removed from the lower eyelids are carefully planned to avoid overcorrection. The incision eventually blends with the lash line to be indistinguishable. Upper eyelids will allow for a small ellipse of skin to be removed in the crease of the eyelid, tightening it, and the incision will naturally hide in that crease.

Blepharoplasty Recovery

The recovery period typically lasts 7-10 days, but we recommend that patients have 2 weeks set aside from regular work and activities so they can relax and recover in comfort at home. You'll see Dr. Romy again within the first week of your recovery for follow up assessment.
