They say that the eyes are the gateway to the soul and your window to the world. They also play a significant role in the way your face appears to the world. The facial plastic surgeons Dr. Jordan Wallin and Dr. Brian Downs at Wake Forest Baptist Health Facial Plastic Surgery in Winston-Salem, NC offer a procedure called blepharoplasty, which improves the way your eyes look. Find out more about blepharoplasty and how it can help restore youth and vitality to your facial features.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is better known as eyelid surgery or an eyelift. It fixes eyelids that droop or sag at the edges, puffy eyelids, and problems with excess skin around the eyes. It is a surgery that can usually be done under local anesthesia in your facial plastic surgeon's office—your surgeon will make just a few incisions to remove excess fat or skin, and add a few stitches to begin the healing process. This procedure can also be performed along with other facial surgeries, like a face or brow lift.
Benefits of Blepharoplasty
Sometimes sagging skin, lines, or wrinkles around the eyes could be the cause of what is making your face look older. Blepharoplasty is a relatively simple procedure that can make significant changes in the way you look. The procedure is minimally invasive and probably won't require you to take too much time off from work. The healing process is relatively quick and the results are long-lasting.
What to Expect at Your Consultation
Your Winson-Salem, NC facial plastic surgeon will need to do a full review of your medical history before performing any plastic surgery. You’ll talk about your goals, and decide whether you want to just do blepharoplasty or if you would like to include other facial procedures.
