What does the procedure entail?
In the operating room, the eyes are protected. Incisions are carefully hidden in the upper lid crease or within the lower eyelid.
Are there any alternatives?
Lasers or chemical peels may help with some fine wrinkling around the eyes.
What can I expect?
It may take 1-2 weeks for bruising and swelling to completely resolve. Most patients are comfortable going back to work at that time.
Who is a good candidate?
You may be a candidate for this procedure if:
You have excess skin, wrinkling, or puffiness around the eye; you find that makeup around the eyes is difficult to put on or does not last long, or your eyes make you look tired or unrested, even when you've had plenty of sleep.
Real Artistic Outcomes
Our eyes showcase our personality. Dr. Gurley works with you to restore the appearance of your eyes. The goal of an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) is not to distort your natural eye shape but, rather, to reveal your natural eye shape. Incisions are carefully placed and often difficult to see. Call to schedule a consultation and come see for yourself.
