Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery) Chicago

realself-top100-doctor-2015Eyelid drooping or sagging occurs for a variety of reasons, such as naturally through aging, sun damage, smoking, stretching, or obesity. This gentle, thin tissue is easily susceptible to deterioration, leaving an older, more drained appearance.

There are many factors that cause the eyelids to sag over time as the supporting tissues deteriorate, such as sun damage, stretching, obesity, smoking and, of course, aging. In fact, the eyelid area is the first area of our skin that begins to deteriorate, since the skin of our eyelids is thinner than the skin on other parts of our bodies.

Eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty, is a surgery that improves the look of the lower and upper eyelids to give the face a younger look, improving the overall appearance of the face. Both men and women are candidates for eyelid surgery, and the procedure is done by tightening the skin and muscle while removing excess skin and fat.

Blepharoplasty is the second most popular type of facial plastic surgery, as many adults consider the eyes to be the defining feature of the face. Patients seek out eyelid surgery not only to improve their looks, but also to boost their confidence. Eyelid surgery is an extremely safe procedure that requires very little recovery time.

Eyelid surgery is generally performed under local anesthesia and takes about 45 minutes. Often, patients combine a blepharoplasty with other treatments like a facelift or BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments in order to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, dark undereye circles, or crow’s feet. The procedure is usually performed in an office with local anesthesia in as little as 45 minutes.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
