Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lifts)
f you have excessive sagging or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin, consider a minimally-invasive eyelid lift from Dr. Zienowicz! Our practice works with various types of patients to correct both cosmetic issues and physical impediments through eyelid lift corrections.
If you have excess upper eyelid skin that interferes with vision, if you have lost your natural upper eyelid crease, or if you have puffy pouches of fat in your upper or lower lids that create a tired or aged appearance, our advanced blepharoplasty techniques are designed specifically for you. They not only smooth and lift the skin around the eyes, but also prevent future lines from forming! Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lifts, are almost guaranteed to give your eyes a more youthful and rested appearance.
From the onset of your treatment, our staff will provide you with a personalized surgical assessment where you will discuss your unique vision for your skin, and receive insights and helpful information on all your surgical and non-surgical choices. Once you’ve agreed, Dr. Zienowicz will use the most-advanced eyelid lift and Botox-based methods to correct any asymmetry in your face and give you as balanced and beautiful looks as possible. For those who are good candidates, upper or lower eyelid lift can be performed comfortably in the office as an awake procedure, with less downtime and no general anesthetic needed.
This procedure can also widen your visual fields if excessive upper-lid skin has partially-blocked your vision. Blepharoplasty gives the eyes a more youthful, rejuvenated, smoother appearance.
The recovery times for upper eyelid procedures are relatively short. The sutures heal quickly, and you should be ready to return to normal life in about seven days. Surgeries for the lower eyelids are more involved and so take longer to recover from. These types of procedures demand an approximate downtime of 14 days, or 2 weeks.
