What is Blepharoplasty?
Your eyes are one of the most defining features of your look, but sometimes excess skin above or under them can create an aged look, hiding their beauty. Plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan performs eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) to remove excess skin and lift the upper or lower eyelid, creating an awakened appearance. Countless men and women undergo eyelid surgery at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics to reduce puffy bulges, leading to improved function and appearance. Eyelid surgery creates a softer, younger appearance and can produce subtle yet noticeable improvements. If you're interested in refreshing your eyes with eyelid lift surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Sawan in Oklahoma City, OK today.
"Dr. Sawan is a miracle worker. Had eye surgery, upper and lower kids, and now look much better, and healthier. Not surgeries that look obvious that you had eye lift surgery. I asked him for a natural and healthy look. I’m “very” pleased, and his staff is wonderful. Highly recommend you see him before choosing anyone else."- J.T. / Office Visit / Sep 25, 2020
Can I Get a Blepharoplasty?
If you have excess, sagging skin on your upper eyelid, have puffy skin below your bottom eyelid, or have functional and/or vision difficulties because of excess skin on your upper or lower eyelid, you may be a candidate for a blepharoplasty. During the initial consult, plastic surgeon Dr. Sawan will discuss different treatment alternatives with you based on your needs and goals. For a more awake appearance, eyelid surgery may be the appropriate treatment for you. If you have loose skin that droops on the upper eyelid, or bulging bags under the eyes, blepharoplasty can correct this to give you a more youthful appearance. Call our Edmond, OK office for more information or to schedule a consultation.
How Does Blepharoplasty Work?
Before your blepharoplasty, you will likely receive some form of anesthesia, depending on the type and complexity of the eyelid surgery you will be receiving. Your treatment may be done on the top eyelid by itself, under or on the bottom eyelid, or a combination of both eyelids. Plastic surgeon Dr. Sawan will discuss your goals with you beforehand to help decide what treatment is needed to reach that desired outcome.
Upper eyelid surgery helps diminish the skin that droops over the eye, which creates a more awakened and appealing look. An incision is usually made along the lid crease to trim away skin and tissue.
Lower blepharoplasty is performed to reduce puffy skin beneath the lower lid. In most cases, the incision is made just under the lash line to surgically remove fatty tissue, and the skin is delicately lifted to produce a softer, flatter look.
What Should I Expect After My Blepharoplasty?
Your eyelid surgery may last up to two hours, depending on whether one or both eyes are treated. After your procedure, you will need a few days to rest and avoid strenuous activities. A cold compress can assist in reducing discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Your results may last years, but even though they are long-lasting, aging does not stop. To continue to enhance your appearance, facial rejuvenation treatments at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics, such as fillers and lasers, can be paired to create a glowing, youthful appearance.
