Rejuvenate Your Beautiful Eyes With Eyelid Surgery In Kogarah
Your youth centers around the appearance of your eyes and lids. Young beautiful eyes are seamless without wrinkles or bags that may appear as you age. These unsightly wrinkles and bags can detract from your self-image and confidence. Fortunately, Dr. Darrell Perkins provides restorative eyelid surgery for residents in Kogarah.
What causes my eyelid sag?
Eyelids are delicate tissues that can begin to sag or seem “heavy” as you age. Extra fat deposits under the skin can create a puffy swollen look that makes you appear tired. In addition, extra fat or sagging can impair the vision as the eyelids push down on your eyelashes and block your sight. The extra weight might make your eyes feel tired or heavy at the end of the day. In order to treat these symptoms, Dr. Perkins can perform a minor procedure called blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery.
What happens during the procedure?
Before the procedure
Dr. Perkins provides consultations before the procedure so that he can examine your eyes and eyelids. He might take measurements and pictures so that he can individualize your treatment plan. Dr. Perkins can determine the amount of sag with his thorough screenings and assess the amount of fat that he needs to remove. Together you will discuss treatment options and different results. He will provide a comprehensive list of your options and which ones he considers the most effective. With his careful examination and expertise, he strives to reshape your eyelids in your perfect image.
The day of the procedure
On the day of your surgery, general or twilight anesthesia will be provided depending on your choice. Dr. Perkins recommends general anesthesia if he is performing on both eye lids to maximize your comfort. While you sleep, he will alter the lids by creating a small incision and removing the desired fat tissue. Afterwards, he will close the lid with micro incisions. With his cutting edge technology and surgical skill, you can expect virtually invisible scarring.
The day after
The procedure takes place on an outpatient basis to reduce office time and cost. Dr. Perkins will send you home to recovery. He can provide lubricating ointment and cold compresses to alleviate any minor discomforts or swelling. He will schedule a checkup appointment in which he examines your new look and ensures recovery progresses well. You can also request medications if you suffer from any discomfort. Dr. Perkins strongly recommends that you wear sun protection to quicken the recovery and protect your new lids. With his careful technique, your new results will last many years.
If you wish for a young face and eyes, eyelid surgery is an excellent option. All it takes is a simple day procedure to reshape your lids and confidence.
