Our blepharoplasty procedure in Paradise Valley is popular among patients looking to revitalize the youthfulness and vitality of their face—especially the under-eye and tear trough area. Signs of aging often appear here first. Many of our patients complain about dark under-eye circles, sunken eyes, puffiness, under-eye bags, fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles. Fortunately, facial plastic surgery solutions are available.
A blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, can help you achieve refreshed and awakened eyes. Contact our clinic today to discover how blepharoplasty in Paradise Valley can help you restore your comfort and youthful appearance.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that tightens the skin around the eyes while removing excess tissue. This treatment can address a range of aging concerns around the eyes, including:
- Fine lines
- Dark circles
- Hooded eyes
- Under-eye bags
- Sagging and drooping skin
The primary objective of blepharoplasty surgery in Paradise Valley is to accentuate and enhance the eye area. It strategically removes excess skin and fat around the eyelid. The remaining skin is then tightened, giving the entire eyelid area a lifted and firmed appearance.
You may be a candidate for an upper blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery), lower blepharoplasty (lower eyelid surgery), or both, depending on your needs. These procedures are very similar, with the exception of their target location. The upper eyelid procedure incision is along the upper eyelid crease, and the lower blepharoplasty incision is under inside the eyelid and/or below the lower eyelashes.
No matter which surgery you undergo, Dr. Stutman will take care to perform any incisions along your natural eye creases to cleverly conceal any resulting scars.
Do I Need Blepharoplasty?
While blepharoplasty is largely a cosmetic treatment, some patients need it for medical reasons, too. This procedure can help you look younger, more awake, and more refreshed. You may benefit from blepharoplasty if you experience any of the following:
- Visible signs of aging on or around the eyelids
- You desire a naturally younger looking and refreshed appearance
- Reduced confidence, self-esteem, and comfort in social or professional settings because of your appearance
When you are generally in good physical health, without any significant chronic health or ophthalmological conditions, you may be a good candidate in Paradise Valley for this blepharoplasty.
Notes About The Day of Your Eyelid Surgery
The blepharoplasty procedure is completed at an outpatient surgery center by our fellowship trained oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Ross Stutman. It may be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. During your initial consultation, we will help you design a strategy that meets your unique needs.
Blepharoplasty surgery in Paradise Valley takes a few hours, though we strongly recommend you take the entire day off for your procedure. This procedure is administered with anesthesia and eye protection. Given that this procedure is directly operating on your eye area, we also recommend you have a trusted person drive you home afterward.
Recovery From Blepharoplasty Surgery
This surgery requires at least two weeks of rest to facilitate optimal healing. Your individual healing time may vary, and will depend on several factors, including your overall health and age. In most cases, patients can resume light activities as early as two days following their treatment. For most patients undergoing blepharoplasty, they can resume all routine activities after the two-week healing period.
