Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Helping You See and Look Better in Milwaukee
Our eyes are the most prominent feature of our face. Eyes are said to be the window to our soul, and tired or sad appearing eyes can change the way that we view ourselves and the way that others perceive us. Sagging or heavy eyelids can also obstruct our vision, making it difficult to see. Both the upper and lower eyelids can be addressed by Dr. Bosbous to give the eyes a more youthful, rejuvenated look. While some choose to have blepharoplasty (eye rejuvenation surgery) on its own, many patients in the Milwaukee area like to combine it with other facial procedures (like a rhinoplasty, or face/neck lift) to give their appearance an overall refreshed look.
Dr. Bosbous takes an individualized approach to every procedure he performs. His attention to detail and care for his patients in the Milwaukee area is what sets him apart. By addressing your concerns and expectations during your blepharoplasty consultation, Dr. Bosbous will help to create a personalized surgical plan based on your needs and desires.
Benefits of Eyelid Lift/Blepharoplasty
There are many benefits to eyelid surgery. Dr. Bosbous and his eyelid procedure will help to address some of the following eye issues you may have. Blepharoplasty has the ability to:
- Help to correct blocked vision due to sagging eyelids
- Tighten the skin around the eyes to create a more youthful look
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the eye
- Refresh the appearance of the eye
- Eliminate extra fat deposits under the eye
Because the actual signs of aging affect us all differently, Dr. Bosbous will evaluate your individual concerns in planning your eye lid surgery. Meeting your personal expectations is always an important factor in any procedure. When combining this procedure with other facial rejuvenation techniques, Dr. Bosbous will work closely with you to educate you on all of the steps of the procedures he will be doing before your actual surgery. It is extremely important that you feel comfortable with the surgical plan and have been informed about the risks, benefits and possible complications prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure.
Your Eyelid/Blepharoplasty Procedure
Surgery differs from patient to patient because of individual need. Your eyelift surgery may involve work on both the upper and the lower eyelid, or simply one or the other. Upper eyelid surgery involves making an incision along the natural creases of the upper eyelid allowing access to underlying fat and muscle. Lower eyelid surgery involves an incision on the inner eyelid or right underneath the lash line. In all cases of blepharoplasty, Dr. Bosbous takes scarring into consideration and does his best to make sure your incisions are easily concealed.
Your eyelid surgery will be performed at an accredited hospital or surgical center, typically as an outpatient procedure. Done commonly under general anesthesia, in some cases your surgery may only require a localized anesthesia. These are all things Dr. Bosbous will discuss with you before your procedure.
Results and Recovery
A typical blepharoplasty procedure lasts about 1.5-3 hours and recovery time typically is also minimal–that’s certainly true for most of our Milwaukee blepharoplasty patients. Swelling and bruising may occur for 10-14 days, but can be concealed with makeup after the first week. Normal activity can be performed generally after a week as well, with more vigorous exercise and activity resumed within 2-3 weeks.
Dr. Bosbous will make every effort to minimize your chances for complications after surgery. His caring approach will help to put you at ease and make your healing process as smooth as possible. Patients in the Milwaukee area can always expect to be in good hands when visiting Dr. Bosbous.
