The natural aging process generally results in sagging or loose skin that can, unfortunately, affect even your eyelids. If you feel you have a constantly “tired” look due to drooping eyelids or bags under your eyes, you’ll benefit from blepharoplasty in Gahanna or Upper Arlington, OH. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can eliminate this tired eye look and give you a more youthful and alert appearance. We complete this “eyelid lift” surgery in one of our own fully equipped surgical facilities, where you’ll have access to many comforting amenities and the full range of anesthesia options. Our board-certified oral and facial surgeon, Dr. Erik Evans, will complete your surgery. With years of specialized dental and surgical training, he’s an expert in treatments involving the functional and cosmetic aspects of the face. And with a focus on cosmetic surgery, he has the experience and skill to revive your tired eyes and enhance your facial appearance with a personalized blepharoplasty.
Blepharoplasty in Columbus, OH is one of the least invasive cosmetic surgeries we offer and generally only requires localized numbing agents for patients to feel comfortable. Rest assured, you can choose to undergo surgery with anesthesia, which will be administered and monitored by our anesthesiologist. Your procedure will consist of Dr. Evans gently removing a portion of skin from your upper and/or lower eyelids. He may also reposition or remove fat deposits and tighten or reshape the skin to redefine the eyes. Any incisions made will generally follow the natural contours of your eyes so there won’t be any noticeable scarring after surgery. In most cases, your surgery can be completed in less than a few hours, and you’ll be able to return home the same day. Your recovery may take a few weeks, during which time you’ll apply ointments and cold compresses to your eyes to reduce bruising, swelling, and dry eyes. However, once your eyes are fully healed, you won’t have to worry about looking tired again—your results are long-lasting and noticeable!
