Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift Surgery)
Are you longing for refreshed, youthful-looking eyes? Dr. Joseph performs Blepharoplasty to remove unwanted, excess skin and bulging fat pads from the eyelids. Blepharoplasty surgery may restore a youthful eyelid appearance with minimal inconvenience or downtime. Well-placed incisions heal inconspicuously within 3-5 days, and you may resume social activities within one week. If lower eyelid bags are removed, your incisions will be invisible since they are placed on the inside of your lower eyelids. We provide an organic makeup kit in your skin tone to conceal bruising. Blepharoplasty is performed in about an hour with local anesthetic or with intravenous sedation, depending on your preference and your condition.
For many patients with bothersome lower eyelid "bags", eyelid surgery-Blepharoplasty may not be necessary. Dr. Joseph is a pioneer in the use of Injectable Fillers to camouflage the appearance of under eye bags in those who have under eye hallowing or deep eyelid grooves. Many patients benefit from non-surgical lower eye lid rejuvenation, which may be performed with topical anesthetic and typically, no downtime.
