Am I a Candidate?
Everyone goes through the natural process of aging, and this includes skin aging as well. Skin aging is almost always accompanied by a loss of elasticity. Further, for many people, constant gravitational pull leads to the excessive collection of skin on the lower and upper eyelids. The result is the appearance of unsightly bulges and wrinkles. An extra skin fold hanging on your upper lids could end up interfering with your vision as well.
All these problems can be resolved by an eyelid surgery. In order to be a suitable candidate for a blepharoplasty procedure, you must be in good health condition and have realistic goals and expectations with regards to the surgery. Majority of the candidates for an eyelid surgery are over the age of 35 years. However, if you are genetically disposed to have droopy or baggy eyelids, then you could also decide to undergo the surgery sooner.
The blepharoplasty procedure usually begins with the administration of either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation. This helps prevent any discomfort that you may otherwise experience during the surgery. Dr Kwak will suggest the most suitable option of sedation in your particular case during the initial consultation. The next step is the incision. In an eyelid surgery, incisions are made in a way that the resulting scars get hidden inside the natural creases of your eyelids.
Once the procedure is completed, Dr Kwak will close the lid incisions with either skin glue or sutures. Sutures are typically removed within a time frame of one week.
An eyelid surgery could last for anywhere between 1 to 3 hours, depending on factors such as the amount of repair that needs to be done and the specific technique used.
The incisions made during an eyelid surgery end up fading over a period of time and get blended into the natural eyelid creases. Hence, the procedure entails minimal or no scarring.
Some of the key benefits of our New York Asian eyelid surgery include the following:
Majority of the patients notice a dramatic improvement in early aging signs such as fine lines. The lifting of the lower and upper lid could help minimize the lines around the corners as well as in the lower eyelid.
The lower eyelid surgery is effective in removing the baggy areas under your eye. This is possible due to the elimination of excess tissue and skin underneath the eye.
The blepharoplasty procedure can significantly improve the overall shape and look of the eyes. This refreshed, youthful appearance noticed after the procedure will help boost your self-esteem and self-confidence.
