Eyelid Surgery Oklahoma City
If you feel as though droopy eyelids or bags under your eyes make you seem older or more tired than you really are, then eyelid surgery may be an ideal solution to restore a more youthful and alert appearance. Contact Dr. Silverstein to learn how you can benefit from eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), offered at our Oklahoma City practice, serving Tulsa, Norman, and other communities throughout Oklahoma.
Candidates for Blepharoplasty
Treatment is most often performed for healthy men and women over the age of 35 who wish to turn back the clock and look more vibrant and refreshed. During a personal eyelid surgery consultation at our Oklahoma City practice, Dr. Paul Silverstein will listen to your goals and will plan an appropriate course of treatment.
Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty
Dr. Silverstein performs upper and/or lower eyelid surgery, depending upon the patient's needs. His skill and experience as a plastic surgeon enable him to hide incisions in the creases of the upper eyelids and beneath the lashes of the lower eyelids. After incisions have been made in the targeted locations, Dr. Silverstein will remove the excess skin that is causing the eyelids to droop and sag. Next, excess fat is removed in order to reduce puffiness and smooth the skin even further. Dr. Silverstein will then reposition the underlying muscles if the patient can benefit from this step of the procedure. Sometimes, eyelid surgery is performed with procedures such as facelift, brow lift, or neck lift in order to achieve complete facial rejuvenation.
For younger patients who have developed puffy bags under the eyes but do not require the removal of excess skin, an abridged procedure called transconjunctival blepharoplasty may be performed. This procedure offers effective treatment without any visible scarring for patients who need only mild correction.
After Eyelid Surgery
Recovery from eyelid surgery is generally smooth, and most patients are able to return to work within seven to ten days of their procedure. Dr. Silverstein will give you detailed instructions to follow and will monitor your recovery very closely.
