Plastic Surgery - Eyelids
Often, the first facial feature to show signs of aging is the eyes. Wrinkles and sagging skin in the eye area can make a person look tired and older, and can even interfere with vision. However, it is possible to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance with eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty. At Dr. Fathy Clinic, blepharoplasty can reduce the size of puffy bags below your eyes and correct droopy skin around the upper eyelids by removing excess fat, skin, and sometimes muscle. Typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia, blepharoplasty at Dr. Fathy Clinic is an excellent option for individuals who wish to improve the appearance of their eye area. Temporary side effects may include swelling, bruising, blurred vision, dry eye sensation, tearing, and sensitivity to light. Most patients can return to work and non-strenuous activities in one week.
