Do you always look tired?

Do you feel like each morning when you wake up, even if you have had a great night sleep that you still look like your tired/ Do your eyes look heavy and droopy all the time? If you are answering yes to these questions then it might be time for you to get more information on blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure performed to remove excess skin found on the upper or lower lids. For most people this excess skin causes an aged or tired look to the eyes. In some people the eyelid sagging or drooping is so significant it interferes with their vision.

The actual procedure is performed in an outpatient setting, and is performed with local anesthesia, which means you will not be put to sleep. You will be given some medications that will help you relax and then the area to be worked on is injected with local anesthetic. If the upper lids are the area of concern then a small incision is placed in the crease of the upper lid, then the excess skin is removed and the incision is closed with a very fine suture. In lower lid surgery the “fatty” desposits  that cause laxity of the lower lids is removed with the same technique as used above. The procedure usually lasts one to two hours, and you will leave with absorbable sutures in that will dissolve on their own in one to two weeks.

What can I expect after surgery?

After surgery the area around the eyes will be swollen and bruised for about five to seven days. It is best if you can keep your head up and keep cold compresses on the affected area. Antibiotic ointment is applied over the suture site. Patients who wear contact lenses will need to wear their glasses for the first two weeks until the eyelids have time to heal. Female patients can wear makeup after around ten days.

If you feel like you are looking tired on a regular basis it might be time to think about eyelid rejuvenation. Dr. John Kayal performs eyelid rejuvenation in his office and would be happy to discuss all treatment options for you, call for a free cosmetic consultation today. 770-426-7177

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.
