LEESBURG, VA (PRWEB) September 13, 2016
AVIE! MedSpa and Laser Center is excited to introduce eyelid lift procedures to their Leesburg area patients. Also known as a blepharoplasty, these procedures aim to improve the appearance and functionality of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.
Patients often consider an eyelid lift due to drooping or sagging eyelids that keep their eyes from fully opening or make them appear tired or older than they are. This condition is caused by the weakening of the muscles in the eyelid, a common symptom of the aging process that makes patients look tired, angry, or old, and can even impair their peripheral vision.
An eyelid lift in Leesburg repairs the eyelids and restores a smooth, youthful look to the area around the eyes. After local anesthesia is administered, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Khalique Zahir will make a small incision above the eye, removing excess skin and fat deposits. Any signs of the surgery are hidden in the natural crease of the eyelid and will not be visible.
Following the procedure, patients will immediately notice that their eyes appear more open, and their field of vision has widened. A lower eyelid lift also reduces puffiness or bags beneath the eyes and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the lower eyelid for a more youthful look.
Results from this procedure are long-lasting. However, as with all surgeries, there will be a period of downtime following the procedure as the patient’s eyelids take time to heal.
AVIE! MedSpa and Laser Center takes great pride in helping their Leesburg area patients achieve their ideal appearance and improve the quality of their lives. Besides the eyelid lift, AVIE! also offers body sculpting, injectable treatments, skin rejuvenation, and hair restoration solutions.
