Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
Eyelid lift, otherwise known as Blepharoplasty, is a procedure that smoothes the fat bags and skin folds around a person’s eyes.
These issues are commonly caused by aging, but may be genetic, affecting people in different ways. Some ethnic groups are more susceptible to developing these skin folds. Eyelid surgery in Philadelphia is a common procedure that is done by plastic surgeon Dr. Genter, correcting people’s issues with their facial appearance.
Those who experience the following conditions can benefit greatly from eyelid surgery in Philadelphia:
Bags or bulges below the eyes
Skin folds above the eye around the orbital bone
Dark circles around the eye
Hindered eyesight due to excess tissue
Due to the fact that the skin is extremely thin and sensitive around the eyelids, these conditions are a common occurrence.
Techniques and Procedures for Eyelid Surgery in Philadelphia
Eyelid surgery can take anywhere from 1-3 hours with the option of a general or local anesthesia with sedation to provide the most optimal level of comfort the patient. For eyelid surgery the incisions are delicate and hidden in the natural eyelid folds. Dr. Genter begins surgery by making the incisions and then removes any excess fat pads and skin from around the eyes. The youthful tone of the lower eyelids, which often loosens with time, is restored. When the proper amount of tissue is then removed to achieve a smoother, younger look, Dr. Genter closes the incisions with fine sutures.
Recovery and Results
Post eyelid surgery, some patients report feeling very swollen around the eyes and a few note blurry visions. In most cases recovery time lasts anywhere from 7 to 10 days, and during this period of time most patients apply ice compresses. Dr. Genter advises visiting his office for check-up appointments post surgery to keep track of the healing process.
Once healed, you will be able to experience the benefits from eyelid surgery from Dr. Genter. This procedure will not only make you appear younger but can also eliminate excess skin over the upper eyelids to improve the visual fields.
