Eyelid Lift Plastic Surgery in Greensboro
By the time you reach your mid-to-late thirties, your eyes begin to show signs of aging. The upper eyelids droop a bit, hindering your vision, and there is a tired-looking puffiness under your eyes that no cucumber slice can reduce.
If you are bothered by this inescapable sign of aging, consider turning to our board certified Piedmont Triad female plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis for an eyelid lift. Blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery in Greensboro tightens the skin around your eyelids and removes the excess fat tissue. The appearance of your eyes will be opened, making you look more alert, youthful, and rejuvenated.
Your Individual Goals
During your private consultation, your goals will be discussed realistically with Greensboro eyelid lift plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis. Blepharoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries. Together, you will decide which procedures she will perform in order to achieve your desired results.
About Eyelid Lift Cosmetic Surgery in the Piedmont Triad
For your comfort and safety, your eyelid lift cosmetic surgery will be performed while you’re under anesthesia at our Piedmont Triad AAAHC accredited outpatient surgical center (the Renaissance Center for Plastic Surgery & Wellness) in Greensboro. For the upper eyelid, board certified blepharoplasty plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis makes incisions following the natural lines of your eyelids. She generally conceals the incision within the natural fold of your upper eyelid before removing any excess skin and fatty tissue.
For the lower eyelid, our Triad eyelid lift plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis often conceals an incision below your lower lashes or along the internal aspect of your eyelids. Through this incision, she removes any excess skin, muscle, and fat. In some cases, she may redistribute this fat to eliminate puffiness or bulges around your eyes.
Greensboro, NC Eyelid Lift Recovery
Your stitches will be removed in 7 to 10 days after your blepharoplasty procedure at our accredited plastic surgery center in Greensboro. You should recover fully in just a few weeks. Immediately following surgery, Piedmont Triad eyelid lift plastic surgeon Dr. Contogiannis will apply ointment and bandages to your eye area. Pain from surgery can be minimized with medication and cool compresses. Following surgery, you must keep your head elevated for several days. Usually people feel comfortable in public after a week and a half. Activities such as reading and watching television can be done after just two or three days. There is little pain associated with this procedure. Your eyes just need time to heal in order to look refreshed.
Greensboro Blepharoplasty Results
Dr. Contogiannis may be a board certified Piedmont Triad plastic surgeon, but she is also a woman. She knows the importance of feeling confident in your appearance. Crows feet, wrinkles, or sagging skin around your eyes will no longer give your age away. After your eyes have been rejuvenated, you can feel and look youthful again. You won’t have to worry about trying to conceal wrinkles or other imperfections with heavy make-up and facial products. You won’t have to worry about drooping skin impairing your vision or how a smile makes you look older than you feel. Over time, the results of your eyelid lift will keep you looking younger than if you’d never undergone the surgery, and those results may even be permanent. Now you can let your inner youth and beauty shine through your eyes and your confident smile.
