Fatigue or a tired look on the face can be immediately noticed with droopy eyes or eyes that have prominent wrinkles, puffiness around them. At times, it may make you look older than your actual age. But modern plastic surgery procedures have made it possible for millions of men and women to get the look that they actually desire. If you too want to change the appearance of your eyes for a cosmetically superior look, consult a board certified surgeon for the right plastic surgery procedure.
Dr. George Pope, MD, FACS is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is one of the most respected surgeons of Central Florida. With the life changing experiences he has given to his patients, Dr. Pope was voted the best plastic surgeon in Florida for 2 consecutive years by the readers of Orlando Magazine.
Blepharoplasty is the plastic surgery procedure that Dr. George Pope uses to treat droopy and wrinkled eyelids. During your pre surgery consultation in the relaxing environment of Orlando Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Pope examines your eyes and determines whether the surgery would involve upper eyelid, lower eye lid or both. To ensure the best results from surgery, you must candidly discuss your current health status, present and past illnesses and medication regimen with him. Your picture will also be taken to show you the difference before and after the eye lid surgery.
Eye lid surgery or blepharoplasty is performed under local or general anesthesia as per the severity of problem in the eyelids. Your blood pressure, breathing pattern, blood oxygen levels and other vital signs are carefully monitored throughout the surgery. The incisions are made within the natural folds of the eye though if your skin has a lot of elasticity, a trans-conjunctival incision may also be made. The skin is then separated from underlying tissue and muscle and excess fat is removed if required. Excess sagging skin is also trimmed and incisions are closed with very fine surgical sutures.
You are moved to the recovery room after the surgery and Dr. Pope prescribes safe pain killers to subside the discomfort that results from bruising and swelling. You can go home the same day but just need to take care and follow the instructions given by the doctor for a few days. Within 15 to 20 days of the surgery, your eye lids will begin to get the look that you desired and add more to the cosmetic beauty of your face.
