Eyelid Surgery Philadelphia
Aging around the eyes can often be more noticeable than on other areas of your face. Typically, upper eyelid muscles lose elasticity over time and begin to droop, often resulting in a “tired” look. Additionally, fat tissues below your eyelids can also become more pronounced which may result in puffiness. Philadelphia Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bucky uses blepharoplasty to tighten the muscles around your eyelids and remove the excess fat tissue, thereby opening your eyes and creating a younger appearance that looks completely natural. Dr. Bucky provides exceptional patient recovery care.
Your Individual Goals
Your goals will be discussed realistically with Dr. Bucky. Blepharoplasty is often performed in conjunction with other facial surgeries. Together you will decide which procedures Dr. Bucky will perform in order to achieve your desired results. You will set a date for surgery and be given instructions on how to prepare.
Eyelid Lift Procedures Details
Your eyelid lift cosmetic surgery is performed under local anesthesia. For the upper eyelid, Philadelphia Board Certified surgeon Dr. Bucky makes incisions following the natural lines of your eyelids. Dr. Bucky will generally conceal the incision within the natural fold of your upper eyelid. He then removes any excess skin and fatty tissue.
For a lower eyelid cosmetic procedure, Dr. Bucky often conceals an incision below your lower lashes. Through this incision, he removes any excess skin, muscle, and fat. In some cases, Dr. Bucky may redistribute this fat to eliminate puffiness or bulges around your eyes. Dr. Bucky works with a Board Certified operating team.
Recovery from Eyelid Surgery
With Dr. Bucky’s distinctive post-surgical care and recovery program, you can likely anticipate an accelerated recovery rate after blepharoplasty. You will have access to a vitamin regimen, a personal nurse, and Dr. Bucky will check on you mornings and afternoons. Lymphatic massage is available at your request.
