Finding blepharoplasty in Charlotte NC
The first step in finding blepharoplasty in Charlotte is to know which procedure you want — an upper eyelid lift, a lower eyelid lift, both, or just a small treatment for crow’s feet. These are actually very different procedures. An upper eyelid procedure involves making an incision along the fold of the upper eyelid and removing excess skin, fat and muscle, done under general anesthetic for obvious reasons. One of the most common lower lid procedures is the SOOF lift blepharoplasty, in which the surgeon makes an incision on the inside of the lower eyelid and lifts a small deposit of fat called the suborbicularis oculi fat into place. Both of these procedures will mean a few weeks of recovery, in which there will be bruising and swelling. Crow’s feet can be treated with BOTOX or fillers, if that’s all that needs fixing, and recovery will be much faster.
The next step to finding blepharoplasty in Charlotte is finding the right facial plastic surgeon. It requires a great deal of skill to operate on the human eyelid in such a way as to make it look slightly younger without impairing its function in the slightest. You need to be able to close your eyelids completely in order to impair your eyes, which makes the decision of how much tissue to remove a judgment call requiring a lot of judgment. Someone who has made successful innovations in the field of eyelid surgery is someone you can trust to make your eyelids look younger while protecting your eyes.
