All eye surgeries are performed by Dr. Depenbusch, our Spa Medical Director and board-certified Ophthalmologist.
Blepharoplasty is also known as an eyelid tuck. This procedure repairs droopy or sagging eyelids by removing the extra skin on the upper and/or lower lid, leaving you with a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
Excessive skin on the upper eyelid caused by genetics or by the aging process can fold and droop heavily over the lashes causing a tired-looking appearance. Excessive skin below the lower eyelid creates heavy sagging folds and wrinkles beneath the eyes and weighs down the lower lid causing it to lose shape. Blepharoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure that provides a more youthful, alert appearance by surgically removing folds and excess skin on the upper and lower lids. The results are instant and long-lasting and the recovery period is generally no more than a week or two.
The surgery normally takes less than an hour to perform (about 30 minutes per eyelid) and pain from the procedure is usually minimal. The incisions are precise and well-hidden, leading to nearly invisible post-operative scarring. Dr. Depenbusch will perform a comprehensive medical evaluation prior to surgery in order to address any eye conditions or other medical problems that could result in any possible post-operative complications. Post-surgical bruising and swelling after the procedure should be expected, but usually resolves within a week or two. Afterwards, you’ll be left with a more alert, rejuvenated appearance. Results are long-lasting, often permanent.
