Puffy, baggy, or sagging eyelids are the most common cause of people looking older or more tired than they feel. At his plastic surgery center in Littleton, Colorado, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Zwiebel has found that dramatic improvements can be made with (also known as eyelid lift plastic surgery, cosmetic eyelid surgery or eyelid tuck).
Blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid procedure that eliminates excess skin and the excess fatty deposits that collect around the eyelids, creating puffiness. With an eyelid surgery, Denver plastic surgeon Dr. Zwiebel can provide results which give the patient a refreshed, brighter, younger, well-rested and healthier appearance. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids or on the lower eyelids, or both. The exact procedure is suited to the needs of the individual patient, adjusting the amount of fat and skin to produce the most pleasing and natural appearing results.
Based on a careful pre-operative assessment, Dr. Zwiebel strategically places incisions inside or on the eyelid to ensure the most natural looking result, with the most minimal scar possible. The matured scars are usually very hard to see, except with closest scrutiny.
In Littleton at his plastic surgery center, Dr. Zwiebel performs eyelid lift plastic surgery (blepharoplasty) as an outpatient procedure in his accredited operating room. During eyelid surgery, Denver based Dr. Zwiebel uses anesthetist-monitored sedation for your maximal safety and comfort.
Following eyelid surgery, side effects such as dry eyes, swelling, bruising, and sensitivity to light may occur, but will fade within ten days. Dr. Zwiebel finds that most patients return to work in five to ten days. Like all surgical procedures, blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery entails some risk. Being board certified to perform eyelid surgery, Denver cosmetic surgeon Dr. Zwiebel encourages his patients to learn as much as possible about eyelid lift and recovery before undergoing the procedure. Common procedures performed by Dr. Zwiebel with eyelid lift procedures include: Brow lift, fat transfers and cheek augmentation.
