At Weiss Cosmetic ,Dr. Weiss can address this problem with eyelid or eye bag correction, commonly known as ‘Blepharoplasty‘ which is the removal of excess tissue from either the upper or lower eyelids or both if required, giving a fresher more youthful appearance. This is one of the safest and most commonly performed cosmetic treatments and is usually performed as a day case. It can also be combined with other surgical procedures such as a face or brow lift or non-surgical treatments such as laser skin resurfacing. During your consultation with Dr. Weiss these options can be discussed.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will the wrinkles return?
Unfortunately, yes. During your medical consultation your surgeon will point out that the skin will continue to age. Dr. Weiss believes that it is important you understand that the ageing process will not stop after surgery although care of the eye area will help to maintain a youthful look.
Will I need to take time off work?
Yes, normally 5-7 days is required off work. Surgery can be performed under local or general anesthesia and usually takes approximately 2 hours. It is generally performed as a day case surgery.
Will I feel pain afterwards?
Patients will generally have minimal discomfort but the eyes may feel tight. Pain killers can be prescribed which will help to ease any discomfort.
Will there be scarring after eye lid correction?
In the case of upper eye rejuvenation an incision is made close to the natural crease of the eyelid or with lower the incision may be made underneath the lash line inside the lower lid. With both procedures post-operative scarring will fade over time and become virtually undetectable especially with the assistance of make-up.
