Want to Undergo Eye Tuck Surgery? What You Can Expect from Your Initial Consultation

Eyelid Surgery Morristown NJWhether you have dark circles under your eyes because of age, genetics, or just the stresses of life, they can definitely damage your self-esteem. Even though fillers and Botox have been done to get rid of those dark circles, nothing is quite as effective as eye tuck or blepharoplasty. During this surgical procedure, Dr. Larry Weinstein will remove excess fat, muscle, and skin from the lower eyelids to help correct puffy bags under your eyes and make you look more youthful in the process. Much like with any surgery that Dr. Weinstein offers, before we even schedule your surgical date we will have you come into our office for a consultation.

What’s a Consultation?

A consultation appointment is designed to help Dr. Weinstein determine if a blepharoplasty is going to be a good procedure for you. Additionally, a consultation also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and have any of your concerns addressed.

What Will Happen During My Consultation?

Just like any pre-surgical consultation, your blepharoplasty consultation is very important. Not only will we look over your entire medical history but we will also look at what medications and vitamins you are taking.

After we go over your medical history and medications, Dr. Weinstein will then examine your eyelids, eyes, eye function, eyelid fat, and test your gross vision. If you wear contact lenses or glasses, make sure that you wear them.

Following your examination, Dr. Weinstein will discuss your goals and expectations, whether or not you want just the lower eyelids operated on or if you want the uppers done as well. During this time, don’t hesitate to ask any questions to Dr. Weinstein or his staff about this surgery.

If you are sick of having large bags under your eyes, then a blepharoplasty may be the right procedure for you. To learn more about blepharoplasties, schedule a consultation at our Chester office today and give us a call at 908-879-2222.

Open Up the Windows to Your Soul with Blepharoplasty

eyelid6They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, but what if those windows are closed because of your “hooded” eyes? Don’t give other people the impression that you are tired or sleepy because of your droopy eyelids. Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that will help those lids open up and make your eyes look more vibrant.

Yes, an eyelid surgery can hold promising benefits, but is it something that you should be considering? There are various reasons for you to consider this plastic surgical procedure.

  • If you appear tired or exhausted to others because of your puffy eyes, then it could be time to consider having those eyelids altered. Hooded eyes can generally make you appear tired and stressed — two of the last things you want to have as an impression from others.
  • If the drooping of your eyelids has already affected the way and quality that you see things, then an eyelid surgery might be worthy to be considered. Blepharoplasty cannot only address aesthetic concerns, but this physical problem as well.
  • If there is severe wrinkling in one’s lower eyelids, a blepharoplasty can address the situation and make those peepers appear brighter.
  • If you are already fed up with the effects of aging on your face, particularly on the areas around your eyes, then a blepharoplasty can bring you positive results. Usually, this procedure is performed on our patients in New Jersey who are already 35 years old and above.
  • If you are bothered about the noticeable bags under your eyes, or irritated by the way your hooded eyes look and obscure your vision, an eyelid surgery can be done even among our younger patients.
  • If you have good overall health and have realistic expectations about the procedure, then you can expect to see good results from a blepharoplasty.

Keep Those Peepers Beautiful

image-eyelidOur eyes might just be small facial parts, but they are the windows of our souls. They can also affect our overall appearance. Drooping eyelids do not only make you look tired, but they could also make you look several years older. Here at our New Jersey plastic surgery practice, we get a lot of patients who wish to look more alert through eyelid surgery.

An eyelid surgery, also known as an eyelid tuck or blepharoplasty, is one option to choose to help you with your peeper problems. However, it does not end the moment the procedure is done. Your recovery, as well as the outcome of the treatment, will greatly depend on how you take care of yourself after surgery.

Daily care after eyelid surgery

  1. Apply eye drops in each of your eyes as advised by your doctor.
  2. Using a Q-tip, apply an antibiotic ointment over your suture lines as advised by the plastic surgeon.
  3. Keep the eye moist at night by applying a small amount of lubricant.
  4. Showering can be resumed after two days. Make sure to use a gentle shampoo to avoid irritating your surgical wounds.
  5. Any unusual signs of bleeding, especially if it persists after 10 minutes despite applying direct pressure, must be reported immediately to your physician. Do so as well in cases of pain, infection, redness, unusual drainage, and fever.

What not to do after your eyelid surgery

  1. Avoid reading or watching TV for three days.
  2. No heavy lifting for three weeks.
  3. For two weeks, avoid tweezing or plucking your eyebrows.
  4. You may already wear your glasses after a day. In the case of contacts, you have to wait for two weeks before you can put them on again.
  5. Delay coloring your hair for four weeks after the treatment.
  6. To be safe, avoid driving for one to two weeks after your eyelid surgery.
  7. Avoid putting on eye shadow, false lashes, and makeup altogether for the next 10 days.
