Eyelid Surgery vs. Blepharoplasty | Safety, Pain, Recovery, Longevity & Costs | Surgeon Explains

When the eyelid skin begins to sag and tissue droops around the eyes, you may see more wrinkles and hollow areas that only become more prominent over time. Loss of elasticity in the upper eyelid can even cause loss of vision. If you have any of these issues, Dr. Chip Cole may recommend blepharoplasty, more commonly known as an eyelid lift. An eyelid lift removes excess skin above and below the eyes so you can appear more refreshed. The professionals at OCULUS Plastic Surgery are proud to have performed countless successful procedures so patients can look younger and see better. Call our Atlanta, GA, office to schedule an eyelid lift consultation and see how you can benefit from treatment. WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY? Blepharoplasty can be performed on healthy patients with excess skin folds around the upper or lower eyelids. This excess or loose skin causes cosmetic problems and may even obstruct your field of vision. Our procedure at OCULUS Plastic Surgery can also address under-eye bags and puffiness that prevent men and women from feeling confident and enjoying life to the fullest. To find out if you are indeed an ideal candidate for eyelid surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Cole or a member of our team. WHAT TO EXPECT DURING BLEPHAROPLASTY During an upper eyelid lift, Dr. Cole makes a hidden incision in the natural crease of the eyelid. Once the tissue is removed, we also address any excess fat at the same time. Sutures are used to gently close the incision. A lower eyelid lift requires an internal incision in the lower eyelid to remove or reposition the tissue. This is also known as transconjunctival blepharoplasty. If, however, there is significant excess skin in addition to puffiness on the lower eyelid, a traditional incision just below the eyelashes (external blepharoplasty) can allow for the removal of excess skin. Our clinic in Atlanta works hard to make sure patients feel comfortable during the process and experience as little scarring as possible. HOW LONG IS RECOVERY AFTER BLEPHAROPLASTY? Most patients are back to their normal routines after blepharoplasty within a few days, although complete recovery may take as long as 2 to 3 weeks. While swelling, bruising, and some discomfort are all part of the recovery process, these side effects are temporary and can be alleviated with cold compresses and a mild pain reliever. OCULUS Plastic Surgery can provide further guidance and recovery instructions so you can feel more comfortable. WILL I HAVE SCARS FROM AN EYELID LIFT? Eyelid surgery generally does not cause visible scarring. Dr. Cole takes great care to ensure that incisions are made in the natural folds of the face. Our clinic also provides detailed guidelines and recommendations so patients can minimize scarring during recovery. SHOULD I EXPECT POST-SURGERY COMPLICATIONS? Complications after upper or lower eyelid surgery are rare. However, it's important to follow the recovery instructions provided by OCULUS Plastic Surgery to prevent complications such as infection. These include avoiding activities that may cause injury to the eyes, such as rubbing or applying pressure to the area. Contact our office if you have any issues. HOW WILL MY EYESIGHT IMPROVE? Blepharoplasty is not only performed for cosmetic reasons. If you suffer from drooping eyelids or other conditions that obstruct your vision, this surgery in Atlanta, GA, can remove the excess skin and improve your eyesight. Our patients report that they are able to read better and see more easily after their procedure.

Thyroid Eye Disease | What if it goes untreated? | Eye Surgeon Answers

Thyroid Eye Disease (or Graves' disease) is a condition where the person's own immune system over-reacts to the thyroid hormone. This disease is defined by swelling that occurs behind the eyes, which causes a buildup of tissue and retraction of the eyelids. In the most severe cases, pressure from the tissue compresses the optic nerve and threatens a person’s vision. That’s when a surgical procedure will become necessary. Eyelid Retraction Procedure: During surgery, the upper retractor muscles are loosened, which releases the scar tissue and allows the upper eyelids to be moved downward into a more natural position. The exact same technique is carried out on the lower eyelids. In some instances, internal tissue spacer grafts may be used to raise the vertical position of the lower eyelid closer to the level of the iris. The incisions are then closed with absorbable sutures. Orbital Decompression Procedure: In cases of Thyroid Eye Disease where the eyes begin to painfully bulge forward, orbital decompression is performed. With this technique, bone windows are created in the orbital area to allow the eyes to move back to a more normal position that is more comfortable for the patient, and healthier for the ocular tissues. RECOVERY: During recovery, most patients experience swelling that will steadily subside over 2 to 4 weeks. Although minimal discomfort is expected during the first few days, it can be alleviated by prescribed medication. Individuals can usually return to work about 1 week after the sutures are removed.

Eyelid Lift Insurance | Ptosis Repair vs. Blepharoplasty | Surgeon Explains

Because the main reason for having corrective surgery is to improve your field of vision, this procedure is usually covered by insurance to improve functionality while having a beneficial cosmetic result. Congenital or Acquired Ptosis (droopy upper eyelids), which can occur at birth or later in life, is generally due to hereditary tendencies, aging changes, or trauma. Corrective surgery is also necessary in children who have ptosis in both eyes for proper visual development. Surgery is done in adults to improve the visual field. Ptosis is a frequent cause of “fender benders” in the elderly because of a decreased amount of reaction time when their side vision is reduced. There are two basic surgical procedures to correct ptosis. The strength of the levator muscle in the eyelid determines which operation is performed. TIGHTENING / RESECTION If the opening muscle has some strength and can elevate the eyelid, then the levator muscle can be tightened or resected. This elevates the lid to the desired level. FRONTALIS SUSPENSION If a patient has poor strength of the eyelid muscle, tightening the muscle does not work well. This procedure uses the strength of the eyebrow muscle (frontalis muscle) to correct the droopy eyelid. A tiny silicone rod/band is passed inside the eyelid up into the eyebrow muscle where it is secured. This elevates the lid and allows the patient to use their eyebrow muscle to control the lid height. This is analogous to suspenders holding up baggy pants.

UltraClear is the first-of-its-kind solution for revitalizing the skin and making your face appear fresher, smoother, tighter, and younger in just one 20-minute treatment. It is clinically proven and cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). UltraClear uses short, concentrated light beams to gently remove top layers of dull and damaged skin, triggering the body’s natural healing process and stimulating new cell growth. At the same time, UltraClear deposits controlled thermal energy at the dermal level inducing just the right amount of thermal energy at the right skin depth to start the rejuvenation process, increasing collagen and elastin production, revitalizing your skin from the inside out. UltraClear’s innovative MIRACL technology dramatically reduces the treatment pain level, making it the most comfortable facial rejuvenation solution on the market. Pain score with UltraClear treatment is typically less than 3 on a scale of 10, while most other methods have pain scores greater or equal to 6. UltraClear offers a wide range of patient-friendly treatment options tailored to your desired results and lifestyle. If you want to quickly smooth out your skin with a more radiant complexion but get back to work as soon as possible, the little-to-no-downtime lunchtime light peel may be your best option. You may have some redness and mild swelling on your face right after the treatment, but you can apply make-up within a few hours and go back to work the next day. If you wish to treat deep wrinkles or acne scars and can take a few days off, a more intense option may be performed for more dramatic improvement with an average of 3 days of downtime. With UltraClear’s lunchtime light peel option, you will notice an improvement in your skin in just 2 to 5 days after your treatment. The results may last a few months. For UltraClear’s more intense treatment options, your skin will continue to get better for up to a year and the results may last 1 to 5 years. However, since our skin continues to age and new wrinkles and spots may appear due to sun damage and daily life, additional treatments may be needed to maintain healthier, fresher and younger-looking skin. Unlike other energy-based technologies that tend to cause thermal-induced side effects, such as post-inflammation hyperpigmentation (PIH) and post-inflammation erythema (PIE), UltraClear’s revolutionary cold fiber laser technology and advanced precision energy control minimize unwanted thermal damage, making it safe and effective for all skin types, including previously high-risk skin type III and above (Asian and darker skin patients).

Malar Bags vs. Festoons | Plastic Surgeon Explains Differences

Malar bags are different to normal lower eyelid bags, as they are formed because of a structural problem in the skin of the lower lid and cheek areas. This is due to a loosening of the muscle in the face that helps close the eyelids (the orbicularis muscle), the skin and fat compartments. Festoons are mounds resulting from chronic accumulation of fluid (edema) below the eyelid in the upper cheek area. Festoons give the area under your eyes a look of puffiness and magnify the appearance of under-eye bags.
