Oculoplastic Surgery Tallahassee
Eyelid surgery offers an assortment of benefits for both men and women. Many people choose to have eyelid surgery in order to correct an imperfection that greatly affects the way a person feels about their facial appearance or the function of their eye.
One way to reverse these signs of aging is with oculoplastic surgery or eyelid surgery of either the upper or lower eyelid, or both. It is one of the most popular reconstructive procedures because it rejuvenates the eye which is an area that draws significant attention during first impressions.
Eyelid surgery is performed on people who desire to improve their facial appearance and it is for patients who suffer from skin cancer, damage to the eyelids, the tear duct system and the eye socket caused by physical trauma (including bad outcomes from previous eyelid surgery requiring reconstruction), congenital deformities, paralysis, tumors, aging or systemic diseases like Grave’s Disease.
In addition, individuals who suffer from eyelids that have an irregular shape or contour, such as bedroom eyes (upper eyelid ptosis) and excessively loose lower eyelids (ectropion) are candidates for eyelid surgery in order to revitalize their appearance and restore function. Common symptoms accompanying many of the described conditions include: excessive tearing (epiphora), obstructed vision, and dry eye. In addition to Blepharoplasty, the following are the three most common oculoplastic reconstructive procedures performed in our facial plastic surgery practice:
- Eyelid Reconstruction
- Ptosis repair
- Ectropion Repair
Although the recovery timeframe differs from patient to patient, one can expect a quick recovery from oculoplastic or eyelid surgery. As a result, it can make a patient’s eyes appear more youthful and natural. It also provides a patient with a heightened self-esteem.
