They say that the eyes are the window to the soul, but they are also amazing indicators of our age. Sometimes they can betray us a bit by losing elasticity, sagging and making us appear much older, fatigued and even angrier or sadder than we feel. Fortunately, Dr. Craig E. Berris MD at the Center for Cosmetic Eyelid and Laser Surgery in Sacramento, CA offers a specialized treatment known as blepharoplasty. Also called an eyelid lift, it is used to restore your eyes to a more rested and youthful look.
Unlike some plastic surgery remedies, the eyelid lift is so subtle and yet so significant that patients receive many compliments about their vibrant and rejuvenated appearance, and yet no one realizes that plastic surgeons were involved! It is such a favorable option that it is the second most frequent plastic surgery performed in the country.
Dr. Berris is among the most experienced and skilled plastic surgeons where the eyelid lift is concerned and has thousands of blepharoplasty patients highly satisfied with their results. Many patients wonder just what the surgery involves and the good news is that it is a very fast and straightforward procedure.
As a patient of Dr. Berris, you will come to our office and the entire blepharoplasty will be completed within roughly one hour. There are no bandages required and the end results can be seen in roughly two weeks. This is how long it requires for your sutures to heal and any swelling or light bruising to fade completely.
Dr. Berris also provides lower lid surgery as well. This can be more complicated due to the behavior of fat beneath the eye. This is a form of eyelid lift that is more complex and can take longer to complete. However, it too can reduce the most obvious signs of aging in such a discreet manner that few realize you even had a plastic surgery procedure.
If you have considered the options available from plastic surgeons and discovered that an eyelid lift is what you want, it is important to discuss it fully with an experienced professional like Dr. Berris. He is very skilled in all forms of blepharoplasty and can make extremely useful suggestions about the most appropriate surgical and non-surgical solutions for your specific needs.
