The common name for blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery. It is usually performed on patients who want to look younger and boost their personal self-esteem.
During a blepharoplasty procedure, your doctor will remove fat as well as excess skin and muscle from your eyelids. There are several medical reasons why you might choose to have a blepharoplasty procedure performed, including:
Bags under your eyes
Vision problems associated with puffy eyelids
As part of a facelift or browlift
Blepharoplasty is generally performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia. Because of the initial bruising associated with the procedure you will probably not want to go back to work for a week to 10 days after surgery. You will also experience some initial problems with your vision that should disappear in two to three days.
Once you have healed from the surgery, the results are in many cases permanent. You will look and feel younger.
To find out if you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty and to discuss your options you can schedule a consultation at your convenience.
I Adore Dr. Rassael Is Quite Possibly The Kindest Man And Has A Great Bedside Manner.

I Feel Comfortable With His Recommendations, His Work, And I Know I Will Always Get The Desired Results. His Office Staff Has Only Been Equally Polite, Accommodating And Thoughtful.

"I Have Been Treated At Millennium Medical By Dr.Michael Rassael For Over 2 Years With Botox Injection For Wrinkles On My Forehead, And I Have To Say I Would Not Even Look Anywhere Else.
