• EYELID SURGERY
The appearance of our eyelids change as we age, and may be altered to such a degree, that the eyes may no longer reflect our inner youthfulness. Eyelid surgery is performed to reverse the natural transformation that occurs around the eyes, as we get older. Among the inevitable changes of age are puffiness and heaviness of the eyelids.
Dr. Wilensky’s goal during aesthetic eyelid surgery is to improve the appearance of the eyelids. This results in a more youthful image reflecting our inner selves. Depending upon Dr. Wilensky’s evaluation of the changes present in the eyelid tissue, his operation will be tailor made to improve the individual patient’s circumstances. Generally, the surgery is aimed at the removal of the extra skin, muscle, and fat causing the less than desirable appearance surrounding the eyes.
During his consultation with you, Dr. Wilensky will discuss your goals and the results you would like to achieve, to determine if eyelid surgery is an appropriate procedure for you. The patient-surgeon dialogue is important to both participants as a means of achieving the best possible outcome. Your personal eye health history will be carefully reviewed. Following that, the entire face will be examined to assess the quality of the skin, the underlying tissues, and the facial bone structure. The eyelid area will be evaluated to determine the effect on your appearance of any extra or loose skin and any excess fatty deposit.
Dr. Wilensky utilizes a variety of techniques to perform surgical rejuvenation of the eyelids. He addresses the specific concerns of each individual patient carefully. The best candidates for eyelid surgery are women and men who are in good health. These patients desire a more rested and alert look in the eyelid area. Eyelid surgery can achieve that patient’s goals, giving them a more youthful appearance.
This procedure is performed under general anesthesia, and typically takes one to two hours. Dr. Wilensky achieves a most positive outcome for you in his office-based surgical facility, on an outpatient basis. This allows you to return home following the operation.
