Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Columbus

Your eyes reveal more about your age and emotional state than any other facial feature. Droopy, puffy eyes and eyelids may create a fatigued appearance that makes you look older than your actual age. Dr. Lichten performs eyelid surgery near Columbus, Ohio to help you create a younger and more refreshed eye appearance. Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can be used to remove fat and excess skin and retighten muscle in both the upper and lower eyelids.

Eyelid Surgery Candidates

Areas of puffy, droopy skin around the eyes affect people of almost all ages, though of course this tired appearance is more prominent in older adults. Most of Dr. Lichten’s eyelid surgery patients are between the ages of 40 to 70. Dr. Lichten has helped a wide range of people make a lasting improvement in the appearance of their eyes. Blepharoplasty candidates should be physically healthy overall and need to have a realistic idea of what the procedure can achieve.

Eyelid surgery may pose additional risk for people with certain eye problems, such as chronic dry eyes, inability to produce sufficient tears, glaucoma, or a detached retina. These individuals may be at increased risk for complications should they choose to undergo eyelid surgery. Dr. Lichten will carefully evaluate your health history, also taking into account diabetes, heart disease, and circulatory disorders that may increase your risks.

The Procedure

Eyelid ProcedureBlepharoplasty can restore the skin around the eyes to a more youthful state as well as reduce the signs of aging. When your upper lids have sagged, the surgery may even serve to improve impaired vision. Both upper and lower eyelid surgery require incisions along natural lines and creases of your eyelids, where any scarring will be well hidden. Through these incisions, Dr. Lichten tightens and trims underlying fat and muscle tissue before closing the incisions with fine sutures. Dr. Lichten also performs lower eyelid surgery using the transconjunctival blepharoplasty, with incisions entirely concealed inside the lower lid. Eyelid surgery can take anywhere between 1 to 3 hours depending on the extent of the procedure.

Blepharoplasty may be combined with face lift surgery in Columbus, Ohio as well as other procedures. In addition, Dr. Lichten may recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic to enhance the results of a blepharoplasty.
