Eyes are one of the first features we notice and perhaps the most expressive part of the face. By looking into someone’s eyes, we instantly decide if they are friendly, sad, tired, angry or engaged. With so much focus on this facial feature, many men and women are concerned when their eyelids begin to show signs of aging. In Raleigh, blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift) with Dr. Adam Stein rejuvenates the upper and lower eyelids to restore a more energetic appearance.
Request a consultation with Dr. Stein, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, to discuss how an eyelid lift can help you look as young as you feel.
What an Eyelid Lift Can Do for You
The delicate tissue surrounding the eyes is one of the first areas to sag. Blepharoplasty by Dr. Stein is a safe, effective procedure that can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. It brightens the eye area by treating:
- Excess skin that droops over the eyes
- Fatty deposits that cause puffiness
- Bags under the eyes
- Droopy lower eyelids
Dr. Stein is known for natural-looking results. In fact, if you look at our before and after photo gallery, you’ll see the dramatic difference blepharoplasty can make. But, if you just look at the “after” photos, you wouldn’t think that person had undergone surgery.
Dr. Stein is a facial cosmetics super-specialist, spending 100% of his time learning about and performing facial enhancement.
Your Consultation with Dr. Stein
In Raleigh, eyelid surgery restores the youthful appearance that droopy eyelids can betray. Dr. Stein specializes in facial procedures and brings an uncommon level of artistry to his work, resulting in a natural yet dramatic improvement. In your initial consultation, he takes the time to understand the look you want to achieve and discusses all of the factors that contribute to the success of your procedure.
Procedure & Recovery
When performing an upper eyelid lift, Dr. Stein places an incision within the natural crease of the eyelid to reposition fat deposits, tighten muscles or remove excess skin. For the lower eyelids, the incision is usually placed inside the lower lid, leaving no visible scar. Occasionally, excess skin or lax muscle requires that Dr. Stein make an incision just beneath the lower lashes. In any case, Dr. Stein has refined his technique to minimize visible scarring.
For patients in Raleigh, eyelid surgery is a quick, easy and effective way to look as young as they feel. There is virtually no pain, and bruising and swelling is minimal. Most of our patients return to work within a few days and resume their exercise routine within two weeks. Results appear within several weeks and are long lasting.
Many of Dr. Stein’s patients combine their eyelid lift with laser resurfacing for tighter, smoother eyelid skin. For even greater facial rejuvenation, some patients opt to have a face lift or a brow lift to reduce excess skin and wrinkles.
