There are many reasons men and women may opt for eyelid correction. Whether you’re unhappy with the aesthetic appearance of your eyes or have functional problems due to sagging lids, it might be time to think about an eyelid lift. An eyelid lift is a generic term that can be used for either blepharoplasty procedures or ptosis surgery.
Dr. Stein is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon. Throughout his 26-year career, he’s helped countless men and women realize their anti-aging goals. Dr. Stein performs hundreds of eyelid lift procedures each year and is ready to help you look and feel your best self possible.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasties can be performed on either the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. The procedure is most commonly done for cosmetic purposes and produces lifelong results for the patient. However, many patients have blepharoplasty procedures when their field of vision has become obstructed by loose or sagging upper lids.
During a typical blepharoplasty, Dr. Stein will meticulously work to remove excess skin and thin unwanted fat pads. The result is a younger, well-rested appearance. Patients can expect to return to work within several days with an optimal outcome being seen in just several weeks.
What is Ptosis Surgery?
Ptosis surgery is generally done solely on the upper lid. Dr. Stein uses advanced surgical techniques to tighten and manipulate the eyelid muscles for a lifted appearance. Patients with a severe eyelid droop may be able to benefit from this procedure. Excess skin can also be trimmed during the surgery for a one-time procedure with dramatic results.
What’s Right for You?
Depending on the severity of your condition, you may be better suited for one or both of the above procedures. At the time of your in-person consultation, Dr. Stein will assess your concerns and speak with you about your desired outcome. With multiple treatment options, Stein Plastic Surgery can customize treatments according to your individual needs.
I scheduled s consultant with Dr. Stein for lower blepharoplasty. He was very attentive and knowledgeable and answered my questions without making me feel overlooked. The atmosphere in his practice eased me and I cannot say enough wonderful things about his staff, starting from the receptionist to the procedure area. The results exceeded my expectations and I am so happy with my results. I couldn’t think of any other surgeon that I would trust to perform any of his areas of specialty for me. I highly recommend Dr. Stein to anyone who would be looking for natural looking results and the aftercare is a plus. He called me at home later that day to make sure I was doing ok. Hands down Dr. Stein is the BEST!
