A Word from Your Blepharoplasty Specialist

There is more to beautiful set of eyes than the eyes themselves. The surrounding tissues affect the overall appearance of the eyes. Through surgical enhancements, I can eliminate factors that distract from the beauty of the eyes and allow the eyes to be the centerpiece.

Why eyelid surgery may be right for me

You may want to consider blepharoplasty if you experience any of the following conditions in the upper or lower eyelids:

  • Looseness, puffiness or wrinkles
  • Excess or puffy tissue that interferes with eyelid function or obscures your vision
  • Droopy lower eyelids
  • Bags or dark circles under the eyes

My procedure

Dr. Rao uses advanced techniques to safeguard patients and facilitate aesthetic results. An outpatient procedure, your Tucson eyelid surgery involves the removal of excess skin and fatty tissues from around the eyes. Dr. Rao will work with your natural contours to conceal incision lines.

My recovery process

Recovery depends on the individual. Most patients will experience some degree of bruising and swelling that will resolve with time. Some may also experience temporary dryness, extra tearing, a feeling of tightness around the eyes, light sensitivity or temporary blurred vision. In many cases, people feel ready to return to work only days after their procedure.

My results

Women and men who have had eyelid surgery tend to enjoy eyes that look bigger and more prominent, which causes the entire face to light up. Many people also say that eyelid surgery helped them to look younger, more energetic, happier and friendlier.

Related enhancements

For full facial rejuvenation, eyelid surgery is commonly combined with a facelift or neck lift, brow lift or nonsurgical solutions such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and laser skin resurfacing.
