Blepharoplasty — An Eye Opening Procedure at the Facial Center for Plastic Surgery

Houston plastic surgeon, Dr. Michel Siegel specializes in delivering exceptional results to blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery or eyelift) patients. Dr. Siegel can reverse the problem of drooping eyelids and puffy bags below the eyes, making a dramatic improvement to your appearance.

Your eyes are one of the first features that give away your age. In fact, drooping eyelids and wrinkles can make you look older and less energetic than you feel. Due to the minimal recovery time, blepharoplasty has become the procedure of choice for many patients seeking facial rejuvenation.

This minimally invasive procedure can be performed in the office under a local anesthetic, similar to a trip to the dentist. The procedure takes about an hour, and there is usually minimal bruising and swelling, allowing most people to return to work in about 5 days.

Most patients are 35 and older, but if this condition is a hereditary problem, you may want to have the surgery at a younger age. This procedure can also be performed in conjunction with a facelift or browlift, if other areas of your face are contributing to an aged appearance.

It is important to understand that blepharoplasty will not remove the fine lines surrounding your lower eyelids caused by age, sun damage, smoking or genetics. Other rejuvenation procedures can be performed at the same time, to help improve the skin surrounding your eyes such as BOTOX(R) and skin resurfacing procedures using chemical peels and lasers.

Dr Siegel's goal is to reverse the passage of time without changing your features. Many patients are concerned about the "pulled" look associated with movie stars that have had excessive surgeries. Dr Siegel asks patients to look at a photo of themselves from 10 years ago to get an idea of their results. Your acquaintances will just think you've had some decent rest.

Dr. Siegel is double board certified by The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and by The American Board of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.
