Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift surgery, is a relatively simple surgical procedure that can dramatically change a person's appearance. During eyelid surgery, excess skin is removed from the upper eyelid area, and/or bulging fat deposits are removed from the lower eyelid through miniscule, well-hidden incisions. By trimming the excess skin and fat that causes skin to wrinkle and sag, Dr. Camacho-Melo is able to rejuvenate the areas around the eyes for a greatly improved appearance. For the best results, Dr. Camacho-Melo may suggest a face lift or other additional procedures to complement your eyelid surgery.
After undergoing the procedure, patients will need to rest for much of the first week in order to ensure that their recovery period is as smooth and brief as possible. After two weeks, most patients are able to resume their normal routines. If you are eager to change the appearance of tired-looking, droopy eyelids, call Cammel Plastic Surgery today. Dr. Camacho-Melo performs eyelid surgery at his Tijuana practice with technical skill and artistic vision, creating a more vibrant, alert, and youthful appearance for his patients.
