Cosmetic Surgery of the Eyelids (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery is one of the most dramatic ways to rejuvenate your appearance. It can correct undesirable baggy eyes, dark circles, and puffiness to enhance your youthful look.
Dr. Toriumi will examine your eyes as a whole and take into consideration what your specific wishes may be. He will consider puffiness, the skin around the eyes and the creases along your eyelids. In upper eyelid surgery, an incision is only made along the natural crease of the upper eyelid. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision is made along the lash line and smile lines. After incisions are made, Dr. Toriumi will remove excess fat and skin and re-contour the underlying muscle. Finally, he will carefully close the incisions so that the scar is invisible.
To expedite healing and minimize discomfort, please follow Dr. Toriumi's explicit directions. If necessary, Dr. Toriumi may prescribe medication to ease discomfort. Dr. Toriumi advises that you limit any strenuous activities in the period immediately following surgery.
