Our eyes are the windows to the soul and are often the first thing to begin showing our age. Drooping eyelids are often genetic and can interfere with your vision. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, bags under the eye, or eliminate the excess skin associated with drooping eyelids. Dr. Whitlock’s Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery center can provide you their services for all of your eyelid needs. Now before you schedule your appointment, allow us to discuss this topic first. Whether you have hooded eyelids, drooping eyelids, or you have been in any accidents where your eyelids are no longer completely intact, Dr. Whitlock and his team at the Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery Center, have the precision, skillsets, and steady hands to provide you these services.
Through the Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery Center, eyelid surgery can focus on just the upper lids or lower lids or both. The results may last for up to 10 years and the surgery is performed under general anesthesia. That’s right, this procedure will last for about 10 years. There does not need to be any follow up treatments or procedures in between that time. The only follow up appointment we will need is to make sure that you aren’t experiencing any crazy side effects, mood swings, irritability, swelling, bleeding, bruising etc. The Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery Center will take excellent care of you!
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty can be performed on your upper or lower eyelids. Each one has different reasons and functions as to why that procedure is done. For your Upper Eyelids, it helps and assists to reduce puffiness in your upper eyelids. When you have folds from sagging skin it can cause issues for you on a daily basis. That is because when you have excess skin drooping into your eyes, you can’t see!
Now for your lower eyelids, if you are wanting to get rid of the excess skin, that can cause extreme bags under your eyes, having a Blepharoplasty procedure on your lower eyelid, will eliminate that completely! Say goodbye to bags under your eyes forever!
Just like any other procedure, you want to be sure you are an ideal candidate. You don’t want to go under the knife, or have a cosmetic surgery or procedure, if it’s not something you would benefit from. When you schedule your free consultation for Dr. Whitlock’s Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery Center, we will not only perform some basic health exams to determine whether you are physically healthy enough to under go certain procedures, but we are going to reach a mutual understanding whether or not you are an ideal candidate.
Now who exactly should not have a Blepharoplasty?
What an excellent question. Those who are not ideal candidates for eyelid surgery are those who suffer from glaucoma or have extremely dry eyes. If you have had any cardiovascular disease, or related symptoms or ailments, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, it could become a health risk and concern if you were to have this procedure. If you have been diagnosed with an overactive or underactive thyroid, then you qualify as someone who should not receive this treatment. Most individuals who are good candidates for blepharoplasty are in excellent health, and, therefore, do not suffer from any conditions that may slow or prevent healing. As a result, blepharoplasty is not advised for people suffering from those medical conditions.
If you feel you can benefit from Eyelid Surgery, you’ll want to set an appointment for a pre-surgical consultation at the Tulsa Cosmetic Surgery Center. This is where Dr. Whitlock and his amazing team will take excellent care of you. During the appointment, your vision, use of lenses and reason for the surgery will be reviewed and discussed. Dr. Whitlock will factor in age, ethnicity, and skin type into the assessment, as well. He will also ask very detailed questions regarding any medical issues you may suffer from. A Patient coordinator will review costs and payment options with you following your assessment with Dr. Whitlock. We want to make our services affordable to those in our community. We can discuss finance options, insurance coverage, or payment plans.
