For over 30 years, Dr. Ritacca has helped patients achieve the best vision possible through Lasik eye surgery, eye exams and prescribing glasses and contacts. Furthermore, Dr. Ritacca enjoys when his patients exude with confidence and self-esteem from a simple cosmetic surgery like blepharoplasty.
There are several reasons why a potential patient may be unhappy with their eyes such as; aging, sun damage, smoking, and obesity can cause the eyelids to droop and sag as the supporting tissues deteriorate. Eyelids that droop or bulge can cause people to appear much older or fatigued than they actually are.
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid lift surgery, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids by tightening muscles and tissue or removing excess fat and skin. This procedure takes years off someone’s face. In our experience most patients by age 35, men and women feel that they need to refresh their look, and appear rejuvenated.
The eyes, being one of the first signs of aging, tend to be a common topic within the practice.
Blepharoplasty is currently the most popular facial plastic surgery procedure after rhinoplasty. The draw of this procedure reflects the great importance of the eyes when it comes to perfecting overall appearance.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your eyes, you may want to consider blepharoplasty or perhaps a brow lift, to improve your look safely and effectively. The procedures are usually performed in an office with local anesthesia in as little as 45 minutes. Blepharoplasty can be combined with a browlift, facelift or other treatments to raise eyebrows and stimulate collagen for tighter skin.
After surgery, your eyes will be covered and medication will be prescribed to help ease discomfort. The first several days post-surgery, Dr. Ritacca will provide you with a list of things NOT to do for desired results. Stitches are removed about a week after surgery.
Bruising and swelling will continue to decrease after stitches are removed. Sunglasses and protective sun block are required to be worn for several weeks.
