Puffy lower eyelids led this 64-year-old retired woman to seek a consultation with Dr. Galante at his Schererville office. Eyelid surgery is one of the most popular forms of plastic surgery, in Indiana and throughout the U.S. and the world. These photos provide a good explanation.
Removing the baggy pouches under the eyes refreshed this patient's overall appearance in a rather simple, convenient procedure. Blepharoplasty is a relatively minor procedure that can usually be completed in less than an hour or 2.
Dr. Galante can perform eyelid surgery on the lower lids, the upper lids, or both in combination. Upper lid surgery addresses drooping eyelids that can cause patients to look tired or sad. Concerns with upper lids can also go beyond the cosmetic, sometimes affecting vision in more severe cases.
Recovery from eyelid surgery usually involves minimal discomfort, keeping the head elevated, and avoiding reading for the first couple of days after surgery. Most patients can return to work or their other daily activities within a few days, and nearly all patients are pleased at how much more alert and brighter their faces look.
If you're interested in eyelid surgery to improve your appearance, request a consultation with Dr. Galante, or call his office at (219) 322-3131 to schedule an appointment.
