The eyelid lift procedure can dramatically change the appearance of the eyes making them appear larger, less baggy and more youthful.
Ptosis or Blepharoptosis is a condition where the upper eyelid is droopy as a result of weakness of the muscle that elevates the eye known as the Levator Palpebrae Superioris, or a possibly a neurological condition. The lower eyelid can be weak as well, or lax. Laxity of the lower eyelid should be treated if necessary during a lower eyelid procedure.
Dr. Rikesh is absolutely amazing! He has an amazing personality and is very kind! I felt very comfortable with him and sharing my issues with him. If I needed to talk to him, he would bend over backwards to talk to me and answer all the questions and concerns I had. I was privileged to have had Dr. Rikesh as my surgeon. He listened to everything I wanted and took very good care of me. The results are amazing! My experience with him was wonderful and I recommend him to all my friends and family!J.L.
Any individual in relatively good health can have eyelid surgery. The procedure can be performed under general anesthesia, sedation or local anesthesia. Upper eyelid sagging, excessive skin or fat as well as lower eyelid bags, excessive skin or fat can be treated by blepharoplasty surgery. This is a same day procedure and well tolerated.
