Are you experiencing the signs of aging around your eyes? Do you worry over excess eyelid skin or puffiness underneath your eyes? Dr. Eric Cerrati can perform a blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift or eye lift, to restore youth and beauty to your overall appearance. Eyelid surgery is an excellent solution for those who are ready to surgically reverse the signs of aging around their eyes and rejuvenate their eyelids.
Blepharoplasty is a precise surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Dr. Cerrati can perform this procedure in an outpatient setting on the upper lids, lower lids or both. Various techniques are used to correct issues with the upper and lower eyelids, depending on what is needed. Blepharoplasty is used to correct:
- Sagging or hooded skin in the upper eyelid
- Excess fat or a puffy appearance in the upper and lower eyelids
- Sagging skin or bags underneath the eyes
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles around or below the lower eyelid
Dr. Cerrati can explain how this procedure can help you in a confidential eyelift surgery consultation at his South Jordan or Salt Lake City offices.
Skilled Eyelid Surgeon in Utah
Due to the fine, thin skin around the eyes, blepharoplasty can be a complicated surgical procedure. It takes precise movements and the hand of a skilled eyelid surgeon to perform such delicate work. Working so close to the eyes demands experience and expertise. Incisions are tiny and must be placed strategically in order to hide scars that could affect your appearance.
Dr. Eric Cerrati is a fellowship trained and double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Utah. He possesses the necessary training and experience to perform blepharoplasty procedures and achieve beautiful results. No matter the aging evidence around your eyes, Dr. Cerrati is a skilled eyelid surgeon who can do what is necessary to help you reach your aesthetic goals.
Loose skin and fat can gather in the upper eyelid as time passes, causing some to reflect a tired look that is not welcome. An upper blepharoplasty, or upper eyelid lift, can correct this aging effect by removing minute amounts of fat, muscle and excess skin from the upper eyelid. Dr. Cerrati routinely conceals the incisions from an upper eyelid lift, within the natural creases of your eyelid.
Lower blepharoplasty, or a lower eyelid lift, is used to correct under eye bags caused by excess fat. Although this procedure is technically more difficult than upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Cerrati removes just the right amount of skin and fat to create the desired appearance. With a lower blepharoplasty, you will look more youthful and refreshed. Dr. Cerrati also places strategic incisions that are hidden just below the lower lash line and in other discreet areas.
How Can I Expect to Recover from Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty incisions heal quickly and with minimal scarring, due to the thin skin on the eyelids. Dr. Cerrati will remove your sutures 4-5 days after surgery, and bruising should fade away shortly. Within 10-12 days, your eyes will appear rested and youthful. Dr. Cerrati’s patients typically return to work within 5 to 7 days following surgery. The results generally last for several years before any changes are noticed from continued aging.
Dr. Cerrati can explain the techniques of blepharoplasty, including recommending if you need upper, lower or both when you meet with him for an examination and consultation. Contact either his Salt Lake City or South Jordan offices to schedule your eyelid surgery consultation today.
