Eye Surgery by Houston Cosmetic Surgeon
Eyes tend to show signs of aging earlier than elsewhere on the face or body. The naturally thin skin of the area combined with a loss of collagen and elastin can lead to drooping, saggy or puffy eyelids. Cosmetic surgery can help you stop the clock and restore the youthful contours of your face. Laser eye surgery minimizes the need for more invasive procedures and can even reduce your recovery time.
Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is designed to rejuvenate and enhance the appearance of the eyes. Our Houston cosmetic surgeon uses laser eye treatments to remove the fatty deposits that can create excess puffiness in the eyelids, tighten loose or sagging skin, eliminate fine lines and wrinkles or remove the bags that commonly develop under the eyes.
Laser blepharoplasty uses a laser rather than a scalpel, which allows for a faster, more comfortable recovery. Clients are less likely to suffer from post-surgical complications, such as post-operative hemorrhage, bruising or swelling. Many people even experience less pain since the laser effectively seals nerves and sterilizes tissue as it passes through.
After your laser eye procedure, you may be advised to relax at home for a few days. You may experience some slight discoloration during healing, but within a week to 10 days, your eyes will look refreshed and revitalized.
