Benefits of Laser Eyelid Surgery
Your eyes are often the first feature someone notices. They express emotion, warmth, and welcoming, but they can also reveal signs of aging. Eyelid surgery, medically referred to as blepharoplasty, is one way to address excess skin, skin laxity, and creases on the upper and lower eyelids. Traditional eyelid surgery is a popular approach; however, our extensively trained plastic surgeon often utilizes an advanced laser-based technique that achieves more selective results with less risk of scarring. Dr. Mark Richards can determine if laser eyelid surgery is the ideal option for your needs during your initial consultation.
Laser eyelid surgery can reduce the risk of bleeding and scarring because the laser seals the blood vessels as it works. The laser can also:
- Reduce puffiness by removing fatty tissue
- Remove excess skin
- Resurface and tighten skin for improved texture and tone
- Provide more precisely visualized treatment due to lack of bleeding
- Reduce the risk of postoperative bruising and limit swelling
In our skilled plastic surgeon’s hands, laser eyelid surgery can provide enhanced results for many patients. If you’re interested in learning more about laser eyelid surgery, or if you’re ready to schedule a consultation, please contact our practice today.
