Blepharoplasty in Scottsdale

At AdmireMD® Plastic Surgery + Skin Clinic, we provide eyelid surgery in Scottsdale, also called blepharoplasty. This transformative procedure aims to revitalize both the upper and lower eyelids, involving the tightening of muscles and tissue and the removal of surplus fat and skin, ultimately yielding a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.

Eyelid Surgery at AdmireMD®

Blepharoplasty has emerged as a highly sought-after facial plastic surgery procedure, second only to rhinoplasty. This popularity underscores the significant role that the eyes play in contributing to overall facial symmetry and harmony.

Surprisingly, nearly two-thirds of all adults regard the eyes as the defining feature of the face. If you've been dissatisfied with the appearance of the skin surrounding your eyes, considering blepharoplasty could be a transformative step to enhance your look and elevate your confidence.

Eyelid surgery in Scottsdale is a safe procedure with minimal downtime, and Anthony A. Admire brings a wealth of experience to ensure that you achieve the desired results. Schedule your consultation today to explore the possibilities!

What is Blepharoplasty?

As we naturally age, our eyes change over time. This change can manifest as drooping and wrinkling in the upper eyelids and puffiness or bags in the lower eyelids, making a person look older or more tired than they feel. Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic or functional surgery used to treat aging upper and lower eyelids. It is done by removing excess skin and, occasionally, lax muscle and fat. At AdmireMD® Plastic Surgery + Skin Clinic, we specialize in offering blepharoplasty in Scottsdale to address concerns related to the appearance and function of the eyelids. This surgical intervention aims to rejuvenate the eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle, and fat, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed look. Depending on your unique needs and aesthetic goals, the procedure can be tailored to target the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.

What Are the Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

We’ve loved sharing with our patients the range of benefits this procedure offers, including: 

  • Restoration of a youthful and refreshed appearance to the eyes
  • Reduction of puffiness and bags under the eyes
  • Correction of drooping upper eyelids that may obstruct vision
  • Improved self-confidence and overall facial harmony
  • Enhanced peripheral vision and visual field

Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty

It’s important to note that we offer two distinct versions of the blepharoplasty procedure. Patients can choose to have an upper or lower eyelid surgery, but sometimes, having both surgeries simultaneously produces the optimal aesthetic result. 

Upper Blepharoplasty

This procedure addresses sagging or drooping skin on the upper eyelids, which can contribute to a tired or aged appearance. By carefully removing excess skin and sometimes repositioning or removing fat deposits, upper blepharoplasty can create a more open and alert eye expression.

Lower Blepharoplasty

This procedure targets concerns such as under-eye bags, puffiness, or excess skin on the lower eyelids. Lower blepharoplasty rejuvenates the lower eye area. This may involve removing or repositioning fat and tissue to reduce puffiness and create a smoother, more youthful contour.

Determining the right approach for each patient involves a comprehensive assessment and discussion with our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony A. Admire, to ensure that the chosen procedure aligns with the patient's goals and expectations.

Complimentary Procedures

In addition to blepharoplasty, patients at AdmireMD® Plastic Surgery + Skin Clinic can complement their eyelid surgery with a range of procedures to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Some complementary procedures may include:

  • Facelift: Combining blepharoplasty with a facelift can address aging concerns across the entire face, creating harmonious and balanced results.
  • Botox and Dermal Fillers: These non-surgical options can further enhance blepharoplasty results by addressing fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss in other areas of the face.
  • Skin Resurfacing Treatments: Procedures such as chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing can help improve skin texture and tone, complementing the rejuvenating effects of blepharoplasty.

These are just a few examples of how patients can enhance the results of their blepharoplasty with additional procedures tailored to their individual needs and aesthetic goals. During a consultation at our clinic, Dr. Anthony A. Admire will work closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that may include complementary procedures to achieve their desired outcome.

More About the Blepharoplasty Procedure

Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is characterized by an incision made along the eyelid's natural crease, resulting in minimal visibility once the healing process is complete. Following the incision, Anthony A. Admire will proceed to reposition fatty deposits, tighten muscles and tissue, or eliminate excess skin, ultimately imparting a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance to the eyes.

Lower eyelid surgery involves an incision just below the lash line, facilitating the removal of excess skin or fatty deposits. Upon completion of the procedure, Anthony A. Admire will meticulously close the incisions with sutures and wrap them in gauze to promote proper healing of the area.

Are There Risks with Eyelid Surgery in Scottsdale?

As with most surgical procedures, blepharoplasty carries certain risks. While rare, these risks may include bleeding, infection, dry eyes, skin discoloration, and difficulty fully closing the eyes. Collaborating with an experienced surgeon like Anthony A. Admire is essential for minimizing these risks. Diligently following post-surgery care instructions is another effective way to mitigate potential complications. During your consultation, we will address any concerns or anxieties you may have to ensure comprehensive care and peace of mind regarding your surgery.

Addresses the upper and lower eyelids' excess skin and/or fat (eye bags)

As the lower eyelids are typically among the first facial areas to exhibit signs of aging, a lower blepharoplasty restores a youthful appearance to this prominent focal point. Dr. Admire typically combines lower eyelid blepharoplasty with fat grafting to achieve comprehensive lower eyelid correction and balance with the upper cheek.

Dr. Admire's upper blepharoplasty procedure effectively and safely removes skin, leaving the upper eyes looking refreshed, more youthful, and always natural.

What’s the Recovery Process Like?

Following your eyelid surgery in Scottsdale, you will spend a brief period in our recovery area before being discharged to return home on the same day. Anthony A. Admire may recommend applying lubricating ointment and using cold compresses to aid the healing process and minimize discomfort from side effects such as swelling, bruising, irritation, or dry eyes. Additionally, your eyes may be wrapped in gauze after the procedure. You can expect to resume work within two or three days, but you must refrain from exercise and strenuous activities for at least two weeks as you recover. Swelling and other side effects typically diminish within a couple of weeks post-surgery, and we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to guide you through the healing and recovery process.
