If you suffer from drooping upper eyelids or puffy bags below your eyes, you may wish to consider eyelid surgery. Knoxville, Tennessee, plastic surgeon, Dr. Stephen Lazarus has been performing eyelid surgery for patients throughout Tennessee since 1983. With precise techniques and surgical expertise, Dr. Lazarus can remove the excess skin and fat from your upper and/or lower eyelids, which can cause you to look older and more tired than you feel.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is often performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery techniques, such as a facelift or browlift, but is a very effective procedure when performed alone. Most of the patients who visit us for eyelid surgery at our Knoxville practice are 35 or older. However, we often treat younger patients who experience baggy eyelids due to heredity.
Eyelid Surgery in the Knoxville Area
Dr. Lazarus places great importance on the initial consultation to discuss your goals and expectations with eyelid surgery. He will then create a detailed treatment plan to best meet your plastic surgery needs.
Eyelid surgery is performed in our AAAASF-accredited office-based plastic surgery practice, where a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) and other ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) certified staff will attend to your needs. The duration of eyelid surgery varies among individuals, but generally lasts from one to three hours. The incisions necessary for eyelid surgery are made along the natural creases of the eyelid to prevent noticeable scarring.
Dr. Lazarus’ skill and precision are applied to every eyelid surgery at our Knoxville practice. If you are interested in eyelid surgery, or any other facial plastic surgery procedure, contact Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Associates at 865.588.1662 to schedule a consultation.
