How is the Procedure Performed?
Dr. Langdon will perform your laser eyelid lift in 1-2 hours. Because the laser cauterizes the blood vessels and minimizes bleeding, the surgical field is clearer, giving Dr. Langdon a better view of exactly what amount of correction is needed. He’s better able to ensure that the incision’s placement is precise, the amount of tissue removed is what’s required, and the skin is tightened in order to achieve the most natural, beautiful results.
Laser eyelid lifts are outpatient procedures, and you’ll be able to recover in the comfort of your home the same day. Ice packs and cold compresses are often all that’s required to reduce post-operative discomfort, which usually subsides in a day. Without much less bruising and swelling to recover from, you should be able to resume most of your normal schedule within 2-4 days. It may be up to 2 weeks before you’re cleared for more strenuous exercise.
What Results Can I Expect?
The beauty of the laser eyelid lift is that you don’t have to look past significant bruising and swelling to see your results right away. You can see immediately how much smoother, and more refreshed your eyes appear.
When we’re talking to others, it’s our eyes that receive the most attention. It’s how we as humans understand and interpret how our colleagues, friends, and loved ones feel. Dr. Langdon is triple board-certified in Dermatology, Cosmetic Surgery, and Facial Cosmetic Surgery, and with his talent and 34 years of experience, he can restore your eyes to their youthful glory and give you a smooth, refreshed appearance so you can put your best face forward.
