Laser Blepharoplasty at The Langdon Center
The process of blepharoplasty or an ‘eyelid lift procedure’ involves removing excess fatty tissue and/or sagging skin from the eyelids. Once the eyelid lift surgery is complete, patients experience a more youthful look and, in some cases, better line of sight vision.
Dr. Langdon offers laser blepharoplasty at The Langdon Center. With laser blepharoplasty, both the upper and lower eyelids can be treated. A CO2 laser is used as a surgical instrument instead of a scalpel. Because the CO2 laser beam seals the blood vessels as it makes an incision, there is considerably less bruising after the procedure compared to conventional blepharoplasty using a scalpel. The average treatment time is 90-120 minutes, and requires a few days of downtime.
Benefits of Blepharoplasty
If you want to address cosmetic concerns relating to your eyelids, such as sagging or drooping skin, puffy eyes or a “tired” look, a blepharoplasty will help you achieve that goal. Each year, thousands of Americans enjoy the prolonged benefits of blepharoplasty. Because people you interact with focus primarily on the eye area, improving the appearance of the eyelids can have a great rejuvenative effect. After your blepharoplasty, you will experience vibrant, youthful-looking eyes and a more alert and energetic appearance.
Dr. Langdon has extensive experience with laser blepharoplasty procedures (since 1995). And because no scalpel gets used in the procedure, patients do not experience “black eyes” after surgery for several weeks. Realistically, laser blepharoplasty results in patients looking great after only a week.
