The eyelid skin is some of the thinnest and most fragile skin on the human body. It is natural for it to loosen, stretch and hang heavily over the eye as we age. When it unfortunately happens early in life or so dramatically that it makes a patient look tired and poorly rested all the time, it can affect the way people see that person. Some may think you are in poor health, not sleeping well, or angry all the time and mistakenly treat you differently.
Eyelid surgery is a safe procedure to help reduce that unsightly appearance of heavy, tired and droopy skin on the upper and lower eyelids. Every patient has their own specific condition related to the eyelids, and Dr. Gujrati takes that fully into account in the consultation.
Dr. Gujrati performs both Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) under Local Anesthesia with sedation as needed for comfort. This helps our patients avoid high risks, save money from paying excessive hospital operating room fees, and recover TWICE as fast as surgery under unnecessary General Anesthesia.
Upper Eyelid Surgery addresses removal of excess eyelid skin and creating a natural, soft eyelid crease to create a youthful and more rested appearance of the eye. Dr. Gujrati’s techniques create undetectable scars, leaving patients with a youthful, healthy and vibrant look.
Lower Eyelid Surgery is primarily done to remove the dreaded puffy “bags” under the eyes. Also performed under Local Anesthesia with light sedation, Dr. Gujrati is often able to complete this surgery without any visible scars on the skin of the face. The result is a bright, tightened, and more youthful look for the patient to enjoy and for everyone in their lives to be amazed by.
