Who is a good blepharoplasty candidate?
If you are in or near the Vancouver, WA or Portland, OR areas and you are unhappy with the appearance of your upper or lower eyelids due to puffiness, sagging, discoloration, wrinkles or vision impairment that has not responded to less invasive treatments, a surgical eyelid lift may be ideal for your needs.
Dr. Gabriel suggests that his Portland blepharoplasty patients be in good health, both psychologically and physiologically, with no major medical issues. They should be non-smokers, and have realistic expectations for their surgery. Typical blepharoplasty clients will be between 40 and 65 years of age, although Dr. Gabriel has seen excellent results in those both younger and older.
The only way to tell for sure if eyelid surgery is appropriate for your aesthetic goals is to schedule a confidential consultation with Dr. Gabriel in Vancouver, WA.
How can I move forward with my eyelid surgery?
Dr. Gabriel sees clients from Portland, OR, Vancouver, WA, and the surrounding areas, as well as from all over the country and the globe. Once you schedule your confidential consultation, Dr. Gabriel will be able to perform a physical evaluation as well as a thorough review of your medical and surgical history.
He will then begin to formulate a plan of action for resolving your unique aesthetic concerns. Dr. Gabriel believes that a well-informed, educated client has the best chance at a successful procedure, so he will take all the time necessary to answer your questions in detail, including those on the topics of insurance, costs and financing; risks and advantages of blepharoplasty; recovery and downtime; and what you can anticipate in terms of your final outcome.
You will be provided with access to our library of before and after photography for our Portland eyelid surgery patients, so you can see firsthand the lovely results Dr. Gabriel is able to facilitate for both the lower and upper eyelids.
