The eyes are one of the places in the body where aging is most pronounced and noticeable. When we first meet someone, we tend to look them directly in the eyes, and create our first impression based on what we see there.
When the eyelids sag, droop and puff up, it can telegraph a feeling of anger, sadness or exhaustion, emotions that may not necessarily be authentic. Wrinkling and discoloration in the eyes can also detract from an otherwise winning smile. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure to help restore a youthful, refreshed aesthetic to the eyes, in both the lower and upper lids.
It can help combat bags under the eyes, and address excess fat, tissue and skin that may even be impairing vision. Dr. Gabriel will tailor your procedure to your unique needs, focusing on the areas that are most problematic. Scars will be well hidden within the upper eyelid creases and the lower lash lines. Not only is Dr. Gabriel a skilled and seasoned veteran of cutting edge blepharoplasty techniques, he is also an artist who can create nuanced, natural-looking results you will be pleased with for years to come, giving you arguably the best results in eyelid surgery Vancouver, WA has to offer.
Advantages of eyelid surgery may include…
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.
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.
