Droopy eyelids can make you look tired and old. We can’t do anything about your age, or how well you slept last night, but we can help you improve the appearance of your droopy eyelids.
Blepharoplasty is the surgical procedure to remove excess eyelid skin and fat. It is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthetic. After numbing the eyelid skin with an injection of local anesthetic, an incision is made in the natural crease of the eyelid, where the scar will be well-hidden. Excess skin and fat are removed. Dissolvable sutures are placed. Some bruising and swelling are to be expected, but can be minimized with use of ice, rest, and elevation the head.
TransBleph Direct Brow Lift Procedure
The TransBleph procedure is a revolutionary approach to upper eyelid rejuvenation that is simple, quick and highly effective. It enables Dr. Townley to simultaneously elevate and shape your eye brows (browlift) and, if necessary, remove excess eyelid tissue (blepharoplasty) through a single small incision hidden in a fold of your eyelid skin.
Upper Eyelid Rejuvenation:
As the upper face ages, the brow often begins to droop. When this occurs, excess eyelid tissue gathers in folds above the lid, creating a tired, worn-down effect. Blepharoplasty removes excess skin, but does not correct the sagging brow. The TransBleph procedure can combine a blepharoplasty with a brow lift for a more complete upper eyelid rejuvenation – unwanted tissue is removed and brow elevation is restored creating a more youthful, relaxed and refreshed appearance.
Am I a TransBleph Candidate?
If you are undergoing upper eyelid surgery for cosmetic or visual reasons and would like the refreshed appearance of a brow lift without a second set of incisions, TransBleph procedure may be for you.
To get a glimpse of the potential results, you can try a simple test on your own. Place your fingertips at the outer one-third of your eyebrows and gently raise the skin upwards. This will give you a good indication of what the procedure might do for your appearance.
Even if you don’t need upper eyelid surgery but do want the refreshed appearance of the subtle brow lift, then the TransBleph procedure is still an option. The best way to determine if TransBleph is right for you is by a thorough consultation.
