The eyes are a focal point of the face, and aging changes around the eyes can cause a person to appear tired or older than they really are. Sagging upper lids or baggy, puffy lower lids brought about by the aging process can make for a less-than-favorable first impression.
At PPSD, we are one of the largest groups of qualified, board-certified plastic surgeons in the region. Even though we are a large practice, our goal is to provide you with a personalized, boutique experience that is personalized to your needs. We do not believe in one-size-fits-all surgery, but instead tailor each treatment plan to the individual patient, for youthful, natural-appearing results, and the end goal of giving you the best eyelid surgery Charlotte, Gastonia, Shelby, Hickory, Lake Norman and surrounding cities could offer you. The first step in any cosmetic surgery is a consultation with your surgeon.
During this visit, the doctor will examine your eyelids, review your medical records (including any reports or prescriptions from an eye doctor), survey before and after photos, discuss your goals for surgery, and answer any questions or concerns you may have about the cosmetic surgeries that are best for you. While eyelid surgery can correct certain vision problems resulting from low-hanging lids, if you have a history of other eye conditions it may be necessary to consult with an ophthalmologist before attempting blepharoplasty.
Your plastic surgeon will work with you to arrive at the best treatment plan for your needs. We will review the procedure and what you can expect, from the anesthesia used to the details of your recovery. Most patients leave their consultation feeling exhilarated and excited to take the next step. For your convenience, PPSD has offices throughout North Carolina and we also welcome out-of-town patients.
