Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) in Provo Utah

Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove fat – usually along with excess skin and muscle – from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, it won’t remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. Eyelid surgery at our Salt Lake City, Utah area clinic is often performed in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a forehead lift or rhinoplasty.

The Procedure

Eyelid surgery helps correct drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags below their eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle. Upper-eyelid surgery may be covered by insurance if used to correct visual field defects. In some cases, facelift surgery may also be chosen for more complete rejuvenation benefits.

Dr. Rose performs this 1 to 3 hour outpatient procedure at the Riverwoods Surgery Center using general anesthesia for patient safety and comfort. During the recovery period, you may experience temporary discomfort, swelling, bruising, and eye irritation and sensitivity to light. Most patients can return to work within 7 to 10 days, and more strenuous activities in about 3 weeks. Full resolution of bruising and swelling may take slightly longer.

Testimonials

I have been meaning to send you an email and let you know how happy I am with my results and experience with you. I went to 5 different doctors and chose you. Knowing different results with people that I know, I am pretty sure that those other doctors would have done a fine job. After going to your office and the experience that I had with you and your staff, I knew that you were the doctor for me. You are the most professional doctor that I saw. It was so much more comfortable for me to go over all of the information about breast augmentation with you at your desk and me fully dressed. I didn't have that experience with any of the other doctors. You have a way of making people feel at ease as much as possible. It was nice to have a doctor tell me sizes to consider that would be proportionate to my body frame.

Your staff is so wonderful. Each person in your office is so pleasant to deal with. I don't think that you could have better staff and it helped make my final decision to go to you to have my procedure done.

You did an amazing job!! This is confirmed to me each time one of my friends or family members tells me how natural and great I look. I have decided, if you have something about yourself that bothers you and can be fixed, fix it! The confidence boost that this breast augmentation has given me is awesome. My husband said Dang, I have never heard you talk about any part of yourself like this before. I replied with, Have you ever seen any part of me look so great? We both said that you must have been very gentle during surgery, because I had one tiny little bruise and I felt great quickly after.

I am very happy with my results and I would recommend you to anyone. I have found myself trying to think of people that I could tell to go to you and I realized it probably wouldn't be very nice to tell people that they need to improve their looks if they hadn't even thought of it before. Two of my friends have come to you already and feel the same as I do. We need more surgeons out there like you.

Sincerely,K
