With more than 35,000 successful operations, Dr. Cole is now sharing essential information on blepharoplasty . While the procedure is very common, its benefits and risks can be misunderstood.
“Blepharoplasty can be performed on healthy patients with excess skin folds around the upper or lower eyelids,” explains Dr. Cole. “This excess or loose skin causes cosmetic problems and may even obstruct your field of vision. Our procedure can also address under-eye bags and puffiness that prevent men and women from feeling confident and enjoying life to the fullest.”
In general, blepharoplasty complications are mild, says the Atlanta surgeon. The overwhelming majority of eyelid surgery patients will be able to go back to their normal routines within several days after the procedure, with complete recovery taking only two to three weeks.
The most common side effects are swelling, bruising, and local discomfort – all of which can be a natural part of the healing process and can be alleviated with cold compresses and over-the-counter pain relievers. In rare cases, follow-up procedures may be required.
Dr. Cole recommends that patients interested in eyelid surgery contact a licensed, board-certified surgeon for an expert assessment and practical recommendations.
A quadruple board-certified surgeon with over three decades of experience, Dr. Harvey “Chip” Cole is widely regarded as a global authority in facial surgery. He is the author of the #1 best-selling book “Face Change: Methods for Looking and Feeling Your Best”, and a fellowship instructor for two university programs.
A satisfied patient said: “Absolutely wonderful, if I could give 10 stars I would! Having complications not being addressed with my original surgeon, Dr. Cole and his staff compassionately helped me figure out my options. It was comforting to be in such knowledgeable hands. I would highly recommend their services.”
