As we all know, the eyes are a prominent facial feature. Although the eyes are expressionless structures, the surrounding skin conveys emotion. The tissue, muscle, fat, hair and lashes all contribute to the wide array of expressions. Unfortunately, wrinkles and deep lines as well as puffiness under the lids develop as you age. In addition, exposure to the sun and hereditary factors contribute to the aging process. In many cases, people may look fatigued, worn out and older than their true age. Beyond possible visual impairment, these changes in your appearance can cause stress and anxiety.
Dr. Sinn is trained in several surgical procedures, such as blepharoplasty, forehead lift and brow lift in order to eliminate the majority of these problems.
To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to surgery. A complete examination of your eyes and face are made in order to take the most effective surgical approach. The amount, distribution and type of excess skin to be removed are carefully reviewed.
Dr. Sinn will provide you with pre-operative instructions that may include the elimination of specific drugs containing aspirin several weeks before surgery to minimize excess bleeding. Patients are also required to discontinue smoking two weeks before and two weeks after surgery as smoking adversely affects the healing process. Antibiotics may also be prescribed to prevent infection.
