So much of our communication is done through our eyes, and improving a tired-looking appearance in this area can make a significant change in the way someone looks and feels. This can be achieved with Blepharoplasty in Cleveland with Dr. Frankel.
Eyelid Surgery Details
Dr. Frankel personalizes each eyelid surgery in Cleveland specifically to each individual, tailoring the procedure to meet the individual’s needs. He pays meticulous attention to detail in order to avoid an unnatural appearance.
Under most circumstances, blepharoplasty can be performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia, but may also be performed under twilight sedation or general anesthesia depending on the patient’s preference. Dr. Frankel does the vast majority of lower eyelid surgeries using incisions that are hidden on the inside of the eyelid, without skin incisions. He avoids outdated techniques, which can often result in unnatural and less youthful-looking outcomes.
Upper eyelid surgery alone can typically be performed with local numbing (anesthetic) and light oral sedation. The upper eyelid incisions are hidden within the natural skin crease and are often difficult to see even one week after surgery, once the sutures are removed.
Dr. Frankel uses a variety of techniques — especially for the lower eyelids, depending on the patient’s anatomy and tissue characteristics — to achieve the best result for the individual patient. The procedure time for blepharoplasty averages between 1-2 hours.
