Seeking Eyelid Surgery? Seattle Surgeon Dr. Sobel Gets Results

The aging eye has specific problems both above and below the eye, each treated differently. If you want to minimize excess skin, wrinkles, and fat pads around the eye, you should consider eyelid surgery. Seattle clinic Anderson Sobel Cosmetic Surgery can help you look younger and feel more confident. Since no other procedure rejuvenates the eye so effectively, patients often combine an eye lift with other procedures such as a face lift for more complete facial rejuvenation.

In the upper blepharoplasty, a fine incision is made in the crease of the upper lid. Loose skin and fat are removed and then carefully sutured. Dr. Sobel takes special care to remove the exact amount of skin so a natural-looking, more youthful result is achieved. The lower eyelid incision is usually made from the inside of the lower lid. A pinch of skin may also be taken. Excess fat, which causes under eye bags, is removed to tighten and firm.

IV sedation will be used and can be as light or as heavy as each individual requires for their eye lift. The skin around the eye heals especially quickly because dissolving sutures are used. Dr. Sobel will examine the patient a day or two after surgery to make sure everything is healing properly. Cold compresses will help minimize swelling and bruising. Patients are usually up and around in a day or two. Swelling and bruising may remain for up to a week or so, and is most noticeable for the first week.

The final results of an eye lift are a rested, more youthful appearance with excess skin and bags around the eye reduced. Individual results vary according to each individual’s age, skin type, healing ability and other factors. Improvement in appearance is often quite dramatic.

Open letter to the staff of Anderson • Sobel Cosmetic Surgery:

When I began this journey, I followed all the recommendations to ensure I had the right physician with the right credentials performing the right procedures for me. Dr. Anderson filled all those criteria and many more as I found out but I could have never known in advance how everyone I came in contact with at ACS would assist me along the way and surpass my expectations.

I certainly expected the highest level of professionalism and medical expertise. As a nurse, I watched for proper attention to standards of practice and never observed anything even questionable. But I quickly discovered what I experienced at ACS was also intangible, from your hearts and centered on making me feel care for as a patient and cared about as a person. Everyone associated with the practice understands that this is as much an emotional experience as it is a physical one. Unwavering support, sensitivity, empathy and honest responses to any and all questions built my trust and reduced my anxiety with every office visit and phone call.

Now into follow up care, I am grateful to be guided by educated skin care professionals on maintaining my ‘investment.’ No more cosmetic counter, magazine or TV commercial empty promises from strangers, you care about me and my ongoing success. I could not have anticipated the impact of making this decision on my daily life and self esteem or the enjoyment I have gotten from sharing my positive experiences since the procedure with my ACS ‘support team’.

I’ve gained (and thankfully lost) a number of things from this surgery not the least of which is a reaffirmation that there is no substitute for thoughtful preparation in making a decision like this. But what I intend to share with everyone at every opportunity is that ACS is the gold standard in total patient care addressing the whole person before, during and following the procedure. I have had the pleasure of experiencing a transformation with your guidance. I have also grown to know and respect each of you for your priceless contribution and to consider you as friends.
