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 Seattle facelift for more complete facial rejuvenation.

 

Before and after eyelid surgeryBefore-after-gallery

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.

On Thermage:

Being a guy I was pretty skeptical about Thermage, transforming this old mug into a Tom Cruise look alike. However my skepticism was completely blown away after the treatment. I’m still not Tom Cruise, but my wife thinks I look 10 years younger and that’s good enough for me.

I had my entire face done with the Thermage treatment, one side at a time. When the procedure was half way done, my wife and I looked at the first half results and it was like looking back in time, a the thermage side of my face was tighter in the jaw line area, my forehead was firm and my eyebrows didn’t sag as much, under my eyes was tighter and my troublesome under chin area was much tighter. The other major benefit I noticed is that my skin is rejuvenated to feel smooth and glowing – I call it the baby’s butt effect. It has been about a week since my treatment and I would do it again in a nanosecond. The treatment is relatively pain free, although the neck and under chin area was a bit more intense, but not enough to make me not want to do it again. I experienced no swelling, pain or other side effects that would prevent me from doing my work or social activities. In fact I went to a social dinner that night without a single person giving me a second look. The close friends that did notice late were so impressed that they too are investigating Thermage. My wife and mother-in-law (60’s) had thermage as a result of my experience and my mother in law looks amazing. Thermage really tightened and rejuvenated her skin. She is thinking of getting botox to further reduce her agelines and if she does she will look 10 year younger. I fully recommend Thermage due to its quick and easy procedure, cost benefit results, and zero period recovery procedure.
