Droopy skin around the eyes makes you appear older than you feel, affecting your self-esteem in the long run. Fortunately, you can stay younger through facial plastic surgery conducted by an expert cosmetic and oculofacial plastic surgeon. At Arizona Ocular & Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Heringer delivers Peoria blepharoplasty using state of the art equipment for in-office and on-site appointments. A successful procedure delivers a youthful appearance after removing excess skin, muscles, and fat deposits, eliminating the droopy and fluffy look of your eyes.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery/blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure responsible for repairing puffy and droopy eyelids to get a younger appearance. The procedure includes removing excess skin, muscle, and fat deposits in your lower eyelid, upper eyelid, or both. Blepharoplasty is best for men and women with unique aesthetic needs or who are looking to achieve better vision.

What to Expect During Blepharoplasty?

At Arizona Ocular & Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Heringer leads the team in ensuring your comfort before, during, and after your blepharoplasty procedure. A local anesthetic and sedative are used to ensure that your procedure is painless, minimally invasive, and precise.

For your upper eyelid, Dr. Heringer makes hidden incisions in the crease to improve your vision. Lower blepharoplasty involves nearly invisible cuts along the lower lash line. The cuts allow him to remove excess fatty tissue, excess skin and tightens the weak eye muscles.

Upon request, Dr. Heringer repositions fatty tissue for a more youthful look around the eyes. He may recommend laser skin resurfacing or fat grafting to improve the overall results of your procedure. Healing takes about a week, after which you are rejuvenated and well-rested.

  •   Drooping eyelids
  •   Excess skin on the lower eyelid
