At Adoro Medical Spa, Dr. Pacheco offers her extensive experience as an oculoplastic surgeon to Annapolis area patients who want to rejuvenate their look with an eyelid or brow lift. These procedures can not only make a patient look younger, they will feel more confident about their appearance!
The delicate skin around the eyes can become wrinkles and puffy as the result of the normal aging process. This can cause your eyes to look more tired. The good news is that an eyelid lift can help remove the excess skin and trim the fat from around the eyes. An eyelid lift is also known as a blepharoplasty.
In most cases, an eyelid lift is performed under sedation. It is rarely performed under general anesthesia. Patients will be able to go home the same day of their procedure. If you are looking for a doctor who performs eyelid surgery, then you should contact Dr. Pacheco. Dr. Pacheco performs most of her eyelid lifts with a CO2 laser. Local anesthesia may also be used for some patients.
You can expect to experience some bruising and swelling after your surgery, but that will usually go away within one week. You will need to avoid strenuous activities for at least one week because that will help minimize the risk of infection and bleeding. The sutures will be removed within nine to 10 days of surgery. You will notice the full results within four to six weeks.
Dr. Pacheco also performs brow lifts. A brow lift lifts the eyebrows and tighten the forehead. There are both surgical and non-surgical brow lifts. Dr. Pacheco will help you decide which option is the best for you. Bruising and swelling are two of the most common side effects of a surgical brow lift. Those side effects usually go away within one week, and serious complications are rare.
A non-surgical brow lift involves using Thermacool by thermage. This procedure gives a subtle improvement immediately, and the results will continue to improve over the next six months. There is no downtime needed, and patients rarely experience any side effects.
In many cases, a brow lift is combined with other procedures. Face lift surgery, dermal fillers and eyelid lifts are some of the procedures that are performed with brow lift.
