Patients in Orange County seek a well-known plastic surgeon for upper eyelid surgery
William Shakespeare said, "The eyes are the windows to your soul." However, some people are unhappy with the appearance of their eyes. Whether the eyelids are drooping or appear puffy, highly skilled plastic surgeon Dr. Thuan Nguyen can help. The doctor and his compassionate team at The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery in Orange County provide treatment such as upper and lower eyelid surgery.
There are many reasons patients seek the skills of Dr. Nguyen and our team for eyelid surgery. We can treat the following:
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelids
- Lower eyelids that droop
- Bags under the eyes
- Excess fatty deposits that can make the eyelids appear puffy
- Loose or sagging skin that affects the natural contours of the upper eyelids or creates folds
The first step toward attaining the eyelids you have always wanted is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Nguyen. At the appointment, he will explore your candidacy for treatment. Candidates for eyelid surgery include those who are healthy and do not suffer from an illness or medical condition that can impair healing. Individuals without serious eye conditions and non-smokers are the best candidates for treatment. We will evaluate your overall health and may take photographs.
If you are a candidate for eyelid surgery, we will discuss your goals, the type of anesthesia used, and a recommended course of treatment. We will also address any questions you may have. Patients often ask about the recovery period, when they can resume normal activities and exercise, and medications that may be prescribed after surgery. We are happy to address these questions to ensure understanding throughout the treatment process.
Before the surgery, we may order laboratory tests or recommend certain medications. It will be important to avoid aspirin, ant-inflammatory drugs, and herbals supplements before the procedure because they can increase bleeding. We will recommend coordinating transportation to and from your appointment and having someone remain with you at least for the first night following surgery.
