Are Your Eyes Aging?

650_iStock-000017991875SmallAging can really affect the eyes. Your once wide-open, sparkling eyes become droopy with bags underneath. What can be done to relieve this tired, baggy look?

We can regain the youth in the eye area. We perform procedures that lift the upper lids, remove bags from the lower part of the eyes, and, in some cases, you might be a candidate for a special procedure where we not only repair the lower eyes but also perform a cheek lift. The procedure is called a lower blepharoplasty combined with a mid-facelift.

There are several ways these procedures can be performed. Most procedures will be performed in the office, usually with local anesthesia.

After your procedure is complete, you will have a short recovery time based on the exact procedure. Because lasers can be used to complete the surgeries, there will be little bruising, swelling, or other complications associated with the surgery. If the laser is the only instrument used, you will most likely be able to get back to work in a day or two. If more complicated surgery, such as the mid-facelift, is performed, you will most likely have to miss work for at least a week. Again, even with the more complicated surgery, there will be minimal swelling, bruising, and pain.

To find out if you are a candidate for surgery, give us a call!

Our office is now open!

Your health (and ours) is our highest priority so we are making a few changes to our reopening so that you can feel safe and confident coming in to see us. We are of course following all federal and local guidelines such as wearing masks and conducting phone screenings prior to your appointment but we are also implementing the following:

      Increasing the frequency of cleaning and sterilization to not only include exam rooms but also the waiting room, restroom, all doors, counters, etc.

      Offering multiple hand sanitizer locations throughout the office

      Reducing the number of appointments per day as well as our office hours, to limit the number of people in the office, including staff members

      Minimizing patient overlap to allow for proper social distancing

      Testing all surgery patients for COVID-19 at their pre-operative appointments

      Asking patients to leave family members or friends at home, unless they are coming with their primary caregiver. Please leave children at home as well

 

How can you help?

      Come alone to your appointment, unless you need your primary caregiver with you

      Please wear a mask or face covering to your visit and keep it on unless you are asked by Dr. Kearney or an RN to remove it

      Postpone your visit if you have traveled by air or experienced symptoms in the last 14 days

      Use a pen from the holder marked “clean” and put it in the one marked “used” when you’re done

      Use the hand sanitizers in our office

      In the rare case there is someone at the front desk when you come in please take a seat until we call you and maintain proper distance throughout your visit

      Take advantage of our virtual consultations or follow up appointments if it makes you feel more comfortable

Please bear with us as we work to return to our new “normal” and feel free to call or email with any questions. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Sincerely,

Dr. Kearney and staff
