👀 Upper and Lower #Blepharoplasty with CO2 #Laser 
 
Many people have excess skin and laxity of the upper eyelids that eventually leads to a feeling of heaviness or tiredness of the eyes at the end of the day. Some people even experience obstruction of vision due to excess eyelid skin. It can be hereditary or acquired with age. 
 
Additionally, some people have bags under the eyes or a prolapse of periorbital fat pads. If the bags are not too pronounced, we can camouflage the trough formed, or tear trough, with filler. If the bags are more pronounced, a lower blepharoplasty is the best solution. 
 
Our gorgeous patient was bothered by the bags under her eyes that she felt made her look tired all the time. She also wanted her eyeshadow to show on her upper eyelids. (Who else dislikes the end-of-the-day mascara transfer?!) We did an upper and lower blepharoplasty followed by Fractionated #CO2Laser for skin tightening. She is 3 weeks post-op in these photos and is glowing! 
 
Benefits of blepharoplasty:
✅ Permanent removal of excess eyelid skin.
✅ Improved aesthetic visibility of the iris and pupil leading to improved light reflection off the eye (you can see her eyes and a little twinkle 🤩).
✅ Improved vision in some patients. 
✅ Improvement of lower eye bags, giving a refreshed look.

Risks:
A scar in the eyelid crease and just below the lower eyelashes that fades rapidly over 1-2 months. Patients can also have bruising and swelling for 1-2 weeks after the procedure, and there is a very low risk of infection.

Dr. Sears and Dr. Gwinn offer upper and lower blepharoplasty as well as CO2 laser at our #SpokaneValley location. We’ll let you in on a secret: a new CO2 laser, the Lumenis Laser, will be arriving at our Coeur d’Alene location in the coming weeks! Schedule a consultation to see if this will be the right procedure for you!
