The Wells EyeDeal
Moving to our new location at 1707 Nicholasville Road has allowed Wells Plastic Surgery & Skin Care to expand our service offerings. We now have an operating room which allows us to offer the convenience and privacy of in-office surgery for certain procedures. Our most popular surgical procedure done in-house has been the Wells EyeDeal is an upper eyelift or blepharoplasty.
One of the first things you notice about a person are the eyes. Your eyes are literally make your first impression. Excess skin and puffiness can make you look tired and older, and this is not the first impression anyone wants to make.
Your upper bleph is done under local anesthesia with oral sedation in our surgical suite. Patients arrive 45 minutes before the procedure to allow the oral medication to relax them. The patient is then taken to our OR for local anesthesia and the procedure which takes about 90 minutes. Patients rarely complain of discomfort during the procedure. Afterwards the patient is shown how to apply cool compresses to reduce swelling. They are observed in our quite recovery area for 45 minutes and are then released to the care of a friend or family member.
After the surgery, patients will keep the head elevated for a week, and keep cool compresses applied to the eyes for the first 48 hours. The patient returns in three days to have their sutures removed. While pain medication is provided, it is rarely needed after 24 hours. They can usually drive, return to work, wear makeup and start your recommended eye care regimen the first week.
As for results, our patients report that they love their new, refreshed eyes and that they can’t believe how easy and affordable it was. They tell us their eyes look more open, brighter, more alert…and younger.
