This is a model not an
actual patient

It is more than a truism that your eyes are the windows to your soul. Studies have also shown that a person will focus on your eyes first before looking at the rest of your face. Blepharoplasty also known as an eyelid tuck is for tightening theupper eyelids and removing bags and tightening the lower eyelids.

Dr Gladstone performs the upper blepharoplasty using local anesthesia with oral sedation. The purpose is to remove the excess skin from your eyelid so they don’t feel so heavy as well as to give more eyelid show which appears more youthful. For women, an upper blepharoplasty decrease smearing of makeup from redundant skin. Most of the stitches that Dr. Gladstone places are dissolvable, though a few are removed at one week. Generally, there is one week of downtime. Scars on the eyelid tend to heal very well.

Dr Gladstone performs a transconjunctival lower blepharoplasty. It is performed using local anesthesia with oral sedation. There are no stitches or external scar since the incision is made on the inside if your eyelid. Fat that is creating the bags is gently removed. Dr Gladstone will then laser the skin around the lower eyelid in order to tighten it. Generally, there is one week of downtime.

Dr Gladstone also performscanthopexies which tightens and raises the outside of the eyelid, and can add to the effect of blepharoplasties.
