Forehead Lift Rhode Island
The eyes are the window to the soul, and the first thing we notice when meeting another person. Our eyes are so important in creating a first impression that they may mean the difference between a friendly encounter and none at all. Dr. Enzer’s years of specialized training as an ophthalmologist and oculofacial plastic surgeon give him an unparalleled advantage in treating concerns such as heavy lids, low set brows, or bags under the eyes, and will work with you to achieve the youthful look you desire.
Are you suffering from heavy upper eyelids? Do people always say you look tired? Do you feel like you have a “visor” interfering with your vision? Do you notice that you are raising your brows so high to see that by the end of the day your eyes won’t stay open? If this sounds familiar, let Dr. Enzer help you see the world clearly again.
What can I expect during my consultation?
During your consultation with Dr. Enzer, he will listen to your concerns and after a thorough examination let you know what the best surgical option will be for you. For many patients there will be multiple options depending on the cause of why your eyelids are drooping. Some patients may be eligible for insurance to cover the cost of upper eyelid surgery if the main concern is a blockage of peripheral vision. The difference between what is considered cosmetic and what your insurance company may cover will also be defined during your consultation, as well as what you could expect from each of the two approaches.
What is eyelid surgery like?
Upper eyelid surgery involves the surgical removal of excess skin and fat tissue to give you a more rested and/or youthful appearance to the eyes. This surgery is usually performed in an outpatient facility and under a mild anesthesia to make sure that you are comfortable. After your surgery you should expect your activities to be limited for a couple of weeks. Bruising and swelling are common, but pain is minimal for most patients. Every patient heals at a different rate, and Dr. Enzer will see patients after their surgery to discuss what to expect for the remainder of the post-operative period.
Dr. Enzer has helped develop and perfect the techniques for these procedures, and has taught hundreds of other doctors, both nationally and internationally, how to safely perform these procedures.
