Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Dr. Garlich's cosmetic evaluation of his patients begins and ends with their eyes. He believes that your eyes are your most beautiful feature because they convey emotion and expression. Unfortunately for many, the eyes often show the first signs of aging. As well, familial characteristics can give the appearance of aging even at a young age. These changes are often confused with an overly serious expression or lack of sleep.

Fortunately, most of these issues can be remedied by a relatively painless surgery requiring a very short period for healing. Eyelid surgery, or a blepharoplasty, removes extra skin and fat from around the eye area in a safe, measured manner without visible scarring. 

Following a blepharoplasty, a patient has minimal pain that typically requires only over-the-counter pain relievers.  Dr. Garlich has his patients place cool compresses over their eyes for 2-3 days and after this initial healing period can return to many of his or her daily activities. By one week post-surgery, the vast majority of bruising and swelling has subsided and the patient may begin to wear make-up again.

"I had a basal cell skin cancer taken off under my right eye that left a big knot.  I was VERY conscience of it and everyone was always asking what happened.  Dr Garlich revised my old scar and made my face look smooth!  Now, I have more self confidence and no one is asking about my scar...because you can't see it anymore!  I only wish I had taken care of it sooner.  Thank you Dr Garlich!!" -- L.B.

"From my very first contact with Dr. Garlich and his staff, I knew I was in capable and caring hands. Dr. Garlich's attention to detail and concern for patient satisfaction is second to none. The surgery has taken years off my appearance, and I couldn't be happier with my results. Thank you, Dr. Garlich!"  -- T.W.

"I sought advice from Dr. Garlich regarding my eyes as I felt I was looking much older and tired than need be. My 35th high school reunion was fast approaching and I decided to take the opportunity to brighten myself! Dr. Garlich and staff were absolutely wonderful. The consultation was very detailed, the day of surgery I was totally prepared with my presurgery vitamins and medications. I had my surgery performed in the office under local anesthesia, so I was awake for the entire thing. I can't say I wasn't a bit nervous and I had a few times when it was uncomfortable, but for the most part, I did fine. I followed all the post op instructions and was back to work on Monday. After full recovery, I had so many compliments on my eyes. My experience with Dr. Garlich and his entire staff is nothing but amazing and I refer anyone who asks me to his office without hesitation."  - K.J.
