Although Dr. Devgan excels in all aspects of plastic surgery, she believes her micro-specialty to be in blepharoplasty (as well as a few other procedures). Blepharoplasty can be performed on both the upper and lower lids to correct signs of aging, such as sagging skin and fat build up. Blepharoplasty is the gold standard for rejuvenating the eyes, and it is one of Dr. Devgan’s favorite and most frequently performed operations.
An ideal result can be obtained in just 6 weeks after upper & lower eyelid blepharoplasty. To combat hollowing of the eyes, blepharoplasty can be combined with autologous fat transfer. Bruising is expected within the first week post-operation. It is important to understand that surgery does involve some degree of recovery and bruising is expected within the first 1-2 weeks of surgery. Bruises can be covered with makeup for those who return to work at 1 week. By 1 month, bruising has subsided, with no more hooded upper lid skin or undereye hollows.
Often patient’s wish to look more alert but keep their natural features. Blepharoplasty correct periorbital aging, as well as asymmetry and ptosis. A double upper eyelid blepharoplasty procedure typical will take approximately 30 minutes and can be done with local numbing medicine only (no general anesthesia).
Dr. Devgan performs blepharoplasty on both male and female patients. Concerns for men have included wanting to be alert without looking different or overly feminine. She will use her signature four lid blepharoplasty with considerations of each patient’s ultimate goals and facial anatomy to ensure patients look refreshed without creating a pulled or stretched appearance.
