Eyelid surgery from the Philadelphia area’s Dr. Timothy Greco is an ideal way to rejuvenate an aging look. Lifting sagging and drooping upper lids can create a more awake and alert appearance, while removing sagging pouches below the eye can give the face a more youthful and rejuvenated look.
Patients who want to envision what a blepharoplasty can do for them—before deciding on the surgery—have two options at Dr. Greco’s practice.
First, Dr. Greco maintains an extensive photo gallery, available online, revealing the results of dozens of eyelid surgery patients. Men and women considering blepharoplasty can browse the images of real patients to get a general idea of what Dr. Greco can accomplish. This can give people an even better idea of how the results of the surgery may generally look on their own eyelids.
The before-and-after photos also show the results of eyelid surgery combined with other procedures and treatments, such as a facelift or laser skin resurfacing.
Second, Dr. Greco can use video imaging to create a realistic portrayal of what a specific patient could look like after the procedure. It can give patients the most definitive “preview” possible of what a lifted eyelid or reduce bags would do for the look of someone’s face.
In some cases, Dr. Greco and a blepharoplasty candidate decide to move forward with the surgery after a video imaging session. In other cases, they decide to explore a different approach in order to better deliver the results a patient is seeking.
No matter the ultimate decision, the goal is for every patient to approach their procedure or treatment with confidence. Feeling better about a decision prior to the surgery can actually lead to a better outcome, as patients know what to expect from their results and are less stressed. A more relaxed recovery can lead to shorter down time and improved healing.
