Aging, sun exposure and some medical conditions can cause eyelids to droop and skin to become loose. This can make you look older than you feel, and even affect your vision. Plastic surgery to correct this condition is called blepharoplasty.
For the upper eyelid procedure, Dr. Marshall makes an incision along the natural crease on your eyelid to conceal the scar. He then removes excess skin, tightens muscles and re-positions fat deposits to restore a natural, more youthful appearance to your eye. This procedure can usually be performed in Dr. Marshall's Asheville office with light sedation and local anesthetic.
Lower eyelid surgery involves either an incision just below the lower lashes or on the inside of the lower eyelid, to hide the scar. As with the upper eyelid procedure, excess skin is removed and fat can be re-positioned or removed. An alternative lower eyelid procedure uses a transconjunctival incision, which is made inside the lower eyelid. With this method, excess fat can be removed or redistributed without removing any skin.
Dr. Marshall will give you instructions for how to care for your eyes after your surgery. You can use cold compresses to relieve swelling, and lubricating ointment can help if your eyes feel dry or irritated. Postoperative pain is minimal, and for most people, full recovery from eyelid surgery takes about two weeks.
This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
