Why Consider Ethnic Eyelid Surgery?
Some men and women of certain ethnic and racial backgrounds seek a more open, alert appearance of the eyes, while still maintaining the natural facial structure of their ethnic heritage. Ethnic eyelid surgery can help to improve various features of the eye structure, including:
- Opening the eye while maintaining its natural shape
- Reducing sagging or puffy skin around the eyes
- Improving impaired vision that may result from the unique eye structure of some ethnic groups
If any of these issues are a concern, you could be a good candidate for ethnic eyelid surgery. Dr. Basu will work with you individually to design a surgical plan that will deliver the results you desire.
How Much Does Ethnic Eyelid Surgery Cost?
The cost of ethnic eyelid surgery in Houston varies depending on the surgeon and practice. Your total costs will include facility fees, the cost of anesthesia and your pre-op and post-op appointments.
Your Ethnic Eyelid Surgery Options
During your eyelid surgery consultation, Dr. Basu will discuss your concerns with you and explain the details of ethnic eyelid lift cosmetic surgery. He will take the time to understand the outcome that you want and help you decide whether this procedure is right for you.
There are many options to consider before pursuing ethnic eyelid surgery, including whether another facial procedure, such as facelift surgery, should be performed at the same time. Dr. Basu will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best suits your needs to create the results that you hope for.
Your Ethnic Eyelid Surgery Procedure
Dr. Basu will explain your options and the details of your ethnic eyelid surgery and recovery prior to surgery. During your procedure, Dr. Basu will sculpt the soft tissue of the upper eyelid to create the desired look and reduce any vision impairment that may be associated with the natural structure of the eyes.
Your Recovery & Results
After your ethnic eyelid surgery, some swelling, redness or bruising may occur, but these symptoms typically diminish on their own within 1 to 2 weeks. Giving your eyes plenty of rest and allowing your body enough time to heal can help ensure a safe recovery and smooth, natural-looking results.
