In his 25+ years of experience Dr. Roger J. Oldham has treated men and women in the Bethesda area, performing facial rejuvenation plastic surgery procedures for patients who are unhappy with the signs of aging in their eyes. Dr. Oldham is a board certified Bethesda plastic surgeon who specializes in plastic surgery of the face, including blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery). Dr. Oldham is quite literally the “Best Plastic Surgeon in Bethesda,” as voted by Bethesda Magazine. He was also voted among Washington D.C.’s “Top Plastic Surgeons” in Washingtonian Magazine years running. Now that you have decided that alleviating the puffy or sagging skin around your eyes is a priority for you, decide to call Dr. Oldham to schedule your personal consultation where he will provide full disclosure about blepharoplasty (eyelid lift surgery).
Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift or eyelid surgery) with Dr. Oldham is performed by removing excess skin from either the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both sets of eyelids. Small inconspicuous incisions are made along the creases of the eyes which allows the doctor to access the trim sagging skin and retighten the affected area as he carefully sutures the delicate skin. The surgery lasts only 90 minutes for both upper and lower eyelids, and the recovery time is very limited compared to other plastic surgery procedures. Returning to work is up to you and your comfort with your appearance. Some patients experience bruising/swelling for 5 days, others for two weeks. Your personal healing process will determine some of these factors for you.
