Reveert's public relations personnel, Lori Payne, answered all my questions and concerns, arrange all my appointments as well as follow up very quickly to accommodate my schedule. Dr. Alejandro was very professional, extremely knowledgable and very personable. My results for the arm lift perfectly matched my vision. I received stellar service throughout the entire process, including hospital staff, and the entire process took minimal amount of time. I strongly recommend Reveert, Dr. Alejandro and the location of my hospital stay to anyone considering surgery

Superb! Dr. Alejandro, Lori the coordinator, nurses and the entire staff were outstanding. They answered all questions professionally, clearly, patiently and promptly about the surgery and post-op expectations. They offered the latest approved surgical techniques. The follow-up care was excellent. Dr. Alejandro's credentials are sterling. The hospital is state-of-the art in Zapópan near Guadalajara. It can hold its own with the finest in any country. It is also aesthetically pleasing. Patient care is superb. I researched carefully, as you should, where to have my plastic surgery performed. REEVERT was an excellent choice all round. Do not fear coming to REVEERT in Guadalajara in any way. The city and the colonial gem, Tlaquepaque, nearby are safe, beautiful, filled with cultural activities and fine cuisine. The Mexican people are universally kind and cordial. I recommend that you stay fairly near to the hospital in any number of delightful places in Mexico should there be any minor glitches. Combining your healing process with a pleasant vacation will take your mind off things. Lori is a goldmine of information on what you might enjoy. Am I glad I chose REEVERT to get rid of my "turkey wattle?" Absolutely. The results look terrific.

San Javier Hospital - Reveert Verified

Husband and wife physician team, trained extensively in reconstructive and plastic surgery in New York at the Manhattan ENT Hospital as well as Duke University has provided them with exposure to North American patients which is now an important factor in their daily work.

Dr. Piccard-Ami gave me thorough information, as well as complete follow-up care. I, being a gastric-bypass patient, prior to coming to see him, as well as botched procedures prior, was relieved by my results following reconstructive breast augmentation and a tummy tuck to remove scarring from previous intestinal exploratory surgery and twice botched breast augmentation. I was relieved to find a competent and professional who has honed his craft. Dr. Piccard-Ami's work was cut out for him, as I was a difficult case, he confidently and skillfully restored my self confidence. My gratitude thus far is immesurable. You're the best doc, thank you so much! When, I have more money.... my thighs are next!!!

Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) Overview

An eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes excess skin, fat and loose muscles from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelids have a very strong influence on a person’s face and particularly their expression. With an eyelid lift, you can enhance your expression and improve your overall appearance.

 

The signs of aging begin around the eyes. An eyelid lift targets drooping eyelids which are the result of years of hard work and stress. These factors can also contribute to the deeply hanging bags under the lower eyelid. The eyelid lift procedure corrects these unwanted testaments of age.

 

Blepharoplasty can also enhance your vision if your eyelids are drooping excessively. Your true age doesn’t have to be revealed from your eyes. Recovering from an eyelid lift will shield minimal discomfort if you follow the surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully.

 

An eyelid lift can also be a medical solution to ptosis. Ptosis can be the result of abnormal muscle reactions, stroke, a brain tumor or diabetes. Eyelid lift surgery can correct drooping eyelids from such conditions. The cost of an eyelid lift might be covered partially or fully by your insurance company if it is for medical reasons.

 

An eyelid lift can be carried out in conjunction with other facial procedures such as facelift or nose surgery. Book yourself a consultation with a plastic surgeon so you can discuss if you are a good candidate for an eyelid lift. During this consultation he or she will also explain the eyelid lift risks and side effects so you are aware of them.

 

The old and tired appearance of your eyes does not need to be permanent. An eyelid lift can rejuvenate your face and make you feel great about the way you look.

 

A Good Candidate for Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

An eyelid lift is a solution for people wanting to get rid of visible stress and aging that begin to show around their eyes. Most people wanting to correct for drooping eyelids are good candidates for an eyelid lift but blepharoplasty is not for everyone.

 

Your plastic surgeon will talk to you about your reasons for surgery and your desired outcome as well as examine your natural facial features to determine if you are a good candidate for an eyelid lift.

 

Age is not a major factor when being considered for the eyelid lift procedure. However, most candidates are between 40 and 50 years of age. These patients have upper eyelids that may have begun to sag and lower eyelids that appear as bags under the eyes. Their hanging upper eyelids may make them look constantly tired or angry.

 

Drooping eyelids is a common sign of aging and an eyelid lift is mostly designed for older patients wanting to refresh their eye area. It can also be a solution for people in their 20s and 30s who suffer from hereditary drooping eyelids.

 

Regardless of the age, good candidates for eyelid lift surgery understand and accept the risks and side effects of an eyelid lift. While preparing for your eyelid lift you may realize that you are also a good candidate for other facial surgeries such as a facelift or nose surgery.

 

It is important for patients to communicate exactly what they wish to accomplish through their eyelid lift. For example, an eyelid lifts will not target wrinkles. It can help reduce the size and depth of wrinkles but a facelift or brow lift is better designed to combat deep wrinkles.

 

A good candidate for an eyelid lift needs to be emotionally and physically healthy. Patients will not be considered for surgery if certain diseases such as high blood pressure, hypothyroidism or glaucoma exist.

 

Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty) Procedure

An eyelid lift offers men and women the chance to eliminate unwanted signs of aging that have begun to appear around their eyes.

 

The eyelid lift procedure is usually performed under a local anesthesia but some surgeons may also supply sedatives to calm and relax patients. Belpharoplasty is rarely carried out under general anesthesia.

 

The surgeon makes incisions along the natural creases or folds of the eyelid so that the scar won’t be visible. Occasionally, the surgeon will make the incisions on the inside of the eyelid which results in no scarring. The surgeon removes excess fat through the incisions and cuts away excess skin.

 

Loose eyelid muscles will also be tightened during the eyelid lift procedure in order to help smooth the skin and decrease wrinkles. The eyes will be bandaged after surgery and you will be taken to a recovery room where to be monitored for a few hours. Eyelid lift surgery is normally an outpatient procedure so you will not have to stay overnight in hospital.

 

The most important thing to do now is focus on healing during your eyelid lift recovery!

 

Average Duration of Eyelid Lift Surgery: 1-3 three hours, depending on the amount of work involved. If you are having any other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift at the same time as your blepharoplasty, then the surgery time will be longer.
