Blepharoplasty + A Quick Recovery = Happy Holidays for You
With Christmas and the New Year fast approaching, we’ve been seeing a different kind of holiday shopping at About Face. Our reception desk is fielding lots of questions from men and women shopping for a mini-procedure that offers maximum benefits for facial rejuvenation. They ask:
“Dr Marcells, what can I do to look my best
at family gatherings and in holiday photos?”
Here’s what I tell them…
5 Factors to Guide You to Your Best Holiday Makeover Procedure
My answer to the question above varies from patient to patient. Whether I recommend a surgical or non-surgical approach to facial rejuvenation depends on factors such as a patient’s
- Past cosmetic enhancement procedures
- Aesthetic goals
- Ability to devote time to recovery
My goal is always to accomplish more with less. One procedure that I frequently point to is blepharoplasty, also known as upper eyelid surgery. It’s a relatively simple procedure that requires a modest recovery. It makes tired eyes come alive again and can lift your entire facial appearance.
5 Big Blepharoplasty Benefits with Dr George Marcells
You’ve undoubtedly heard this phrase, or perhaps even said it yourself when you catch a look at yourself in the mirror:
I’m tired of looking tired!
Drooping lids can make you appear sleepy or disinterested, which can easily create the wrong impression in business and romantic situations! Drooping lids can also create vision problems, interfering with your ability to see clearly.
During upper eyelid blepharoplasty, I make carefully placed incisions into the natural folds leading outwards from the eye. This approach allows me to
- Remove excess fat
- Tighten loose kin
- Firm up muscles
- Reduce wrinkles
These physical improvements help my patients feel more confident and self-assured. Instead of running from selfies and family photos, they are eager to be at the centre of the picture-snapping action.
“Dr Marcells, How Much Does Blepharoplasty Cost?”
Upper and lower eyelid surgery for facial rejuvenation are two of the most popular procedures in Australia. Costs range from $3000 to $6000 (AUD) depending on the complexity of the surgery.
When we perform blepharoplasty at About Face, we quote an all-inclusive fee that covers:
