The immortal bard William Shakespeare once said that the eyes are the window to your soul. This sentiment can mean many things to different people. However, drooping eyelids and other cosmetic imperfections around the eyes can have a profound effect on the appearance of your face and your sense of self-image.

Here at the Coastal Plastic Surgery Center our plastic surgeon, Dr. Leon Goldstein, offers a wide range of cosmetic surgery services to people living in the areas surrounding Madison, Connecticut and Providence, Rhode Island. Men or women with puffy eyes, drooping eyelid or bags under their eyes can often find significant improvement through eyelid surgery.

This often requires local anesthesia or light sedation. Many patients choose to have both the upper and lower eyelids addressed in the same treatment session. Afterward, you will need to arrange to have someone drive you home.

The treatment process involves Dr. Goldstein making a careful incision in the eyelid. A small amount of fatty tissues and skin will then be excised and tightened.

It’s best to plan on taking a week off from work and other strenuous activity to allow your body to focus on healing post surgery. Dr. Goldstein and his staff will provide you with any other important aftercare instructions.

If you live in the areas surrounding Madison, Connecticut and Providence, Rhode Island, and you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your eyes, you should call 800.423.1728 to schedule an appointment at the Coastal Plastic Surgery Center.
