Lower Bleph Surgery with Skin Tightening - Bryn Mawr, PA

I had a lower blepharoplasty performed by Dr. Lee...

I had a lower blepharoplasty performed by Dr. Lee at the age of 54. I noticed signs of lower eyelid puffiness when I was in my forties and always talked about getting them fixed, but never had the courage. I wear glasses daily and figured I could just hide my bags behind them, however, my bags got so bad that I became very self-conscious. I stopped wearing my contact lenses when I went out socially because people always commented on how tired I looked. When I finally made the decision to have the surgery, I consulted with 3 top plastic surgeons in the area. I chose Dr. Lee because he specializes in eyes and has performed so many surgeries. I also preferred his approach to skin tightening as I figured I would need a lot removed. During my initial consult, Dr. Lee was very informative and confident with a calm manner. He clearly explained my options and his procedural recommendations.
This was my first experience with plastic surgery so I was extremely nervous. Dr. Lee and his staff were very patient with me, answering all my questions and dispelling my fears. No surgery is a pleasant experience, however, the beautiful office and the kind staff made it comforting. The surgery was performed under a local anesthetic. I experienced brief pain on 4 occasions as Dr. Lee was removing the fat below the eyes. The staff described this sensation as pressure, but I would describe it as a brief, tolerable pain. I did experience double vision after surgery, but it went away by the evening. I had no bruising on my face at all. (I did take arnica before the surgery). While healing, I was able to contact Dr. Lee directly and he always promptly answered my questions. I must say my scars took longer to heal than I anticipated, and I couldn’t cover them with makeup until four weeks after surgery. I am currently 5 months post-surgery and one scar has healed completely. The other scar is still slightly raised but barely noticeable.
I am extremely happy with my results and I'm glad I made the decision to have the surgery performed by Dr. Lee. I would highly recommend Dr. Lee to anyone considering eyelid surgery. He is a highly skilled and experienced surgeon who truly cares about his patients.
