Upper Eyelid Surgery - Bryn Mawr, PA

At 33 years of age, I had never been to an eye...

At 33 years of age, I had never been to an eye doctor to have my eyes checked. When I finally decided to do this, I asked the doctor about my hooded eyelids. She said, “Whatever you do, don’t go to a plastic surgeon for this, go to an ophthalmologist,” and she recommended Dr. Lee. When I went in for my consultation, I was immediately impressed. I felt very comfortable and “at home” in the office. Everyone was welcoming and cheerful. Dr. Lee and his staff were also knowledgeable and informative, answering all of my questions and responding to any of my concerns. Needless to say, I choose Dr. Lee for my upper eyelid surgery. Basically, he was going to remove the extra skin on my eyelids to make my face appear brighter and more youthful. After scheduling my appointment, I was told what prescriptions I needed to fill beforehand, Tylenol with Codeine, (which I ended up not filling because I never liked taking it in the past. He said Extra Strength Tylenol would be fine) and an antibiotic ointment. When I came in for my surgery, they gave me two additional pills to help ease anxiety and help me relax. The surgery was over before I knew it. I felt like I was in a light sleep the entire time and didn’t feel a thing. I also had Kybella done that day as well, right when he finished my eyelid surgery. Once home, I slept and rested for the rest of the day and the next day. I had to apply ice every hour, 20 minutes for each eye. I also applied the appointment morning and night. I went back to work after 5 days, but there was still some swelling at that time. After 9 days, I returned to the office to remove the sutures. This was one of the strangest feelings, but I was happy to have them removed. At that appointment, I was told to switch to a warm compress instead of ice. I had 2 more follow up appointments to make sure everything was healing and progressing as it should. I am currently using SkinMedica to help reduce the redness as well. I couldn’t be happier with the results! I feel less self-conscience about my profile, and I feel confident when I am not wearing eye make-up. Throughout the entire process, I have felt that I could call the office at any time with questions, and was confident I would hear a pleasant voice on the other end. I will continue to work with Dr. Lee and his staff for any future needs!
