Tired of those bags under your eyes, or those heavy upper lids? Dr. O'Rourke has been performing cosmetic upper and lower blepharoplasties since 1990. This is a simple, safe procedure to tighten the upper and/or lower lids, and remove those bulges that can develop with time above and below the eyes. This is done in an out-patient surgical facility with IV sedation. The procedure on each eyelid takes about 20 minutes. Downtime is primarily the first 2 post-operative days, during which time, one must ice the area. Bruising usually lasts 10-14 days, but may last as long as 3-4 weeks. Dr. O'Rourke uses a technique that cauterizes small vessels during the procedure to decrease post-operative bruising and reduce recovery time.
