For some people, the thought of cosmetic surgery is overwhelming. They want to do something surgical to rejuvenate their appearance but the thought of a complete facelift is not appealing. Or perhaps they are in their early forties and a full facial rejuvenation is not necessary. For those individuals, a great option might be upper eyelid surgery. Chicago-based, board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Geroulis explains why, “The eyes are usually the first area of the face that show one’s age. The skin is very thin and delicate meaning that as the skin’s elasticity decreases and gravity takes its toll, the excess skin on the upper eyelid begins to droop and sag. These changes cause men and women to look much older than they actually are.”

This can all be fixed in a 45 minute surgical procedure and a week or two of recovery time.

The excess skin is gently and carefully removed during upper eyelid surgery. Chicago-surgeon Dr. Geroulis, a highly experienced surgeon and accomplished sculptor, artfully removes tiny amounts of skin and places the stitches surreptitiously along the crease of the eyelid. This procedure is also known more technically as an upper blepharoplasty procedure. Chicago surgeon Dr. Geroulis emphasizes how vital it is to remove just the right amount of tissue, “If too much skin is removed, the result is obvious and looks pulled. Additionally, each eye must look balanced, as well.”

This is a procedure that can be performed on anyone from age 35 to age 80. It all depends on how each individual ages-genetics and lifestyle choices play a large part. For the best and most natural results, it is very important that a surgeon with extreme precision and years of experience performs the upper blepharoplasty procedure. Chicago-surgeon Dr. Geroulis has been operating for over thirty years and has fine-tuned and perfected his style of upper eyelid surgery. Chicago has so many excellent hospital and surgeons, but it is always a good idea to make sure that the surgeon you select is experienced and highly regarded.

The first step towards looking younger in a mere hour is scheduling a consultation appointment to learn more about an upper blepharoplasty procedure. Chicago, Northfield and Hoffman Estates are the office locations where Dr. Geroulis meets with patients for consultation appointments. During these appointments, he provides a full and highly detailed facial analysis to determine exactly which procedure-or series of procedures-is ideal for you. Dr. Geroulis is a clinical professor of surgery at University of Chicago Medicine, meaning he is a surgeon who teaches future surgeons.
