Blepharoplasty

As we all know, gravity and aging can cause “sagging” of eyelid skin.  This can become a major problem with vision, especially in the upper and lateral visual fields, when skin droops over the upper eyelids.   Puffiness and “bags” under eyes can also lead to a tired or sleep deprived appearance.  Your doctor can be treat these areas by  making incredibly fine incisions in the natural lines and creases of the eyelids. With this approach,  excess skin and fat can be removed to lead to a more youthful and rested appearance.  Also, the removal of redundant skin from the upper eyelid will usually greatly improve vision.  Many patients actually feel like a “curtain” has been raised above their eyes allowing for better vision.  For your safety and comfort, these procedures can usually be performed in the convenience of our outpatient surgery center under IV anesthesia.

Your medical insurance may pay for part of the cost of surgery if your vision is impaired by the excess skin.  A simple visual field test can be performed by your eye doctor and will be submitted along with current photographs taken in our office.  Because all insurances are different, we recommend you check with your carrier to determine your coverage.

Patient Review from Elizabeth F

I went in to see Dr. Allen for a tooth extraction and I cannot emphasize enough how great of an experience it was (considering the reason I was there). From the moment I walked in the door until the moment I left, I was blown away by the friendliness and level of professionalism the staff showed me. I honestly don't have a single negative thing to say. Dr. Allen is an extremely skilled and competent doctor. He made the procedure smooth, quick, and painless. The level of care I received far exceeded my expectations. I have no hesitations recommending West Georgia Oral and Facial Surgery to anyone and everyone.

Patient Review from Pauline C

I cannot express my appreciation for Dr. Allen & all the staff at West GA Oral Surgery. They understood my husbands health limitations & were very courteous/helpful to him through the different procedures he had. I believe with the bone grafting, my spouse went through 3 surgeries. After the very 1st visit, he had no worries what so ever as to going back for more surgery. He knew he was in the best care!!!!! Thank you all for all your help.

Patient Review from Candy C

If I could give Dr Z and his amazing staff 10 stars, I would. I was nervous as a cat when I walked in for my appointment, but everyone, from the check in tech to Dr Z’s awesome assistants was very comforting. One was placing a mask on my face, one placed an IV in my arm for that medicine from the gods, and one was placing a blanket on me because I was cold. I opted to be put under, and am so glad I did. All I remember after they placed the IV was asking whether I should begin counting down from 100. Two seconds later, I was out. Woke up about 45 minutes later asking “Is it over?” It was. I would highly recommend Columbus Oral Surgery. They are top notch and awesome!

Patient Review from Kim G

Dr. Allen, & his entire staff are top notch quality professionals. You’ll receive exceptional care, beginning to end. I realize a person can be scared or a bit apprehensive when getting oral surgery. Dr. Allen has a way with people; a way of putting your mind at ease. B4 u no it, your in the chair, out like a light (the best sleep btw) & awake by the time you’ve ever had a chance to worry or think about being nervous to begin with. The great thing about West Ga/Dr. Allen is, I’ve never had to worry about what type of care I’ll receive, or if Id be just another number. HE IS VERY GOOD, in my opinion the best at what he does. He really is the most down to earth doc I’ve ever met.
