Eyelid surgery from surgeon in beverly hills
When patients are interested in having blepharoplasty done to improve the appearance of their eyes, they may want to learn about what they can expect for recovery from eyelid surgery. Dr. Dennis Dass, MD is a board certified plastic surgeon in the Beverly Hills area who encourages patients to take the time to fully understand the procedure and all that is involved during and after it for healing and recovery.

Recovery from eyelid surgery can take up to two weeks, depending on many factors. Patients are often encouraged to take this time off work and activities to facilitate faster healing and reduce the likelihood of complications such as infection. The normal time is 8-12 days, but this can be determined with follow-up appointments at the doctor’s office to ensure healing is occurring as expected and patients are able to return to work. Patients should also take it easy and avoid strenuous activities such as exercise. Dr. Dennis Dass, MD will work closely with patients to help them develop a routine that will not affect the healing of their eyelids and ensure they avoid problems that may arise with poor care and attention to the surgical area.

During the healing process, many patients will experience bruising and swelling. This is normal and may be controlled by ice on the area. Mild discomfort may also occur and it can be handled with prescription pain medications while patients are recovering. Patients are welcome to speak with Dr. Dennis Dass, MD to discuss what they can expect during the healing process and help combat them with appropriate treatments and medications as necessary.

Dr. Dennis Dass, MD and his team encourage patients to take the time and learn about the ways in which they can enhance their appearance. We offer a myriad of plastic surgeries that can be used for body contouring, facial enhancement, and other advantages.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
