Eyelid Surgery Des Moines

Privacy and education are important to people, especially when it comes to your face. That is why Dr. David Robbins has created a unique cosmetic surgery practice in Iowa where you can experience the education of a quadruple board certified plastic surgeon (Dr. David Robbins) and a private operating room at the office of Des Moines Plastic Surgery™. There is no longer a need to visit a hospital or surgery center to have eyelid surgery. We have it all in one convenient location!

Dr. Robbins feels experience and education are what set him apart from other surgeons. He is the only plastic surgeon in Iowa with 4 board certifications. He also owns the only practice in Iowa which focuses exclusively on cosmetic surgery. Dr. Robbins is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, and the American Board of Laser Surgery. No other doctor in Iowa holds these certifications. No other practice in Iowa can provide the wide array of surgical and nonsurgical solutions for their patients.

Please call our office for a complimentary cosmetic consultation with Dr. Robbins and his highly qualified staff at 515-221-9999 so we can answer any questions you may have and help you through your journey to look and feel your best.

If you are looking for a non-surgical solution for sagging skin around the lower eyes, we offer a skin tightening procedure called Exilis. Exilis works on any area of the face. The entire face and neck can be treated at one time for an overall skin tightening effect. Under eye areas can be treated alone to help reduce under eye skin laxity and bags under the eyes. The neck and jowls are the most common face area treated. The results are truly amazing for a non-surgical, non-invasive procedure. To learn more about this amazing non-surgical treatment, please visit our Skin Tightening page.

When to Consider Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can be customized to address your specific areas of concern. You may be a good candidate if you:

  • Have bags and puffiness around your eyes
  • Have loose skin, wrinkles or fine lines around your eyes
  • Have discoloration or dark circles under your eyes

Eyelid surgery is ideal for patients with eyes that appear chronically sad, tired or fatigued. As a general rule, the best candidates are in good health and possess realistic expectations. Though most of our patients are 35 years of age or older, surgery can be performed on adults of all ages. The best way to find out if surgery is right for you is to schedule a cosmetic consultation with Dr. David Robbins. During your cosmetic consultation you will be able to ask questions, feel comfortable with Dr. Robbins and his staff and talk about your goals for facial rejuvenation.

FAQs

  • What happens during eyelid surgery?

    At Des Moines Plastic Surgery™, your surgery and all your appointments are conveniently located at our office in West Des Moines, Iowa. We have a fully accredited operating room located at our office which provides privacy and continuity of care. Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure that requires general anesthesia or intravenous sedation or in some circumstances, local anesthesia alone. Dr. Robbins will make precise incisions just below your lower lashes (for lower eyelid surgery) and/or in the natural folds of your upper lids (for upper eyelid surgery).

    Through these incisions, Dr. Robbins will be able to remove excess skin and fat. Following surgery, all incisions will be secured with small sutures for minimal scarring.

  • Will I need to take time off from work?

    Yes. The time necessary for your recovery will ultimately depend on your body’s natural healing abilities, but most patients feel comfortable resuming work and light physical activities within 10 days. When creating a schedule for your time off from work, it’s important to note that noticeable swelling and bruising may persist for 1 to 2 weeks.

  • What is the recovery like after eyelid surgery?

    It’s normal to experience some soreness and tightness around your eyes for the first few days. This discomfort can be controlled using a combination of prescription pain medication and cold compresses.

    Incisions made during upper and lower eyelid surgery are concealed within the natural contours of your eyelids. Some scarring may be visible following surgery, but this will gradually fade and flatten over the course of a few months.

  • What are the risks of eyelid surgery?

    Like all surgical procedures, eyelid surgery does carry risks. We will discuss these risks with you in our office during your consultation and/or pre-op appointment. Some risks may include adverse reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, infection, asymmetry or undesirable results.

After having children, your body can change, including your breasts. Ashley wanted more fullness after breastfeeding her children, so she chose to have breast augmentation.

Together with her plastic surgeon, they decided the Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive breast implant would give her the fullness on top that she was missing.

It’s important to have choices! But too many choices can start to feel overwhelming. Remembering these 4 S’s can help guide your decision and discussion with your plastic surgeon:

1) Silicone vs Saline
2) Size
3) Surgical Incision
4) Selection
...

Real Women. Real Results.
Jenn @where_is_jenn decided to have a breast augmentation when she was in her twenties. But after 7 years, she wasn’t satisfied with the aesthetic results so she opted to have a breast revision. This time she did her research to get the fit that was just right for her. Jenn chose Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive “enhanced fullness” breast implants for a fuller look with more roundness on top.
...

Dessiree always felt flat chested growing up. She worried about how her breasts would look in different outfits and didn’t feel comfortable without a push-up bra.

After a lot of consideration, she found a plastic surgeon who recommended Natrelle INSPIRA® Cohesive Breast Implants for the look she wanted.

Now Dessiree considers her choice to get breast augmentation “one of the best decisions” she’s ever made.

What about you? If her before picture looks like your body shape and her after picture looks like the results you want, snap a pic and share it with during your consultation.
