Eyelid Surgery FAQ

Here are some of our most asked questions. If you don't see yours on the list, be sure to call us and we'd be happy to answer it.

Am I a good candidate for cosmetic eyelid surgery?
The best way to tell is for you to have a thorough evaluation of your eyes as well as your appearance. Dr. Haas is one of Orlando’s most experienced oculoplastic surgeons. His evaluation is an essential step in assessing that surgery is appropriate.
Will cosmetic eyelid surgery improve my looks?
Yes. During surgery, Dr. Haas removes the excess fat and skin from your eyelids giving you a more youthful look. We don’t stop the aging process, but his customized approach will go far in resetting the clock!
Is the surgery safe?
Facial plastic surgery is very safe and effective. Dr. Haas does his procedures at a certified outpatient surgery center with an outstanding record of patient safety.
How long is recovery?
80% of our patients can expect to be presentable with makeup after 1 work week or 9 days. Tailored to minimize downtime, Dr. Haas practices a very gentle technique using adjuncts such as Arnica and Vitamin K creams that are also known to reduce bruising.
What kind of results should I expect?
You should expect to have a more youthful, refreshed version of you, and not someone else! Men will look more youthful and relaxed but not feminized as is too often seen after celebrity plastic surgery.
