Dr. Truong Was great and I couldn't ask for a better doctor! He answered every question that I had. I did my homework for a whole year before going through with the surgery. I recommend that you trust no other Dr with this type of surgery because looks matter. And one little mistake can be the difference. I'm glad that I chose wisely. Thanks again to Dr. Truong!
What really sets Dr. Truong apart is that his former patients include those within the medical profession who have personally seen his techniques in the operating room. Dr. Truong has performed cosmetic procedures for nurses and operating room technicians who have worked with many of the area’s top surgeons. As Dr. Truong says, seeing this level of trust from his colleagues is “the greatest compliment a surgeon can get!"

Finances shouldn’t have to be the only consideration when it comes to looking your best. Our practice offers financing options like CareCredit to help ensure that your eyelid lift is even more affordable.
Dr. Truong offers a thorough and comprehensive consultation where you can get the details on all of your cosmetic options. He’ll take the time to answer each and every one of your questions.
The eyes are the windows to the soul, so premature aging around the eye area can have the unwanted effect of making you look older than you feel on the inside. Eyelid surgery can correct droopiness in the upper lids, eliminate puffiness and bags from below the eyes, and leave you looking more alert and refreshed.
During your consultation, Dr. Truong will talk more with you about what you hope to achieve with blepharoplasty. Depending on your personal goals, he may recommend including additional procedures at the same time, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to help minimize the appearance of crow’s feet.
Dr. Truong will explain in detail about the steps he’ll follow during surgery, and give you further information on what to expect before, during and after your eyelid lift.
The time scheduled for your blepharoplasty will vary somewhat depending on whether Dr. Truong is performing upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery or both. Upper blepharoplasty on its own typically takes about an hour, and is normally performed under local anesthesia.
During surgery, Dr. Truong takes care to hide incisions in the natural eyelid crease or lash line for minimal, discreet scar placement. Through these incisions, excess fatty deposits are removed and skin is tightened for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
You may feel some discomfort the first few days after your blepharoplasty, which may be accompanied by bruising and swelling. These can be alleviated with ice packs and by sleeping with your head elevated initially. It’s also a good idea to avoid activities that cause eyes to work too hard, such as reading or watching TV. Your final results should be visible as healing progresses, leaving you looking more alert, revitalized and youthful.
