What is a Blepharoplasty?
It is a surgical procedure that removes excess folds of skin in the upper lids and occasionally, pouches under the eyes (lower lids). Upper eyelid and/or brow suspension can improve your appearance, and your vision without the risk of that “deer in the headlights” overdone look! Our time proven techniques usually produce a very pleasing effect and gives you a more rested, youthful look. Your eyes are an expressive feature – one that people notice first – and your eyelids are part of that feature. The eyes are also the first of our features to show signs of age. As skin around the eye area ages, excess folds appear in the upper and lower lids. Blepharoplasty can have a dramatic effect on your eyelids, restoring a brighter, more rested appearance. Blepharoplasty is one of the most satisfying facial cosmetic procedures because recovery is brief while results are long lasting.
What is the recovery time?
You may experience swelling, bruising and dry eyes, which should subside after 7-10 days, prolonged swelling and bruising is typically age related. The final results of your eyelid surgery will become apparent after several weeks, leaving you with a more alert, refreshed appearance. Minimal visible scars can occur at the inside and outside extremes of the incision most hidden in the new eyelid crease. Dissolving stitches are used to minimize scarring and discomfort during healing.
