Blepharoplasty is a surgery done on the eyelids to improve issues of excess sagging skin. The surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. The surgery can be done for cosmetic reasons, or if you are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids.
What Blepharoplasty Can Fix
Blepharoplasty can address many signs of aging, including bags under the eyes, fatty deposits that can cause puffiness around the eyes, and excess skin and wrinkles on the lower eyelids. It can also eliminate excess skin on the upper eyelids, which can sometimes interfere with vision.
How it’s Done
Blepharoplasty is done with the help of a local anesthetic and is completed within an hour. An incision is made along the natural crease of the eyelid. Excess skin, muscle, or fat is then removed and the incision is closed with removable sutures, skin adhesives, or surgical tape. Scars are concealed by the natural shape of the eyelid and are not usually visible.
Recovering from Blepharoplasty
After being monitored for complications, you will be sent home later that day to recover at home where you will need to follow the care instructions provided to you. You can expect to resume normal daily activity after 10 days. In that time, you may experience some side effects such as blurred vision or watering eyes.
After Blepharoplasty, many display a more rested and youthful appearance, giving them more self-confidence. Upper and lower Blepharoplasty both have long-lasting results, so you can enjoy a younger looking you!
