What Is Eyelid Surgery or Blepharoplasty?
Individuals who constantly battle droopy, puffy, or fatigued eyes may benefit from eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty. This procedure can create a more balanced, alert appearance; in some cases, it can even improve vision by raising droopy eyelids. This technique cannot lift the eyebrows, soften wrinkles, or erase dark circles, but eyelid surgery can be combined with other methods such as a facelift or Botox® treatment to achieve the desired results.
How Is Eyelid Surgery Performed?
During eyelid surgery, the upper, lower, or both eyelids may be altered according to your goals. A tiny, discreet incision permits the removal or relocation of skin and fat in the eye area. If needed, the underlying muscles and tendons can be modified or reconstructed as well. If the eyelid is drooping, the tissues will be raised and pulled taut to reduce and prevent impairment of vision. This outpatient procedure can create long-lasting results that make clients look as young, bright-eyed, and confident as they feel.
What Can I Expect During Recovery from Eyelid Surgery?
The total recovery time varies greatly among patients. Initially, you may notice a tight feeling around the eyes, accompanied by mild discomfort, bruising, or swelling and you will need to keep your head elevated whenever possible. Your vision may be a bit blurry and your eyes might be sensitive to light. After a week or so, these symptoms should greatly diminish, and you may apply makeup to conceal any remaining discoloration. You may also resume most normal activities at this time.
