Many times patients complain about their upper eyelids drooping into their field of vision. Sometimes insurance companies recognize this as a medical condition to be corrected if it interferes with visual activities. Women hate saggy eyelids because it messes up eye makeup. The cure is simple, comfortable and gives a beautiful transformation!
What is Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty)?
Cosmetic surgeons perform eyelid surgery to correct drooping of the eyelids (upper and lower) caused by aging or by other conditions. Collagen acts as a support structure to skin and it is this tissue, which thins with age.
Cosmetic surgery removes excess tissue to correct this condition. Laser treatment also works with cosmetic surgery to thicken collagen and to enhance healing of surgical incisions.
How long does the surgery take?
Surgery time takes between one to two hours depending on how much needs to be corrected. We have several strategies to keep you comfortable during that time. You can have full anesthesia or we have options involving medication and local blocks.
Will there be scars?
Incision lines on the upper eyelid hide nicely in the natural eyelid. Lower lids have hidden incision lines because they are made behind the lower eyelid. The good thing is that all incision lines are treated with laser treatment post operatively. Laser treatment flattens scars and removes post surgical redness. It’s a win-win situation.
How long does recovery take?
Recovery time is usually about one week. Any discomfort you encounter is easily controlled with Ibuprofen or prescription pain pills if necessary.
