What Exactly Is An Eyelid Lift?
Eyelid lift surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a popular and effective procedure that rejuvenates the eye area, creating a younger and more alert expression. Because the procedure is surprisingly versatile, both women and men can seek blepharoplasty for an assortment of reasons. The procedure can remove a double eyelid or improve under-eye bags and fatty deposits that cause a “puffy” appearance. Blepharoplasty can also repair damage to the eyelid caused by an injury, illness or congenital eyelid issues. Other patients may seek eyelid surgery to eliminate wrinkles by tightening up any loose, saggy skin around the eyes.
About The Eyelid Lift Procedure
Eyelid surgery can vary depending on whether the patient is having the upper eyelids done, the lower eyelids done, or both. On surgery day, patients should arrange for transportation to and from the clinic and for someone to stay overnight with them.
Anesthesia will be provided via general anesthesia, and the length of the procedure will depend on the overall scope. The doctor may use surgical tape, sutures, or adhesives to close the incision points. You can ask your doctor in advance what methodology he expects will work best for you.
Eyelid Lift/Blepharoplasty Recovery
Immediately after eyelid surgery, you will experience have swelling and bruising around the eyes. Patients may experience mild side effects including pain and discomfort, dry eyes or itching near the incisions as they heal. Noticeable discomfort or swelling should subside within 48 hours, and pain can be controlled with prescribed medication. Patients should keep the head elevated as much as possible for several days to help keep swelling down.
After one to two weeks, patients can gradually resume normal activities like office work and light household chores. However, heavy lifting, exercise and other strenuous activities should be postponed for several more weeks. You’ll begin to see preliminary results from eyelid surgery in six to eight weeks, but final results won’t appear until after six months.
