What is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a procedure used for rejuvenation to aid in removing excess skin that could droop from the upper eyelid, and also can be used to remove any of the puffy fat from beneath the eyes that would make you appear tired. An incision can be made on the outer skin or on the inside of the lower eyelid.
Who is an ideal candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
Given how sensitive your eyelids are, our team at Affordable Plastic Surgery advise that our patients should also receive a pre-operative assessment from an oculoplastic surgeon since there are some severe risks involved with getting an eyelid surgery. However, eyelid surgery is ideal for anyone looking to remove excess skin that is drooping over the eyelids.
Are there any risks to getting Eyelid Surgery?
With any surgery there is always a chance of risk. We do our best at Affordable Plastic Surgery to inform our patients of any risks that can occur when they undergo any surgical procedure. Some of the risks that could take place if you decide to get eyelid surgery is an inability to close the upper lids, discomfort and pain, blurry vision, lack of symmetry and eye muscle damage.
How long is the recovery period?
There is typically a shorter recovery time for an eyelid lift procedure. There will be some bruising and swelling but we advise the usage of a cool compress and you can see a reduce in it within the first 48 hours. Bandages are placed over the sites, and removed after several days. Most patients have reported returning to their normal activities in about 7 to 10 days after surgery.
