Concerns Addressed By Eyelid Surgery
Through eyelid surgery, we try to correct loose skin on the upper and lower eyelids, as well as excess fat around the eye. Loose skin on the upper lid may interfere with smooth makeup application, fill the space above the eyelid, hang down covering much of the eyelid, or make one look tired or inattentive. Skin on the lower eyelid may drape loosely below the eye or accentuate texture and expression lines. Fat pads may cause the bags under the eye and may protrude above the upper lid as well.
What to Expect During the Procedure
The patient will be under local or general anesthesia during this out-patient procedure, which lasts between one and three hours depending on the extent of the procedure. Typical recovery supplies are provided to you. The pain is usually mild and easily controlled. Specialized post-operative massage techniques and makeup advice are usually provided by our Skin Care Specialist. Light activities can be resumed in four to seven days. The amount of discoloration in the treatment area varies, but usually resolves in one to three weeks.
Eyelid surgery can help you look younger and help with everyday tasks such as applying makeup. The procedure is relatively short and has a short recovery time compared to other surgical treatments.
Your Expected Results
The risks associated with the procedure are detailed in writing and discussed with you prior to surgery. Results last for years. Patients occasionally choose to maintain results by repeating the procedure again within seven to fifteen years.
