Blepharoplasty, better known as upper eyelid surgery, is one of the most commonly performed facial plastic procedures. The aging process of the face can make the upper eyelids droop. This creates a tired or aged look. The removal of small amounts of skin from the upper lids can restore a more youthful appearance and refreshed look. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis in our ambulatory surgery center.
How is Blepharoplasty performed?
Your surgeon will mark amd measure the amount of tissue to be removed. Your eyes and lids will then be numbed and prepped for eyelid surgery. The measured amount of tissue will be excised, and then the incision will be sewn back together. The surgery takes about 1 hour.
You will be taken to the recovery area and icepacks placed on your eyes. You will be given an antibiotic ointment to use during the healing process. Your eyelids will be swollen for a few days, and you may have bruising for a few weeks.
Your results will astound you as you look and feel more rested and are able to see much better in just a matter of days!
