What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of the eyelids. The procedure can smooth wrinkles and lines around the eyes, decrease bags under the eyes, and improve the appearance of excess skin around the eyes. Eyelid surgery can be performed on lower eyelids, upper eyelids, or both.
Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
The benefits of surgery vary for each unique patient. However, some of the benefits may include:
- An increase in vision if your eyelid obstructed your eyesight
- A better appearance of the eyelids
- A reduction in bags under your eyes
- Smoothing wrinkles and lines around the eyes
- Increased self-confidence
The entire procedure takes approximately one to two hours to complete, depending on the severity of the case and whether or not both the upper and lower lids are being done.
Recovering from Eyelid Surgery
Common post-procedure symptoms include discomfort, swelling and bruising around the eyes. The overall recovery timeline takes approximately three weeks. Recovery and post-procedure effects vary by patient. Oral medication is likely to be prescribed to help manage discomfort. You can expect to be back to your normal routine within one week of surgery with mild limitations.
