- BEFORE & AFTER
Eyelid surgery is also known as blepharoplasty. It is a cosmetic procedure that can provide a more youthful appearance to the eyes. During the aging process, wrinkles, lines, and puffiness contribute to a tired or aged appearance. Blepharoplasty can improve your appearance by reducing or repositioning excess fat, removing extra eyelid skin or even changing the eyelid position. Dark circles under the eyes are often caused by shadowing under fat “bags” and this is also improved. The blepharoplasty surgery is often performed in conjunction fat grafting and laser resurfacing which improves the contour and skin quality.
The surgery itself takes about one to two hours. Patients rarely report any pain associated with surgery. While complications are rare, patients can minimize the risk for potential problems by carefully following the post-operative directions given after the surgery. Some swelling and bruising may last for a couple or weeks but the patient can be out sooner with some make-up or sunglasses. The benefits are long-lasting and patients will have a more rested and youthful appearance.
