Eyelid Surgery, also known as Blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. This procedure can be performed for cosmetic reasons to improve the appearance of droopy or tired-looking eyes, or for functional reasons to improve vision obstructed by sagging eyelids. With the use of advanced techniques and technology, Eyelid Surgery has become a safe and effective way to restore a youthful, refreshed appearance to the eyes.
If you are considering Eyelid Surgery, it is important to have a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. During the consultation, your surgeon will assess your overall health, discuss your goals and expectations, and recommend the best course of treatment. The procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis and may involve local or general anesthesia. Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the surgery, but most patients are able to return to normal activities within a week or two.
