Blepharoplasty Can Make You Look Refreshed and Younger
Blepharoplasty can make you look refreshed and younger. However hard you may try to keep
your body in shape, droopy eyelids would easily give away your age, which is why
blepharoplasty is a much sought after treatment. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can correct the
droopiness, make the skin firmer, and perhaps make you look a few years younger.
Blepharoplasty Is Convenient for Busy Individuals
Blepharoplasty can be performed on an outpatient basis which makes it quite a convenient
solution. During the initial consultation, your eyelids and general health will be examined. The
surgeon will decide whether you’re a right candidate for the procedure and also keep your
expectations in check.
It will be decided whether the procedure should involve a combination of lower eyelid surgery
and upper eyelid surgery or one of them. Sometimes the cosmetic eyelid surgery will need to be
performed along with other procedures such as brow lift, neck lift, and facelift for the best results.
Blepharoplasty Is an Outpatient Procedure
If blepharoplasty is performed independently without any other
procedure, it does not require overnight stay. There could be
swelling around the eyes for a few days following the surgery.
Cool packs would take care of these. There would be
moisturizing drops necessary for protecting the eyes for a week following the surgery. Patients
can return to normalcy within a week though, and sunglasses would be needed to conceal the
bruising though it would disappear later. There will also be pain medication prescribed.
How Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Works
The blepharoplasty process involves removing excess skin, fat and muscle from the eyelids which
brings about a more rejuvenated appearance. The lower eyelid is the more complex portion and
demands deftness and experience. Getting in touch with a reliable AAAASF-accredited plastic
surgery center is so important because this is where high tech tools and facilities blend with
experienced and talented surgeons which ensure the best results in a safer way. The advantage is
not only aesthetic but also medical.
Other Procedures within Blepharoplasty
Complete blepharoplasty cosmetic surgery could involve Canthopexy which is the
repositioning of the corner of the eye and repositioning of the tarsal strip lateral eyelid and the
lower or upper eyelid according to the need. There are fat sliding procedures for the lower eyelid
as well as ablation of the fat tear trough. There is also extensive release of orbicularis during the
cosmetic eyelid surgery.
The procedure most commonly performed in conjunction with upper eyelid surgery is Browpexy
or repositioning of the eyebrow. Upper blepharoplasty can help to improve the appearance of the
glabellar frown lines.
These procedures carried out deftly by plastic surgeons can really bring about marked changes in
your appearance. The treatment is not cumbersome and you wouldn’t need to stay away from
your regular routine for long. Blepharoplasty can make you look refreshed and younger, and
improve your self-esteem.
