- Posted on: Dec 15 2018
If you’ve been thinking about the present you want to give yourself, you may be thinking of making some big changes. After all, isn’t 2019 the year we all learn to love ourselves and take better care of ourselves? For us, that means minimizing time with people who make us feel bad, or never good enough.
But sometimes we want to change for ourselves, and not because of anyone else. If your eyelids are bothering you, either because you have excess skin that affects your vision or you feel you look angry when you look in the mirror, this is your year. Keep reading to learn about Blepharoplasty and how it can help you have a great year where you put yourself first.
What does it treat?
Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure designed to give you an eyelid that helps you see and feel better. This procedure involves removing some skin and fat above the eyelid, though the exact procedure will be tailored to your concerns. Whether you have puffy eyes, tired-looking eyes, or excess skin that dips into your vision, Blepharoplasty can help.
Will I have scars?
We know how to hide the scarring from eyelid surgery very well. Scars will always results after a surgery, but the results are affected by how we place them and how well you take care of them. We know how to minimize the scarring, and we will give you instructions on how to best care for your eyes when you get home. Often, you are the only one who knows that the little crease near your eyelid is a scar.
Can I wear contact lenses?
Contact lenses can pose an extra set of concerns for those who have just gotten Blepharoplasty. This is because putting in contacts and removing them involves handling of the eyelid that can affect your results. Thus, we recommend wearing glasses during the time your eyelids are healing.
How long is recovery?
Performed under general or local anaesthesia, eyelid surgery typically takes one to two hours. You will usually be allowed to go home the same day after recovering for a few hours in our surgical facility.
