Blepharoplasty is the medical term for eyelid surgery. This type of surgical procedure helps lift drooping upper eyelids. Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes by tightening loose muscles and skin.
Blepharoplasty helps eliminates loose skin around the upper eye area. Eyelid surgery can make your eyes appear more youthful and alert. A properly performed blepharoplasty can take years off your appearance.
In some cases, blepharoplasty isn't just a cosmetic procedure: Sagging eyelids can sometimes impair your vision. Blepharoplasty helps remove the excess skin that may be limiting your sight.
Before undergoing blepharoplasty, you meet with Dr. Ness for an in-depth consultation. Dr. Ness examine your eyes and reviews your medical history to determine if blepharoplasty is right for you.
If you have certain medical or ophthalmological conditions, Dr. Ness may advise against eyelid surgery. If a blepharoplasty isn't an option for you, he can help you explore other cosmetic treatments.
Blepharoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure, and many patients can receive eyelid surgery with only local anesthetic and sedatives. This combination of medication allows for faster recovery time and a lower risk of complications.
Most procedures take 1-2 hours. After your treatment is complete, you relax in a recovery room until you're ready to go home. Dr. Ness and his team provide detailed discharge instructions and follow-up care to make sure you're recovering on schedule.
It's normal to experience some swelling and bruising after undergoing blepharoplasty. These side effects usually disappear within 1-2 weeks. Full results may not appear until the swelling has gone down.
Most patients notice a significant improvement in the appearance of their eyes and results typically last for 5-7 years. But it's vital that you continue caring for your skin to preserve your results.
Dr. Ness can also help you explore treatments that can prevent new wrinkling in the eye area. Blepharoplasty is often used alongside other cosmetic treatments and procedures to produce the best possible results. Botox® injections or facials can help maximize the results of your blepharoplasty.
