The eyelids can age just like any other part of the face. Eyelids lose elasticity as well and can start to droop, even obstructing your vision sometimes. There can be wrinkles around the eyes that add to an aged appearance. Blepharoplasty involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids to make your eyes look refreshed. This is a very common procedure. When choosing a surgeon for blepharoplasty it is important that you choose a surgeon with training and experience. Dr. Stanislaw is a highly-skilled surgeon who performs blepharoplasty on many patients each year. He will discuss if this is a good surgery for you and let you know of the side effects that could potentially occur.
There are many benefits of blepharoplasty such as decreased puffiness in the eyes, and tighten skin to eliminate sagging. Dr. Stanislaw will go over your aesthetic goals and concerns for the surgery during a consultation appointment. He performs both upper and lower blepharoplasty depending on your intended needs. Upper blepharoplasty helps to remove any excess, sagging skin from the upper eyelid. Lower blepharoplasty helps to get rid of puffy and bagginess under the eyes. Upper blepharoplasty is done using local anesthesia and takes about 2-hours in total. Lower blepharoplasty is done at the hospital and also takes about 2-hours. The eyes are a major feature when it comes to looking your best. The better your eyes look, the younger the rest of your face looks.
After the procedure, you need to make sure that you sleep in an elevated position for at least a few days. Swelling and bruising normally lasts for just a couple of weeks and after this, you will begin to notice a brighter appearance. Blepharoplasty is a safe procedure but there can be risks of bleeding, scarring, and infection.
