You might be interested in blepharoplasty, a cosmetic surgery procedure if you have droopy, wrinkled, or asymmetrical eyelids. It could also help you if you have tired-looking eyes because of dark circles caused by eye bags. Due to these issues, you may feel so self-conscious about your appearance that you even shy away from showing your face in private mobile video chats, business teleconference calls, or family pictures.
Basically, blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that removes fat and excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids, tightens the muscles of the eyes, and corrects the droopy inner skin in the corners of the eyes.
It is usually done as an outpatient procedure, using local anesthesia and sedation to numb the upper and lower eyelids. Generally, it is performed in an office setting or in a hospital operating room and takes between 30 minutes and an hour.
Consult your doctor if you’re thinking about getting this surgery. Should they agree that it would help you raise your self-esteem, your next step is to ensure that you only select an experienced plastic surgeon with specialized training in blepharoplasty.
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about this type of surgery.
How Do You Know if You’re a Good Candidate?
You will benefit from this procedure if:
* You have loose skin or excess fat in your eyelids
* You would like to decrease bags under your eyes
* You have asymmetrical eyelids between your two eyes
* You have large pores in your eyelids
After this procedure corrects these issues, your appearance will change, with your eyes looking attractive and more youthful.
What are Some Risks?
Blepharoplasty surgery comes with different risks, one of which is that it is impossible to predict how much improvement your eyes will see after the procedure. You may also experience dryness, redness, double vision, or infection for up to two weeks following surgery.
How Long Does It Take to Recover?
Recovery usually takes four to six weeks, but it may take longer if there are complications. As a patient, you should follow your doctor’s instructions meticulously and take diligent care of yourself so that you can recover properly as quickly as possible. How long it takes to heal will depend on how many stitches are used and how much bruising or swelling is present.
