Let’s Talk About Eyelid Rejuvenation
- Posted on: Oct 15 2017
It’s been said that the eyes are the windows to the soul. True or not, they are one of the first things people notice about you. Unfortunately, aging, time, exposure to the sun and heredity can cause the lids of your eyes to droop.
Drooping eyelids is one of the major reasons people consider blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, eye lift or eyelid rejuvenation. A blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure which effectively tightens and removes excess upper eyelid skin, muscle and sometimes fat for a more alert and youthful appearance.
During the procedure, small incisions are made in the natural crease of your upper eyelid. Excess skin and fat are removed, and the incision is closed. The surgery is done as an out-patient procedure, and we take every precaution for your safety and comfort.
As a side benefit, blepharoplasty may also improve your vision by providing a less obstructed field of vision once the drooping eyelids are improved.
You may want to consider Eyelid Rejuvenation Surgery:
- If you have loose skin which hangs down from your eyelids and covers your lashes
- If you have excess skin which covers the natural fold of your eyelids
- If your lids appear puffy, making you look old and tired
What happens after surgery?
- Expect your eyes to be swollen and bruised. You may also experience some pain and blurred vision. It is important to keep your head in an upright position.
- Applying ice packs can soothe the pain and control any inflammation.
- You will be given pain medications and an antibiotic ointment to prevent infection.
- Walking is recommended in the early phase of your recovery…but take it easy. No brisk, workout-type walking even though you may be accustomed to it. The walking goal is to promote circulation and healing.
- Heavy exercise is not recommended for several weeks after surgery.
- Avoid exercises that require you to bend over, such as yoga, and avoid lifting heavy weights for up to three weeks.
