What is Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a procedure to remove loose, sagging skin or excess fat from the upper or lower eyelids. Many patients achieve a more alert appearance as well as improved vision after eyelid surgery.
What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?
Eyelid surgery rejuvenates the eye area leaving you looking well rested, youthful, and awake. For patients whose sight is impaired by sagging eyelids, this procedure will also help to improve vision. By removing the extra skin from the eyes, this may also help to prevent frequent eye infections.
Who is an Ideal Candidate for Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?
If you have a perpetually tired look to your eyes due to droopy, sagging, or puffy eyelid skin, you may be a great candidate for blepharoplasty. If your vision is impaired due to excess skin and fat in the eyelid region, you may also be an ideal candidate for blepharoplasty.
What is the Procedure for Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?
Surgery is available to correct both the upper and lower eyelid areas. Incisions are placed along the natural creases of the eyelids and the extra fat, skin, and muscle are removed. This outpatient procedure is performed under general anesthesia at Coastal Cosmetic Center’s nationally accredited on-site surgery center, Coastal Surgery Center, in Jacksonville, FL. Generally, patients can expect eyelid surgery to take less than three hours to complete.
What is the Recovery for Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)?
Side effects consist of bruising, swelling and light sensitivity—all of which will dissipate within 10 days post-procedure. Contact lenses can be worn immediately after eyelid surgery, although the use of any eye make-up is restricted until after the sutures are removed.
