The Benefits of Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure performed on the eyelids.
Eyelid surgery can reduce overall bagginess from the lower eyelids as well as improve sight for those whose sagging upper eyelids impair their vision.
There are several reasons to consider eyelid surgery. Below we share the most common reasons why many consider blepharoplasty to improve themselves medically and aesthetically.
The areas surrounding the eyes are often the first to show noticeable signs of facial aging. Even for those who practice a consistent and healthy skincare routine, sometimes this is not enough to prevent excess skin and sag around the eyes.
Eyelid surgery is an effective way to address those concerns and give you a more youthful, refreshed look. This procedure can reduce the excess skin and “bagginess” around the eyes, lessen overall puffy appearance, smooth and firm the skin around the eyes and leave the patient with a rested and vibrant look.
Fortunately, eyelid tissue tends to heal very well with little scarring. In fact, your skin begins to heal the moment your plastic surgeon completes the procedure. Due to the minimally invasive nature of this surgery, it generally only requires a local anesthetic and patients remain conscious throughout the procedure.
In addition, the incisions made on the eyelid are minimal and in most cases the incision site is concealed by the natural creases of the skin and is faint enough that it does not diminish from the overall result. Recovery time following blepharoplasty typically only requires two weeks to heal.
The results of the surgery will fully appear within several weeks and will correct the issue permanently. It is still important to practice healthy skin habits such as moisturizing and consistently using sun protection. This procedure requires no maintenance or upkeep and is only performed once on a patient.
