Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) removes excess fat, along with skin and muscle, from the upper and lower eyelids to give the face a brighter, more youthful appearance. This common surgery can even help improve vision in patients where skin from the upper eyelids hangs down and partially blocks peripheral vision.
In the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Eko at Eko Plastic Surgery, the procedure is safe and effective. After putting the patient under local anesthetic around the eye as well as oral or intravenous sedatives, he makes an incision along the natural lines of your eyelids, in the creases of your upper lids and below the lashes in your lower lids. Then, he removes excess fat and trims saline skin and muscle after separating the skin from fatty tissue and closes the incision.
The procedure lasts 1 to 3 hours and often requires a recovery time of 7 to 10 days. During this time, the most common side effects you may experience include bruising, swelling, temporary difficulty closing your eyelids, or blurry vision.
The rewards of the surgery are permanent. However, as many patients experience further aging, they may elect additional plastic surgeries or even a facelift. For information on eyelid surgery, fill out the website form below or call us today at (760) 249-2222.
