Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty creates a more well-rested appearance and can correct problems related to aging. Some Blepharoplasty patients are attempting to combat inherited traits, such as chronic dark circles, or excess skin. Occasionally, Blepharoplasty is performed in conjunction with another treatment to provide optimal results.

Preparation 

Prior to undergoing Blepharoplasty, the patient should discuss in detail with the plastic surgeon scheduled to perform their Blepharoplasty their expectations for the outcome of the surgery, their medical history prior to this Blepharoplasty, any types of eye conditions, etc. Once the surgeon knows all the individual factors of your Blepharoplasty, they can come up with a list of the possible options that fit your needs.

Procedure
During the Blepharoplasty, the surgeon makes an incision later hidden by the eyelashes or the natural skin fold following Blepharoplasty. Excess skin and fatty tissue are removed through this incision, which should heal well after Blepharoplasty, leaving little or no visible scar. If the surgeon performs a lower Blepharoplasty, fat may be redistributed to create a more even appearance, and excess tissue is removed.

Recovery

Blepharoplasty recovery times can vary by individual, taking up to weeks or months following the Blepharoplasty for the scarring to completely fade, although swelling and bruising from Blepharoplasty should fade in considerably less time and the end results are long-lasting.
