Laser Eyelid Surgery

Laser eyelid surgery is used to reduce or remove puffy or sagging skin around the eyes. Individuals using laser eyelid surgery are able to markedly decrease signs of aging and fatigue. At an increasing rate, laser eyelid surgery is replacing the standard method of incision using traditional surgical techniques. Most plastic surgeons perform laser eyelid surgery as an outpatient procedure, allowing patients to return home immediately following surgery.

Plastic surgeons performing laser eyelid surgery use a laser beam to make a small incision, sometimes from inside the eyelid. Many laser eyelid surgery doctors prefer this method, as the laser actually cauterizes (seals) blood vessels during the incision; laser eye surgery patients bleed less than patients in traditional surgeries, allowing the plastic surgeon performing the laser eyelid surgery to clearly monitor the progress of the surgical treatment. Another major advantage of laser eyelid surgery over traditional methods is the lack of scarring following the procedure, and generally speaking, laser eyelid surgery patients also experience less bruising, swelling, and discoloration. This means that recovery following a laser eyelid surgery usually takes far less time than traditional eyelid surgery.

For more information about laser eyelid surgery, you may wish to contact a plastic surgeon or clinic that performs laser eyelid surgery on a consistent basis. Asking questions about the procedure can help you determine if laser eyelid surgery is right for you.
