One procedure that we feel doesn’t get talked about enough is the eyelid lift or blepharoplasty. This procedure is relatively simple in comparison to a breast or body procedure but makes a world of a difference to one’s appearance. The facial enhancement procedure gives patients the flexibility to have the top, bottom or both lids done for a more refreshed look.
One of the most appealing characteristics of this procedure is the easily hidden incisions. Even though any incisions will likely fade well with proper care, these incisions are made carefully in the natural crease of the eye. This could be the upper eyelid crease that cannot be seen with the eye open or the crease at the lower lid. With these carefully hidden sutures, you can enjoy a seamless recovery.
A blepharoplasty is typical, an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia and sedation. The procedure itself is not incredibly invasive and mainly consists of the removal of small areas of excess skin or tiny fat deposits. After the procedure, you will be moved to a recovery area before you are released to a friend or family member to go home.
Once you are home and healing, you will find that the incision sites are barely noticeable. Once your skin has healed, you will be left with a more youthful appearance that doesn’t look overdone or change the structure of your face. Most often, we hear that patients’ friends and families ask what they’re doing differently because they look more rested and healthy with a more open-eyed look.
