What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, commonly called eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that adjusts the shape of the eyelids and can help to remove wrinkles around the eyes. Most patients choose to get eyelid surgery to correct bags under the eyes, wrinkles, or drooping eyelids that impair vision. Dr. Afrooz also specializes in Asian eyelid surgery, which is a similar procedure that is designed especially for Asian patients. In this procedure, an eyelid fold is created or modified to make the eyes wider, and appear less tired or heavy. In both cases, Dr. Afrooz uses his skill and drive for perfection to provide patients with a safe treatment that results in beautiful eyelids.
What is Double Eyelid Surgery?
A double eyelid surgery is another name for Asian eyelid surgery. A large portion of the Asian population does not have a natural fold in the eyelids, resulting in eyes that look tired or alert. A double eyelid surgery can help make the eyelid crease more visible, making it easier to apply makeup on the eyes and change their appearance. The Asian eyelid is different from eyelids of other ethnicities, so it is important that the surgeon performing this procedure is experienced in double eyelid surgery.
What Can I Expect from a Blepharoplasty Procedure?
A blepharoplasty can include a range of techniques to address a patient’s specific concerns. The procedure can vary for patients who are looking are looking for different results from their blepharoplasty, and depending on which eyelid the surgery is performed on. The procedure can include removing excess skin, removing or adding fat to the area, or tightening muscle. A blepharoplasty can last anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the work to be done.
How is Recovery from Blepharoplasty?
After a blepharoplasty, patients may experience blurred vision for a few days. It is also possible to experience bruising or swelling for up to a month after treatment. The most important part of recovery is getting adequate rest and protecting the eyes from any damage. We recommend that patients take extreme care around the incision sites and sleep on their backs so the eyelids aren’t irritated overnight.
