Eyelid Surgery FAQs

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgery that reduces the drooping of the eyelids. With age, the eyelids often become fattier. When this happens, the lids might hang down. If the problem rests in the upper lid, your lids might hang down into your field of view. If the hanging is more prominent in your lower lid, you might notice its appearance in the mirror every day.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a good option for those who have bags under their eyes or over the top lid of the eyes. If you have experienced discomfort caused by sagging eyelids or you notice that you can see your lids in your field of view, you may be a good candidate if you are in good health.

What Are the Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery can address your peripheral vision. It can also provide you with a more youthful or cheerful appearance, which can provide a boost in self-esteem or confidence. You can also eliminate the pain and discomfort associated with drooping eyelids.

What Is Recovery Like?

After surgery, you will be able to return home. This outpatient procedure allows you to recover at home, and you will need to take some time off work and away from exercise to allow your body to heal safely. You may experience some bruising, swelling, and redness. It's also normal to be sensitive to lights and to have double vision for several days. If you have concerns about your symptoms, you must speak with your eye doctor.

How Can You Schedule an Appointment for Eyelid Surgery?
