The aging eye often results in a tired, angry, or sad appearance. Eyelid Surgery also known as Blepharoplasty, is commonly done for aging eyes, but in some people the traits are inherited requiring surgery at a younger age. In any case, this procedure will result in a more rested, alert, and energized appearance.
This procedure that can be done on upper eyelids for excessive, wrinkled, drooping skin and/or on lower eyelids for excessive skin or fat resulting in puffy bags. Eyelid surgery can be done alone, or can be performed in conjunction with a face-lift, or other facial procedures. The upper eyelid incisions are camouflaged in the natural eyelid fold. The lower eyelid incisions are placed just below the lash line. Through this incision excess skin and fat are removed. In some cases, the underlying muscle will be tightened. The incisions eventually fade and blend into the natural creases of the eye.
Following surgery, you may temporarily experience tightness around the eyes, bruising, and swelling (these symptoms vary among individuals). Within the first week, stitches will be removed. After two weeks, non-strenuous exercise may be resumed, and you may wear contact lenses if needed. For several months the skin around your eyes should be treated with extra care. As with all cosmetic procedures, the final result will be apparent by about one year. The results of eyelid surgery are long lasting; however, keep in mind that your eyes will continue to age through the years.
