Get that Pleasing Appearance through Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgical procedure, highly requested by both men and women either for cosmetic or medical reasons. In this procedure, excess skin of the upper and lower eyelids is removed, underlying fatty tissue causing puffiness may be partly removed from the upper and lower lid if needed, and muscles of the lower eyelid may be tightened and repositioned to get a better “blending” or smoothing of the lid-cheek junction,. The incisions are well hidden and placed in the crease of the upper eyelid for upper eyelid surgery, and below the lower eyelid lashes or inside the lid in the case of lower eyelid surgery.
Ideal candidates are those who are healthy without significant eye problems, and have realistic expectations about the outcome of the procedure. Most people who have undergone this procedure have achieved their aesthetic goals and experienced immense boost in their self esteem and confidence.
Minimal Risks and Maximum Benefits
The surgery can be performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia, and will take approximately one to three hours to complete. It is usually done in a surgical facility as an outpatient procedure. Sometimes, a forehead lift and/or a face lift may be recommended along with the eyelid surgery to achieve the best aesthetic harmony of the upper and lower face. Swelling, discoloration and bruising are likely to occur and will disappear within a few weeks. To learn even more about what this procedure entails, along with the recuperation, and potential risks of this procedure, a thorough consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is recommended.
