Upper and lower blepharoplasty involves excising skin, sometimes fat and muscle in the natural hidden skin creases.
Our eyes are the windows to our souls, and naturally may require rejuvenation
With age, we can unfortunately have an appearance of constantly looking tired or unhappy
Incisions are placed in the natural skin creases
This is done as a day case, and either awake or asleep
Single lids-1 hour, both upper and lower-2 hours
Swelling peaks at day 3
The skin is healed after 5 days-and stitches are removed after a week.
The scar becomes inconspicuous after 3 weeks
There are often irregularities which settle once the skin softens up
Eyesight could be blurry for a few days, and dry eyes often settle with eye drops.
