Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery
About Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery
The surgical procedure includes tiny incisions made in the natural contours around the eyes. The surgeon will usually work on the upper eyelids first to remove any fatty tissue and tighten loose skin.
The surgery generally takes about one to two hours. Sutures are typically removed one week after surgery.
Normally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and reduce the recovery time. Bruising around the eyes may be apparent during the first week after surgery. Patients sometimes report pain associated with surgery which can usually be treated with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize the risk for potential problems by carefully following the post-operative directions given after the surgery.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
