Excess, sagging tissue that has accumulated around the eyelids can create a chronically tired or sad expression. Vision may be impaired in patients who have severe eyelid sagging. Excess skin that obscures your eyes can rob you of a bright and youthful facial appearance. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, lifts sagging eyelids to erase these signs of aging from around your eyes.
There are several options available for blepharoplasty. With advice and suggestions from Dr. Jazayeri, your surgery will be customized to provide you with the best results possible.
A: Most patients require a week of recovery time and can return to work during the second week of their recovery. Typically, the full recovery period is six weeks, but minor swelling can persist for several months, which can affect the quality of your results.
A: You will likely experience some pain in the first few days following your surgery, but medication will be prescribed to control this postoperative pain.
A: Incisions are placed in the natural eyelid creases or along the interior of the eyelids, and most patients don’t develop visible scarring.
A: While rare, excess bleeding and infection can occur following your procedure. Some patients may experience temporary changes in sensation around the eyes.
A: Blepharoplasty provides long-lasting improvement to the eyes. While it can improve signs of aging, it cannot reverse the aging process. Most patients have results that leave them looking younger for five to 10 years.
