Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery may involve surgery of the upper eyelid or lower eyelid, or both. The aim of the surgery is to provide a rejuvenated look to the area around the eyes and remove the saggy and bulging appearance that makes the eyes look older, and leaves you feeling dissatisfied or even embarrassed about your appearance. Correcting sagging, puffy eyes with blepharoplasty in our NY surgical facility, you can experience true facial rejuvenation that lets your image match your inner exuberance. If you want to look as young as you feel, a consultation with board certified cosmetic surgeon Edmund Kwan, M.D., could be just what you need.
Following blepharoplasty, a visible difference in the appearance of the eyes is noticed within just a few days. Within two weeks, most patients begin to visualize the lasting results that they will enjoy for years. Every person is different, and will experience total healing in their own time. Many people will see their desired result in terms of rejuvenation even before they have completely healed from the bruising or swelling that may occur after eyelid surgery.
Within the month after surgery, most people will see a complete turnaround. Gone are the bruises and any residual swelling from the blepharoplasty procedure. Better yet, gone are the lines, bags, and aged appearance that made you look older than you feel.
One of the benefits of blepharoplasty surgery is that your experienced surgeon carefully plans every part of the procedure, including the location of incisions. Your surgeon understands the importance of the eyes in the scope of the facial aesthetic, and places incisions in locations where scars will be easily hidden. Depending on the nature of surgery and the lids that are being treated – upper or lower – incisions may be made at the lash line, in the crease of the lid, or even just inside the lid It is the first priority of all experienced plastic surgeons to ensure that the patient does not suffer on account of scarring.
Blepharoplasty must be performed only by a highly experienced plastic surgeon who understands the sensitivity of the procedure. Eyes are the most delicate external organs of the human body. Your skilled surgeon will take precautions to ensure risk is minimized and optimal results maximized so that you get the rejuvenating results you desire.
Cosmetic surgery is a highly effective method for revitalizing your appearance. Eyelid surgery may be performed as the primary procedure, or may be an adjunct to another anti-aging treatment such as a brow lift. Ultimately, it is important to have realistic expectations for any cosmetic procedure. With over eighteen years of experience in his field, Dr. Kwan is considerate of patient expectations, and takes the time to fully explain what is possible with eyelid surgery alone. Working with your cosmetic surgeon, you will be able to determine the best way to get the full results you want.
