- Posted on: Dec 15 2018
We love people and appreciate the differences each of us bring to the table. We truly believe here’s a beauty in everyone, and maintaining your unique look is a great way to have a happy, successful life. That being said, we all find little things about our appearance that we would like to tweak and adjust.
Regardless of where you’re from, there are certain standards of beauty that we feel inclined to learn about. We can accept them or reject them, depending on how we feel. That being said, we know that there are many people who want to tweak the way their eyes look. Maybe they are self conscious about eyes that make them look tired. If you’re interested in learning more about Blepharoplasty (or cosmetic eyelid surgery), keep reading.
What does it treat?
Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure designed to give you an eyelid that you can be proud of. This procedure involves removing some skin and fat above the eyelid. Whether you have puffy eyes, or excess skin that dips into your vision, eyelid surgery may be a great option for you. Regardless of your reasoning, eyelid surgery is a good option for you if you desire it.
Will I have scars?
Scarring will always be present after a surgical procedure, but we know how to hide the scarring from eyelid surgery very well. We know how to minimize the scarring, and we will give you instructions on how to best care for your eyes when you get home, so your healing will be optimal. Oftentimes, the scar is not even noticeable because it is so well-hidden in the crease of the eyelid.
Can I wear contact lenses?
Putting in and taking out contact lenses requires pulling on the skin of the eyelid, and we do not recommend wearing contact lenses until your eyes have had a chance to heal. You will likely need to wear glasses for a few days or weeks, depending on your specific concern and healing time.
