How to Value Blepharoplasty Surgery (Eyelid Surgery)

Eyes are the first place to show signs of facial ageing. It is common to perform blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, in order to treat tired eyes. The procedure is performed so often because the condition causes many patients to be distressed, as they get an unwarranted impression that their eyes are tired. Each human interaction is based on the gaze of another person. All people can see tired eyes!

Since the eyelids tend to be at the center of human contact, blepharoplasty is a great way to improve the appearance. You can look younger and fresher by removing some excess skin or fat. Blepharoplasty is the best option for facial rejuvenation. The procedure is the most effective in changing your look.

Most patients find blepharoplasty to be painless. Although there may be some visible swelling or bruising, the pain is rarely felt. It may seem like you’re beaten, but it’s not the case. What I refer to as social recovery, is recovering from blepharoplasty. You will know when you are ready to return in the public. Some patients aren’t concerned about the opinions of others and return to work within 3-5 days. Most patients, on the other hand, care what people think and may take up to seven to ten days to return fully to public view.

The amount of swelling and bruises that occur after a plastic surgery procedure, such as blepharoplasty, can be affected by what you do prior to and following the operation. First, stop using medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and aspirin that cause excessive bleeding. Next, take arnica pills for one week both before and after the surgery. In the 24 hours following surgery, it is extremely beneficial to maintain your head upright and place ice over the eyes. The ice should be placed on the Actipatch Eye Recovery Mask immediately following surgery. ActiPatch releases electromagnetic pulses that reduce swelling in the affected eyelids. The main thing you need to do after your surgery is keep your eyes moistened with antibiotic eye ointment. The sutures will be softer and easier to remove.

After 10-14 days you’ll look “non-operated”, even if there’s still a small amount of swelling, and maybe some bruising around the lower lid. After 3 weeks, your benefits from blepharoplasty will fully be realized. Your eyes will undoubtedly look more rested, and this will be noticeable…even though the majority will never know that eyelid surgery was responsible.
