Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia in which excess skin and/or fat is removed to improve the appearance of droopy eyelids or under eye bags. Patients may opt to have either their eyelids or under eye bags individually corrected, or as many choose, have both rejuvenated at the same time.
To correct sagging eyelids, Dr. Nguyen makes short fine incisions along the natural upper eyelid creases and removes the appropriate amount of excess skin. In some cases, the eyelid muscle is also tightened. To eliminate under eye bags and puffiness, fine incisions are made directly below the lower lash line. Through these incisions fat is either removed or redistributed. Excess skin may be removed, as well. The incisions in both upper and lower eyelid surgery are closed with sutures. These are removed in 2-7 days. Because the incisions are strategically placed if any scarring should occur it will be virtually undetectable.
Dr. Nguyen provides detailed instructions on how to care for your eyes, which will include using ice packs to control swelling and bruising. Everyone heals at their own rate, but most people are ready - and eager - to debut their new eyes within two weeks of having blepharoplasty.
Year after year, blepharoplasty continues to be among the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States, with more than 200,000 patients undergoing the procedure annually. This procedure also has one of the highest satisfaction rates (94%), according to Realself, and online service that polls patients nationwide. If you’re a healthy adult looking to achieve a more refreshed, youthful appearance, eyelid surgery is well-worth considering. Many patients opt to combine blepharoplasty with cosmetic dermal fillers or Botox® to address crow’s feet. The results of the pairing are truly amazing.
