Call the office to schedule a consultation, or use the online booking tab today.
Eyelid rejuvenation, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgery that lifts and tightens your eyelids to help you see better and look younger. It’s an excellent solution if you have excess or sagging upper or lower eyelids. The procedure can also improve your line of vision by removing tissues that hang too low.
The benefits you can take advantage of when choosing eyelid rejuvenation include:
You can achieve the younger-looking, revitalized eyelids and overall appearance you desire, and there’s little downtime after eyelid rejuvenation.
To determine if eyelid rejuvenation is for you, the Advanced Specialty Associates team discusses your medical history and desired results.
They review the results of an eye exam and visual field testing to determine if drooping lids impair your line of vision. Your Advanced Specialty Associates provider then tailors an eyelid rejuvenation treatment that suits your needs. If needed, they send your information to your insurance company to find out if your insurance plan covers the procedure.
Before eyelid rejuvenation, your provider uses local or general anesthesia to ensure you feel no discomfort. They make small incisions near the natural creases in your upper lids and below the lash line in your lower eyelids. Your surgeon removes excess fat and other tissues before reconstructing the lids and closing any incisions.
After eyelid surgery, you might have temporary swelling, tenderness, blurry vision, double vision, light sensitivity, or numb eyelids.
It’s important to follow your provider’s post-care instructions. Take medicines as directed, and avoid touching your eyelids. Protect them from the sun, ice them as needed, and attend follow-up visits at Advanced Specialty Associates to ensure proper healing. Don’t smoke, and avoid vigorous exercise and rubbing your eyes until your surgeon permits.
Over time as the swelling disappears, you can expect tighter, lifted, younger-looking lids and improvements in your field of vision.
