Discussing Blepharoplasty at your Consultation

The first step in deciding whether eyelid surgery is right for you is to schedule a consultation. Our oculo-facial plastic surgeons have extensive training, education and experience in the field of facial surgery, and they can accurately assess if blepharoplasty is a good fit for the results you want. During your consultation, you may cover issues including:

  • What are your expectations for the final results of blepharoplasty?
  • What changes would you like to see?
  • Are you able to take some time off from work, certain social activities, and certain types of exercise?
  • Are you considering combining eyelid surgery with any other facial procedures?
  • Do you have any problems with your vision because of sagging eyelids?

We encourage you to bring up any questions or concerns during your consultation. Our oculo-facial surgeons are committed to dedicating personalized time to you, during which you get the individualized attention you deserve.

The Eyelid Surgery Recovery

Most people interested in blepharoplasty are curious about the recovery period. Like any surgical procedure, eyelid surgery does require you to take some time off from your normal routine.

Each person's recovery is slightly unique, and depends on whether you have upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery or both. We will make sure you are provided with clear and thorough aftercare instructions so that you can enjoy a successful recovery and get back to normal as quickly as possible. You may need to stay home from work for a week or so. You may also have swelling and bruising around your eyes that will gradually go away.

Once you heal, you can enjoy a fresh, rejuvenated appearance. Eyelid surgery often has the effect of rejuvenating your entire face by removing sagging, puffy eyelid skin. Schedule a consult today to see if it will fit your expectations.
