Feeling self-confident can have a big impact on how a patient feels about themselves. When imperfections occur on the facial area, patients may want to seek plastic surgery to rejuvenate their appearance. This includes visiting Romo Plastic Surgery in New York, NY to learn about procedures such as a blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery.
What is eyelid surgery?
Eyelid surgery is done to address a number of issues, including puffy lower eyelids or sagging upper eyelids which may or may not affect one’s overall vision. The procedure is performed to remove excess skin and suture in the creases of the eyelids to hide any surgical scars following treatment. The procedure is considered one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for both women and men in the United States as reported by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
What is the downtime associated with eyelid surgery?
When patients undergo blepharoplasty, they will need to take some time off of work and social activities to heal and recovery properly. Most patients can return back to their normal schedule in approximately one week, and should attend a follow-up appointment with their doctor to monitor their healing process.
What are the benefits of eyelid surgery?
Eyelid surgery is often done to improve one’s field of vision while addressing tired or sagging eyes that may be negatively impacting one’s overall appearance. It is a procedure that is done more often than other procedures because there is no alternative way to address it. For example, a patient who is struggling with fine lines and wrinkles on the face can turn to a dermatologist for cosmetic injectables and avoid plastic surgery, while there is no other method of improving the appearance of the eyes other than surgical interventions.
