Trust An Oculoplastic Surgeon With Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is performed to expand the area of view that the eye is capable of seeing. In addition, it is a cosmetic enhancement procedure performed. This procedure has the potential to improve the patient’s quality of life, bringing many benefits with refreshed and rejuvenated eyelids. There are also some side-effects the patient should be aware of before making the decision to undergo blepharoplasty.

The Benefits of Blepharoplasty

One of the primary changes that a patient may notice is an increase in peripheral vision. This is because the procedure reduces excess skin and fat around the eyes. The benefits of expanded vision are many-fold and can positively affect all areas of life. Among its aesthetic benefits, eyelid cosmetic surgery will smooth the area around the eye, making the patient look younger, less tired and more refreshed. Even the forehead muscles can benefit, since after the surgery they will have to expend less energy to hold the eyes open. Much as with expanded vision, having a more youthful appearance can offer many subtle advantages to the patient.

The Healing Process

As with all surgeries, cosmetic or otherwise, there are some potential side-effects that may occur. Following the instructions of the blepharoplasty surgeon can reduce the chances of this risk, so the patient should be sure to discuss it with Dr. Schwarcz before and after the surgery. Infection around the incision of the eyelid is a possibility, as is bleeding, and so care must be taken with this incision to make sure it stays closed and dressed. Scarring is also a risk, but one of the advantages of this surgery is that the scar tends to stay hidden in the crease of the eyelid.
