WHAT IS BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Blepharoplasty is surgery of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It is used to correct aging eyelids and can restore the smooth, youthful contours to your eyelids, remove bags, puffiness, and dark circles.Watch Dr. Gawley Videos - Click Here
IS BLEPHAROPLASTY RIGHT FOR ME?
The ideal candidate for blepharoplasty has:
- Drooping upper eyelids
- Excess fat in the eyelids
- Bags or puffiness
- Dark circles
ARE THE RESULTS OF BLEPHAROPLASTY PERMANENT?
The results are long lasting. Eyelid surgery will not stop the aging process, but it will set the clock back on your appearance. Any fat removal is permanent and does not grow back.
CAN I HAVE BLEPHAROPLASTY IN COMBINATION WITH OTHER PROCEDURES?
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECOVER?
You should be able to return to light activity within a few days. Swelling and bruising will subside in about two weeks. If you wear contact lenses, you can begin wearing them again in about ten days to two weeks after surgery.
WILL BLEPHAROPLASTY REMOVE THE WRINKLES FROM AROUND MY EYES?
No, eyelid surgery does not address the wrinkles around your eyes, such as crows’ feet. However, you can have other procedures in combination with blepharoplasty to address these problems. Many patients chooseBOTOX® as a complementary procedure to smooth crow’s feet and furrows between the eyebrows.
WILL BLEPHAROPLASTY LEAVE VISIBLE SCARS?
The incisions used in eyelid surgery are placed so that they are hidden in the natural creases of your eyes, so scarring is not visible.
