Let’s start with few eye opening facts about Blepharoplasty:
It may be time to consider blepharoplasty if you have excess, drooping skin on top of your eyelids or can no longer conceal the sagging bags beneath your eyes.
It is Really Trendy Treatment
More than 206,0000 blepharoplasties were performed in the United States in 2018, making it one of the most prevalent cosmetic surgical operations. Blepharoplasties are derived from the Greek words blepharon (meaning “eyelid”) and plasin (“to shape”).
It is Possible to Treat Both the Upper & Lower eyelids
Blepharoplasty can also be used to treat bags and creepy skin beneath the eyes, in addition to drooping upper eyelids. A more natural, smooth appearance can be produced by removing extra fat beneath the eyes. Puffiness under the eyes can cast a shadow on the area and is frequently to blame for the appearance of dark circles.
You Have the Choice of Staying Awake During Operation
IV Sedation Anesthesia is used for all blepharoplasty surgeries. Patients are not rendered unconscious; rather, they are sedated to the point of being exceedingly comfortable, calm, and possibly asleep during the process.
Your Vision may be improved After Blepharoplasty
While most cosmetic operations are performed so that patients can improve their appearance, blepharoplasty can also help you see better. Sagging skin that droops over or around the eyes might make viewing items in your field of vision more challenging. This should be remedied after an eyelid lift, and you should be able to see clearly again.
Insurance May Cover Your Treatment
Most cosmetic surgeries are usually not covered by medical insurance. However, eyelid lift surgery can be an exception to the rule. When it is determined that excess skin covering the eyes is impairing a patient’s vision, blepharoplasty may be covered in part or in full. Be sure to contact your insurance provider before surgery.
Other Operations Can Be Joined with an Eyelid Lift
Blepharoplasty can be a significant tool in the fight against the effects of ageing on its own, battling the appearance of sagging, aged skin and restoring a more youthful appearance. The effects can be amazing when combined with other popular cosmetic treatments like a brow lift, laser skin resurfacing, or a facelift.
Long Lasting Results
Soon after their blepharoplasty, patients notice a difference in the appearance of their eyes, and the swelling has reduced. The procedure’s best outcomes may take up to a year to achieve. Your eyelids will gradually recover over the next few months. Although the effects of other cosmetic treatments may decrease over time as the body returns to its natural state, this is not usually the case with an eyelid lift. The majority of patients have long-term outcomes.
