The human body is an amazing thing; it never stops changing. Of course, some of these changes are less welcome than others, especially as we get older. While some changes only affect us cosmetically, others can have a negative impact on functionality.

Case in point: our eyes.

As time goes by, an area of the body that commonly loses elasticity is the skin around the eyes, which can result in the formation of under-eye bags, even when a person is well rested. Additionally, the skin above the eyes is also a concern for many, with a natural loss of elastin and collagen causing a person’s eyelids to droop. Sagging skin above the eyes can be more than just an aesthetic concern. In some cases, it can begin to hinder a person’s vision.

If you suffer from drooping eyelids, Dr. Bruno at Bruno Plastic Surgery has the answer. Whether your concerns are functional or cosmetic, receiving blepharoplasty in NEPA works wonders. A form of eyelid surgery that removes excess skin around the eyes, blepharoplasty creates a more alert and youthful appearance while also correcting visual obstructions.

How Does Blepharoplasty Work?

Before the blepharoplasty procedure, your doctor will meet with you to discuss the surgery and respond to any questions or concerns you might have. The doctor will also perform a number of important tests, including vision and tear-moisture tests, and may take photographs of your eyes to be used during the procedure.

During the surgery, patients will receive anesthesia and sedatives while the doctor makes small incisions to the eyelids. For the upper lid, the doctor will cut along the fold. For the lower lid, the doctor may make the incision on the inside of the lid or on the outside, in the crease just below the eyelashes. Through these incisions, the doctor will remove excess skin, muscle, and fat.

What to Expect After Eyelid Surgery

After undergoing a blepharoplasty procedure, patients are monitored closely in the recovery room. Following that, however, they may return to the comfort of their own home for the length of the healing process. The doctor will provide a number of helpful guidelines to follow, such as avoiding blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, using ice packs and cold compresses to reduce swelling, and wearing sunglasses outside to protect against light and wind.

Patients may temporarily experience a number of side effects, including blurred or doubled vision, light sensitivity, and watering eyes. With proper care and rest, however, these conditions will soon subside. Swelling and bruising usually fades within two weeks, after which you can enjoy a more youthful appearance and unobstructed vision.
