Age, exposure to the sun, injuries, and illnesses may all affect the shape and appearance of the eyes. When you want to improve the way your eyes look, you may wonder if you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty in Melbourne.
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery is also known as blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is a minimally-invasive surgery that is performed on an outpatient basis. It is relatively safe and discreet, making it favorable for patients who want to improve the way their eyes look without invasive surgery, risks to their health, or extensive recovery times. Most patients may return home to recuperate the same day on which their operations were performed.
Eyelid surgery is performed primarily for cosmetic reasons and addresses issues like:
• Bags under the eyes
• Skin that hangs over the top lid
• Fatty deposits under the bottom lid
• Poor quality of skin around the eyes
Blepharoplasty may not eliminate crow’s feet, wrinkles, or dark circles. It is most often performed in conjunction with other outpatient cosmetic procedures like forehead lifts.
How is the Procedure Performed?
Blepharoplasty is a fast and relatively simple outpatient cosmetic surgery. Our surgeon may remove excess skin and reshape your eyes during the procedure. You may generally return home on the same day as your procedure. It is important that you follow our doctor’s post-operative instructions to prevent infections and other side effects that may warrant further treatment.
Most blepharoplasty patients are fully recovered within just weeks after their operations. In the first few hours and days after your eyelid surgery, your eyes may feel the worst. However, in time, you may gradually start to see improvements in your eyes and in your overall appearance.
