Did you know that the simplest changes implemented via cosmetic surgery can wipe many years off your face and give you the chance to improve your appearance in no time? If you are tired of creams, potions and other non-surgical remedies that fail to provide the desirable results for your eyelid puffiness, now is the best time to follow a different approach. Opt for a blepharoplasty – eyelid surgery performed by our experienced cosmetic plastic surgeon at the Beau Visage Center in Austin, TX.
If you are constantly bothered by an aesthetic problem, you know just how important it really is to put an end to it in a timely fashion. Often, upper and lower eyelid puffiness are simply inherited facial features that run in the family. For others, eyelid puffiness and under eye bags don’t begin to form until later in life.
As we get older, the thinning of the membrane (known as the “septum”) can cause fatty tissue to push forward and fill in spaces below the eye. This gives the appearance of bags or bulges beneath the eye, making you look constantly tired. This can be corrected through a simple under eye surgery, known as lower blepharoplasty. During this procedure, excess fat is removed from beneath the eye, restoring a smooth and more taut appearance to the lower eyelids.
On the other hand, many of our Austin eyelid surgery patients come to us frustrated by drooping upper eyelids that are making them look sad or angry all the time. This problem can easily be fixed via an upper blepharoplasty procedure (sometimes referred to as eyelid lift surgery or simply an eye lift).
Preparing for Your Blepharoplasty
You shouldn’t feel intimidated by eyelid surgery. This can be an important first step in the right direction toward a healthier, younger-looking face. If you want to turn back the clock, blepharoplasty can be one of your greatest allies. An eye lift can be performed in a couple of hours, if both eyelids (lower and upper) are done at the same time. Patients are sedated during the procedure, so you won’t even feel it.
By following the lines of your eyelid, Dr. Bittar manages to make small, precise incisions and eliminate excess muscle, tissue or fat. Using tiny stitches, he will close the small-scale cuts. Stitches can be removed after approximately 6 days. In some cases, the lower lids may not require any stitches, but this depends a great deal on the technique employed by our facial plastic surgeon and the particularities of each case.
Blepharoplasty complications are very uncommon and eyelid surgery recovery time is quite minimal. Swelling and bruising are perfectly normal, but should dissipate within the first week after the surgery. After one or two weeks, your eyelids should look better than ever. Eyelid surgery can also be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as laser skin resurfacing to reduce or eliminate wrinkles and various other irregularities of the skin.
