Say Goodbye to Your Scars: The Art of Eyelid Scar Revision Surgery

Eyelid Scar RevisionSome scars are cool to show off— especially when you’re five– but as you get older, those scars that you used to brag about to your friends on the playground, can now make you feel self-conscious. If you have a scar on or around your eyelid, it can be hard to disguise even with makeup. Luckily, with eyelid scar revision surgery from Dr. Daniel Tresley, you can get rid of your scar and gain back your self-esteem in no time. Read on to learn more.

What Is Eyelid Scar Revision Surgery?

The skin around your eyes is extremely sensitive and can be easily damaged— that’s why Dr. Daniel Tresley uses specialized scar revision surgical methods. Depending on the location and type of injury that you have, Dr. Tresley may recommend one of the following scar removal procedures:

  • Surgical Excision
  • Skin Grafts
  • Flap Surgery
  • Z-plastic

What Is Recovery Like?

The type of procedure that is used will indicate what your recovery will look like. However, because none of these methods are too invasive, your recovery should be relatively speedy. On average, you can expect to wear a bandage over your eye for a day or two as it heals which means that you won’t be able to drive or operate any heavy machinery. Once your bandage is removed, you will need to clean the area and apply the necessary medication as prescribed by Dr. Tresley.

What Are Results Like?

The results from scar revision surgery can vary based on what type of procedure Dr. Daniel Tresley used. However, as his top priority, Dr. Tresley will work to make sure that you get the best results possible and that your scar isn’t detectable. Remember that depending on the type of injury that caused the scar, the size and location of the scar, and your skin coloring, you may need more time to heal afterward.

If you have a scar on or around your eyelid that you would like to have removed, contact Dr. Daniel Tresley today! By offering a variety of removal procedures, you can gain back your confidence in no time.

3 Things to Figure Out Before Eyelid Surgery

BlepharoplastyDroopy Dog may be an endearing cartoon character but droopiness is not a trait that you want to have. If you have a droopy upper eyelid, a droopy lower eyelid, or both, then you may be the ideal candidate for blepharoplasty. By removing the excess skin on, above, or around the eyelid that is causing you to experience droopiness, blepharoplasty will help you to look and feel like a normal human once again. Whether you have already scheduled your blepharoplasty appointment or if you are still considering getting it done, here are a few things to button up before you undergo surgery.

Insurance

Depending on the root of your droopy eyelids and your need for eyelid surgery, some insurance companies will pay for a part of your eyelid surgery. For instance, if your droopy eyelids are causing some interference with your ability to see, then they may pay for a portion of the procedure. Whereas if you are getting the surgery done just for cosmetic purposes, then they likely won’t cover any of it.

Recovery

Before you undergo your blepharoplasty surgery, make sure that you make appropriate arrangements with your work regarding your recovery. Recovery from this type of eyelid surgery typically takes a few weeks. And during the first few days of recovery, it is recommended that you give your eyes plenty of rest so that they can properly heal. Although you won’t need to take the entire two weeks off of work to recover, taking a few days off will help to ensure that you recover properly and smoothly.

A Ride Home

Because you are going to be having surgeries on your eyes, it is recommended that you find a ride home after surgery. Remember that your eyes will typically be bandaged up for a few days following surgery, so you will need to plan ahead and find someone else to bring you home.

Preparing ahead of time for blepharoplasty will help you to feel much more relaxed following your surgery. To learn more about blepharoplasty and other tips regarding surgery, contact Dr. Daniel Tresley today!
