Aging isn’t always glamorous. In fact it can cause multiple parts of your body to sag that you didn’t even know could. If you suffer from saggy, droopy eyelids, and are having a difficulty doing things that you used to like putting on eye makeup, seeing without opening your eyes all the way, or any other sort of difficulty, it might be time to schedule an appointment for eyelid surgery. Read on to learn more about this surgery.
What is eyelid surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure in which the excess skin around your eyes will be tightened and lifted, giving you a more taut appearance and the ability to see perfectly once again. During this procedure, you will be given an effective local anesthesia in order to reduce the sensitivity of the area.
What is recovery like?
Due to its non-invasive nature, recovery from eyelid surgery tends to be fairly quick. Common symptoms afterwards include swelling, bruising, and even some sensitivity to things like touch. During the recovery time, your doctor will recommend that you apply cold compresses, prescribed lubricated ointment, and any sort of bandages or gauze to place directly over your eyes.
How Long Until I See Results?
Once the inflammation and bruising has subsided, you will start to notice drastic results. Things that used to be harder to see due to droopy eyelids or every day tasks like putting on eyeliner, are now much easier to do and won’t cause you any sort of struggle.
Don’t let droopy eyelids get you down. As one of the leading signs of old age, droopy eyelids can be a huge inconvenience. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today!
