Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Are you troubled by loose or droopy skin, bags under your eyes, sagging fat deposits, wrinkles, or undereye hollows? Blepharoplasty can help you restore youthfulness to your most important feature. The best candidates are in good health and understand what the procedure’s outcome can do for them. Dr. Stile can explain in detail what techniques will enhance your unique features.
How Long is Recovery from Blepharoplasty?
An eyelid lift has one of the most effortless recovery periods of any cosmetic procedure. Patients may have bruising and swelling around the eyes initially, which typically resolve within a few days of your procedure. Medicated eye drops and ice packs can help relieve your discomfort, dry eyes, and any irritation you experience. You will need to rest with your head elevated to keep good circulation going.
Very often, patients return to work within 1 week. It is important to protect your eyes from the sun until they are fully healed. Dr. Stile will give you detailed aftercare instructions to follow.
What Results Can I Expect with Blepharoplasty?
Many patients are surprised at how such subtle changes to the tissues and skin around the eyes can produce such impressive results. Blepharoplasty is one of the most effective treatments to turn back the clock on signs of aging. Your eyelids will be smoother, and the application of makeup will be easier.
Patients are often thrilled with how refreshed they look and feel, even without their morning cup of coffee. For those with under eye bags, your skin will be tighter and without the puffiness that took its toll on your appearance. For patients with severe hooding of the upper lid, your peripheral vision may be improved now that there’s less obstructing your view, and without that excess weight, you may feel less fatigued at the end of the day. Having blepharoplasty with Dr. Stile really is an eye-opening experience.
