Things You cannot Miss about Blepharoplasty
Would you like more youthful looking eyes? The popularity and number of blepharoplasty or eyelid lift procedures have grown in the last years. It is certainly one of the most popular methods. Eyelid lifts can dramatically improve the look of the face and enhance the confidence of a person. Read things you need to know if you consider this procedure.
Eyelid surgery is a popular cosmetic operation. Eyelid surgery addresses a large range of problems from the reduction of bags under the eyes to the correction of sluggish skin and fine wrinkles. It gives you a refreshing and younger look without clear signs of operation. Eyelid surgery helps restore your natural appearance and makes the skin around your eyes smoother and firmer.
Three distinctly different types of surgery are available and depending on the shape of your eyes, and other health conditions the procedure you will need can be different. Our blepharoplasty specialist in OKC will advise one of these three types:
Upper Eyelid Surgery - This blepharoplasty type is used mainly because of aging or genetics to increase visual range and the appearance of the eye. As the name suggests, the upper eyelid is the focus. This type of surgery can either restore your eye's function or provide a more open, rounded look.
Lower Eyelid Surgery - It focuses on removing skin wrinkles, correcting baggy eyes or improving appearance by removing the sagginess of your eye lid.
Double Eyelid Surgery - Both eyelids are addressed in a double optic procedure, which creates a more youthful look across the whole eye. This is the most widely-referenced procedure of blepharoplasty in general.
We can share with you some essential considerations before scheduling the procedure, which we always discuss with every eyelid operation.
Research - It is important that you do not rush into the decision when you consider blepharoplasty in OKC. Come to our specialists with years of experience in facial plastic surgery in OKC. If your choice of the inexperienced plastic surgeon and the results of your revision process are complicated or unsatisfactory, it can be very expensive with another surgeon–not all surgical errors can be fixed.
Men or Women Both Can Do It - Improving the eyelids is one of the most common plastic operations for men. Eyes frequently show signs of aging and can make people look tired more than they feel by developing wrinkles and drooping eyelids. The procedure can be adapted to a male face by an experienced plastic surgeon, ensuring that results look natural, young, but still masculine.
Faster Recovery - If you don't wear eye makeup or contact lenses, swelling will go down faster. For the first one to two weeks, most surgeons recommend avoiding make-up and contact lenses. Two weeks after the procedure will help prevent irritation and ensure that the area of the incision heals. You should also try not to touch your eyes because this may cause irritation, inflammation and even infection (rarely).
Have Patience - Wait for full results for one year. Be patient. It is only natural that you focus on the after-operative results, but you must be healed fully to see the true new look. After-op swelling will obscure real results for a few months. At different rates, the eyes can heal, resulting in a slightly asymmetric look until healing is complete. Try to remain positive during this time; it's all worth it, eventually.
