If you have droopy eyelids with excess sagging skin or bags that make you look angry, sad, or tired, blepharoplasty – cosmetic eyelid surgery – may be the answer for you. Eyelid surgery has an impact on the entire face, often making patients look years younger. For this reason, blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures today.
At Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg, our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Heppe, Dr. Bautista, and Dr. Aflaki specialize in facial rejuvenation procedures like blepharoplasty for patients who are interested in a more youthful, alert appearance.
In some cases, Dermal Fillers may be able to accomplish what you want without surgery, especially if the problem is only in the lower lid area. Your cosmetic surgeon will discuss these options with you during your consultation.
What You Should Know about Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure at our fully accredited facility in Northern Virginia. Fat and/or excess skin is removed from the upper and lower lids. The results can improve the effects of genetics, aging, and environmental exposure by correcting drooping lids and removing puffy eye bags.
The incisions are made in the creases of your eyelids or inside the lower lid so that scars will remain hidden. While the procedure is very safe, eyelid surgery is very delicate. It’s important to work with board certified professionals like those at Plastic Surgery Services of Fredericksburg to ensure the best results.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery
While some swelling and bruising can be expected after eyelid surgery for a period of 10-14 days, most patients are surprised by how easy it is to recover from the procedure. The majority of people return to work and normal activities within two weeks.
