What is Eyelid Surgery?

Considering blepharoplasty in Ft Myers, FL either an upper eyelid surgery or lower eyelid surgery? Contact Audrey Farahmand, female board certified plastic surgeon. Eyelid surgery is also known as blepharoplasty. It corrects drooping upper eyelids and the puffy bags or puffiness under the eyes. It also helps smooth the fine lines of the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery does not correct crow’s feet. It is a typical surgical procedure, incisions are made following the natural lines of your eyelids; in the creases of your upper lids, and just below the lashes in the lower lids. Working through these incisions, the skin is separated from underlying fatty tissue and muscle, excess fat is removed, and sagging skin and muscle are removed and tightened. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures for a more youthful appearance.

If you have a pocket of fat beneath your eyelids but do not need to have any skin removed, a transconjunctival blepharoplasty may be performed. In this plastic surgery procedure, the incision is made inside your lower eyelid leaving no visible scar. It is usually performed on younger patients with thicker, more elastic skin.

Recovery in Fort Myers

Recovery PeriodDr. Farahmand advises patients to take it easy for a few weeks after eyelid surgery – blepharoplasty. This means no purposeful exercise or heavy lifting or performing house chores. Also, patients are advised not to bend over at the waist during this time (such as to pick something off the floor) as this can increase the blood pressure in the head and eyes. Sutures are removed around one week post-operatively. Swelling and bruising last for around two weeks although traces can persist after that timeframe. It is not uncommon to have blurred vision, double vision, or sensitivity to sunlight in the first two weeks after the eyelid surgery. These symptoms usually are gone after two weeks post-operatively.
