Eyelid Surgery Resolves Vision Problems Caused By Excess Skin

Eyelid Surgery Resolves Vision ProblemsMen and women usually have eyelid surgery for cosmetic reasons. However, the procedure also resolves sagging upper eyelids which mar vision, allowing the patient to see well.

How an Eyelift Improves Vision

Ageing makes your eyelids stretch and the supportive muscles become weaker. Fat may collect above and below your eyelids, resulting in droopy upper lids and bags under your eyes. When the skin around the eyes sags considerably, the upper and outer areas of your field of vision could get affected and it would be more difficult to see. Eyelid surgery, which is usually performed for cosmetic reasons, offers an added benefit – it can resolve vision problems as it involves removing the excess skin on the upper eyelids.

What Blepharoplasty Involves

In the traditional method, the incision is made so that the scar stays hidden within the natural fold of the eyelid. After the excess tissue is removed, the incisions are closed with tiny stitches. More stable than traditional eyelid surgery, laser blepharoplasty involves no visible scar in the lower eyelid and assures quick results with minimal discomfort, downtime, and shorter recovery.

The surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis. It may be done under a local or general anesthesia, depending on the method used. If an eyebrow lift is also performed, the procedure can take longer.

You may experience some blurring of vision for some time after surgery, but will get better within two or three days. Some swelling, bruising and pain are typical, and complete recovery can take up to four weeks. During this time, it is important to follow the surgeon’s instructions on medication and protect the eyes from harsh sunlight.

Innovative Upper Eyelid Surgery Technique

Blepharoplasty improves vision and results in a fresh, more youthful appearance. Improved systems such as Cynosure’s state-of-the-art Smart Skin laser are ideal for upper eyelid rejuvenation. This procedure is virtually pain-free and can also result in naturally arched eyebrows and long, thick eyelashes.
