Why Eyelid Surgery Might Be Right For You

Why Eyelid Surgery Might Be Right For You

July 12, 2019 ajcohenmd

As you age, your skin tends to naturally loosen and become more elastic. The skin around your eyes can create folds and start to sag, resulting in impaired vision. Simple eyelid surgery in Lakeview can solve this problem and make you look younger than ever. Learn about eyelid surgery and find out if you are a candidate.  

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery is a straightforward procedure to remove the excess skin and improve the appearance of your eyelids. It can be performed on the upper or lower areas and on one or both eyelids. This minimally invasive procedure is achieved in just two visits: the consultation and your actual surgery. 

Are You A Good Candidate? 

A good candidate has realistic goals and a positive mindset about the procedure. They are generally a healthy, non-smoker person with no existing medical conditions that impair healing. During the consultation, your doctor will also evaluate your eyes to ensure there are no serious complications that could affect the surgery. 

What Is The Recovery Like?

After your eyelid surgery in Lakeview, the doctor will prescribe medications to relieve recovering pain. You will have a few stitches in your eyelids, along with some redness, swelling or bruising in the surrounding area. Stitches will last for about 7 days and your eyelids should start looking normal and younger within 2 weeks. 

This procedure will restore your more youthful appearance and will improve your vision, allowing you to look and feel your best. Contact the office of Dr. Adam J. Cohen today to set up your eyelid surgery consultation in Lakeview.
