Eyelid surgery can do wonders for anyone suffering from heavy, drooping eyelids. If your eyelids feel heavy, impair your vision, or make you look more tired than you feel, you may be an excellent candidate for eyelid surgery. By eliminating the excess skin and fat deposits collected around your eyes, this procedure creates a refreshed, youthful appearance.
Eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids. The incision is placed along the natural crease of the eyelid to eliminate noticeable scarring. Eyelid surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, and usually takes one to three hours. Bruising and swelling can be expected to last from seven to 10 days after the surgery. After your eyelids completely heal, you will enjoy a younger, more animated appearance. For more information, contact Dr. Aric Eckhardt today.
