Men and women unhappy with the appearance of their eyes can ask about the benefits of blepharoplasty.
What is blepharoplasty?
Dr. Armen Serebrakian uses the term “blepharoplasty” to refer to any procedure of the eyes. This may include the upper or lower eyelids. Upper eyelids tend to sag with age, sometimes even impacting one’s field of vision. The lower eyelids may be corrected due to a tired appearance, including bags underneath. With surgical interventions from Dr. Armen Serebrakien, patients can find solutions that work best for their unique needs. The blepharoplasty is just one of several facial surgeries available at his state-of-the-art practice.
What can I expect from blepharoplasty procedures?
Patients who are interested in undergoing this procedure will want to ask their doctor about what to epect afterwards. Eyelid surgery is still a surgical procedure and needs to managed appropriately post-operatively to reduce the risk of infection and other complications. Patients will be advised to apply lubricating drops into the eyes every day to aid healing, and avoid returning to work for a few days after their procedure. Stressful activities and exercise should be avoided for a few weeks, during which many patients can ease back into their normal lifestyles. Patients can expect swelling and redness in the area, along with some mild bruising and discomfort which can often be maintained appropriately with over-the-counter pain medications. During the recovery time, patients will want to avoid using contact lenses and be careful of the sensitive skin around the eyes.
