Eyelid surgery is performed in order to improve functional problems or the appearance. Rejuvenating the eyelids offers an esthetic improvement. Management of many different eyelid problems requires a surgical approach. GK Dermatology offers Weymouth MA eyelid surgery procedures.
Who Is A Candidate For Eyelid Surgery?
Healthy individuals that have no medical condition that can impair the healing, and those with a documented history of good healing are good candidates for eyelid surgery. Also, non-smokers and individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals.
Indications For Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is used to treat excess or sagging skin. Drooping upper eyelids may impair the vision while drooping lower eyelids reveal white below the iris. Additionally, eyelid surgery can improve fine lines, bags under the eyes, and puffiness caused by excess fatty deposits.
Eyelid Surgery Consultation
Your surgeon will review your general health status and medical/surgical history, with a focus on eye problems. Current medications and drug use will also be reviewed, and “before surgery” photos will be taken. A significant part of the Weymouth MA Eyelid Surgery consultation focuses on your surgical goals and eyelid surgery options. The surgeon will recommend a course of treatment, and review likely outcomes of eyelid surgery and any potential risks.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery
Immediately after your Weymouth MA eyelid surgery, cold compresses and healing ointment will be applied, and in some cases the eyes may be covered with gauzes. Initial healing will likely include swelling, some bruising, irritation or dry eyes, and discomfort. The surgeon will review the aftercare instructions and may prescribe medications that will reduce the risk of infection
