Is Eyelid Surgery Right for Me?


The thought of any type of surgery is enough to make many people shudder in fear. After all, invasive procedures can be intimidating to even the most confident individual. Things become even more challenging when imagining surgery around the eyes. After all, such a delicate and important part of the body must be treated with care. So, it makes sense that, if you have heard of eyelid surgery, you may have questions as to whether it is right for you. Fortunately, we are here to help explain, so you can make an informed decision.

What is Eyelid Surgery?

Known in the medical world as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is a procedure that is used to remove unnecessary fat and skin around the eyes. This procedure is effective at addressing concerns with the upper and lower lids that can make an individual appear overly tired and weathered. So, whether you have sagging upper eyelids or puffy bags beneath the eyes, ultimately, a successful eyelid surgery will brighten your face, making you appear more alert and engaged.

Who is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

The good news is that blepharoplasty is suitable for a wide range of individuals. Men and women alike can benefit from the procedure, and the impacts that it can have on both personal and professional life. Depending on the type of procedure you select, the recovery time can take one to two weeks, and could include swelling, bruising and minimal pain.

Although many individuals are worried that their results will look artificial or give them a facial expression that is artificially surprised, this is never something you will have to worry about when you work with Beaux Arts Institute of Plastic Surgery. Under the guidance of Dr. Nia Banks, you can rest assured that every eyelid surgery is completed with the utmost care, so that you receive results you can be proud of.
