Is cosmetic eyelid surgery right for you? It can be, if you do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.
With this surgical procedure, Plastic Surgery Northwest in Spokane can improve the appearance of your upper eyelids, your lower eyelids — or both. Perhaps your upper eyelids are impairing your vision and you need their natural contour restored. Or, you might want a bulging appearance of the lower eyelids smoothed out. With a rejuvenated appearance in the area of your eyes, you can look more rested and alert. We routinely perform this surgery for adult men and women who have realistic goals for their eyelid improvements. Read More
We will help to understandthe nature of your goals during our candid consultation. You’ll be asked about your health, lifestyle, and why you want the surgery. After our discussion of your options, we will recommend a technique for improving the appearance of your eyelids that will obtain the best outcome for you. The particular procedure recommended will depend on many factors such as the amount of skin or fat in your eyelid areas and the position of your eyebrows. Once your procedure is completed, you will continue to be closely monitored. You might experience blurry vision temporarily, as is normal after surgeries around the eye. You may also have worsening of dry eye symptoms, such as eye irritation or tearing temporarily. However, you will likely have surprisingly little discomfort from your surgery itself. You will be able to resume most of your normal activities two to three weeks of your procedure.
Your final results will appear within several weeks. While you can expect your eyelid improvements to be permanent from your surgery, you will continue to age naturally. Using lifelong sun protection and a good skin care regimen will help you to maintain your results.
