Oklahoma Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Procedure:
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, rejuvenates the appearance of sagging, wrinkled, or puffy upper or lower eyelid skin, and creates a more youthful and rested look. It can also recreate the look of an upper eyelid crease when the natural one has faded over time. By removing excess fat and skin, a blepharoplasty also can widen visual fields when a saggy upper eyelid has partially interfered with your vision.

Length of procedure:
About 1-3 hours

Anesthesia:
Sedation and local or general anesthesia

In/outpatient:
Outpatient

Risks:
Major complications are rare, though all surgical procedures may carry some degree of risk. Specific potential risks can’t be determined for any given individual until a doctor in Oklahoma has been able to meet with the patient to evaluate the situation and prior health conditions.

Notable potential risks include temporarily blurred vision, infection, bleeding, and occasionally temporary difficulty fully shutting the eyes.

Recovery:
Initial mild discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Application of eye makeup can be resumed once the sutures have been removed and contact lenses can usually be worn comfortably within 7-10 days.
Back to work: about 1-2 weeks
Strenuous activity: about 3 weeks
Final appearance: swelling should be completely gone in several weeks

Duration of results:
Several years, occasionally permanent
