During a blepharoplasty, excess skin and fat are trimmed away from the eyelids. Depending on your aesthetic needs, you can either get your lower or upper eyelids lifted; you can also get a combination.
After the blepharoplasty procedure, regardless of which eyelids are getting lifted, the incision(s) will be closed using medical sutures or surgical tape. If sutures are used, they can sometimes be dissolvable; in this case, you will not have to visit the surgeon to get them taken out at any point.
The blepharoplasty procedure is very safe and will be performed with a great deal of attention given to your comfort and well-being. Learn more from a visit to our office.
