Read this before Getting an Eyelid Surgery

by David Shifrin MD

Would you like more youthful looking eyes? The popularity and number of blepharoplasty or eyelid lift procedures have grown in the last years. It is certainly one of the most popular methods. Eyelid lifts can dramatically improve the look of the face and enhance the confidence of a person.

Eyelid surgery is a popular cosmetic operation. Eyelid surgery addresses a large range of problems from the reduction of bags under the eyes to the correction of sluggish skin and fine wrinkles. It gives you a refreshing and younger look without clear signs of operation. Eyelid surgery helps restore your natural appearance and makes the skin around your eyes smoother and firmer.

Here I am sharing with you some essential considerations before scheduling the procedure, which we always discuss with every eyelid operation.

Research

It is important that you do not rush into the decision when you consider eyelid surgery in Chicago. Choose the specialists that has years of experience in facial plastic surgery in Chicago. If your choice of the inexperienced plastic surgeon and the results of your revision process are complicated or unsatisfactory, it can be very expensive with another surgeon–not all surgical errors can be fixed.

The recovery process is fast

If you don't wear eye makeup or contact lenses, swelling will go down faster. For the first one to two weeks, most surgeons recommend avoiding make-up and contact lenses. Two weeks after the procedure will help prevent irritation and ensure that the area of the incision heals. You should also try not to touch your eyes because this may cause irritation, inflammation and even infection.

Both men and women can do it

Improving the eyelids is one of the most common plastic operations for men. Eyes frequently show signs of aging and can make people look tired more than they feel by developing wrinkles and drooping eyelids. The procedure can be adapted to a male face by an experienced plastic surgeon, ensuring that results look natural, young, but still masculine.

Have patience

Wait for full results for one year. Be patient. It is only natural that you focus on the after-operative results, but you must be healed fully to see the true new look. After-op swelling will obscure real results for a few months. At different rates, the eyes can heal, resulting in a slightly asymmetric look until healing is complete. Try to remain positive during this time; it's all worth it, eventually.

So, these are some of the things that you should know about Chicago eyelid surgery. Once you have gone through this article, you all set for the eyelid surgery. Good Luck!
