Eyelid Surgery Procedure
During eyelid surgery, excess eyelid skin and fat are removed and the eyelid area is smoothed, creating a more vibrant, alert expression. Both upper and lower eyelids may benefit from eyelid surgery. The procedure may be performed under local anesthesia with sedation and – when it is a stand-alone procedure – on an outpatient basis. Bruising and swelling will last for approximately one week, becoming progressively minimal.
Eyelid Surgery Results
Results from eyelid surgery generally last for years, enabling patients to enjoy a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Patients can combine eyelid surgery with other facial procedures offered at our practice located near Elkton, Maryland, such as a brow lift, face lift, neck lift, or even BOTOX® Cosmetic and Restylane® injections.
