Eyelid surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure in our on-site surgical suite. This procedure lasts 1 to 2 hours and is usually performed with the patient under local or IV sedation. Eyelid surgery is a highly detailed procedure that requires the surgeon to make careful incisions and corrections. The procedure may involve removing or repositioning fat, removing excess skin, and altering muscles. Incisions are very fine and hidden within the natural folds and creases of the eyelids.
Whether you want the latest non-surgical aesthetic procedures or you desire a relaxing day spa experience, CaloSpa® Rejuvenation Center is ready to serve you.
Healing rates after blepharoplasty vary from person to person. In general, expect temporary discomfort, tightness of the lids, or swelling. Temporary dryness of the eyes and burning may also occur. Bruising may last for 2 to 3 weeks.
Return to Work
Patients are typically ready to return to work in 7 to 10 days but should limit strenuous activity for 3 weeks or more.
Other Things to Know
Results from eyelid surgery are typically long-lasting. Although surgery will not halt the aging process, it will create a lasting improvement that continues to keep you looking younger than your chronological age.
