As you explore eyelid surgery in the Edmonton area, it can help to know what to expect every step of the way. At our plastic surgery practice in Calgary, we provide as much information as we can to make sure our eyelid surgery patients are informed and actively involved in their experience from the first consultation to the final follow-up.
In this blog post, we’ll share a bit more about what it’s like to prepare for, undergo, and recover from eyelid surgery—and to enjoy the rejuvenating results that follow.
Before Eyelid Surgery
During Eyelid Surgery
During upper eyelid surgery, your surgeon makes an incision along the natural crease of the eyelid to make sure any scarring is well disguised. Through that incision, your surgeon removes excess skin and tightens the muscle tissue to correct any drooping.
During lower eyelid surgery, your surgeon uses an incision either below the lower lash line or inside the lower eyelid to remove or reposition fat deposits that cause a puffy appearance.
After Eyelid Surgery
Returning to Work
Long-term scarring is very minimal and hidden along the natural creases of the eye. With the help of a qualified surgeon, you’ll enjoy younger-looking, more refreshed eyes without any obvious signs you’ve had a procedure.
