Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Surgery
Upper eye lid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a procedure used to remove excess skin on the upper eyelids, improving the appearance of the eyes. Eyes are the focal point of your face, and they works as a most essential feature in expressing yourself. Extra drooping skin on your eyelids can lead to a dull and tired appearance.
At La Santé Medispa, we offer eye lid surgery performed by the highly skilled Dr. Soliman. He is an expert in the procedure and is well equipped with a variety of techniques to remove the sagging skin and leave you looking brighter and more youthful.
Are you ready for the Eyelid Surgery ?
We offer a complementary consultation with Dr. Soliman who can assess your concerns and determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure.
What is involved?
The procedure is a day surgery performed using a local anaesthetic. It encompasses the removal of the excess skin, and the suturing of the eyelid. The suture (stitch) is expertly placed in the fold of the eye, making it less noticeable. It is removed after two days at your follow up appointment. The skin then heals over a period of up to six weeks, during which time the scarring is minimal. There is only mild discomfort felt during and after the procedure, with a basic analgesic medication necessary if discomfort persists. We advise that you may return to work once the stitches are removed. Eyelid surgery will not drastically alter your appearance; rather will offer a brighter and more youthful appearance.
Is there any side effect of Eyelid Surgery?
Similarly to any procedure, there are risks involved in eyelid surgery. These may include the following transient side effects: swelling, bruising, dry or itchy eyes, watery eyes and sensitivity to light and wind. Wearing sunglasses and applying cold ointments, gauze and cold compresses can help relieve these side effects.
What is the Cost of Eyelid surgery?
