What to Expect from Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Before and After PhotosIt is quite obvious that before you decide to undergo blepharoplasty, you would like to know what to expect after the surgery. This is why eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) before and after photos can be so important. However, you need to be prepared as every surgical procedure can look a bit unpleasant right after the procedure is complete. Your doctor should be honest with you and show you different photos depicting the stages of recovery after surgery and the improvement in the looks of the patient.

Before the eyelid surgery

Photos taken immediately after the procedure will show swelling and redness around the site of surgery. This should progressively reduce once as time passes and your plastic surgeon should show you these photos too. Comparing the photos taken after the procedure and the ones taken before should show you exactly what the doctor has changed and how surgery has helped improve abnormalities as well as defects around the eyes. Before you undergo the surgery make sure to take pictures of your face and eyes and also document your recovery after the surgery to understand what has been changed. This will also help you show the doctor what you are happy and even unhappy with if you want additional blepharoplasty procedures.

Whether you are in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas or Warrenton; Dr Trang Vo-Nguyen can ensure that your eyelid surgery does not involve any untoward complications and risks. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Before and After Photos
