Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Recovery Northern Virginia | FairfaxEyelid surgery refers to the process of removal of loose or saggy skin around the eye. The beauty of the eyes often starts to lose its charm as one starts to age. This aging process causes lose folds of skin that make the eye appear droopy and heavy-lidded. In extreme cases these loose folds of skin can even impair vision. Thankfully, due to the latest medical advancements made in the field of plastic surgery, it is possible to successfully remove the excess skin or fat from the eyelids through eyelid surgery called blepharoplasty.

The road to recovery

The popularity of blepharoplasty is mainly because of its short recovery time. Most patients ease back into their routine seven to ten days post the surgery. Initially, in some cases, swelling, bruising, irritation and dryness may be observed. Ointments and medications will be prescribed to treat the same.

The results will be visible after several weeks, but it may take up to a year for the incisions to fade out completely. While blepharoplasty vouches for the removal of certain conditions permanently, aging is  is inevitable. Life-long sun protection is necessary to maintain the results of the surgery.
