What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a transformative cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes. This versatile surgery addresses various concerns related to both the upper and lower eyelids. For the upper eyelids, it focuses on removing excess skin that may cause hooding or a tired appearance. Additionally, it can correct sagging or displaced fat pads. Lower eyelid surgery primarily targets puffiness and under-eye bags, creating a more refreshed and youthful look. Whether you seek to regain a well-rested appearance or wish to enhance the natural beauty of your eyes, eyelid surgery can be tailored to your specific needs, providing you with results that radiate confidence and vitality.

Is Eyelid Surgery Right for Me?

Eyelid surgery is a procedure designed to address specific concerns related to the eyelids and overall facial appearance. It is an ideal choice for individuals who may be experiencing issues such as sagging or excess skin on the upper eyelids, which can sometimes impair vision or create a tired appearance. Additionally, if you have puffiness, bags, or wrinkles on the lower eyelids that contribute to a fatigued look, eyelid surgery can provide a solution.

During a consultation, Dr. Micallef can assess your individual needs and provide expert guidance on whether eyelid surgery is the right choice for you based on your unique goals and anatomy.

The Eyelid Surgery Process What to Expect

Your journey to rejuvenated and refreshed eyelids begins with a comprehensive consultation at Micallef Plastic Surgery. During this initial step, you'll have the opportunity to discuss your specific concerns and goals with Dr. Micallef, who will carefully evaluate your eyelids, taking into account factors like skin quality, muscle tone, and fat distribution.

Once your customized surgical plan is established, the procedure itself is typically performed on an outpatient basis. Local anesthesia, along with sedation or general anesthesia, will ensure your comfort throughout the surgery.

For upper eyelid surgery, incisions are discreetly made within the natural creases of the eyelids, allowing for minimal scarring. For lower eyelid surgery, incisions are typically made just below the lash line or inside the lower eyelid.

Dr. Micallef then addresses specific concerns, which may include removing excess skin, repositioning fat, and tightening muscles and tissues. The goal is to create a harmonious and refreshed appearance that aligns with your unique facial features.

Eyelid Surgery Recovery

Following your eyelid surgery in San Antonio, it's natural to experience some initial side effects, including swelling and bruising. These effects are typically manageable and tend to subside within the first week or so. You may need to apply cold compresses and keep your head elevated to reduce swelling.

Most patients can return to light activities within a week, although strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few weeks.

As your healing progresses, you'll notice the rejuvenating results gradually emerging. The full benefits of your eyelid surgery become more apparent over time, revealing a more youthful and refreshed appearance. With diligent care and adherence to post-operative instructions, you can enjoy the long-term results of your eyelid surgery, including brighter, more alert eyes that harmonize beautifully with your overall facial aesthetics.
