Case #3 Before & After
Aesthetic eyelid surgery is performed on adults of all ages. Some people have eyelid surgery to correct problems that are a result of aging, while others have inherited traits that cause them to seek treatment as early as their 20’s or 30’s.
Eyelid surgery (technically called blepharoplasty) is a procedure to remove fat – usually along with excess skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – features that make you look older and more tired than you feel, and may even interfere with your vision. However, it won’t remove crow’s feet or other wrinkles, eliminate dark circles under your eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows. While it can add an upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes, it will not erase evidence of your ethnic or racial heritage. Blepharoplasty can be done alone, or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or browlift.

Please ask Dr. David Williamson uses Vectra imaging to stimulate posible surgical outcome about anything you don’t understand.
Complications can include infection, ectropion, tearing, visual scaring or difficulty closing the eyes. Blindness is extremely uncommon but possible and is usually the result of significant bleeding after surgery. If you are experiencing severe eye pain and or significant bleeding contact your doctor immediately and/or go to the Emergency department.
To consider: Mild swelling persists for several weeks in some cases while others see swelling resolved in just seven days. Bruising is gone in most people in seven to ten days and makeup maybe used to conceal the signs of surgery. However it should not be placed over the incisions in the first 2 weeks.
You may find your eyes are temporarily sensitive to light. You may also experience some excess tearing or dryness. Dr. David Williamson uses Vectra imaging to stimulate posible surgical outcome may recommend eye drops to relieve burning or itching. You may want to wear dark sunglasses for a couple of weeks to protect your eyes from the wind and sun.
The incision lines will fade over several months.
