Did you know that Eyelid Surgery is also called Blepharoplasty? Here is a low down on more interesting facts about eyelid surgery.
1. The procedure is ranked number 2 in cosmetic surgery popularity
Eyelid surgery is a procedure that, in the year 2013, was performed more than 0.2 million times, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. This procedure is just behind rhinoplasty. This number had also seen a rise of 6% from the number of surgeries in the year before that.
2. Procedures for Lower and Upper Lids can be performed Simultaneously
The procedure will often depend on the need of the patient and some patients might not need surgery performed on both of their eye lids. However, those people that do require one can have it at the same time during the same surgical procedure without having to wait for one eye lid to heal.
3. It is Much More than A cosmetic Solution
Typically, people make use of eyelid surgery to get rid of the sagging skin and the excess fat that has assembled in and around the eye area and to tighten the skin for a more youthful, renewed appearance. However, in essence, an upper eye lid surgery can lift and tighten the eyelid skin that has dropped down and started to obstruct the visual field of the person. This procedure can therefore be said to improve peripheral vision as well as beauty.
4. The Scars are typically concealed
The eye lid both upper and lower is a very complex area to operate on thus you should go to a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like Dr. John A. Kotis. Their surgical skill is an art and requires much training to competently perform any Facial Surgery. Incisions made during this surgery are made in a way that once the incision heals and the scar fades over time it becomes completely indiscernible.
5. The results continue to bear fruit for a year
Once you have undergone the eyelid surgery, you will have a visible difference immediately. In most cases, it takes up to a year for the scar to heal and for the swelling to go down and achieve the final appearance that you want.
