Top 5 Benefits of Oculoplastic Surgery

The skin around your eyes is especially delicate and susceptible to environmental damage. If you have noticed signs of aging, such as drooping eyelids, puffy undereye bags, or even excess skin that obscures your vision, oculoplastic surgery can help. This procedure corrects loose eyelid skin and other signs of aging to restore a youthful, alert appearance and clearer vision.

What is Oculoplastic Surgery (Eyelid Surgery)?

As your comprehensive eye care team, your Vold Vision eye surgeons understand that signs of aging around the eyes can affect your confidence and make you look tired. At the same time, sagging eyelid skin can even start to block your vision. Oculoplastic surgery, also known as eyelid surgery, blepharoplasty, or an eyelid lift, can be a cosmetic procedure, a functional one, or a combination of the two. 

Top 5 Benefits of Oculoplastic Surgery

Oculoplastic or eyelid surgery has a number of benefits that make it a popular cosmetic and functional procedure. Unlike eyelid surgery performed by a plastic surgeon, our ophthalmologists (medical doctors who specialize in eye care) provide a deep knowledge of eye area anatomy that helps them achieve your best results. 

Restores Your Vision

The primary functional reason people have oculoplastic surgery is loose or sagging eyelid skin that blocks part of their vision. This is a fairly common problem, and since it develops over time, you may not even notice it until your eye doctor points it out. However, you will definitely notice the difference when your full range of vision is restored. 

Tightens Drooping Eyelids

Drooping upper eyelids can make you look fatigued or even sad. Eyelid surgery can lift and tighten loose skin and remove or reposition fat pads to create a smoother, more youthful appearance. People may notice that you look more alert and bright-eyed. 

Corrects Undereye Bags

Puffiness, dark shadows, and undereye bags can give the skin under your eyes a tired, drooping appearance. Oculoplastic surgery can tighten loose skin and muscles while repositioning fat to eliminate bags and help you look refreshed

Helps You Look Rejuvenated

Many people find that oculoplastic surgery rejuvenates their entire face and gives them an overall brighter, more energized appearance. Eyelid surgery is one of the most effective procedures you can have to look more youthful with a few small incisions and a short recovery time. 

Performed By Eye Surgeons

At Vold Vision, blepharoplasty is performed by eye surgeons. These surgeons have extensive knowledge about the anatomy and structures of the eye area. This skill set allows them to maximize results while minimizing the potential risks.

What is Recovery Like After Oculoplastic Surgery?

You can expect some soreness and swelling in the area after your procedure. We will recommend cold compresses to reduce swelling and discomfort as well as providing pain medication. Sleeping with your head elevated will also reduce swelling. Most people return to work after one to two weeks, depending on how much swelling they still have. You can start applying makeup after one week and return to most of your usual activities after three weeks. Attend your follow-up appointments so your eye surgeon can monitor your progress. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Oculoplastic Surgery?

Oculoplastic surgery is a safe, effective way to restore a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Good candidates for this procedure want to address concerns such as drooping eyelids, undereye bags, or blocked vision. Candidates should have reasonable expectations and understand the risks and benefits. People with certain medical conditions might not be recommended for eyelid surgery. 

What Results Will I See After Eyelid Surgery?

You will notice a difference immediately after your eyelid surgery. However, you will not see your full results until a week or two later as the swelling fades. Your results may continue to evolve and improve for up to a few months. Like any cosmetic procedure, the results of oculoplastic surgery are long-lasting but not permanent. Your eyes will continue to experience signs of aging but will still look younger than they would have without the surgery. 

Very clean place nice people the nurses are wonderful, and the eye doctor answers all questions and explains anything needed and it’s a very clean and safe place, I recommend this place by far.
