What Are the Benefits of Laser Blepharoplasty?

December 21, 2016

Blepharoplasty (also known as an eyelid lift) is a surgical procedure
that’s used to remove fatty tissue and sagging skin from the eyelids. Blepharoplasty can address cosmetic and physical issues associated with sagging skin, fatty bulges, and drooping around both your upper and lower lids.

Although a traditional blepharoplasty procedure can provide significant cosmetic benefits for patients, it can also be followed by prolonged recovery times and side effects. That’s why you need to know about laser blepharoplasty at The Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery in Guilford, CT!

What Is a Laser Blepharoplasty Procedure?

In a traditional blepharoplasty procedure a scalpel is used to make incisions along the folds of the eyelids; in a laser blepharoplasty the CO2 laser is used instead of a scalpel to make the same incisions. Both tools allow the cosmetic surgeon to access the fatty tissue causing puffy eyelids and to remove excess saggy skin. The big difference is that the CO2 laser actually seals the abundant small blood vessels in the eyelids, resulting in greatly reduced bruising and swelling. The conventional scalpel procedure can cause severe “black eyes” and swelling that can take two or more weeks to resolve. In contrast, CO2 laser blepharoplasty patients generally look good within one week of the procedure.

Only the CO2 laser blepharoplasty procedure reduces the amount of recovery time associated with the treatment. At the Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery in Guilford, CT, board certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Robert Langdon has extensive experience (since 1995) with CO2 laser blepharoplasty. Dr. Langdon’s patients spend less time in recovery — and more time enjoying the results of their procedure!
