How Does a Blepharoplasty Work?
Because you have unique aesthetic goals, you can expect Dr. Langdon to design a customized blepharoplasty plan for you. He may recommend that your upper and eyelids are treated simultaneously or separately. Before the procedure, he will administer an anesthetic to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.
Because Dr. Langdon uses a laser instead of the traditional scalpel for blepharoplasty, you can expect significantly less bruising and swelling after your eyelid lift. You can use ice packs to minimize swelling; post-op pain is mild and requires only Tylenol as needed. You will be able to return to light activities within a few days of the procedure. While there will be a tiny scar on your upper lid, it will likely fade away in a few months. You won’t have to worry about any scarring at all on your lower lid.
