What is blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can restore a youthful appearance to the eye area. The upper and lower eyelids are lifted and loose or excess skin and fat tissue are removed from the eye area.
What should first be done before considering blepharoplasty?
Before the procedures, an ASDS dermatologist wil review the patients medical history and outcomes of the procedure. The doctor also will test the patient's vision and his or her ability to produce tears. Prior to the procedure, patients should:
- Avoid smoking.
- Avoid medications, food and beverages indicated by the doctor.
- Arrange for transportation home following the procedure.
