Kansas City Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

blepharoplasty kansas city patientsEyelid surgery, technically known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic, surgical procedure performed on the eyelids. The surgery is performed to reduce excess, drooping, or sagging skin around the eyes to improve symmetry of the eyes, reduce the look of aging, and reduce the look of puffiness or tiredness. Since the plastic surgeon “lifts” and reduces facial sagging, the procedure is also sometimes referred to as an “eyelid lift.” In our Kansas City plastic surgery clinic we perform blepharoplasty on the upper eyelids, lower eyes, and both together.

Blepharoplasty Specifications

During the eyelid surgery, an incision will be made into the  natural crease of the upper eyelid. The underlying muscles and tissue are tightened, fat deposits are repositioned or removed, and excess skin is removed. If the lower eyelid is also involved, a second incision will be made lower to perform the same objectives.

After surgery, patients will typically experience swelling, bruising, irritation, and dry eye. Discomfort or pain can be controlled with pain reliever/medication, cold compression, and topical skin medications. Patients will need to someone to drive them to and from the surgery. Healing typically takes 5 to 10 days. Patients are also allowed to resume wearing contact lenses after this time.

Mommy Makeover Information

Mommy makeovers are a type of plastic surgery that combines breast augmentation surgery and tummy tuck surgery and other plastic surgery procedures into one single operation, saving women the added stress of having multiple surgeries at different times. Mommy makeovers can help address the unwanted side affects of pregnancy and restore more youthful body contours.
