3 Things To Know Before Getting Eyelid Surgery

before and after eyelid surgery

The eyes are one of the first places to show signs of aging. Upper eyelids become hooded, droopy, and even asymmetrical. Meanwhile, lower eyelids get puffy, wrinkled, and develop stubborn bags. These changes can make you look older and give off a tired or angry impression. Fortunately, eyelid surgery offers an effective way to address these concerns. Here are three things you should know if you are thinking about booking blepharoplasty in Baltimore.

1. It Is Highly Customizable

Eyelid surgery is not one size fits all. There are several different variations and techniques. For example, an upper blepharoplasty may be appropriate if you are only concerned about excess, drooping upper eyelid skin. Meanwhile, a lower blepharoplasty could make more sense if your main goal is to address sagging and puffiness below your eyes. These two options can also be combined for the most comprehensive results. Dr. Schuster will help select the right approach.

2. You Can Combine It With Other Surgeries

It is possible to achieve transformative results through eyelid surgery alone. However, it also pairs well with other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as an eyebrow lift or a facelift.

Combining your blepharoplasty with an eyebrow lift can open up your eyes while smoothing away forehead wrinkles and raising a heavy brow. Meanwhile, complimenting your blepharoplasty with a facelift will help take years off your appearance for a more youthful and vibrant look.

3. It Is Possible To Have Eyelid Surgery Without Any External Scars

Many patients are concerned about visible scarring after eyelid surgery. Fortunately, the incisions used for this procedure are very small, and they are hidden in creases and folds. It is even possible to have lower eyelid surgery without any external scars. The transconjunctival approach is performed from within the inside of the eyelid to remove bulges beneath the eye.
