What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that is used to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both. It can treat loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid that can sometimes impair vision, along with fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids.

What to Expect

During your consultation, be prepared to discuss your surgical goals, current medications, previous surgeries, along with any medical conditions, drug allergies, previous medical treatments and specifically any problems you have had with your eyes. Our plastic surgeon will also evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors and recommend a course of treatment. Our surgeon will also discuss your surgery options, the likely outcomes of the surgery and any potential risks, and the type of anesthesia that will be used.

The Results

The results of eyelid surgery in Birmingham are designed to be long-lasting. While there usually is little major discomfort involved in this surgery, there is still downtime. But once you have fully recovered, you can enjoy the results of your procedure.
