Procedure Details

When it comes to eyelid surgery, there are three distinct kinds: upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, and double eyelid surgery. The procedure you will require will vary depending on the shape of your eyes and other health conditions. Be sure to speak with your surgeon about your desired results during your consultation so an individualized treatment plan can be created.

Possible Side Effects

Before undergoing any type of surgery, it is important to understand and possible side effects. The most important aspect of this surgery to keep in mind is that it will take time to see final results. Side effects may include bruising, swelling, or scarring of the eye area. Temporary double vision or blindness may also occur, as well as eye itchiness and dryness. However, these effects are temporary and will fade with time.
