Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) by Surgeons in Columbus, Ohio
As we age, our skin looses elasticity and firmness and begins to sag. When this happens around our eyes a procedure called blepharoplasty may be performed to remove excess skin in the area. Many find it to be a great option to restore a more youthful and well-rested appearance. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) was the fourth most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedure performed last year according to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons 2006 statistics. The procedure many times is combined with a face lift for optimal cosmetic results.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) involves removing excess skin from the eyelids to give a more wide-eyed, well-rested, and youthful appearance. Talk with your plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure and about your surgical options.
Columbus Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Recovery
Blepharoplasty is usually an outpatient surgical procedure, but you will need to arrange postoperative recovery care. For the first 48-72 hours you can experience significant swelling and bruising which may impair your vision. You will need help getting to the bathroom, making meals, taking medication and with many other tasks. You may have stitches that will need to be removed in several days and will need transportation (which we provide) to your postoperative check-ups. Many patients avoid public places until the bruising and swelling subsides. At Columbus's Cosmetic Surgery Recovery Suites we understand the need for privacy, confidentiality, and discreteness and abide strictly to our confidentiality policy.
Rest assured you will enjoy a customized recovery as directed by your surgeon's postoperative instructions. For your safety, we request that for the first 48 hours you get up only with our assistance. Many surgeons request their patients ambulate to reduce the risk of blood clots and we will strictly abide by these instructions. However, we will monitor that you do not "over do it," which could lead to additional swelling and bruising and prolong your recovery.
Many prior blepharoplasty patients say they required a higher level of care than their friend or spouse was equipped to provide and recommend professional recovery.
