eyelid surgery


eyelid surgery Eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove fat (usually along with excess skin and muscle) from the upper and lower eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be done alone, or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift or browlift, also referred to as a forehead lift.

Dr. Saieh will give you specific instructions on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating and drinking, to avoid smoking, and taking or avoiding some vitamins and certain medications. Please stop, at least two weeks before surgery, all prescription and non-prescription herbal-like vitamins, diet pills, energizers, stimulants and appetite suppressants either bought in the USA or a foreign country, i.e. Mexico, etc. Bring them to the office and tell Dr. Saieh about them. Do not take Aspirin or Ibuprofen or any other related anti-inflammatory products for a period of three (3) weeks prior to surgery and four (4) weeks after surgery, because they can cause increased bleeding. To take Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is okay. If you are a smoker, you will be asked to stop smoking well in advance of surgery.

The surgeries are done as outpatient surgery which means the patient is in and out of the hospital on the same day.

Eyelid Surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia which numbs the area around your eyes, along with oral or intravenous sedatives.

Working through the incisions, Dr. Saieh separates the skin from the underlying fatty tissue and muscle, removes excess fat, and often trims sagging skin and muscle. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures.

Dr. Saieh will instruct you to keep your head elevated for several days, and to use cold compresses to reduce swelling and bruising. (Bruising varies from person to person).
