How To prepare For Eyelid Surgery?
It is important to avoid taking any Aspirin or products containing Aspirin for 2 weeks either side of the operation since Aspirin has an adverse effect on bruising. The same is true for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. If you are a smoker it is helpful to stop for two weeks before surgery and for a week afterwards so as not to restrict the circulation to the skin. While making preparations, be sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after your plastic surgery and to help you out for a few days at home.
Will Insurance Cover my Eyelid Surgery?
Upper Blepharoplasty is the only Blepharoplasty procedure that may have the possibility of being covered by insurance.
Where will my eyelid surgery be performed?
Your plasticsurgery will be performed at Dr. Mune Gowda’s fully accredited outpatient surgical facility at his Novi, Michigan location.
What Type of Anesthesia Will be Used?
Blepharoplasty is usually performed under a general anesthesia, so you’ll sleep through the entire operation.
What Does the Operation Involve Exactly?
On the upper eyelids the incision is carried out in the natural crease line that is located about 8-10 mm above the eyelashes. Surgery here is designed to correct both the excess skin and the excess fat. After making the incisions, the excess skin and muscle is trimmed from the upper eyelids together with any fat. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures which are passed below the skin therefore leaving no external stitch marks. There will be no scarring.
