Before you get an upper eyelid lift in Charlotte
An upper eyelid lift in Charlotte is obviously a very precise procedure. The eyelid absolutely needs to be able to cover and protect the eyelid, so the surgery must be carried out with ultra-fine precision in order to remove just enough skin to straighten out the wrinkles on the upper lid. This can be done under local anesthesia, if you’re feeling brave. Sutures thinner than eyelashes are used to close up the cut, and are removed in about five days. Properly done, this procedure can take years off your appearance, especially when combined with other facial plastic surgery procedure.
Before you get an upper eyelid lift in Charlotte, you should get a medical examination and make sure your health is good enough. If you suffer from blurry vision, dry eye, double vision, diabetes or thyroid problems, an upper eyelid lift might not be right for you. It helps if your eyes are well-recessed.
As with any plastic surgery, if you smoke, you should stop several weeks before the surgery. Don’t take any aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs just before surgery. Tell your surgeon about any other medications you take before surgery. Be prepared to rest your eyes for a few days after surgery.
