Charlotte eyelid surgery
Charlotte eyelid surgery can be done in different ways by different surgeons to make you look younger and more alert, with some performing it under local rather than general anesthetic. Any surgeon who does this needs a lot of skill and experience in order to decide, down to the fraction of a millimeter, how much skin and muscle to remove from the eyelid in order to give it the right look while still letting it close completely and protect the eyeball, using sutures thinner than eyelashes to close the incision.
An eyelid surgery patient should be in fairly good health, and should not suffer from blurry vision, dry eye, double vision, diabetes or thyroid problems. The best candidates for eyelid surgery are people with well-recessed eyes.
Preparation and recovery
Before undergoing Charlotte eyelid surgery, make sure you stop smoking, don’t take any aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs just before the surgery, and tell your surgeon beforehand about any other medications you are taking. After the surgery, you should expect some bruising and swelling for several days. There may also be some itchiness and dryness around the eyes, which will also go away after a little while. Have some music or books on tape handy, so you can rest your eyes without getting bored. The stitches should dissolve or be taken out in about five days. Recovery will probably be longer if eye lift surgery is accompanied by other facial plastic surgery procedures.
