For his patients in Charlotte who choose upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Freeman recommends an incision that is hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid. It is through this incision that excess skin, muscle, and fat are removed. Because the incision follows the natural contour of the upper eyelid, it is well-hidden when healed.
Recovery, Results, and Combined Procedures
For some people, mild swelling persists for several weeks after surgery, while others see swelling resolve in just 7 days. Bruising normally disappears in 7 to 10 days and patients may use makeup during the first week to hide discoloration. Any post operative concerns will be reviewed with you during your initial consultation.
If upper eyelid fullness is accompanied by depression of the eyebrows, then a brow lift should be considered. Smoothing of crow’s feet may also require a brow lift, a laser resurfacing procedure or BOTOX® Cosmetic. Charlotte, NC women and men with circles beneath the eyes caused by dark pigmentation may benefit from laser procedures.
