An eyelid lift in Charlotte NC can help you look younger

An eyelid lift in Charlotte is most often done along with other procedures with similar aims, such as lower lid surgery, a brow lift, filler injections, laser skin resurfacing or BOTOX, in order to create an overall younger appearance for the face. If you want to undergo an eye lift, you should be reasonably healthy. If you have any medical problems such as blurry vision, dry eye, double vision, diabetes or thyroid problems, an eyelid lift in Charlotte or anywhere else would be a bad idea.

As with any other facial plastic surgery, if you smoke, you should stop before an eyelid lift in Charlotte. Smoking causes blood vessels to constrict and makes your body heal slower. Do not take aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs before the surgery. Tell your surgeon beforehand about any other medications you might be taking. He or she will be able to tell you whether you should continue taking them before surgery.

On average, most patients are back to normal in two weeks, and the last of the bruising around the eyelids fades soon after. You can speed recovery time by getting lots of sleep, keeping your head elevated to reduce swelling and using cold packs. Be sure to take any medication your surgeon prescribes so as to reduce the risk of infection and help the healing process go faster. Keep your eyes out of the sun. If you must go outside on sunny days, use dark-tinted sunglasses. Your surgeon will have more advice for you.
