Frequently asked questions about eye lid surgery in Charlotte
Here are some frequently asked questions about eye lid surgery in Charlotte, along with the answers:

Why do my eyes look uneven, and can it be fixed with eyelid surgery?
Very few human faces look perfectly symmetrical. There are a number of reasons why your eyes might be more uneven than usual. If one of your eyelids is drooping, there might be a problem with the muscle that surgery can correct. If the problem is built into the orbital bones, eye lid surgery can’t fix the problem but might make it less noticeable. Ask your surgeon for a diagnosis.

How long will I need to recover from eye lid surgery?
It varies from patient to patient. In most cases, you’ll be largely healed within the first two weeks. Dissolvable sutures will take eight to fourteen days to dissolve. It will speed up the healing process if you keep your head elevated when you sleep, have cold packs for the swelling and get lots of rest.

How much does eye lid surgery cost?
It depends where you’re having it done, whether you’re having upper lids, lower lids or both worked on, and whether you’re getting local or general anesthesia. This is something else you’ll have to ask your surgeon.

Does a brow lift work better than eye lid surgery?
Sometimes it does, in cases where the skin of the brow is sagging into the space of the eyelids with age. Your facial plastic surgeon will know if this is true in your case.
