One of the first areas on the face to show the signs of aging are the eyes, people often complain that they look tired and their lids feel heavy. One of the most popular procedures in Cosmetic Surgery corrects this appearance, called Blepharoplasty. This is often referred to as an eye lift, and is surprisingly easy to achieve a good result in the hands of a good surgeon.
Properly trained Surgeons will perform this procedure by scalpel surgery, rather than laser surgery, as it heals faster and gives a better result.
The surgery time is usually 1 to 2 hours, and recovery time is less than a week. Stitches are removed at 5 days after the surgery.
*It is not a painful procedure either during the surgery or in recovery.
*Either general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic can be used.
*Qualified surgeons will recommend this is done in a hospital, although the patient can return home the same day.
*The incision marks will fade in a short space of time and there will not be any permanent scars as a result.
*There maybe a Medicare item number which attracts a rebate and funded patients may have their hospital costs covered.
When planning this procedure it is better to inquire through an experienced advisor and seek the services of a qualified and experienced specialist.
