Eyelid Surgery Overview

By RealSelf
  • Eyelid surgery (called blepharoplasty or eyelid lift) is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to get rid of crepey eye skin, drooping eyelids, puffy bags and dark circles under the eyes. Work on the upper and lower eyelids is often performed in separate procedures.
  • Eyelid surgery risks and complications: These are rare but can include the inability to close the upper lid if too much skin is taken, and dry eye. If patients currently have dry eyes, blepharoplasty surgery can make the eyes drier. Permanent blindness and double vision are exceedingly rare.
  • Double eyelid surgery refers to the creation or accentuation of an eyelid crease. The procedure is often called Asian blepharoplasty or Asian eyelid surgery due to its popularity among people of Asian descent who want to "open up" their eyes by creating a visible fold.
  • Eyelid surgery recovery time: Patients undergoing blepharoplasty typically get stitches removed in 3-4 days and the steri-strip (small pieces of tape) within 7 days.  Most return to work within 8-10 days. Make-up can usually be applied by Day 8. With doctor clearance, patients resume normal activity within 3-4 weeks.

Your lack of correct grammar and word usage makes what you have to say seem stupid and uninformed. Perhaps some additional education would be helpful before you post comments about issues you do not seem to understand.
