How is eyelid surgery performed?
With regards to eyelid reshaping Chicago Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute specialists generally perform the outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. To correct problems of the upper eyelids, fine incisions are made in the upper lids in the naturally occurring folds of the eyes. Then a thin crescent of excess skin and muscle is removed. Small sutures are placed in the crease and are completely undetectable within weeks.
To remove the fatty deposits beneath the eyes, the surgical incisions are placed just inside the lower eyelids. After the fat is removed, the incisions may be closed with absorbable sutures or may be left to heal naturally. Scars are avoided and a natural shape is restored to the eyes. The blepharoplasty procedure at the Liposuction & Cosmetic Surgery Institute in Chicago requires minimal recovery time and your normal routine can be resumed in a few days.
After your blepharoplasty Chicago Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute specialists will usually recommend the use of a laser wash to tighten the skin around the eyes to minimize fine wrinkling and crow’s feet.
