I am fair skinned with blue eyes and have very dark bags under my eyes. The skin under my eyebrows also sags over my eyes quite a bit. So my eyes, which were once my best feature, look terrible. How much time is involved in undergoing blepharoplasty to remove the bags and drooping skin? How long will I need to keep my eyes covered afterwards?
This is a very common concern among people as they age, and usually the eyelids are the first area of the face that is addressed with rejuvenating procedures. The good news is that it is also the easiest area to address and to recover from. It takes only about an hour for the upper eyelids (both), and the same for the lower eyelids. Afterward, you do not have to keep your eyes covered at all. Although there is a variable amount of bruising and swelling after the procedure, the discomfort is absolutely minimal and most patients are able to work from home within one to three days. With our exclusive Rapid Recovery TechniquesSM, we are also able to help speed bruising away with our unique laser treatment, which is included in the cost of all our surgical procedures.
