Blepharoplasty San Diego
What is a Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty removes the extra skin from the eyelid. It is performed on the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid or both. Then, Dr. Kouli stitches (sutures) the skin margins back together.
Risks and Complications:
- Because of the loose tissue around the eye and the many small blood vessels, you may have some bruising around the eye following this surgery. This means you may get a black eye. This usually gets better within several days.
- The possibility of infection is always present as with any surgical procedure.
- A more severe problem occurs when too much skin is removed and the eyelid turns outward (ectropian). When this happens, the tears may no longer go down the tear duct normally, they may instead spill down your cheek. When this happens, further surgery may be required to correct it.
- A severe complication would be loss of eyesight. This is very uncommon with this procedure.
All surgeries carry risks, even when performed under the best of conditions. Be sure to:
- Consider surgery carefully.
- Proceed with caution.
- Be fully informed.
- Follow your caregiver’s instructions before and after surgery.
