My Quality of Life Improved After My Upper Eyelid Surgery

Arleen was suffering from ptosis which is the dropping or falling of the upper eyelid. Her ophthalmologist suggested she consider an upper eyelid surgery also known as a blepharoplasty. Arleen consulted with a board-certified plastic surgeon that performed surgery on her upper eyelid.

The plastic surgeon treated Arleen’s ptosis by shortening the cords in her upper eyelids. It was a simple procedure. She was put under anesthesia. Arleen woke up with a few stitches from the procedure and about a week later the stitches were out.

“People worry about the pain but all I needed was extra strength Tylenol at night, during the day I was fine. I saw a very big difference in the quality of my life because I was able to read and drive without positioning my head back. I think the most important thing with having plastic surgery, whether it is for cosmetic purposes or medically needed, is finding the right physician who has the certifications required to perform the procedure,” explained Arleen.

Eyelid surgery eliminates the puffiness and bags under the lowers lids and the hooded skin on your upper eyelids. For more information on eyelid surgery go to the procedural page.
