How is Eyelid Surgery Performed?
The Eyelid Lift improves visible signs of aging and redefines the contours of the upper and/or lower eyelids to provide results that last for decades. The secret behind this innovative technique is the specific placement of incisions, removal of redundant skin, and excision of excess fat to allow for the return of a naturally refreshed appearance.
To achieve improved eyelid definition, during your blepharoplasty in Austin, Dr. Givens utilizes a series of sequential steps to restore visual form and function while making the eyes more alert and youthful. Eyelid surgery can be performed simultaneously with many facial restoration procedures including facial contouring, nasal reshaping, skin rejuvenation, revision and repair procedures, and non-surgical maintenance.
When it comes to your face, there is no reason to compromise on quality. From your first consultation to the final reveal, Dr. Givens invests her time and resources into learning about you, understanding your aesthetic goals, and developing a personalized plan and a customized approach tailored specifically to your individual needs.
What does Recovery Entail?
Preparation for recovery begins at your one-on-one initial consultation with Dr. Givens at her office in Austin. Eyelid surgery recovery is generally about 2 weeks, but this may vary depending on a patient’s innate healing abilities and the extent of work performed.
Givens Facial Plastic Surgery provides all surgical candidates with a Surgery & Post-Treatment Care Book pertaining to the individual procedures chosen. Each book provides a detailed aftercare plan based on prior patient experiences and commonly asked questions. Topics of discussion include recommended post-surgery items to purchase, postoperative care and cleaning instructions, a 30-day recovery guide, and a timeline for return to normal activities including bathing, beauty care, exercise, work, and things to avoid.
It is highly recommended that you and your caretaker read this packet SEVERAL times BEFORE surgery to adequately prepare for the recovery process. Those who follow these instructions faithfully generally have the smoothest postoperative course and proper healing.
