Dr. Hardy on Facial Plastic Surgery
The Benefits of Eyelid Surgery
Improved Self-ConfidenceBlepharoplasty can target many of the common signs of aging to provide a significant enhancement in your appearance and your self-esteem.
Larger Field of Vision
Drooping upper eyelids can interfere with your vision. Dr. Hardy can use blepharoplasty to tighten the upper eyelids, allowing you to see more clearly.
We offer a range of facial plastic surgery procedures at our practice serving the Missoula, MT, area. If appropriate, Dr. Hardy can combine your eyelid surgery with another cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift or rhinoplasty, to provide more dramatic results.
After Eyelid Surgery
Recovery from blepharoplasty is typically quick and involves only minimal discomfort. During the first few days, you may experience some minor irritation, sensitivity, or visual changes, such as blurred or double vision.
Following Dr. Hardy's aftercare instructions will do much to expedite your healing time and reduce discomfort. Most patients will take about a week away from work, although swelling and bruising may be noticeable for a short period of time thereafter.
As the initial swelling and bruising begin to subside a few days after your surgery, you will notice the results of your procedure. Lifted upper eyelids will reveal improved contours from lid to brow. Patients with previously blocked vision should have a restored field of sight. The appearance of bags or drooping under the eyes will be remarkably less noticeable.
Patients should keep in mind that blepharoplasty is designed to treat the eyelids. Anatomically adjacent areas, such as the brow or cheeks, will not be affected.
