It is an unfortunate aspect of growing older, that parts of our bodies begin to sag and droop. However, these changes do not have to be merely accepted, particularly if they are in your facial area. This is the one area that is most noticeable, and the eyes are the most prominent, the one place we all notice.
At ENHANCE Aesthetic Arts, we are aware of the changes that can occur to your eyes, from the gentle drooping from aging, to lost tissue due to an injury, to eyelid conditions like Entropion and Ectropion eyelids that role inward and outward, respectively. We also understand this can cause confidence levels to drop. If you suffer from these conditions or wish to restore your youthful looks, then eyelid reconstruction surgery could be for you. If you decide to go ahead, take note of the following points to ensure maximum results and good recovery, you will not regret it.
If you are going to have surgery there is no real reason to worry too much. Most people become stressful, not only about the procedure but the post-results too, which is perfectly understandable. Our consultants are here to help you, and to allay any fears you may have. We appreciate how stressful this can be, so we have the answers to make your procedure as easy and comfortable as possible. Of course, we also need to talk about your medical history and expectations, so that we can ensure we get the right results for you, leaving you confident when your reconstruction has been done.
Our team is here to help you, so it is important that you stick to the guidelines that are discussed in the initial consultation. We have your best interests at heart, and cannot wait for you to see the amazing results, which is why we provide you with some guidelines to follow. For the best results, it is always recommended that you stop taking any medication that is associated with increased bleeding. This could be ibuprofen or aspirin, or others. It is best that this is stopped two weeks prior to the surgery. Also, if you smoke you should be aware that this could slow down the post-op healing process, so we recommend that you try your best to stop smoking before surgery.
Once the procedure is complete, you will find that your eyes will be sore for a while, so it is not recommended that you try to drive home. So, bring a family member, or friend with you, to get you home after. They can also help boost your confidence levels, by being with you before the surgery, making you feel comfortable and stress-free. Then post-op they can get you home safely to the comfort of your home, where you can recuperate and enjoy your new look.
If you feel that eyelid reconstruction surgery could be for you, then make sure you speak to one of our consultants today. They will discuss the procedure with you and ensure your expectations can be met, leaving you full of confidence and stress-free, both before and after the procedure.
