All About Eyelid Surgery in Montana

Montana is a large state with many rural areas. If you're looking for a plastic surgeon, you may need to head into a more populated city. If you've noticed sagging and drooping around your eyes, you may want to visit one of these surgeons to learn all about eyelid surgery in Montana and how this simple procedure can transform your look. The eyes are touted as the "window to the soul" and eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can keep these windows looking stunning.

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper lid, lower lid, or both. Surgery on the upper lid is occasionally covered by medical insurance. If a drooping lid is obstructing your eyesight, having this condition corrected can be considered medically necessary. If your sight is not obstructed, the surgery will be considered elective. Lower eyelid surgery is always considered an elective procedure. Eyelid surgery is a simple outpatient procedure that tightens the skin around the eyes. The surgeon will also remove excess fat, muscle, and skin in this area for a more youthful look that eliminates sagging, drooping, bags, and puffiness.

Eyelid surgery is performed with a local anesthetic. Small incisions are made in the skin around the eyelids so the surgeon can remove fat, skin, and muscle in this area. The incision is then closed with small sutures. In the first few hours after surgery, the patient's vision is often blurry. You will need to have someone available to drive you home after the surgery has been completed. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within a week. For the first week after the surgery has been performed, you will need to carefully clean the incisions each day.

At your one-week follow up appointment, the sutures will be removed from the area around your eyes. The eye's natural creases conceal most scarring. You may need to wear makeup for a few weeks to conceal additional bruising as the eyes heal. Consulting with various plastic surgeons in your area is the best way to learn all about eyelid surgery in Montana. You should schedule two or three consultations so that you can compare the recommended procedures from various doctors. You may find that you feel more comfortable with one than another, or that the projected results are different with different surgeons.
