All About Eyelid Surgery in Nebraska

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a type of plastic surgery. If you live in a rural area of Nebraska, you may need to travel into a larger city to find the best plastic surgeons. Learning all about eyelid surgery before scheduling your first consultation will give you the information you need to interview various surgeons properly. You have lots of choices for this procedure and it's important that you choose a surgeon that you're happy with. Don't just choose the most affordable option. Look for a licensed, reputable plastic surgeon who understands what you're looking for. It's best to interview several options.

Eyelid surgery is usually considered an elective surgery. However, you may be able to get some insurance coverage for this procedure if your vision is obstructed by a drooping eyelid. Insurance will only pay for upper eyelid surgery in these cases. Lower eyelid surgery is always an elective procedure. Both upper and lower eyelid surgeries help to tighten the skin around the eyes and remove deposits of fat. If you have a tired look at all times, or big bags underneath your eyes, these are issues that eyelid surgery can fix. This is a relatively simple outpatient procedure. You'll be able to go home the same day.

When you have eyelid surgery, small incisions are made beside the eyelid. Local anesthesia is used so the patient does not feel any pain. This gives the surgeon access to muscle and fat deposits around the eye. Fat and muscle will be removed to get rid of drooping over the eye and bags underneath. Some surgeons in Nebraska may also reposition the fat around the eye for a more attractive appearance. Removing too much fat can cause the eyes to look hollow. Repositioning the fat instead will prevent this problem. Excess skin may be removed as well. The incisions are closed with sutures when the procedure is complete.

After eyelid surgery, you will have blurred vision for a few hours. A gel is applied to the surface of the eye during the surgery which makes it difficult to see for a few hours. You will need to have someone available to drive you home after the procedure. A one-week follow up appointment will be scheduled to remove sutures and observe how the healing process is going. Patients often return to work within a week. You will not be able to wear contact lenses for at least two weeks. The final results with this procedure are more open, younger-looking eyes.
