Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids by tightening soft tissues or removing excess skin, muscle, and fat from around the eyes.
Getting Ready for Blepharoplasty
We want you to have the best possible experience during your procedure and recovery. To ensure this happens, Dr. Hutchinson will provide you with precise instructions to be followed before your appointment. These instructions include recommendations for any pre operative evaluation by an ophthalmologist, as well as requirements for medical clearance and bloodwork prior to surgery. She will also talk to you about being an active participant in optimizing your wellness, including maintaining a healthy lifestyle, diet, and weight, avoiding smoking, and not taking medications that can increase your risk of complications.
