Frequently Asked Questions
Will I be awake during the procedure?
You will be given a local or general anesthesia to numb the area we will be working on. This will keep you awake however you will be sedated.
When is a form or eyelid surgery medically necessary?
A surgical eye procedure may be medically necessary is the sagging of the eyelid obscures vision. This is often seen when eyelid skin partially or significantly covers the iris, eyelashes or prevents the normal function of the eyelids. In some cases, these situations may be covered by Medicare or health insurance.
How long will the results last?
This will vary for all patients, but on average the results of these procedures often last between five to seven years. In the case of any lower eyelid surgery, the results are often permanent. Nothing will stop the ageing process, and over time sagging lids may once again become an issue. If so, a forehead lift may be the following step.
Are there any reasons why my vision would be at risk?
This procedure works to rectify issues with your vision, not create them. While your vision may be slightly blurry after surgery, there will be no permanent risks, and it will return to normal after two or three days. You will see a full recovery of all eye areas around the two to four-week mark after surgery.
