What to Expect with Eyelid Surgery
On the day of your eyelid surgery, you will arrive to our private office-based surgery center and be greeted by our experienced surgical nurse. You will then be taken to your preoperative room and provided with a warm blanket.
After consents are signed and vital signs are taken, our nurse will start your IV, if applicable. You will also see Dr. Lee on the morning of surgery prior to entering the operating room, so you are able to discuss any extra expectations and ask any questions you may have.
Our nurse will then give you oral medications to help relax you and provide pain management. You will then be taken back to our private operating room and will be able to choose a music channel that helps to make you feel comfortable during the procedure.
The duration of your blepharoplasty procedure will depend on which surgical approach Dr. Lee determines is most suitable for your personal goals and safety. On average, eyelid surgery takes between 1-3 hours.
Eyelid Surgery Recovery
After your surgery, your incisions will be dressed with antibiotic ointment. Your nurse will take you to your private recovery room and monitor you until you are comfortable to be discharged home.
After surgery, it is normal to feel some degree of discomfort, pressure, swelling, and fatigue. Medication for pain control and antibiotics will be provided for you.
Dr. Lee conveniently schedules the majority of his surgeries on Thursdays and Fridays, so you are able to rest over the weekend and miss a minimal amount of work. Dr. Lee and his staff will see you within the first few days after surgery to change your dressings and ensure you are healing well.
Why Choose Dr. Lee for Eyelid Surgery in the Tampa Bay area
Dr. Lee understands how aging affects the eyes, and he knows that no two eyes are the same. The features around our eyes give us clues in identifying each another. However, the eyes are one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Wrinkles and skin laxity in this area can significantly alter our appearance and become problematic for both men and women.
Not only does Dr. Lee meticulously plan each unique eye lift and eye bag surgery he performs to best meet the needs of the patient, he takes the utmost care to ensure your incisions heal well and are not easily noticeable. He will check your vitamin D level with your other preoperative lab work as studies show that a normal vitamin D level correlates with less abnormal scarring. He will also place incisions discreetly in the natural creases around your eyelids.
How Much Does Eyelid Surgery Cost?
The cost of eyelid surgery depends on the type of procedure performed. Dr. Lee will work closely with you to determine if an upper eyelid surgery (upper blepharoplasty), lower eyelid surgery (lower blepharoplasty), or a double eyelid surgery is best for you. Complete pricing information will be provided once Dr. Lee finalizes your treatment plan.
