The EyeQ Eye Lift is a relativity simple, scarless lower blepharoplasty procedure that is most often performed with local anesthesia or twilight sedation. This lower blepharoplasty procedure is performed through a tiny incision made inside the pink of the eye. Through this incision, a portion of the fat pads are removed by trimming away the pockets of fat. The small, concealed incision is then closed with a single dissolvable stitch, making this procedure truly scarless.
Most clients opt to have a physician-grade chemical peel performed around the eyes to tighten and lift the upper eye lid while softening fine lines and wrinkles.
Typically, this lower blepharoplasty procedure is performed in about 20 to 25 minutes. In just a few hours, you can be at home, resting comfortably.
*For most patients when post-operative instructions are followed.
Recovery from Blepharoplasty
Recovery from blepharoplasty will vary depending on if any other cosmetic procedures are performed during the same surgery — such as a chemical peel or fat transfer. However, most people are able to return to work in about seven days. Initially, the eye area will be red and swollen with bruising developing in the days following surgery. Most people are comfortable taking the prescribed pain medication and resting for the first three to five days. After that time, light daily activities can usually be performed. Residual bruising may be present for up to two weeks or longer. Camouflage cream can be applied to conceal the bruises. The results from the EyeQ EyeLift are seen immediately and will continue to improve as the swelling and bruising fade away.
