Gillian’s Blepharoplasty Experience

Gillian was bothered by her eyelids, she felt a heaviness resting on her eyelids and felt she didn’t feel her best. She came to see Dr. Buonassisi for an in-depth Blepharoplasty consultation. During her consultation Dr. Buonassisi discussed her goals and what she can expect from the surgery:

  • Tightened upper eyelid skin and muscles
  • Reduction in the bulging upper eyelid fat that causes eyelid puffiness
  • More show of the upper eyelid crease makes the eyes look bigger
  • Incisions are hidden in the upper eyelid crease

Post Operative Care & Recovery

Following surgery, Gillian came to the clinic for a follow up 10 days after her surgery and then again after 4 months. Gillian had an amazing result, she was extremely happy with the surgery and the outcome. Immediately after the surgery Gillian didn’t feel very much pain, however the incision site was quite itchy. She mentioned that she was concerned with itching the area in her sleep, but we are happy to report she did quite well.

If you are concerned with itching post surgery Dr. Buonassisi recommends using your cool packs or taking an anti-histamine like Benadryl. Alternatively you can also opt for non-dissolving sutures as some patients find these to cause less itchiness than the dissolving sutures.

Gillian’s Suggestions for you

Before commencing with your surgery ensure that you do your research, read about the procedure and how it is done. Read online and research your surgeon, read reviews ask people who have had the procedure done so when you come in for your consultation you know what questions to ask and you have confidence that you have chosen someone who will give you the results that you are looking for.

“This is an excellent procedure. I don’t feel like I look like I had surgery,
I just look fresher and younger ”
