Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is a great way to improve your facial appearance, and combat signs offacial aging. People contemplating blepharoplasty always want to know if it is a one-time procedure, therefore one of the most common questions asked is, -“How long do results last with a blepharoplasty surgery and will I need revision surgery later on.”
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to rejuvenate the eyelids. The operation involves the removal of excess skin and fat around the eyes, in addition to there positioning of the fat.
How long do results last with blepharoplasty
The results of blepharoplasty should last a lifetime, but outcomes differ with every patient and can be influenced by genetics and aging. However, it is important to have the procedure done by a board certified plastic surgeon, to achieve the best results. After the operation patients are also advised to take care of their skin and maintain a proper diet, as this can affect the quality and longevity of the results.
Will I need revision surgery later on?
Most patients don’t require revision surgery, as the results are long-lasting. The tissues around the eyes will sag somewhat as you get older, but it’s not expected that the changes will merit revision surgery.
Revision blepharoplasty is done in rare cases where there is surgical need for it, and this is usually because the patient has a lot of extra skin.
