How To Prepare For Your Blepharoplasty in Toronto

LEARN MORE ABOUT BLEPHAROPLASTY PROCEDURES

Planning a blepharoplasty in Toronto involves taking just a few, key steps. As one of the most commonly requested facial rejuvenation procedures in Canada, eyelid surgery, known medically as blepharoplasty, can do wonders for your appearance. Men and women undergo this simple tightening and revitalization of the delicate skin on their eyelids. The result is a refreshed, younger and rested appearance which can dramatically transform one’s look.

There are a couple alternate reasons people seek blepharoplasty in Toronto, besides the cosmetic, anti-aging effects. Those who wish to transform a mono-eyelid into a double eyelid often seek this procedure. As well, extreme sagging (ptosis) of the upper eyelids can lead to obscured vision, primarily for elderly clients. Upper eyelid surgery removes the obstruction of excess skin to open up the field of vision and reveal one’s eyes again.

When you begin planning your procedure, there are a few steps you’ll need to follow which ensure this is the right treatment for you.

Have An Eye Exam

A comprehensive assessment your eye health and visual acuity should be done annually. If you haven’t had an eye check for a while, this is a good time to book it, before planning cosmetic eye surgery. During the appointment, you’ll be evaluated for common eye conditions including macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic eye disease.

Visual acuity, including the ability to see well for long distances, and your peripheral vision will be tested. Even if you believe you have excellent eyesight, you can expect some temporary blurring after blepharoplasty in Toronto, so it’s essential to have a baseline assessment.

If you’re having the procedure to improve vision, this testing will be essential for the complete insurance coverage.

We all know that one of the most captivating and expressive facial areas can be a person’s eyes. Find out more about how blepharoplasty can help you.

Ask About Lifestyle & Medication Concerns

Each client is considered individually as their unique health picture and surgical plan will differ. In general, using nicotine before any cosmetic procedure isn’t advised because it negatively affects your blood circulation, which in turn slows healing.

Certain medications like Aspirin and Advil or known blood thinners are typically put on hold before a surgery, but your plastic surgeon will be the one to discuss your specific needs and restrictions with you. At your consultation appointment, you’ll need to share information about any prescriptions you take or health supplements. They’ll ask some questions about your medical and lifestyle considerations, then advise you about the best next steps.

Schedule Extra Help Along With Your Procedure

When planning your procedure, it’s essential that you also plan for some extra help at home and someone to drive you home from the surgical centre. You may have the treatment done with IV sedation and local anaesthetic, but due to the location of the operation- around the eyes- you won’t be able to drive safely.

In the first 12- 24 hours, the eyes will feel sensitive and produce tears due to normal swelling. It will feel most comfortable to rest with eyes closed and apply cool compresses as your surgeon advises. Running errands, help with children or pets will mean that you need an extra set of hands for the first few days.
