Dr. Luis Zapiach discusses the finer details of eyelid surgery from consultation to recovery, a common area of interest among his New Jersey Plastic Surgery patients.
Paramus, NJ — Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a popular option among patients desiring to correct signs of stress and aging around the eyes. The procedure can be performed on the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both, depending on each patient’s preference. Dr. Luis Zapiach, a board certified plastic surgeon in New Jersey, says some of the most common questions that he receives in regards to blepharoplasty are about the overall recovery process. As an experienced surgeon, he says he understands every individual heals differently; however, he feels general information about the healing process can aid in a safer recovery experience.
Procedural times may vary depending on the extent of the surgery, but Dr. Zapiach says most patients will be able to return home the day of the surgery as the majority of blepharoplasty procedures are outpatient. He notes that normal routines can often be resumed after a few days, although strenuous activity should be avoided for longer. Patients can also expect some bruising and swelling initially, as well as light-sensitivity and blurred vision, says the New Jersey plastic surgeon. Additionally, he adds that pain medication can often be prescribed to help reduce any discomfort in the weeks following eyelid surgery.
When interested in plastic surgery in New Jersey, Dr. Zapiach says patients should always consult a board-certified surgeon to better understand every procedural detail. Board-certified surgeons have the necessary training and experience to comprehensively prepare each patient on what to expect from consultation to recovery. Devoted to his patients’ satisfaction and overall well-being, Dr. Zapiach says he discloses every piece of procedural information in a one-on-one consultation prior to any surgery so as to ensure the safest, most effective results possible.
