What to Consider Before Choosing Eyelid Surgery Beverly Hills, CA
Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery can be an effective treatment to give you a more youthful appearance. As you age, skin around the eyelids can droop and sag, creating a tired and rundown appearance. The decision to undergo surgery is not to be taken lightly. There are certain things you should know to help you make an informed choice regarding whether or not this procedure is right for you. Here are three factors for you to consider before choosing eyelid surgery.

Preparation for Downtime

It can take up to two weeks to fully recover from eyelid surgery. If you are considering other treatments, you may want to talk with your doctor about combining procedures to take advantage of the downtime. You may want to prepare easy meals ahead of the procedure and enlist help to watch your children while you recover.

Eyelid Surgery Aftercare

As an outpatient procedure, you can go home the same day after eyelid surgery after a few hours of recovery. You can expect to experience mild discomfort, swelling and bruising for a few days. Most individuals are able to return to work after approximately five days. Strenuous activities may need to be avoided for at least three weeks.

Eyelid Surgery Risks

As with any procedure, eyelid surgery comes with potential risks and complications. These risks can include a reaction to anesthesia, excessive bleeding, infection and blood clots. You may also experience dry or irritated eyes and blurred vision. A board-certified plastic surgeon can minimize these risks during the procedure and recommend lifestyle changes you can do to achieve optimal results.

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
