Successful eyelid surgery leaves men and women feeling uplifted. The area that was a source of concern and embarrassment now looks cleaner and more refreshed, giving reason to rejoice! The potential to obtain such dramatic improvement is the reason patients strongly consider the benefits of correcting the baggy and sagging skin.
Eyelid surgery comes with risks, as any surgical procedure. Treating Philadelphia and all of Montgomery County at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, Joseph A. Rabson takes the time to thoroughly inform his patients of every possibility, regardless of how minor or major.
Most complications arising from eyelid surgery are temporary, but permanent impairment can occur. The most severe risks include ectropion and hematoma, but these are rare.
Eyelid surgery risks can also include a number of less serious complications and side effects, such as:
Other potential complications may include infection, scarring, and excessive tearing. Sedation is sometimes recommended during the procedure and a patient may experience a slightly negative reaction to anesthesia, such as nausea or vomiting. Dr. Rabson firmly educates his patients on upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery risks by referencing the latest findings at our suburban Philadelphia surgicenter.
In this age, information is more abundant than ever before. Dr. Rabson invites you to contact the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, a real step in gaining specific knowledge on eyelid surgery risks from a board-certified surgeon in the Philadelphia area. Together, you can explore the options best-suited to your cosmetic needs.
