Eye Lid Treatment
Technology, Risks and Benefits
How do we treat eyelid conditions?
Eyelid conditions come in many different forms. The treatment will obviously differ depending on the condition, however we strive to get your eyelids looking like they should whether they are too droopy, have too much excess skin or just don’t sit where they are supposed to. Our surgical techniques are designed to achieve the best cosmetic and functional outcomes we can with a speedy recovery.
What technology is used in the treatment of eyelid conditions?
Eyelid surgery to remove the excess skin we accumulate over time in the upper eyelid is aimed at removing that heavy feeling on your eyes whilst trying to restore a more normal looking appearance. The optimal result has minimal bleeding and little to no swelling. At NQ Eye Specialists, our surgeons are trained in the use of the CO2 laser to perform the surgery. The use of laser results in less swelling and bleeding with a much quicker recovery time for you.
What are the risks of Eyelid Surgery, if any?
Like any operation there are risks. The main risks with lid surgery are over or under-correction, i.e. we remove too much or not enough tissue. It is important that both you and your doctor understand exactly how you want to look after the operation to ensure the best outcomes. Take the time to ask any questions you have of your doctor. Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
What are the benefits of Eyelid Surgery?
The aims of eyelid surgery are both functional and cosmetic. At NQ Eye Specialists we don’t pretend to be able to make you look like someone you are not. Our primary aim is to make your eyelids work the way they should…while making you look your best as well.
