What to Know Before Quad Eyelid Surgery

Whether you are looking to correct droopy eyelids, fix blurred vision, or create more symmetry in your face, you might be considering blepharoplasty or eyelid lift surgery. At the office of Dr. Bradford Lee, we offer both upper and lower lid surgery to remove excess fat and get rid of wrinkles around the eyes. Those who want both upper and lower lid surgery at the same time will want to have quad eyelid surgery. Let’s look at what to know before quad eyelid surgery.

What to Know Before Quad Eyelid Surgery

There are a few things to be aware of before diving into a new cosmetic surgery like this. Dr. Lee, your local oculofacial plastic surgeon of Hawaii, will give you a good idea of what to know before a quad eyelid surgery investment.

How Does the Procedure Work?

The nature of a blepharoplasty procedure is to remove excess skin and fat in the folds above the eye, which can prevent problems with drooping or uneven eyelids. This can be done in both the upper or lower eyelids depending on the patient’s needs.

A quad eyelid surgery combines both an upper and lower lid surgery to make the eyes appear wider, younger, and free of excess skin. Like all surgical procedures, quad eyelid surgery does pose a few risks of possible side effects that you should speak with your doctor about before you commit to surgery. For the most part, this is a highly successful procedure with a short recovery time so you can get back to your own life as quickly as possible.

What are the Side Effects of Quad Eyelid Surgery?

There are some side effects of blepharoplasty that you can be affected by depending on the skill of the surgeon and your medical background. Remember that results take time to heal, and the recovery process is not always a comfortable one. In some cases, patients experience temporarily blurred vision or spots of blindness for a few days. They may also experience eye itching, bruising, swelling, and sensitivity.

After a few weeks of healing time, you should start to see the new benefits of your quad eyelid surgery procedure. Getting all four eyelids done at once is more than possible; speak with your local eyelid surgeon about your candidacy.

Who is a Good Candidate for This Surgery?

Anybody looking to improve their physical appearance for the sake of their mental or physical health can be a good candidate for quad eyelid surgery. However, there are a few other things that our surgeons look for to confirm that you will take to the results of the blepharoplasty well. These include if you:

  • Have significant droopiness in your upper and lower eyelids
  • Suffer from blurred or obscured vision due to sagging skin
  • Have a buildup of fatty tissues underneath the skin of the eyelids
  • Are in generally good health otherwise
  • Are not a tobacco smoker
  • Or are looking to improve your self-esteem by changing the shape of your eyes

There are a lot of viable reasons for getting quad eyelid surgery. You can speak with our friendly experts at the office of Dr. Bradford Lee to learn if any kind of blepharoplasty procedure is the right move for you.
