Blepharoplasty (commonly known as eyelid surgery) is an effective way to give a tired, weary-looking face a revived look while also potentially improving vision. As the eyes begin to naturally droop with age, the surgery may help with maintaining a youthful look while also keeping vision sharp.
While eyelid surgery is incredibly popular, patients need to follow their doctor’s advice closely when it comes to recovery. The surgery does require a bit of downtime but with new developments focusing on cutting down on bruising and swelling, the recovery may be expedited significantly. This new development is a device that looks a lot like goggles. Using light compression near the eyes, the gentle pressure may help with speeding up recovery.
The goggles are worn for about three days during most of the day and at all times at night. Besides expediting recovery, they can also help with ensuring patients take the proper recovery steps as there is always a possibility they may, for example, forget to apply ice as directed.
