You might require eyelid surgery if you experience the following problems:
Whether your eyelids interfere with your vision, you experience abnormal lid issues, or you simply don’t like the way your eyelids look, Dr. Brennan and his staff are here for you.
To determine if you’re a good candidate for eyelid surgery at Dr. George Brennan’s office, he reviews your medical history and symptoms.
Dr. Brennan completes a physical exam, looks at your eyelids, may complete a vision assessment, discusses your desired outcome, and lets you know what to expect during the procedure. He may also take pictures of your eyelids to aid his preparation.
To get ready for eyelid surgery, follow Dr. Brennan’s pre-procedure instructions. Stop taking certain medications, avoid smoking, and arrange for someone to drive you home after your surgery.
To avoid pain, Dr. Brennan numbs the treatment area and offers you medication to help you relax during eyelid surgery. He makes tiny incisions to remove, repair, or reconstruct eyelid tissue before closing any incisions and taking you to a recovery area.
After eyelid surgery, Dr. Brennan and his team monitor you for complications. You can often go home the same day as your surgery but ask a friend or family member to drive. You might experience minor, temporary bruising and swelling.
Follow all post-surgery instructions. Keep your eyelids clean, apply ointment and an ice pack to your eyelids as directed, avoid smoking, don’t rub your eyes, and steer clear of strenuous activity and heavy lifting until Dr. Brennan says it’s okay. Return to his office as needed for follow-up appointments or to have your stitches removed.
