Eyes are the most prominent and important facial feature and at the same time the skin around the eyes is the most delicate and sensitive. Adding to this, eyes are one of the first places that show the signs of aging also. This is the reason that eyelids become droopy and creases appear on the skin. Furthermore, eye bags also appear beneath lower eyelids. This affects the appearance of your eyes and make them look tired and older. Thanks to cosmetic surgery that it has made it quite easy to regain the youthful appearance of eyes. Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery in dubai is perfect option for you if you want to improve the aging signs affecting the aesthetic appearance of your eyes but at the same time there are some temporary side effects of the procedure. Here we will discuss about an important one that is scarring.
Though all the side effects of eyelid surgery are temporary and subside in couple of days or after the time period of few weeks but scarring is the only side effect that takes a little longer to fade. The time period required for their complete removal may vary from person to person. Though upper eyelid skin is best at healing and scarring is very rare, if you think scar is taking longer, there are various options available for their removal and you can go for the best one depending on your condition.
If scars are mild, you can apply topical cream having cortisone or use silicone sheets that help in fading of scar. They promote healing and eradicate the scars. It is important to mention here that before applying any cream, it is important to consult the doctor and use the one that he recommends. In most of the cases, scarring after eyelid surgery is not severe and they fade with the use of topical creams.
If doctor recommends you, you can also go for scar revision surgery. Scar revision surgery is not a big issue and it is very simple procedure that can be performed in office setting. During scar revision surgery, only scar is removed without leading to much tension. The surgery is suitable for the scar that is smooth. Dented scars do not fill on their own and require a proper treatment.
Injectable fillers are another option for the treatment of eyelid surgery scars. Restylane and Juvederm are mostly used for this purpose and they are also effective for removal of dented scars.
In short, there are various methods for removal of scars from eyelid surgery but it is better to consult your doctor before you try any treatment.
