A new surgical technique that reduces bleeding and boasts reduced recovery time is increasing the popularity of eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, according to a story from KYTV. A new surgical technique that reduces bleeding and boasts reduced recovery time is increasing the popularity of eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, according to a story from KYTV.

One patient, Eileen Born, was initially hesitant to correct her eyelids, because, even though they made it difficult for her to see, she feared the bruising and pain associated with the traditional operation.

The new technique uses a laser to make very precise incisions while also cauterizing the blood vessels. By reducing the blood in the eyelids, the entire procedure is improved. There is less painful bruising and swelling after the surgery, and less pain medication is required, the news source reports.

Candidates for the procedure generally have excess skin that hangs from their upper eyelids, which can have a detrimental impact on their vision.

Born has now fully recovered and can see better, which was her most important goal.

Patients looking to schedule a consultation may expect to look in a mirror and point at the area where they want to see improvement. Eyelid surgery can also correct droopiness or dark bags under the eyes.
