What Is Quad Blepharoplasty?
Quad blepharoplasty is a type of eyelid surgery that involves treating both the upper and lower eyelids at once. This can be done for functional reasons, like when sagging skin around the eyes is making it difficult to see, or for cosmetic reasons, like when you want to achieve a more youthful appearance.
Quad blepharoplasty is generally considered to be a more comprehensive treatment than upper blepharoplasty or lower blepharoplasty on its own. By treating all your eyelids at once, you can get results that look more natural and complement each other. With improvements made by a single surgeon and aesthetic vision, you can count on more synthesized results that refresh your look without looking like you had surgery.
Is Quad Blepharoplasty Right for Me?
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your eyelids, or if they are impacting your vision, quad blepharoplasty might be right for you. If you want to only treat a single eyelid or only your upper or lower lids, we also offer individual procedures based on your goals. The first step is to learn more about your options through scheduling a consultation with Dr. Kauh.
During your consultation with Dr. Kauh, she will evaluate your eyelids and ask about your goals for the procedure. She will also help you understand what you can expect from quad blepharoplasty and how it might impact your appearance.
If you are a good candidate for quad blepharoplasty, she will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. This plan will take into account your unique anatomy and goals for the procedure.
“Dr. Kauh was helpful, kind, and went above and beyond to make me
feel comfortable in the approach to my healthcare. I couldn’t recommend anyone better to provide cosmetic services.”
What Is the Procedure Like?
Quad blepharoplasty is typically performed using a local anesthetic, and this can be combined with a sedative to help you relax during the procedure. However, full sedation is also popular for total comfort throughout your procedure. It depends on what you feel comfortable with and factors such as your overall health.
Once you are comfortable, Dr. Kauh will make hidden incisions in your eyelids to access the underlying tissue. She will then remove any excess skin, muscle, or fat to improve the appearance and function of your eyelids. In some cases, she might also need to reposition your muscles or tendons for optimal results based on your agreed-upon procedure plan.
The entire procedure usually takes less than two hours, but this can vary slightly based on your individual plan and additional combined procedures.
Quad Blepharoplasty Results and Recovery
Once your quad blepharoplasty is complete, you can expect some initial swelling and bruising around your eyes. But this is normal and will resolve on its own over the course of a week or two. However, we advise patients to take this initial recovery period off from work as downtime to focus on healing. To help manage your symptoms, we will provide you with cold compresses and pain medication to use at home as needed along with full care instructions to reduce the risk of complications.
You should begin seeing your results as soon as the initial swelling begins to fade, but final results may only be apparent after swelling fully subsides over the following months. However, each day can bring gradual improvements that you will enjoy more and more. If you have any questions as you recover, Dr. Kauh and her team are here to provide any answers, tips, or info you might need at any point.
