Can a blepharoplasty affect my vision ?

Can a blepharoplasty affect my vision ?

Hi everybody, I am 25 years old and I live in Mississauga. I’m depressed about bags under eyes. It is hereditary running from paternal side. At last after a lot of research I have opted blepharoplasty because I don't want to look tired and I don't want to go to parties. I have consulted Dr. McLean and he asked me to undergo natural remedies like

Place cotton balls soaked in milk under your eyes for a few minutes. The lactic acid in the milk helps reduce puffiness and darkness.
Slice one small piece off of a potato, and cut the slice in half. Put each slice under your eyes and leave them under your eyes for 20 minutes.
Soak two cucumbers in lemon juice for 3-5 minutes. To help get rid of dark circles and puffiness place cucumbers on your eyes for about 10-15 minutes.

If it's not working, then I should undergo eyelid surgery( http://www.mcleanclinic.com/face/eye-lift/ ).
Will that affect my vision? Does it leave any scars? I would appreciate your suggestions.

good morning, Ellen

the blepharoplasty procedure should not affect your vision, stil before you decide to go under surgery the best thing to do is choose a certified surgeon that will give you confidence that the surgeon you choose wil do a great job and give you the outcome you wish by following the advice of an experience surgeon.

i ask you to please shar with me some pictures to give you an evaluation so when the times comes you will have all the information you need to have confidence and get a faster recovery with amazing results.

you can send the pictures to my patient coordination department so i can evauate them, the pictures need to be focus in your eyes.

In case blepharoplasty, it reflects all the points on operation such as reveals fine and clear eyes with natural movement of eye lids when it is blinking. At the same time it makes natural double eyelid lines based on many clinical tests. After blepharoplasy it is possible to get bigger and clearer eyes with natural look. This is the effect of blepharoplasty before and after surgery.

Hi mme,
it would impress me honestly if these remedies would work ....
but please , keep me informed about the results ( yes or no) !
vision? normally eyelid surgery doesn't affect vision. But you should be careful to undergo eyelid surgery if you already have vision/eye problems to start with
especially after lower eyelid surgery. your surgeon will explain this further with you.
Scars: these are considered as the most inconspicuous of the whole body , so if you heal well with patience and preparation, this should normally not give problems.
kind regards
