Upper eyelid blepharoplasty with plasma may leave patients unsatisfied
Despite being minimally invasive, upper eyelid blepharoplasty with plasma may result in questionable satisfaction, according to a study.
In this observational study, 16 patients underwent upper eyelid blepharoplasty using plasma technology to treat dermatochalasis. After 7 days and again at 30 days, patients answered a questionnaire to assess satisfaction, symptoms, and quality of life.
On postoperative day 7, patients report that their physical appearance was the biggest factor impacting their quality of life. Most patients reported a higher level of satisfaction with results at day 7 follow-up. The most reported symptoms were eyelid edema and itching after 7 and 30 days, respectively.
