Dr. Chip Cole has decades of experience specializing in oculoplastic surgeries, which can be seen in his newest awareness campaign on blepharoplasty procedures. The campaign explores several of the most common reasons people undergo these surgeries, and the potential outcomes both positive and negative.

Complications from blepharoplasty surgeries are most often mild, with some of the most common being bruising or eye irritation, but on rare occasions, more serious problems can occur. The campaign explains that in some situations, they may require a second surgical intervention to repair the problem, such as a drooping lower eyelid, or the complications may even be permanent, such as blindness.

The campaign explains that the best way patients can avoid these complications is by ensuring they receive treatment from a qualified, experienced surgeon, and by honestly discussing any pre-conditions, health issues, or other factors before the operation. This will allow the surgeon to make informed decisions about which procedures provide the best chance of success for each patient, and which may be too risky.

The recovery process after blepharoplasty procedures is also explained in Dr. Chip Cole’s new campaign, which suggests that while many patients may perform their normal routines within a few days, it can take two to three weeks for a complete recovery. The most common issues during the recovery period include swelling, irritation, and bruising, but these symptoms are normal and rarely require further treatment.

Dr. Chip Cole has more than 33 years of experience and has performed over 33,000 surgeries, both reconstructive and rejuvenating. He has become known internationally as “The Eye Guy,” for his expertise in oculoplastic surgery, and frequently provides educational lectures.
