ADA eyelid surgery is no different from any other type of blepharoplasty; the reason for the name is that it's performed at a special clinic located in Boise, Idaho. All cosmetic eyelid surgery procedures are essentially the same across the country, so a specific type shouldn't play much of a factor when you're deciding where to go to have your surgery performed.

Eyelid surgery, commonly known by its medical term blepharoplasty, has been around for awhile but is becoming more popular among the middle class population. Cosmetic procedures are becoming more and more affordable with each passing year, making it easy for most people to get a procedure done. Since ADA eyelid surgery is classified as an elective cosmetic surgery, it won't be covered by insurance. This is a fact that has kept all but the wealthy away in the past, but these day's it's becoming less of a problem.

Making the decision to get ADA eyelid surgery is not one to be taken lightly, but once you have made the decision you should keep in mind several important facts about the procedure. For the most part, the recovery time is the most important because this is when infections and other complications are most likely to occur, not during the actual surgery itself. The key to a full and speedy recovery is plenty of rest and antibiotics. The antibiotics will quell the risk of infection and getting plenty of rest will keep any inordinate stress off your healing eyelids.

One of the side effects of ADA eyelid surgery that you can expect is a certain amount of bruising, tenderness, and swelling. After the incisions have been made that area of your face is going to be incredibly sore for around a week, maybe longer. If you opt for a more in-depth and complicated surgery, the bruising is likely going to be much worse. Eventually the bruising will fade, but you should be prepared to have a black eye for a little while. The same will happen with swelling. The first few days after the surgery your eyes will be swollen, which will again fade away with time. If for any reason any of these side effects don't fade away, you should get in contact with your surgeon immediately.

Either before or after the surgery takes place you should be given some information on how to protect your eyesight in the days immediately following the procedure. You'll get specific instructions on cleaning and washing your eyes, and what to do if they feel especially dry or watery. One of the common side effects is itchiness and redness, and for this your doctor might give you some eye drops.

As a general rule, it's best to keep out of the sun as much as possible for at least a week after the surgery. If you have to go outside, wear some sunglasses that will protect both your eyes and the incisions. Place sunscreen directly on the incisions to keep out excessive UV light from the sun.
