Eyelid Surgery 

When it comes to taking years off your appearance, few procedures go as far as facial rejuvenation surgeries. Among these, procedures that treat the eyes can have the most profound effect. Depending on your needs, a brow lift, eyelid surgery, or a combination of the two can make you appear more youthful and vibrant.

Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic procedure but can also improve eyesight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision. The procedure is usually performed in an office with local anesthesia in as little as 45 minutes.

The procedure can be combined with a facelift or BOTOX® treatments to raise the eyebrows or reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet or dark circles under the eyes.

Eyelid Surgery or Blepharoplasty can be both aesthetic, and functional. Sometimes, eyes are damaged by trauma, infection, inflammation, degeneration or by developmental deficiencies. Blepharoplasty can help the eye to be functionally normal. It also serves a cosmetic purpose, restoring and rejuvenating the appearance of the eyes for a more youthful and alert appearance.

Many men who would not otherwise consider cosmetic surgery do undergo Eyelid Surgery. In some cases, they feel it is a necessity to remain competitive in today’s challenging, and increasingly youth-oriented, workplaces. Also, many people will undergo Eyelid Surgery as a way to freshen their appearance while they delay having a Full Facelift.

Procedure

In general, incisions are made following the natural lines of the eyelids – in the creases of the upper eyelids, and just below the lashes in the lower lids. Your cosmetic surgeon then separates skin from fatty tissue and muscle. Excess fat is removed. When necessary, skin and muscle are contoured. Your plastic surgeon will close the incisions with very fine sutures.

Other facial aesthetic units such as the brows or the frown muscles can also be addressed while the eyelids are open. For example, a Trans-palpebral corrugator muscle excision can permanently soften the frowns and the forehead; and a Trans-Palpebral Brow-lift or Browpexy can reposition sagging brows to their original natural position. 

At the end of the procedure, the upper or lower eyelid incision is precisely closed with hair-like fine sutures.

 

Recovery

Slightly longer than most other forms of cosmetic surgery (generally 5-7 days and often some bruising around the eyes for a few days); however, the benefits are long-lasting. Patients will have a more rested and youthful appearance.
