Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)

Blepharoplasty is one of the most intricate plastic surgeries and can result in stunning natural results. Eyes are the focal point of the face. Aging, stress, and other factors can cause the skin around the eyes to lose their natural shape and color.

Drooping eyelids is a common problem that occurs with aging; creating a tired appearance. Another major issue caused by sagging lids is blockage of the vision. If the eyelids sag too much, it can affect peripheral vision.

Blepharoplasty involves the removal of excess tissues from the upper eyelids or the lower eyelids or both depending on the issues in need of correction. It can be done on both men and women, and women continue to be the majority who choose this surgery. The results can be impressive and can leave you looking younger and rejuvenated.

Why Choose Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty can be performed for aesthetic reasons or to improve the vision. The aesthetic issues that come with the aging process include eyelid wrinkles, drooping skin, puffiness, and undereye bags. This procedure can take care of all of these issues, leaving the eyes and eyelids revitalized.

When the upper eyelids start sagging too low, there can be a functional issue that presents itself alongside the aesthetic problems. If your peripheral vision seems to appear blurred, it may be due to the sagging of your upper eyelids or even excess skin on the lower eyelids. This can be corrected with blepharoplasty surgery, allowing you to have a clear field of vision again.

During a blepharoplasty consultation, our surgeons will evaluate your eyelids and face and will discuss your needs and goals for the procedure. Our surgeons will then create a surgical plan to help you correct your eyelid issues.

What to Expect During the Surgery

Blepharoplasty does not require intense hospitalization and this is an outpatient surgery. Local anesthesia with IV sedation or general anesthesia is administered. Anesthesia ensures that the eyelid region becomes numb during the procedure so that the patient can be comfortable.

Some cases require correction of both upper and lower eyelids, while others only require correction of a single lid or set of lids.

The incisions on the lower eyelids are made either right below the lash line or on the inner side of the eyelid.

After the incisions have been created, the surgeon will have access to the underlying bulging fat and drooping tissues. The excess fat, skin, and muscle tissue will be removed, tightened, or repositioned as needed.

Recovery

You will be able to return home the same day as your procedure. It will be important to arrange in advance for a ride home from a friend or family member, along with some help with everyday activities for a short time.

While your eyelids are healing, avoid too much sun exposure and protect your eyelids with sunglasses and proper application of sunscreen.

A degree of bruising and swelling will occur around the treated region. This will be temporary, and ice packs and other pain-relief methods may be suggested. You may also experience dry eyes, which can be moistened with prescribed ointment or other recommended solutions.
