EYELID SURGERY

Also known as eye lift or blepharoplasty

When to consider eyelid surgery:

• If you have excess, hanging skin covering the natural fold of the upper eyelids.
• If you have loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids over the eyelashes.
• If your upper and lower eyelids appear puffy, making your eyes look tired and aged.
• If you have deep grooves under your eyes.

Things to think about before eyelid surgery

Pros
• You will eliminate the puffiness and bags under your lower lids and the hooded skin on your upper lids, making you appear younger and healthier.
• You may no longer have vision problems related to overhanging eyelids.
• Any scars from the eye lift will be hidden in your natural eyelid creases, making them almost invisible.
Cons
• It will take time to see results after surgery.
• You’ll likely be bruised and swollen and your eyes may be itchy and dry following the procedure.
• If your eyebrows droop and you have creases in your forehead, you may also need a brow lift.

About Blepharoplasty

The skin around the eyes is particularly vulnerable to age-related changes. By the age of 35, most people notice that skin below the eyes becomes thinner and start to sag. Over the years, as the natural aging process continues, excess skin above the eyes and puffy bags below the eyes become more noticeable. These characteristics contribute to an aged and tired appearance, in addition to the excess skin on the upper eyelids which can cause vision problems. Eyelid surgery, technically referred to as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and reduces fat pockets, making the upper and lower eyelids smoother, contributing to a more youthful appearance. However, blepharoplasty does not eliminate black circles around the eyes and wrinkles commonly known as “crow’s feet”. Thus, it is possible to combine blepharoplasty with other procedures for optimal results – eyebrow lift, eye circles filling with hyaluronic acid or nano-fat or “crow’s feet” treatment with botulinum
toxin. It can also be combined with brow lift to further improve the results of blephroplasty without any additional incision. Brow lift opens up the area around the eye and further contributes to the young and alert look. Eyebags can be corrected by transposing the fat from the lower eyelids onto the tear trough area. This procedure is called lower eyelid fat transposition.
