Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery

Your eyes are considered the “window to your soul,” because your eyes are one of your most important tools for communication. Over time, the thin skin in the eye area begins to sag. This means your upper eyelid may droop, aging your entire face and making you appear tired or sad. Sometimes the loose skin evens obscure your vision.

An eye lift, also called an upper blepharoplasty, can address this issue and give you eyes that appear bigger, brighter, alert, and more youthful.  

Who’s it for?

Healthy patients who have loose or sagging skin on the upper eyelids—particularly if it disturbs vision. It’s also for you if you don’t have an upper eyelid crease and would like our surgeons to create one.

What’s treatment like?

You’ll have local or general anaesthesia, and an incision will be made that, once healed, will leave scars well-hidden in the folds and contours of your eyes. Depending on the structure of your face, fat deposits around the eyes will be removed or repositioned and excess skin will be trimmed.

Postoperative pain is minimal, but your eyes will be bruised and swollen. It will be about 4-7 days before you can return to work and normal activities, depending on what your specific blepharoplasty entails.

An upper blepharoplasty can be performed in conjunction with a lower blepharoplasty, if needed.

What are the risks?All surgeries carry risks for medical complications, which your surgeon will discuss with you.

Don’t take aspirin, Advil, fish oil, or other blood thinners for two weeks before and after surgery, to lessen bruising and bleeding.

What are the results?

You’ve effectively turned back the clock on your eye area—which, in many cases, means you’ve refreshed your entire face. Your eyes will appear bigger, smoother, and more open.
