Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Look Younger, See Better. A blepharoplasty is a type of cosmetic procedure that tightens the skin around the eyes, focusing in particular on the eyelids. Also known as an eye lift, this lid surgery will reduce the droopiness from the lower eyelids and eliminate extra skin from the upper eyelids. This surgery is often done for cosmetic reasons, but it can also fix sight problems caused by eyelid skin drooping down over the field of vision. After blepharoplasty, your eyes will look brighter and full of vitality.schedule appointment
Benefits Of Blepharoplasty
upper lid Excess skin of the upper lids decreases our peripheral vision, making it more difficult to keep our lids fully open. It can also push our eyelashes into the eyes. By removing the excess skin (and fat when indicated), these issues are eliminated.
We perform this procedure in the office. It takes approximately 45 minutes. Sutures are removed in 5-7 days, and some bruising may last for 10 days. Ice is used for the first 48 hours to reduce swelling and bruising. Most general daily activities are permitted the day after surgery, including showering.
lower lidExcess skin and looseness of the lower lid can cause the lid to sag and for the lashes to either turn in rubbing the eye, or for tearing to occur. By removing any excess skin and fat and tightening the lid, these problems are eliminated.
This procedure is performed either in the office or surgical center as an outpatient procedure. Surgical time ranges from 30 minutes to one hour. Post-operative care is the same as for upper lids.
