Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty
Your eyes speak volumes. They are how you convey emotion, how you engage with others, and they often say more than words ever could.
As we age, this delicate area is the hardest hit by genetics, gravity, the sun and the environment. The eyelids sag. We look tired. Grouchy. We may give off signals that we don’t mean to. They belie how we feel.
Blepharoplasty is amongst the most personalized of any plastic surgery procedure. It requires the artistry, skill, and expertise of a surgeon who has really listened to your story, your concerns and your wishes. Whose uncompromising standards and attention to detail will have you looking your best—and like yourself again.
Why people have this procedure:
Achieve a more youthful, rested appearance by correcting the hollows or “bags” under the eyes.
Improve the appearance of excess skin that affects the natural line of the eyelids, giving a fresh new look.
If the upper eyelids have quite a bit of excess tissue, the skin can hang down enough to impair vision.
At your initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss your goals with you, and together you will formulate a surgical plan to achieve them. Our surgeons are meticulous about preoperative measurements and careful execution when dealing with the delicate eye area.
An upper eye lifts trim away excess skin hooding and puffiness, with the resulting incision hidden in the natural eyelid crease. This procedure opens up your eyes, making you appear younger and more alert.
A lower eyelid lift can make a person’s eyes look younger and refreshed and rested. The incision is hidden inside the eyelid, then the fatty pouches beneath the eyes are removed. On rare occasions, an incision is made directly below the lashes to remove excess skin from the lower eyelid area, if necessary.
You should be quite presentable to the public in 10-14 days, but it may be a few months before healing is fully complete.
There is initial swelling and bruising that occurs after the procedure, and takes about 1 to 2 weeks to resolve
Cold compresses will be necessary for the first few days
Avoid bending or strenuous activity
You must keep your head elevated while you sleep for at least 2 weeks or as directed by your surgeon.
Personalize your results with:
Removal of the excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids. This surgery gives a more alert, rejuvenated and youthful look.
Removal of fat pockets underneath the eyes. This procedure gives tired looking eyes a fresh, new look.
Ptosis, or drooping eyelid(s) is corrected by a number of surgical techniques, depending upon the degree and cause of your condition.
Festoons, also known as malar bags, are areas of lax, puffy skin beneath the eyes, that appear to “drape” below the orbit of the eyes. This can be due to excess fatty tissue, and/or muscle laxity.
