Is It Time to Consider Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, can work to improve the vision and appearance of your eyes.

If you are not satisfied with the appearance of your eyes, eyelid surgery may be the right choice.


What is Eyelid Surgery?eyelid surgery

During the eyelid surgery procedure excess tissue is removed from the area surrounding the eyelid to create a more youthful appearance. Aging or other natural factors can change the appearance of your eyes over time, but eyelid surgery can work to correct these changes. This procedure targets loose and sagging skin that forms folds which disturb the natural contour of the upper eyelid, fatty deposits that create puffiness around the eyelids, bags under the eyes, drooping or sagging lower eyelids that can reveal white below the iris, and fine wrinkles around the eyelids.

Eyelid surgery takes around 1-2 hours with a recovery period of 2-3 weeks, and no overnight hospital stay is required. Ideal candidates are typically in their early thirties to late sixties, are non-smokers or willing to quit smoking prior to and for the duration of the recovery, and are in overall good health. It is also important for candidates of this procedure to have realistic goals in mind for their expected appearance.

The benefits of eyelid surgery can include:

  • Reduced signs of aging
  • May improve vision
  • Brightened appearance of dark patches under the eyes
  • Lifted appearance of hollows under the eyes
  • Smoothed skin and fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes
