When the delicate skin around the eyes becomes loose and sagging, it can make us look more tired than we actually feel. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both to make individuals look younger and more refreshed. Bags under the eyes can also be corrected with eyelid surgery. Patients interested in eyelid surgery will meet with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons for an initial consultation. At Nouveau Cosmetic Center and Advanced Plastic Surgery Center, your surgeon will help you create realistic expectations for surgery and help you determine your best options for treatment. Your surgeon will also address any questions or concerns you may have regarding the procedure.
- Improvement of lose/wrinkled skin of eye area
- Youthful, rested appearance of eyes
- Reduction of “puffy”, tired eyes
During eyelid surgery, excess eyelid skin and fat are removed and the eyelid area is smoothed, creating a more vibrant, alert expression. Incisions are made in areas that are well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region and heal quit well. The procedure is often performed on an outpatient basis but can be combined with other facial procedures.
Bruising and swelling will last for approximately one week, becoming progressively minimal. Any pain or discomfort that you may experience can be managed with medication. Most patients will need around two weeks before they feel comfortable returning to work and resuming most of their normal activities.
Results from eyelid surgery generally last for years, enabling patients to enjoy a more youthful and vibrant appearance. Patients can combine eyelid surgery with other facial procedures offered at our practice, such as a brow lift, face lift, neck lift, or even BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dermal Filler injections.
