Eye Rejuvenation

What cosmetic concerns are treated with eyelid surgery?

As you age, your eyelid muscles weaken, the eyelids stretch, and fat accumulates above and below your eyelids. These changes can create the following issues, and eyelid surgery can correct them all:

  • Fatty deposits that make eyelids look puffy
  • Bags under eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids that reveal too much white
  • Excess skin on lower eyelids
  • Fine wrinkles on the lower eyelids
  • Loose or sagging upper eyelids that stop eyes from opening completely
  • Excess skin on upper eyelids that blocks vision

When you want to improve the appearance of your eyelids, or you need to change them because the excess skin is uncomfortable, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is the solution.

What happens during eyelid surgery?

Blepharoplasty may be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both at the same time. Upper eyelid surgery is performed through an incision made in the crease of the eyelid, while the incision for lower eyelid surgery goes just below the eyelashes.

In both cases, the incisions are made in areas where the scar will be concealed. Plus, your Revive Wellness Center surgeon can remove excess skin, fat, and muscle from either location.

What should you expect after eyelid surgery?

These symptoms commonly develop following eyelid surgery:

  • Blurred vision from lubricating ointment
  • Watering eyes
  • Light sensitivity
  • Double vision
  • Puffy, numb eyelids
  • Pain or discomfort
  • Swelling or bruising similar to a black eye

All of these side effects should resolve in 2-3 weeks. In the meantime, your doctor at Revive Wellness Center will give you detailed care instructions; for example, you’ll need to clean your eyelids with prescription ointments, avoid straining and strenuous activities, and sleep with your head higher than your chest for a few days. It’s also important to quit smoking because it interferes with healthy healing.

Does eyelid surgery treat wrinkles or other eye issues?

Eyelid surgery does not remove dark circles, change the position of your eyebrows, or eliminate wrinkles around the eyes like crow’s feet. A different surgical procedure can be performed to create a natural-looking, permanent eyelid crease.

You can also have other procedures, such as an eyebrow lift, done at the same time as your eyelid surgery.

Top-heavy eyelids are one of the most noticeable features in an aging face. If it’s time to rejuvenate your appearance, please call Revive Wellness Center or schedule an appointment online.
