Sagging skin and puffy fat deposits on your upper or lower eyelids may give you tired, old or sad appearance. Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) targets either the Upper Eyelid or Lower Eyelid and removes this excess skin and fat to help you look more youthful and rested by tightening muscles, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
If your brow has fallen Dr Edinburg may also recommend a Brow Lift, which will further help rejuvenate your face.
The procedure for Upper Eyelid Surgery involves making an incision along the natural eyelid creases to disguise scars. Excess skin is removed and if needed, muscle is tightened slightly to lift the eye area.For Lower EyelidSurgery, an incision is made just below the lower lash line, through which excess skin and fat is removed.Dissolvable stitches or surgical tape closes the wound.
After surgery, your eyes may be covered with gauze and you may experience swelling, bruising and dry eyes, which should subside after a week or so. The final resultsof your eyelid surgery will become apparent after several weeks, leaving you with a more alert, refreshed appearance.
Dr Edinburg will tailor the treatment according to your specific needs.For example, some patients need the under-eye fat pockets removed, while for others, removing them would result in a hollowed-out look, so a different approach is needed.
Eyelid Surgery can also be combined with a Face Lift or Brow Lift, as well as Laser Resurfacing, Medical-grade Peels, WrinkleRelaxer Injections, Wrinkle Filler Injections (Dermal Fillers), to improve lines in the lid area.
