What is Blepharoplasty? A Rejuvenating Eyelid Surgery

/

As you age, your skin begins to lose its elasticity leaving you with wrinkles, sagging, and puffiness around your face. Your eyes are no exception. Excess skin and fat around the eyelids can make your eyes look tired and even affect your vision. Blepharoplasty is a form of plastic surgery that eases these signs of aging to give your eyes a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Types of Blepharoplasty Surgeries

Upper Eyelid

A sagging upper eyelid can age your appearance and affect your vision. During an upper eyelid blepharoplasty, one of our doctors will make an incision along your natural crease and remove excess tissue. Tightening the skin will prevent your eyelid from drooping into your field of vision and rejuvenate your appearance.

Puffy lower eyelid

Lower Eyelid

Puffy bags under your eyes can make you look tired. During a lower eyelid blepharoplasty, one of our doctors will make an incision just below your lash line to remove excess tissue, tighten the skin, and improve the natural contours. This step gives your eyes a more alert and youthful appearance. 

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

Look Younger Longer

If you are looking for age-defying results that last, then non-invasive treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic might not be enough. Eyelid surgery not only offers dramatic improvements, but the benefits typically last for years, not months. Blepharoplasty patients typically do not need another treatment for at least a decade.

Improve Your Vision

A sagging upper eyelid and excessive puffiness can interfere with your vision, especially your peripheral vision. Blepharoplasty surgery removes excess tissue from your upper and lower eyelids and tightens the remaining skin so you can see better.

Restore Your Confidence

The way we view our appearance affects the way we present ourselves to the world. If you are feeling like your eyes make you look tired, haggard, or older than you are, that may affect your confidence and how you interact with people around you. Blepharoplasty surgery can rejuvenate your eyes and restore your confidence.

What To Expect During the Blepharoplasty Procedure

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure typically completed in just one to two hours. Each patient needs to have someone with them who can drive them to and from the medical center. We have offices in Sidney, Bellefontaine, Celina, and Troy, which makes care convenient for people throughout West Central Ohio.
Blepharoplasty is a highly-customized plastic surgery tailored to your unique needs.

Day of Procedure

Blepharoplasty is a highly-customized plastic surgery tailored to your unique needs.

Anesthesia

You will be given general anesthesia so you can be asleep and comfortable throughout the surgery.

Incisions

Each incision will be made in the most discreet way possible so that scars are well-hidden. For the upper eyelid, the incision will be along your natural crease line. For the lower eyelid, the incision will be along the lash line.

Rejuvenation

Once the incisions have been made, your doctor will remove excess fat and skin. Then they will tighten and smooth the remaining skin to give your eyes a reinvigorated and more youthful appearance.

Recovery

Most patients can go home to recover immediately following their surgery. Your doctor will give you a list of instructions on things to do to help prevent bruising, swelling, or other side effects of surgery. Following these instructions will ensure the quickest and safest recovery and avoid complications.
