Loose eyelid skin and tissue can make you look worn-out and might even obstruct your vision. With an eyelid rejuvenation procedure, Dr. Weider can help you achieve a refreshed, awake appearance.
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can address the upper and/or lower eyelids, repositioning the tissue and removing excess skin. Dr. Weider performs eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, for women and men who desire to improve the appearance and/or functionality of the eyelids. Many people interested in eyelid surgery desire a more youthful appearance. Dr. Weider combines artistry and refined technique to rejuvenate the eyelids. During your personal consultation with Dr. Weider, you will learn about key aspects of blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) including:
- Techniques involved in the procedure
- How skin elasticity and bone structure may affect the procedure
- Facility choices such as our fully accredited surgical facility
- Guidelines to reduce the risk of complications
- Costs for eyelid surgery, including surgeon’s fees, anesthesia fees, and facility fees
A blepharoplasty can be chosen for cosmetic benefits to achieve a more youthful appearance, or to improve vision obstructed by overhanging skin. Both men and women turn to Dr. Weider for eyelid rejuvenation surgery which will:
- Reduce the appearance of wrinkles surrounding the eyes
- Improve under eye bags and sagging below the eyes
- Improve crow’s feet and laugh lines surrounding the eyes
- Improve hooded upper eyelids
- Improve the appearance of hollows and dark circles below the eyes
Dr. Weider performs blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) to achieve a natural, more youthful appearance of the eyelids. The time required for eyelid surgery may be one or more hours, depending on the extent of the procedure. During eyelid surgery, Dr. Weider may create an incision on the inside of the lower lid, which will leave no visible scar, and/or in the upper eyelid creases. Then he will remove excess skin and fat and tighten the muscle, if necessary. Finally, he will suture the incisions together.
Dr. Weider will see you within the first few days following the procedure to help ensure a smooth recovery. You will be provided with guidelines for activity restrictions and medications should you experience any discomfort. You will receive patient aftercare instructions such as soaking gauze pads in ice chips so they may be applied to the eyelids for greater comfort.
As with all medical procedures, complications may occur during or after the procedure. The guidelines provided by Dr. Weider help to reduce the risk of complications. For example, smoking increases the risk of poor healing. Dr. Weider will advise you to stop smoking for four to six weeks prior to and after the procedure. You may experience swelling, bruising, bleeding and numbness following surgery, which typically subside over time. Complications are rare and can usually be managed by Dr. Weider. Complications may include adverse anesthesia reaction, excessive bleeding, asymmetry between the eyes, and inability to fully close the eyes (usually temporary).
People generally return to work within one week to ten days following the procedure. Most blepharoplasty patients enjoy eyelid rejuvenation for many years to come. Of course, the longevity of the procedure may be affected by aging, poor lifestyle habits, and certain medical conditions.
