Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic eyelid surgery takes away wrinkled skin and surplus fat of the upper eyelids. It also removes bags under the eyes and tightens lower eyelid skin.

Quite often eyelid surgery is done with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation techniques. Loose and flabby skin are taken away from the upper eyelid. If the top eyelid issue is bothered by sagging eyebrows, Dr. Scamp may suggest brow lift surgery.

Treating the bottom eyelids usually, means that an incision needs to be made below the bottom eyelashes. With this incision, loose fat, muscle, and skin are modified or removed. In some cases, fat will have to be moved to put an end to bulges or puffiness. If there isn’t too much skin on the lower eyelid, Dr. Scamp may choose to use different methods to get rid of the fat over an incision that is put on the inside of the lid.

Downtime after eyelid surgery

After the surgery, it’s not uncommon to have swelling that can last for up to seven days. Your eyesight may also be slightly compromised for a couple of days, and sunglasses will be needed to shield your eyes from the sun. Approximately, one week after surgery you should be able to wear makeup to hide any discolouration,

Cosmetic eyelid surgery removes the excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids that can constantly make you look tired or sad. It also eliminates bags under your eyes and tightens your lower eyelid skin. The result is a more alert and rested appearance. Eyelid surgery is often performed along with a facelift or other facial rejuvenation procedures. Some people have inherited traits that cause them to have eyelid surgery as early as their 20s or 30s.
