Eyelid Lift

Strong eye contact and a healthy, energetic appearance are both signs of confidence and attractiveness. But sagging, drooping skin and puffiness beneath the eyes can send the wrong message, causing an angry, overly serious, or fatigued appearance, even if you feel great.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, restores a more vibrant, younger look. By removing excess, drooping skin above the eye and fat deposits under the eye, surgery can help to rid a “tired” look caused by puffiness and wrinkling or even improve peripheral vision affected by sagging skin.

Who can benefit from eyelid surgery?

Any man bothered by an aged, tired appearance around the eyes may benefit from blepharoplasty. By restoring a more energetic, alert and youthful appearance to the eyes, blepharoplasty can have life-enhancing benefits, including:

  • An improved self-image
  • Looking more healthy and happy
  • Renewed confidence in working with clients and colleagues
  • Improved field of peripheral vision

Blepharoplasty Surgery Details

Your surgeon will make an incision along the natural lines and creases of the upper eyelids, so any scar is virtually undetectable. He then removes excess skin, fat, and muscle to restore a naturally youthful eyelid contour. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures.

Blepharoplasty is done on an outpatient basis at our fully accredited Surgery Center. Surgery takes one to two hours, depending on the complexity of the procedure, and is performed with general anesthesia. Because safety is our first concern, we always work with Board-Certified Anesthesiologists. Following surgery, you will be able to rest in the comfort of your own home.

Recovery from Eyelid Surgery

Patients may experience some degree of bruising and swelling that progressively improves over 10 to 14 days. After the first day, you’ll be encouraged to get up and move around, although you will need to limit activity for the next 3 to 5 days following surgery. Most patients return to work within 7 to 10 days and resume exercise after 1 or 2 weeks. It is also important to protect your eyes from sun and wind following eyelid surgery.
