Eyelid Surgery: Not Just Cosmetic!

Eyelid surgery, also known as an eye lift or blepharoplasty, reduces overhanging skin from the upper eyelids and also reduces bagginess from lower eyelids. This is usually done for cosmetic reasons, but can also be an effective way to improve sight. This may be for clients who have excess skin on their eyelids, which gets in the way of their vision and peripheral sight. Gardner Plastic Surgery in Naples, Florida can help you achieve a smoother, more youthful-looking eye area.

When Should I Consider Eyelid Surgery?

As skin ages, it slowly loses elasticity. Lacking elasticity combined with the natural pull in gravity can cause extra skin to droop on the upper and lower eyelids. This excess skin on lower eyelids can cause wrinkles and bulges to appear, making a person look older than they may be. Upper eyelids can experience an extra bit of skin that hangs over the eyelashes and can give the appearance of tiredness. One thing to keep in mind if you are considering getting eyelid surgery is that the surgery will not remove dark circles, crow's feet, or wrinkles on the face.

What Is the Eyelid Surgery Process?

Eyelid surgery can enhance a tired and aging appearance and help boost self-confidence. Additional procedures may need to be done in order to achieve an entirely new look. Injections and facials can improve on wrinkles, crow’s feet, and other appearance issues, but eyelid surgery can do a wonderful job on opening up the eyes and revealing a more energized-looking face. Once eyelid surgery is performed, the results can last up to seven years depending on the procedure.

Eyelid surgery may take up to two hours if both upper and lower eyelids are being worked on. For the upper lids, Dr. Garner at Gardner Plastic Surgery will cut along the natural folds of your eyelids. Excess skin, fat, and muscle will be removed from this incision. Tiny stitches will seal the procedure and remain for approximately one week.

What Happens After Eyelid Surgery?

It is normal to experience swelling and some light bruising, but the eyelids should look rested and normal within a few weeks.
