Upper and Lower Eyelid Surgery

Basics of Eyelid Lift Surgery

Eyelid surgery, which is known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure to correct cosmetic and functional issues with your upper and / or lower eyelids. Generally, if the issue is with your upper lids, an incision is made in the natural fold or crease in the upper eyelid and if the problem lies in the lower lids, the incision is made below your eyelashes.

Depending on the nature of the problem, excess skin may be removed, a section of fat may be removed or a combination of both may be removed.

Toronto Eyelid Lift Surgery Fast Facts:

  • Staying overnight is not required, but follow-up visits with Dr. Sliwin must be scheduled.
  • Scarring is minimal, and the positioning of the incisions rarely make them visible.
  • Bruising around the eyes is common and may last for several days.
  • It is usually recommended to leave the area dry and clean for up to 1 week.
  • Plan for 1 to 2 weeks away from work and regular activities after the procedure.
  • Wearing glasses after the lift is not an issue.
  • Results of the procedure are permanent, but normal aging will continue.

Does This Sound Like You?

The reasons for upper and lower eyelid lift surgery are both cosmetic and functional. Normal aging and gravity can have a dramatic effect on your eyelids, resulting in situations such as:

  • Sagging, loose skin that makes you look older.
  • Increased volume creating a look of chronic fatigue.
  • Large bags or circles under the eyes that won’t go away.
  • Impaired vision due to heavy eyelids.

Benefits of Eyelid Lift Surgery

Whether your eyelid problems are cosmetic or create difficulties with your vision, you will notice some exciting benefits after the procedure. Some of the most common benefits include:

  • More youthful appearance
  • Improved central and peripheral vision
  • More energetic appearance
  • More relaxed and contented appearance
