As we age, the delicate skin around our eyes can lose elasticity, leading to drooping eyelids, puffy under-eye bags, and a tired or aged appearance. Fortunately, eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, offers a transformative solution to restore a youthful, refreshed look to your eyes and overall face.

The Impact of Eyelid Surgery on Facial Aesthetics

Eyelid surgery can have a profound impact on facial aesthetics. By addressing sagging eyelids and under-eye bags, the procedure can:

  • Open up your eyes: Drooping upper eyelids can create a heavy, tired look and even obstruct vision in some cases. Blepharoplasty can lift and tighten the eyelids, making your eyes appear brighter and more alert.
  • Reduce puffiness: Bags under the eyes can make you look older and more fatigued. Eyelid surgery removes excess fat and skin, smoothing out the under-eye area and creating a more youthful appearance.
  • Improve facial symmetry: Blepharoplasty can address asymmetry between the eyelids, resulting in a more balanced and harmonious facial appearance.
  • Enhance overall facial rejuvenation: Eyelid surgery can complement other facial rejuvenation procedures, such as facelifts or brow lifts, for a more comprehensive transformation.

Types of Eyelid Surgery

There are different types of blepharoplasty, depending on the specific concerns you wish to address:

  • Upper eyelid surgery: This procedure removes excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids to reduce drooping and improve vision.
  • Lower eyelid surgery: This surgery addresses under-eye bags by removing or repositioning excess fat and tightening the skin.
  • Combined upper and lower eyelid surgery: This comprehensive approach addresses both upper and lower eyelid concerns in a single procedure.

What To Expect During and After Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with sedation. The procedure usually takes 1-3 hours, depending on the extent of correction. Dr. Moraitis will make incisions along the natural creases of your eyelids, minimizing the visibility of scars.

After surgery, you may experience some swelling and bruising, which is normal and will gradually subside. Dr. Moraitis will provide detailed post-operative instructions to promote a comfortable recovery. Most patients can return to their daily activities within a week or two.
