How Eyelid Surgery Can Give You Back Your Youthful Glow

You may feel young at heart, but your droopy, sagging eyelids can make you look older than you feel. You can fix that. Dr. Elliott H. Rose, a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon at The Aesthetic Surgery Center, can give you an eyelid surgery that can give you back your youthful glow.

Why do eyelids sag?

Over time, muscles all over your body start to lose strength. The same is true for your eyelids, which begin to sag as muscles weaken. The sagging is called ptosis, and it can make you look tired, angry, and old — even if you’re not.

Ptosis, which also can be caused by some diseases, may not just give you a bad look. Eyelids can sag so much that they can cover your pupils and limit your field of vision. That’s when eyelid surgery becomes a necessary option.

What’s blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is the medical name for eyelid surgery. With this surgery, Dr. Rose trims the droopy skin from your upper and lower eyelids to restore your eyes to their youthful and natural almond shape. Sometimes eyelid surgery is combined with a brow lift, which raises the eyebrow arch, and with resurfacing procedures, which erase skin crepiness.

Before surgery, you’ll be asked to:

How is eyelid surgery performed?

Your surgery, which will take place at The Aesthetic Surgery Center, will be performed with “twilight” sedation, which will put you into a deep sleep.

Dr. Rose will trim fat and skin and strengthen the underlying muscles that support your eyelids. Incisions will be made in the natural creases and lines, so you won’t see scars after healing.

The total procedure will take 60-90 minutes.  

After surgery, you’ll feel some pain and experience some swelling and bruising, which can be lessened by applying ice packs for 2-3 days. Swelling and bruising should fade after about a week, although some bruising may last 2-4 weeks.

Results typically last for four years, but laser touch-ups can keep your eyes looking young for many years.
