Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)

Rice Cosmetic Surgery, Toronto Ontario

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is plastic surgery of the upper or lower eyelids intended to reshape the area by removing and/or relocating excess skin and fatty tissue. Some patients suffer from sagging eyelids that make them look tired, old, or sad and undergo blepharoplasty purely for cosmetic reasons. Sometimes, blepharoplasty becomes necessary when the upper eyelids are sagging so much that they are interfering with the patient’s vision or drooping into the eye, causing irritation, infections, and other problems. Meanwhile, puffy eyelid “bags” and wrinkles that form under the eyes can often be treated with lower blepharoplasty. Toronto-based plastic cosmetic surgeon Dr. Sean Brian Rice specializes in performing eyelid surgery for such patients.

Blepharoplasty Surgery

Blepharoplasty is performed by making incisions in the eyelid, either from inside the eyelid or in the external natural creases and folds of the eyelid. The surgeon then removes excess skin and fatty tissue from the eyelid and reshapes the area into a more attractive form before closing the incisions. The surgeon may also reinforce the internal muscles and tendons that lift and lower the eyelid to further stabilize and firm up the area.
A blepharoplasty procedure takes from one to three hours to complete, depending on whether one or both of the eyes are affected as well as on the degree of correction that is required. Recovery from blepharoplasty begins with initial swelling and bruising in the first one to two weeks after the procedure, and it can take several months before the final result of the surgery becomes apparent.
