Wrinkles and sagging skin around our eyes can make us look tired and older than we feel. Puffy pouches of fat in the upper or lower lids create an exhausted appearance, and excessive skin in the upper eyelid can even interfere with vision. For men and women alike in Toledo, eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) can offer the facial rejuvenation they desire.
Toledo plastic surgeon Dr. Colville or Dr. Zavell can help you look dramatically younger and more rested through eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) surgery. If sagging eyelids are interfering with your vision, then an eyelid lift can widen your visual field, creating less strain on your eyes.
The incisions are made where the natural crease should be in the upper lids and below the lash line in the lower lids, and excess fat and skin are removed. If only excess fat is present in the lower lids, it may be removed through an incision inside the lower lids with no external incision or scar (called a transconjunctival blepharoplasty).
Length of Blepharoplasty Surgery
Our Toledo eyelid lift surgery takes 1 to 2 hours.
Anesthesia Requirements of Eyelid Lift Surgery
Eyelid lift surgery is done with general sedation.
Toledo Eyelid Lift Plastic Surgery
Eyelid lift plastic surgery is performed on an outpatient basis.
Side Effects of Eyelid Lift Plastic Surgery
Swelling, bruising, numbness, and itching are possible side effects of eyelid lift plastic surgery.
Recovery from Eyelid Lift Plastic Surgery
All sutures are usually removed within 4 to 6 days. Initial mild discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication. Bruising and sensitivity to light last at least a week or two, and swelling progressively disappears in 1 to 2 weeks. Eye makeup can be used after sutures are removed, and contact lenses can be worn when comfortable—usually within 7 to 10 days.
