Our upper and lower eyelids can slowly develop a baggy appearance with time. They can become loose and sag. Sometimes the periocular fat can become more prominent and noticeable too. There are several surgical options to address each component of your eyes to create a more youthful appearance. From the fat, to the skin, to even suspending the corners of your eyes into a more aesthetically pleasing position we offer the full array of options here at Plastikos. Cosmetic eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, restoring firmness to the area surrounding the eyes and making you look more rested and alert.
Procedure: An incision within the natural crease of the upper eyelid allows access to remove excess skin, muscle and underlying fatty tissue. If no skin is being removed, an incision inside the lower eyelid may be used and fat may be removed or redistributed and muscle modified to correct a baggy lower eyelid. If skin is being removed an incision just below the lower lash line allows excess skin to be excised.
Results: Bruising should subside in 5 to 10 days and swelling should subside in 2 to 4 weeks. Your doctor may advise ice packs as well. Final results may appear in 1 to 2 months. Incision lines will continue to refine and fade for 1 year.
