Eyelid surgery, (also known as blepharoplasty), is a procedure to remove excessive skin, muscle and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery will correct puffiness (“bags”) in the lower eye and restore youthful-looking upper eyelids that may droop due to excessive skin and muscle tissue.
Is Blepharoplasty right for you?
If you are experiencing crow’s feet around the eyes, dark circles under the eye or sagging eyebrows, then this surgical procedure can be replaced by other procedures offered by Dr. Dickie. Typically, blepharoplasty surgery is indicated for people with baggy, puffy lower lids, and loose, excess skin on the upper lid.
Dr. Dickie will make an incision along the natural line of the upper eyelid crease and immediately below the lower lashes of the lower lid. Excessive skin, fat and muscle may be removed. Occasionally, Dr. Dickie will perform your eyelid surgery with a specialized carbon dioxide laser, thus minimizing external scars.
Following surgery, the eyelid will feel tight and tender as the local anaesthesia wears off. Bruising and swelling is temporary and will take approximately 10 days to return to normal. Dr. Dickie will give you eye drops which act as both a topical antibiotic and steroid. Sutures will be removed approximately one week post-operatively.
