Blepharoplasty in Toronto is an extremely effective cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the eye area.
Also called eyelid surgery, the upper, lower or both sets of lids can be transformed to make a person look younger. This versatile and relatively simple treatment can be performed a variety of ways, for men and women of all ages. When the time comes that your eyes have a hooded appearance, or you find you look constantly tired no matter how well-rested you are, Verso Surgery centre welcomes you to schedule a consultation and consider your options for a transformational eyelid procedure.
Effects of ageing on the eyes
The delicate and thin skin in this area is also one of the first places we see the effects of ageing. The signs of damage and years of dynamic muscle movement appear as “crow’s feet,” the tiny fine lines at the outer edges and spreading over our cheekbones. The skin above and below our eyes may also begin to sag around this time as the previously strong supportive muscles, and fat pads become lax. Fat surrounding the eye may shrink or shift and this leads to hollows, drooping lids or bags underneath.
Some people are naturally prone to hereditary characteristics such as very pronounced under eye bags or excessively dropping skin above the eye. When gravity takes hold and pulls delicate features downward, there is often the minimal effect that topical lotions and treatments can have. Preserving the skin’s natural hydration and elasticity for as long as possible is highly recommended. So is sun protection and handling the area carefully.

Another, more involved lower blepharoplasty method is appropriate for older clients who have notable sagging or stretched skin in the under eye area. Along with protruding bulges, some people develop lax eyelid muscles that leave the lower lid visibly gaping and drooping downward.
When necessary, an incision hidden in the lower lash line and extending just beyond the lateral corner provides access to tighten and reinforce the delicate ligaments of the lower lid. A small ellipse of skin is removed so that laxity is reduced and smooth under-eye appearance created. A row of very fine sutures will be placed just under the lashes and eventually, the scar is nearly invisible.
Blepharoplasty for more than just eyes
Verso Surgery offers extended lower lid blepharoplasty for eyelid and midface rejuvenation. The lower lid-cheek junction and tear trough area can be integral to a person’s appearance, and due to the delicate nature of thin skin in this area, the damage is challenging to treat without surgery. Our advanced, facial plastic surgery specialists stay at the forefront of medical innovations with adaptive improvements on existing cosmetic procedures. The extended lower blepharoplasty method not only improves the lower lid/cheek junction but also substantially smoothes and rejuvenates mid-face contours without visible signs of surgery such as incisions and scars.
Lower- eyelid surgery techniques continue to evolve, and skilled surgeons can affect incredibly dramatic changes with minimal trauma, recovery time or sign of intervention. You may be surprised to learn what’s possible for you. We’d love to talk with you more and answer your questions.
