Can a Blepharoplasty in Toronto Refresh Your Aging Eyes?

LEARN MORE ABOUT BLEPHAROPLASTY PROCEDURES

Do your eyes betray your age? Toronto blepharoplasty is a long-term solution that delivers dramatic refreshment through tiny incisions. We’ll explain how eyelid surgery smoothes and tightens the eye area where people often see the first troubling signs of aging.

Because the skin of your eyelids is the thinnest on your face, it’s incredibly delicate. You move your eyes regularly to express yourself, squint and smile. Over time, the natural elasticity in that tissue fades, so sagging and wrinkles form, and the eye muscles holding fat pads in, become lax.

Do you notice a perpetually puffy under-eye look? Do people ask if you’re tired even though you’ve slept plenty? Perhaps your upper lids are drooping? Blepharoplasty addresses these eyelid concerns and leaves virtually invisible scars. No wonder it’s so popular. Let’s take a closer look.

What to expect when undergoing blepharoplasty in Toronto

Blepharoplasty is a term used to describe a few different techniques. They’re all designed to rejuvenate the eye area, but they use varying methods to do this. For instance, you may be reasonably young and have good skin tone, but wish to reduce protruding under eye fat pads. This can be achieved without removing the skin in most cases, and the incision will be placed on the inner side of the lid with a transconjunctival technique.

Alternately, the upper eyelids may be drooping, requiring an ellipse of skin to be excised. The incisions for upper lids are placed within the natural crease so once healed, they’re incredibly faint and hide very well.

Lower lid surgery may also remove the skin, reposition fat pads, or allow for repair of ligaments and muscle. The complexity of procedures range and both upper and lower lids can be treated together.

Double eyelid surgery is another commonly requested Toronto blepharoplasty designed to transform a mono lid into a defined, double eyelid.

Which type is right for you? The best way to find out is to meet with an experienced facial plastic surgeon for consultation.

We all know that one of the most captivating and expressive facial areas can be a person’s eyes. Find out more about how blepharoplasty can help you.

Consultation for blepharoplasty

Each patient should have a plan formed according to their needs, desires, and their existing anatomy. Your surgeon will listen to your concerns you about your eyes, and what you’d like to achieve. They’ll examine you and ask some relevant medical questions.

Certain eye conditions may preclude you from having elective eyelid surgery, so it’s essential to meet with a qualified surgeon and discuss your situation in detail.

Blepharoplasty in Toronto can be done with local or IV sedation, or general anaesthesia. Your surgeon will explain the risks and considerations for the procedure, as well as what to expect from your recovery.

Though incisions and can be expected to heal quickly and fade fast, optimal results depend on excellent follow-up care and following instructions at home. You’ll need to plan a week or so off, depending on your daily activities. It’s a good idea to arrange extra help with anything requiring sharp vision so you can rest your eyes and relax safely. You won’t be able to drive for at least one week while your eyes recover from temporary swelling.

Combinations with blepharoplasty

Upper and lower blepharoplasty may also be done along with an endoscopic browlift or autologous fat grafting. These techniques allow the facial surgeon to elevate brows, or strategically sculpt a smooth transition between lower lid and cheek, filling any hollows permanently.

Waiting isn’t always best

People often hold off on surgical enhancements, believing that non-surgical and topical treatments are safer and should be exhausted first. The issue with that approach is that horizontal forehead lines form as people attempt to raise their own brows continually, and significant money can be spent on high-end eye creams long after they cease to have any effect. There comes a time when lax skin must be excised to achieve a lifted look.

Eyelid lifts today are designed to be subtle, not removing any more skin or fat than necessary. This results in soft, natural and healthy-looking eyes that are age appropriate but revitalized. If you’d like to discuss your possibilities for a fresher appearance, we welcome you to schedule your personal consultation with our facial experts.
