What is Eyelid Rejuvenation?

As you get older, the first part of your face that begins to show signs of age tends to be around the eyes. You may develop what you call bags under your eyes, crow’s feet or wrinkles around the eyes, and droopy or heavy-looking eyelids. Eyelid rejuvenation is a procedure used to eliminate the excess skin around the eyes and create a more distinct appearance in the eyelid area.

Eyelid Rejuvenation Surgery

Eyelid Rejuvenation surgery is also referred to as Blepharoplasty surgery. It can be performed in the office or outpatient procedure. The surgery typically takes an hour and has a recovery time of about 10-14 days. Some side effects often include bruising and swelling around the eyes and some blurred vision and dry eyes.

The surgery focuses on removing the fat, excess skin, bags, pouches, and wrinkles in the eye area. This is done to create a more youthful appearance.

Upper eyelid rejuvenation surgery involves making incisions along the crease and lines of the eyelid and removing the fat that is present, and extracting the muscle and skin.

In the lower eyelid surgery, the incision is near the lash area or inside the lower eyelid area.

Both eyelids are typically done simultaneously to give a more individualized approach and achieve the patient’s goals. The procedure is then completed through suturing.

Is Eyelid Rejuvenation Right for Me?

While this surgery is basic and straightforward, you will still need to be in good health and have realistic expectations. This surgery is unique and done particularly for every patient as not every surgery is just alike. In general, candidates for eyelid surgery include those in good health, nonsmokers, individuals with a positive outlook, and individuals without serious eye conditions. It would be best to always talk to your doctor about any medical concerns you have before the surgery to make sure you are a good candidate.

Eyelid Rejuvenation Surgery Can Help

If you are looking to get blepharoplasty, you may want to know what all it can treat. This surgery is suitable for:

  • loose or saggy skin that creates folds of the upper eyelid
  • excess fatty deposits on the eyelids
  • bags under the eyes
  • drooping lower eyelids
  • excess skin and wrinkles on the lower eyelid

If you are experiencing any of these problems, we can help.

Dr. Kulak did a fabulous job. She repaired a very large gaping hole where my mother’s eyelid wise. Dr. Kulak was able to do so without using a skin graft, which greatly shortened the recovery time. Now, my mother’s eyelid looks virtually the same even though about 75% of it was removed. We are extremely pleased with Dr. Kulak’s professionalism, attention to detail, concern and care. Highly... recommend her services.read more
