What is Blepharoplasty (or Eyelid Surgery?)

Over time and with exposure to the sun and other elements, the tissues around the eyes tend to change in shape and appearance. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgery that can revitalize your eyes and give your face a bright, rejuvenated, and well-rested look.

Upper eyelid incisions are hidden in the eyelid crease, and lower eyelid incisions are often made on the inside of the eyelid so they can’t be seen.

Although the procedure typically involves removal of extra skin and reshaping or repositioning of the normal fat pockets around the eye, there are many variations that can be utilized. The methods used in your surgery will depend upon what you most need to address.

What ever you need, you can rest assured Dr. Asaria will help you to accomplish a refreshed, youthful look with quality blepharoplasty in Toronto..

Eye Lift: What It Addresses

Why is eyelid surgery necessary?

The skin around the eyes is very delicate. Our eyelids are constantly moving and as a result, the eyes show signs of aging earlier than other parts of the face. Over time, the muscles and ligaments responsible for opening and closing the eyelid become stretched which causes sagging. Drooping upper eyelids project tiredness and old age and can even hinder vision.

Eyelid Surgery and the Business World

If you feel your eyes make you look older than you are, the remedy is blepharoplasty. Toronto has a highly competitive job market and sometimes the difference between getting the dream job is a matter of projecting youth and vigor. Many people suffer from premature aging in the eyes which can affect how people see them.

Upper eyelid lift

With an upper eyelid lift, the muscles responsible for opening the eyelids may be shortened to restore proper function if this is the cause of eyelid droop. In some patients, the underlying muscle is fine; it is sagging skin that is causing unwanted drooping. Another issue with aging in the eyes is fat deposits in the upper lids.

Why choose Dr. Asaria?

Restoring a youthful, alert appearance in the eye area requires finesse as well as surgical skill. Dr. Asaria is a respected facial plastic surgeon with a passion for perfection. His goal is to provide world class eye lift surgery for his Toronto patients, restoring self confidence in their personal and professional lives. Dr. Asaria is a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Functional Eyelid Surgery

If loose skin in the upper lid drops below the iris it can partially obstruct vision. Patients who have their vision obstructed by loose skin will need functional blepharoplasty to restore full peripheral vision. This surgery is not designed to improve appearance but rather to improve vision or to make it possible to wear glasses or contact lenses. Even if improving appearance isn’t the primary goal, the result will still be a refreshed more youthful appearance.

Other reasons for functional eye lift surgery are skin irritation in the upper lids from skin folds rubbing together as well as muscle fatigue in the forehead caused by straining to elevate sagging lids.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Patients with pronounced pockets of fatty tissue under the eyes look tired no matter how much sleep they have had. The pockets can become more pronounced when patients are under stress or retaining water. No topical solution is effective in remedying this problem.

At Face Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Asaria routinely helps his patients rid themselves of embarrassing under eye pouches, providing among the best blepharoplasty Toronto has available.

Some patients have a second area of edema just over the cheekbones giving the impression of a double row of bags. These are called festoons and require a coordinated surgical plan that addresses both issues separately. Only addressing the area directly under the eye can actually focus attention on festoons.

If the lower lid has become stretched and does not rest snugly against the eye it will expose the white under the iris. Surgery will tighten these muscles restoring proper function of the lower lid which is in part to keep the area free of debris.

Recovering From Blepharoplasty

Most patients are delighted to find that recovering from blepharoplasty is easier than expected. They report that they feel mild discomfort after the procedure and easily manage what little there is with over the counter pain medication.

Performed as an outpatient procedure

Eyelid lift surgery is an outpatient procedure, so you will be able to recover in the comfort of your own home, following your eyelid surgery in Toronto. You should rest as much as possible for the first few days, concentrating on allowing your body to heal. It is important to keep your head elevated while sleeping or laying down to avoid increasing swelling. Patients who can do this experience faster healing.

First day post-surgery

The use of cold packs is recommended to minimize swelling and bruising. On the first day , the packs should be applied every hour you are awake for 10 or 15 minutes. This schedule can be reduced to every few hours on the second day and third day.

Days following surgery

During the first few days you will see bruising, swelling and possibly redness in the whites of your eyes. This will diminish over the next week and by the end of the second or third week, about 90% of the exterior healing should be complete.

Returning to work

The speed at which you can return to work or social activities depends on several factors. Healing will be faster for patients simply having skin removed than for patients also having fat removed with muscle adjustment.

What about scarring?

Incisions for lower lid surgery are usually made from inside the lid so there will be no visible scar. Patients having upper lid surgery will have visible incisions that will eventually become virtually indistinguishable. Most patients can return to work and social activities after about 10 days on average.

What if I have an upcoming event?

If you have a big event coming up, plan your surgery for a few months before the event to ensure you will be camera ready on the big day.

Planning Your Eyelid Surgery

When you come to FACE Cosmetic Surgery, your first step will be to meet with Dr. Asaria for a private consultation at his office in Yorkville, Toronto. During this consult, he will discuss your goals and expectations with you in detail. This consultation will also be your opportunity to get professional suggestions and an expert opinion from an experienced facial plastic surgeon.

Once your goals have been clearly established Dr. Asaria will work with you to compose a treatment outline that is completely tailored to you. He makes it a point to work closely with each patient, often sketching out the details of what he plans to do in order to achieve the look they want.

Excellent communication between patient and surgeon is crucial in the planning stage of surgery. Dr. Asaria takes great care to ensure that each of his patients feels one completely comfortable with their treatment plan before surgery begins.
