Eyelid Surgery in Toronto: Am I a Candidate?
Eyelid surgery is appropriate for a wide range of patients who are in good general health but are bothered by droopy upper eyelids or puffy under-eye bags. While most eyelid surgery patients are in their 40s and 50s, people in their 30s also pursue this treatment to remove premature signs of aging. We will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine whether you are an eyelid surgery Toronto candidate. Reasons why we might recommend eyelid surgery include:
- Excess or loose eyelid skin
- Puffy bags under the eyes
- Functional problems such as droopy eyelids or obstructed vision
Preparing for Your Eyelid Surgery
We recognize that the decision to pursue eyelid surgery is often the result of prolonged deliberations and anxiety. We take the time to explain exactly what will happen during surgery, how long the recovery will take, and what the results might look like. We also answers any questions our patients might have and address all of their concerns. Our goal is to make our Toronto blepharoplasty patients feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible on the day of surgery and throughout the recovery period.
Like all surgical treatments, eyelid surgery is associated with several risks. Possible complications include bleeding, infection and excessive swelling. These risks are increased in people who smoke because the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes interfere with proper blood flow and healing. Therefore, we strongly recommend that patients who smoke, quit at least several weeks prior to their treatments.
Eyelid Lift: How Is It Performed?
At Aviva Cosmetic & Laser Clinic, we usually use general anesthesia when performing eyelid lift surgery. When performing surgery on the upper eyelids, incisions are placed in the natural folds of the lids. When performing surgery on the lower lids, the incisions are placed just below the eyelashes or on the inside of the eyelids. We use the incisions to remove excess fat and skin as well as tighten muscles, if needed, before suturing the skin into its new position. Once healed, the incisions will be well-hidden within the skin’s natural folds and will be virtually unnoticeable.
The surgery is typically completed in two to three hours, and most patients can return home on the same day. Immediately following the surgery, you will experience bruising and swelling, which is normal and can be controlled with prescription medications. For most Toronto eyelid lift patients, the swelling and bruising decreases within two weeks. At this time, you will be able to resume your normal everyday activities. However, the final results of eyelid surgery typically become apparent within a few months after surgery.
The results of eyelid surgery are permanent. You will always look better than if you had not received surgery. However, surgery does not stop the natural aging process. Therefore, you might need touch-up treatments, such as Botox injections or another surgery, in the future.
