About Eyelid Surgery

The eyes are a unique component of the face that deserve to be shown; however, an abundance of sagging skin above or under the eyes can create an aging look. Midland, MI Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. David Yonick offers blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) to remove excess skin and lift the upper or lower eyelid, creating a look that appears softer and rejuvenated. Countless men and women undergo eyelid surgery at Yonick Plastic Surgery to remove puffy bulges, which helps with both functionality and facial appearance. Upper and lower eyelid surgery creates a fresh, youthful appearance and can produce subtle yet striking improvements.

Ideal Candidates

Eyelid surgery is a cosmetic surgery that is sought out by both men and women. During your private consultation, treatment alternatives will be discussed with Dr. Yonick based on your symptoms that need to be addressed. In most cases, ideal candidates wish to correct excess, hanging skin and folds above their eyes or bulging skin below bottom eyelid. These conditions can cause vision impairment that can hinder of daily life. For a rejuvenated appearance, eyelid surgery may be the right procedure for you. If you have loose skin that droops on the upper eyelid or bags under the eyes, blepharoplasty can correct this to give you a younger appearance.

Surgical Technique

During blepharoplasty, depending on the complexity of the surgery, general anesthesia or IV sedation will be given. Eyelid surgery may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom eyelid, or a combination of both upper and lower during the same surgery.

  • Upper
    Upper blepharoplasty assists in diminishing the hanging of skin that droops over the eye and creates a more appealing eyelid appearance. An incision is usually made along the lash line or crease to trim away tissue and fat.
  • Lower
    Lower eyelid surgery is performed to reduce puffy skin under the lower eyelid. The incision is placed just under the lash line to allow access to remove fatty tissue, and the skin is delicately lifted to produce a smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser treatment can be applied to assist with discoloration, while dermal fillers can be used for added smoothness if necessary.

What to Expect

Blepharoplasty can last up to two hours based on whether one or both eyes are treated. After the procedure, you should take a few days to rest and avoid strenuous activities. Ice packs can help reduce bruising and swelling. The results from blepharoplasty can last years and although the results are lasting, the aging process does not stop. To complement the surgical outcomes, facial rejuvenation treatments at Yonick Plastic Surgery such as lasers, chemical peels, and fillers can be paired to create an uplifted appearance.
