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.
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.

"I had a beyond fabulous BOTOX experience at Yonick Plastic Surgery recently. I saw an Aesthetic Nurse for Botox injections and I am thrilled with the result. This appointment was very different from my previous experience with Botox at a "pop up", all for the better. I met with the Nurse prior to receiving injections, she took pictures of my face in various expressions and explained to me which wrinkles and expression lines Botox could help me with. She then studied my face and carefully made notes about where she would administer the Botox and the results I was likely to see. The injections were quick and not uncomfortable. It was explained to me that the wrinkle relaxer can take up to two weeks to spread and settle in completely and that along the way I might feel different sensations and notice my expression and facial movement might change daily. This was key to my experience because 24 hours later, my eyelids felt heavy and my eyebrows seemed to move such that I looked very strange, this would have alarmed me if without the explanation of what I could expect. This was transient, the heavy feeling and strange expressions disappeared over the next couple of days. I am thrilled with the result, my "Frankenforehead" deep creases are gone, my brow refuses to furrow and my eyes seem brighter and more open. I look like myself, but now more like my younger self!After my injections, the Aesthetic Nurse had me make an appointment to come in two weeks later for follow up appointment. She explained that this is the protocol at Yonick Plastic Surgery, at the follow up appointment, results are analyzed and touch ups can be performed if needed, more pictures are taken so results can be documented and charted in my record for continuity when I need my next appointment. I loved looking at my before and after photos!The level of professionalism and care taken at this appointment blew me away. I feel as though my treatment was handled by experts who offered me education and understanding throughout my treatment and follow up. I feel my Aesthetic procedure was administered with the same serious care and respect as a medical procedure, that is an important point of difference for me."- J.F. / Google / Oct 26, 2019
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 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 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.
