If you develop ongoing droopy or puffy eyelids, you don’t have to live with these unwelcome signs of aging.

Call the Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa office or schedule a consultation online today.
An eyelid lift, also called blepharoplasty, is a minor surgery in which your surgeon tightens and lifts eyelid tissues to improve your line of vision and make you look younger. The Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa team has many years of experience completing this procedure, and there’s minimal downtime afterward.
The benefits you can take advantage of after an eyelid lift at Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa include:
An eyelid lift can dramatically improve the appearance of your eyelids, making them look years younger and healthier.
Ideal candidates for eyelid lifts are men and women who desire younger-looking lids and an improved line of vision because of loose or sagging lids. If you prefer a less invasive alternative, Aesthetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa also offers nonsurgical eyelid tightening using CO2 laser technology.
Your cosmetic specialist reviews your medical history, discusses your desired results, and examines your eyelids before customizing a treatment best suited for you. Your insurance coverage may pay for a portion of your surgery if your eyelids diminish your line of vision.
You might receive IV sedation or general anesthesia before undergoing an eyelid lift. Your provider can complete upper eyelid lifts, lower eyelid surgery, or upper and lower eyelid lifts. They make tiny incisions, remove excess tissues, tighten the remaining tissues, and close the incisions.
Eyelid surgery might last up to two hours, and you can go home the same day. However, have someone drive you home.
Your recovery process depends on the type of surgery you undergo. Take a few days to rest afterward, ice the treatment area to reduce swelling and bruising, and avoid strenuous activities until given the OK. Don’t rub your eyes until your lids heal, and always protect them from the sun.
