Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Lines, creases, and wrinkles slowly form on our faces as we age. These signs of age can be subtle or dramatic, depending on the person. Often the most dramatic signs of age form around the eyes and eyelids, making even people who are only middle aged or younger look shockingly old. With eyelid surgery in Toronto, you can scale back these signs of age and restore the smooth skin around your eyes that you had in youth.

Blepharoplasty, more colloquially known as eyelid surgery, is the name for surgery performed on the upper or lower eyelids that smooths skin, redistributes fat deposits, and tightens muscles. This surgery results in the patient enjoying a more youthful appearance and can even help improve eyesight when hooded eyelids are interfering with a patient’s vision.

Surgical Options

At the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre, we perform two different types of eyelid surgery,
each of which offers slightly different benefits.

Upper Blepharoplasty

This surgery focuses on the upper eyelid line. We remove excess skin to smooth the line and create a more uniform upper eyelid. Furthermore, if you have droopy eyelids, we can tighten the muscles to improve vision and prevent droopiness in the future.

Lower Blepharoplasty

This surgery primarily focuses on fat deposits that rest under the eye and create an appearance of swelling or bloating. These fat deposits are redistributed and stretched skin is smoothed out, creating a livelier and younger appearance.

Recovery

Every surgery has a recovery time, though recovery for blepharoplasty is actually quite swift. Patients need to spend a few days keeping their head elevated, applying cold compresses, not wearing contact lenses, and getting plenty of rest. After that, swelling and bruising disappears in a matter of weeks, sometimes as short as a single week. Throughout the recovery process, staff at the Canadian Plastic Surgery Centre are available to provide assistance.
