What Is Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty is meant to rejuvenate the upper and lower eyelids. As we age, fat begins to settle beneath our skin and protrude from behind and around the eyelids. When we are younger, these pads are held in place by membranes, making them less noticeable. However, the pads start to push outward and become more apparent as we get older. Our skin may also begin to sag over the top of our eyes, impairing our vision. Eyelid surgery looks to address these issues to give you a more youthful appearance.

What Is a Brow Lift?

A brow lift, also commonly known as a forehead lift, aims to reduce the signs of aging that affect the area above the eyebrows, including where expression lines and sagging skin tend to occur. A drooping brow can also affect the upper eyelid skin causing them to droop or sag. Patients who suspect they need an “eyelid lift” may also want to consider a brow lift procedure as well.

What Are the Benefits of Eyelid Surgery and/or Brow Lift?

As previously mentioned, eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both lids simultaneously. Most of the procedures are done as an outpatient procedure, often using local anesthesia with sedation. Eyelid surgery can be performed for both cosmetic and functional reasons.

Check out just a few of the benefits eyelid surgery has to offer:

While this isn’t the primary goal of eyelid surgery for most patients, many see a significant improvement in those early, telltale signs of aging. Lifting both the upper and lower eyelid can reduce the number of visible lines around the outer corners and lower lid of your eyes.

Bags below the eyes can give a fatigued appearance, even if you’re well-rested. A lower eyelid lift can remove under-eye bags by eliminating excess skin and tissue below the eye.

When you have significant droopiness of the upper lid, it can significantly impair your line of vision. By removing those deposits and subtly lifting the brow and upper lid, we can also improve your line of sight.

Blepharoplasty is one of the most effective ways to give your entire face a refreshed appearance. The procedure can also enhance the shape and appearance of your eyes. Whether you undergo eyelid surgery alone or combine it with a brow lift, you are likely to experience dramatic results that rejuvenate your appearance and improve your self-confidence.

What To Expect from An Eyelid Surgery with Dr. Paydar

Dr. Paydar conducts all of his surgeries at his AAAASF accredited state of the art facility, Newport Aesthetic Surgery Center, under general anesthesia with a board-certified anesthesiologist present for the duration of the surgery. Blepharoplasty is generally broken down into two sub-procedures: the upper eyelids and the lower eyelids. 

When addressing the upper eyelids, Dr. Paydar will first make an incision above the eyelid. He will then visually locate the excess skin and confirm that by measuring the skin with a medical instrument. When he decides how much skin he needs to remove, he’ll carefully excise the excess skin and fat from the same incision. When Dr. Paydar is satisfied with the appearance of the eyelids, the incisions will be sutured and dressed for optimal results.

For the lower eyelids, Dr. Paydar will make an incision below the eyelashes that can be camouflaged almost immediately after surgery to remove any excess skin. The incision will be sutured and dressed for recovery. The fat that produces the under-eye bags can be addressed by performing an incision in the conjunctiva, or the inside lining of the lower eyelid, followed by the release and repositioning of the fat on the cheek to soften the border between the lower lid and the cheek fat. There is a good chance that the laxity in the muscle of the lower lid may require tightening with a stitch which will be done prior to the final simple stitch in the lining of the lower lid. The lower lid skin will then be supported with tape. 

What To Expect from A Brow Lift Procedure with Dr. Paydar

Your brow lift will involve small incisions above the hairline that can be hidden well in the natural curve of your skin and hair. Dr. Paydar will then lift, smooth, and affix the skin into this new raised position, effectively resolving the droopiness of the brows and eyelids and opening up the eyes.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery/Brow Lift Surgery?

Dr. Paydar is open to speaking with any potential patients interested in learning more about an eyelid surgery or brow lift surgery. That being said, he will first need to determine that this procedure is safe to perform on you by conducting a comprehensive medical examination.

In general, eyelid surgery patients or brow lift patients should

  • be in good physical health
  • be willing to quit smoking 4 weeks prior and after surgery and avoid drinking alcohol excessively
  • maintain realistic expectations of the procedure
  • have a positive mindset and realistic goals
  • understand the risks that come along with the procedure

To find out if you’re a good candidate for eyelid surgery or a brow lift, schedule a consultation with Dr. Paydar.

What To Expect from Eyelid Surgery/ Brow Lift Surgery Recovery

The recovery from eyelid surgery or brow lift is one of the easiest. You’ll feel back to normal around the second day of your recovery. The healing process generally takes about a week for the upper eyelids and about 10-14 days for the lower eyelids.

Your brow lift recovery process is approximately 10 to 14 days, similar to lower eyelid recovery.

It’s important to limit excess physical activity until you are fully healed and cleared by your doctor. You want to protect your incisions from sweat or accidental trauma by attending the gym too early. You must also refrain from putting any makeup or cosmetics on over your incisions until they are fully healed to stave off any infection.
