What is Eyelid Rejuvenation?

Aging changes of the upper and lower eyelids often have a major influence on a patient’s appearance as the eyes are one of the most revealing facial features. A properly done blepharoplasty will result in a more rested and alert appearance and significantly affect the youthfulness of the face.

At evolv Plastic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics, eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty may be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial procedures, including a brow lift or facelift, depending on your individual goals and pre-operative consultation.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery can improve or treat:

  • excess sagging skin and looseness that disrupts the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision.
  • excess fatty deposits that cause puffiness in the upper eyelids.
  • loose skin and bags of the lower eyelids.
  • fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid and the tissue around the lower eyelids.
  • droopiness of the lower eyelids, sometimes revealing the white below the iris (colored portion of the eye).


What to Expect with Eyelid Rejuvenation

Before your procedure, you will have a consultation with either Dr. Frank Barone for an assessment of your characteristics.

In most cases, our surgeons’ surgical approach for eyelid surgery is directed toward repositioning the normal fatty tissues of the lids to its previous youthful position, rather than simply removing the tissue. This approach will result in a more natural appearance of the lids.

Procedure Steps

In our state-of-the-art accredited surgical facility, general anesthesia will be administered for your comfort. Next, meticulous incisions will be made through the natural crease of your eyelid, so there is minimal visible scarring after surgery.

Excess skin and fat can be removed and natural tissue is tightened. Then the incisions will be sutured and bandages will be placed to aid healing.

Eyelid Rejuvenation Candidates

Candidates for eyelid rejuvenation surgery are those who experience drooping or sagging eyelids due to aging or other factors. Patients might also suffer from vision problems if severe drooping is obstructing their vision. An eyelid rejuvenation procedure is a great option for those who appear tired due to drooping eyelids or eye puffiness. Candidates should be non-smokers and be in good health to avoid complications and ensure a successful procedure and recovery. Those with any serious eye conditions might not be good candidates for this procedure. An examination with an experienced plastic surgeon is the only way to be sure you are a candidate for eyelid rejuvenation, or if a combination of procedures would be more beneficial.


Eyelid Rejuvenation Recovery & Results

After eyelid rejuvenation, patients will be given specific aftercare instructions to ensure a successful recovery. This might include taking medications to aid in pain and avoid infection, using eye drops, and wearing eye bandages. Patients should avoid strenuous activity and things that can put a strain on the eyes such as reading and watching TV.

As the eyelids begin to heal, patients can enjoy a more awake and youthful appearance. Drooping is significantly reduced, often giving patients better peripheral vision. The results of eyelid rejuvenation are long lasting while still natural.


Eyelid Rejuvenation Cost

The cost of eyelid rejuvenation will depend on the technique used during the procedure and whether both the upper and lower eyelids were corrected. The cost will also differ if patients choose to have another procedure in conjunction with their eyelid rejuvenation surgery. After an initial consultation and evaluation, patients will be given a quote of the expected cost for their procedure, so they will know what to expect.
