About this Treatment

Eyelid Rejuvenation

Surgical rejuvenation of the eyelids, or ‘blepharoplasty’, are procedures that address aging changes of the upper, lower, and adjacent areas around the eyelids.

Blepharoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures requested in plastic surgery and has an excellent safety record when performed by an appropriately trained and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. If you’re interested in eyelid rejuvenation in Toledo, Ohio our team of experts can help.

What It Is

We may perform surgery on the upper or lower eyelids or both. Sometimes, blepharoplasty is combined with other facial aesthetic procedures such as cheek lift, facelift, brow lift, and skin peels or resurfacing to address general aging concerns more comprehensively. Eyelid rejuvenation in Toledo, Ohio with Dr. Frank Barone can restore a more youthful appearance and rejuvenate the area surrounding the eyes as well as improve functional problems in some cases where fatigue or upper visual field loss has occurred because of visual obstruction from drooping skin or sagging upper eyelids.

What It Treats

  • Loose or sagging skin and fat excess that creates excess folds or disturbs the natural youthful contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
  • Fatty deposits that cause puffiness and swelling of the lids
  • Fatty bags and circles of the lower eyelids
  • Drooping, sagging, and loss of support of the lower eyelids sometimes resulting in excess tearing
  • Excess skin and wrinkles of the lower eyelid and upper cheek area

Treatment Time

  • 1.5 - 3 hours

Recovery Time

  • 2 - 4 weeks

Anesthetic Type

  • General, IV, or Local

Benefits

  • Youthful Appearance  Restores a more youthful eyelid appearance without changing the natural shape of the eyes, when performed properly.
  • Reduced Fatigue  Elimination of sagging may reduce fatigue with reading by improving support and reducing excess weight from overhanging skin and fat excess cheeks, jowls, and neck laxity.
  • Fewer Wrinkles  Reduce excess wrinkles and fine lines in and around the eyelids.
  • Improved Vision May improve vision in those patients who have developed drooping of the upper eyelid which can obstruct vision (referred to as ptosis or blepharoptosis) by correcting lid position.

How Eyelid Rejuvenation Works

Step 01.

We will perform a medical history and examination along with a thorough discussion of each patients’ goals and expectations to create a proper treatment plan, discuss costs, and recovery time. In some cases, a pre-operative evaluation from an ophthalmologist or optometrist may be recommended.

Step 02.

Anesthesia may be local injection, intravenous sedation, or general anesthesia depending on patient preferences and extent of procedure.

Step 03.

After proper anesthesia is obtained, incisions are designed so that they will be concealed within the natural folds of the eyelids. In select cases, we may make a lower eyelid incision inside the actual lid (transconjunctival blepharoplasty) resulting in no visible incisional scar. The surface of the eye and the cornea are always covered and protected during the surgery.

Step 04.

Excess skin and fat or fatty bags may be removed, repositioned, or modified to restore the natural features and contour of a younger eyelid. If a cheek lift is planned, we will perform it simultaneously through the lower eyelid incision.

Step 05.

Incisions are closed, and we apply lubricant along with cold compresses to reduce swelling. If planned, we may also perform a skin peel at the end of the procedure.

Step 06.

After a brief stay in the recovery area, you will be discharged, and your transportation home arranged, along with all your follow up appointments in the office. Post-operative therapeutic services such as lymphatic massage, LED light therapy, medical makeup, and camouflage will also be scheduled to reduce swelling and improve your recovery time and results.

I had upper and lower eyelid (blepharoplasty) and lower extended MACS facelift and peel by Dr. Barone. I couldn’t be more pleased with my results, and my entire experience with Dr. Barone and his staff. He spends a significant amount of time, explains thoroughly and his staff is amazing. They give me personal attention, promptly return calls if I have a complex question, and they actually answer the phone – no robo answering service. I was worried that I would look “done” or not look like “me” anymore. He is a true artist and I look like a truly younger version of myself, and I look & feel great! I live in South Florida part of the year and have access to some of the best surgeons in the country. After extensive research I chose Dr. Barone, and I’m so glad I did! Someone asked me recently, if I could go back to the beginning, would I do it again? I said there is no doubt – YES! I would highly recommend Dr. Barone to anyone considering cosmetic surgery.
