With such attention given to the eyes, it's no wonder why so many men and women with droopy upper eyelids and puffy bags consider eyelid surgery. Vancouver, BC plastic surgeon Dr. Peter Lennox has many years of experience transforming the most expressive part of the face from appearing old and tired to young and energized.

Understanding Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, opens and brightens the eyes by removing loose skin and fatty tissues that create droopiness and bags. This can be particularly troubling for women because it obscures the natural contours of the eyelid and makes it difficult to apply cosmetics. For men and women, bulging tissues make the eyes look small, tired or even angry.

In Vancouver, blepharoplasty involves placing incisions in the fold of the upper lid and just below the eyelashes of the lower lid. Excess fat and skin are removed, the skin is tightened, and the incisions are delicately closed with tiny sutures. When healed, the scars are nearly impossible to see. An alternative method to treating the lower eyelid involves an incision on the inside of the lower lid. This allows Dr. Lennox to reduce lower eyelid bags with no visible scarring.

Recovery & Results

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure, and most of Dr. Lennox's patients tell us that they experience minimal discomfort. It is common to have some bruising and swelling for the first 2 days but these issues usually subside rapidly on the third day. Most men and women return to work and start going out socially a week after surgery and resume their workouts 3 weeks after surgery.

Complementary Procedures

Eyelid surgery cannot remove every wrinkle from the eyelid area so many patients combine their procedure with injectable fillers to plump and smooth the skin's appearance. For even more dramatic results, some patients also have a facelift to remove sagging skin of the cheeks, jaw line and neck.
