What is eyelid surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, and can rejuvenate the appearance of the area around your eyes by: treating the loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelids, removing excess fatty deposits that can give the upper eyelids a puffy appearance, mitigating bags under the eyes, remedying droopiness of the lower eyelids, and addressing excess skin and fine wrinkles on the lower eyelid.

In addition to asking these questions, your Plastic Surgeon will use your consultation to evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors you may have, discuss your eyelid surgery options, examine and measure your face, take photographs for your medical record, recommend a course of treatment, discuss likely outcomes of eyelid surgery and any risks or potential complications, and answer your questions.
What should I expect before my eyelid surgery?
Before your eyelid surgery, you may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust your current medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that may increase bleeding.
We will also give you special instructions about what to do the night before and morning of your surgery and regarding your post-operative care and follow-up appointments.
