Procedure Overview

Eyelid surgery is one of the most popular facial rejuvenation treatments. Many people choose this procedure to create a more natural crease line, reduce puffiness in the upper or lower lids, and even improve impaired vision caused by ptosis (extremely heavy, drooping eyelids). Fat deposits in the eyelids can also be reduced to create a better eye contour, or repositioned for added volume in sunken areas. A brow lift is often performed during eyelid surgery to reduce wrinkles in the forehead and provide added lifting effects.

Your Surgery

This procedure can be performed using general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. Incision patterns will vary depending on individual concerns but may be placed in the upper eyelid, below the lower lash line, or inside the lower eyelid. Skin, tissue and fat may be removed or redistributed accordingly.

Recovery from eyelid surgery usually depends on the degree of correction needed. For most people, a minimal amount of swelling or bruising may be experienced during the few days after surgery and should resolve within 1 to 2 weeks. During this time, makeup or sunglasses may be worn to hide any residual side effects.

Your Results

A more refreshed, alert appearance and more youthful looking eyes are typical after eyelid surgery. Under eye bags are reduced, if desired. Individuals whose peripheral vision was obscured by lax eyelid skin may experience an improvement in sight. Results can be enhanced or maintained with nonsurgical treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic in St. Louis.
