A custom eyelid surgery can restore a refreshed, youthful look to your eyes — and when performed by Dr. Shah at Shah Plastic Surgery, it will look entirely natural and never “overdone”.

Is it Time to Refresh Your Eyes?

A meticulously performed eyelid surgery will leave you with beautiful, natural-looking results. If you have any of the following aesthetic issues, you may be a good candidate for this customized surgery:

  • Sagging or puffy eyelids
  • Drooping eyelids that inhibit vision
  • A constantly tired appearance
  • Bulges beneath the lower eyelids
  • Sagging lower eyelids that show too much white of the eyes

What is Eyelid Surgery Like to Experience?

Eyelid surgery most commonly treats the upper eyelids. The procedure is usually performed with local anesthesia and intravenous or oral sedation, and takes about two hours to complete. Once the area is numbed, a delicate incision is placed within the natural fold of the eyelid.

A tiny crescent of excess skin is removed and the eyelid is restored with tiny sutures. Some patients may require more work, such as tightening loosened eye muscles or treating puffy eyelids.

Lower eyelid surgery is usually performed through an incision placed within the lash line to avoid visible scarring. Through this incision, excess fat can either be removed or added (if the under-eye area has become hollow due to volume loss).

Recovery Time After Eyelid Surgery

The recovery from eyelid surgery is typically easy. Initially you can expect some bruising and swelling the first day, which diminishes over the next week. A cool compress can be applied to help reduce swelling. Your eyes will be sensitive, so if venturing out, ensure you protect your eyes with sunglasses. In most cases, the stitches are absorbable and won’t require removal. You should plan for about one week to ten days for healing, which is relatively comfortable. Any minor discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter painkillers.

Are there non-surgical alternatives to eyelid surgery?

What are the different types of eyelid surgery?

There are two main types of eyelid surgery: upper eyelid surgery and lower eyelid surgery. Upper eyelid surgery focuses on correcting sagging skin that may impair vision. Lower eyelid surgery addresses bags under the eyes and excess skin.

Are the results of eyelid surgery permanent?

The results of eyelid surgery can last for many years, but they are not entirely immune to the natural aging process. Over time, some changes may occur. However, the procedure can significantly improve the appearance of the eyelids for an extended period.

Can eyelid surgery be combined with other procedures?

Yes, eyelid surgery can be combined with other facial procedures such as brow lift, facelift, or laser resurfacing to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Combining procedures can provide a more harmonious and balanced overall appearance.

Are there non-surgical alternatives to eyelid surgery?

Non-surgical options such as injectable treatments (Botox, dermal fillers) and laser treatments can provide temporary improvements to the appearance of the eyelids. However, these options are limited in terms of the changes they can achieve compared to surgery.
