Are you starting to see signs of aging when you look at yourself in the mirror? They say the eyes are the windows to the soul and ideally your eyes should continue to reflect your youthful spirit. Aging eyes can make you look older than you actually are, or more tired than you typically feel. Eyelid surgery in Toronto, also known as Blepharoplasty, is now one of the most sought after cosmetic surgical procedures, as it can dramatically make one appear younger.
Upper Blepharoplasty treats the excess skin on the upper eyelids that can cause “hooding”, “drooping” or sagging and can prevent you from looking bright-eyed and youthful; as well as possibly impairing your vision. Upper Blepharoplasty in Toronto is a relatively straightforward procedure that has the ability to reverse the signs of aging that have now taken up residence on your face. Upper Blepharoplasty is a relatively fast and easy way to take 5 to 10 years off your face. Performed under local anesthetic, Upper Blepharoplasty can take less than one hour with one week of recovery at home. Sutures are typically removed 7-10 days following surgery and you can get back to your daily routine shortly thereafter.
Lower Blepharoplasty surgery in Toronto treats those dreadful eye bags that sit beneath your Lower Eyelids than can make you look tired, haggard and much older than your actual age. Aging of the eyes can start in your 30’s due to genetics and can continue to progress simply from the challenges and stress that come from day to day living.
Lower Blepharoplasty is a more complex surgical procedure with different treatment options depending on your surgeon. At Solomon Facial Plastic, Dr. Philip Solomon, uses the Transconjunctival approach, with the incision being made inside the lower lid, thus leaving no external scars. Excess fat pads are then removed and/or repositioned so the lower eyelid blends with the upper cheek. This technique can eliminate eye bags and the hollowed look that commonly appears with age. Lower Blepharoplasty is typically performed under general anesthetic for the comfort of the patient, and in less than two hours. In some cases, Lower Blepharoplasty can be combined with CO2 Laser Resurfacing to tighten the skin surrounding the lower eyelid while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. We typically recommend 7-14 days recovery.
For those not quite ready for Blepharoplasty surgery in Toronto, Dr. Philip Solomon offers a Non-Surgical Blepharoplasty, using dermal fillers alone or in combination with CO2 Laser Resurfacing.
