What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, often referred to as eyelid surgery, is the most commonly performed dermal rejuvenation surgery. The procedure targets unwanted fat, skin, and tissue around your eyes.

Dr. Solomon, a renowned Otolaryngologist, Head and Neck Surgeon, is highly experienced in facial cosmetic plastic surgery. He perfects the appearance of the eye by removing excess skin and fat from either the upper eyelids, lower lids, or both with careful incisions that won’t leave visible scarring.

What imperfections does blepharoplasty address?

Getting blepharoplasty in Toronto is not exclusive to people over 40. We are here to address your concerns and help you achieve the look you desire. Regardless of age, blepharoplasty is used to correct the following imperfections:

  • Baggy, droopy eyelids
  • Excess skin blocking your peripheral vision
  • Excess lower eyelid skin
  • Pronounced bags under your eyes

Our blepharoplasty surgeon often recommends other procedures to enhance the effects of blepharoplasty, including brow lifts, C02 laser resurfacing, botox/fat grafting, or dermal fillers.

You can book a consultation with our blepharoplasty surgeon to discuss your concerns and develop a plan to target and eliminate problem areas.

What are the benefits of getting blepharoplasty?

Our patients find blepharoplasty surgery offers many benefits, including:

  • Correcting almost any aesthetic flaw associated with the area surrounding the eyes

  • Removing eye bags by relocating fat pads beneath the eyes

  • Lifting drooping eyelids above the eyes

  • Tightening and lifting skin surrounding the eyes

  • Creating a healthier, more youthful, refreshed appearance

  • Improved confidence and self-esteem

We are here to support you and find the best solutions to overcome common aesthetic eye issues.

What to Expect When Considering Blepharoplasty

Before Dr. Solomon recommends eyelid surgery, he first schedules a consultation at one of our clinics in the Greater Toronto Area. This allows him to discuss your personal goals and review your health history. Your consultation is a very important step, as all surgical procedures present risks. 

He will consider all medical conditions that might increase risks and discuss why this surgery might not be right for you. If your health history does not present risks, he will recommend a plan to help you achieve your goals. 

A physical, and in some cases, ophthalmologist or complete eye health exam may be required to confirm you are a suitable candidate for eyelid surgery.

What to Expect During Your Blepharoplasty Procedure

Your eyelid surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia. Preparations are made based on the type of anesthesia required to keep you comfortable during the blepharoplasty procedure. Incisions are made along the natural lines of the upper and lower eyelid to ensure they are not detectable once your healing is complete. 

For lower eyelid surgery, an incision is often made on the inner aspect of the lower eyelid to reduce visible scarring. 

The incisions are then used to access and remove the excess skin and fat. The procedure takes approximately an hour, with a 2-hour recovery time required if you underwent general anesthesia. 

Dr. Solomon often recommends laser surgery for eyelid procedures using the UltraPulse® Fractionated CO2 Laser. Laser treatments enhance the outcome of the blepharoplasty surgery by tightening the skin, and reducing the appearance of fine lines.  What to Expect Post-Eyelid Surgery

Following your eyelid surgery at either one of our Toronto or Thornhill clinics, you will need someone to pick you up to ensure your safety. Depending on the patient and the extent of the surgery, Dr. Solomon may use traditional or dissolvable stitches/sutures. 

If traditional stitches are used during blepharoplasty, they are removed by Dr. Solomon or one of his registered nurses approximately one week after your surgery. 

You can expect mild swelling and bruising for 7 to 10 days. These symptoms can be reduced with cold compresses applied to the affected area. Sleeping with your head elevated for the first few days following surgery also helps. 

After the first week, you can use makeup to help reduce the appearance of bruising. The incision sites themselves can take several months to fade, becoming less and less visible each day. 

Your response to the procedure varies based on your age, susceptibility to bruising, and overall health.

Managing Possible Side Effects Post-Procedure

Some patients experience temporary sensitivity to light, dry eyes, or excess tearing.

Eye drops are available to relieve any itching or burning you might experience. You can also wear sunglasses for 7 to 10 days to reduce sun, wind, and light sensitivity.

Is Blepharoplasty safe?

Although blepharoplasty is considered a safe, routine procedure, all surgical procedures come with risks. As mentioned, Dr. Solomon performs a thorough consultation at one of our clinics in the GTA, assessment, and medical history review to ensure you are eligible for surgery.

Sharing all known medical conditions and medications with Dr. Solomon is crucial, as even a supplement taken prior to surgery can impact the healing process.
