I can't stand this part of me

Allison, 65 years old, pensioner, Boston

I can’t stand seeing my face like this. I always look sad and tired despite feeling. The appearance of my eyes is not in line with how I feel. I chose the eyelid lift to rejuvenate my eyes and my face.

EYELID SURGERY

Over time, eyelids naturally age, which cause the eyes to appear tired or old. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids responsible for this tired appearance, its is often performed in combination with a facelift.

WHO IS IT FOR

Eyelids are often the first are to show signs of ageing which can be detrimental to the appearance of the eyes and the overall appearance of the face. Upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both can be treated.

THE PROCEDURE

Surgical technique

1- Incisions

Upper eyelids : incisions are hidden in the fold located halfway up the eyelid, between the mobile part and the stationary part of the eyelid.

Lower eyelids : incisions are made 1 to 2 mm under the eyelashes.

Incision placement of course dictates the location of the resulting scars, which will be hidden in the natural fold of the eyelid. Those incisions allow the removal of excess fat and skin burdening the eyelids.

2- Sutures

Sutures are made with very fine threads that are usually removed on day 5 of the recovery.

Recovery

Following the eyelid surgery, there isn’t any pain, but a little discomfort can be experienced with some tightness and a slight irritation of the eyes. Rest is necessary during the first days of the recovery with no strenuous effort. Bruising and swelling will naturally appear, but they are temporary. Sutures threads are removed on day 5 or 6, scars might keep their pink color during the first weeks of the recovery, but makeup is allowed a week after the surgery.
