FACE AND NECK TREATMENTS

Blepharoplasty is the surgical procedure to correct the droopy or puffy look of eyelids due to excess fat pads and skin, which can make you look older or more tired than you feel.

How It's Done: Upper Eyelid Surgery

On the upper lids, an incision is made following the natural line of the crease of the eyelid. Working through these incisions, Dr. Jochen separates the skin from underlying fatty tissue and muscle, removes excess fat and, if necessary, trims sagging skin and muscle. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures.

Both upper eyelid lift surgery and lower eyelid surgery is performed under local anesthesia – which numbs the area around your eyes – along with oral or intravenous sedatives. You’ll be awake during the surgery, but relaxed and insensitive to pain. Upper Blepharoplasty usually takes one to three hours, depending on whether you are having both upper and lower lids corrected. After surgery, your eyelids may feel tight and sore as the anesthesia wears off, but you can control any discomfort with pain medication.

Bruising reaches its peak during the first week, and generally lasts anywhere from two weeks to a month. Stitches will be removed two days to a week after surgery. You should be able to read or watch television after two or three days. However, you won’t be able to wear contact lenses for about two weeks, and even then they may feel uncomfortable for a while.

Most people feel ready to go out in public in a week to 10 days, and you should avoid strenuous activities for about three weeks. Healing is a gradual process, and your scars may remain slightly pink for six months or more after surgery. The positive results of your eyelid surgery – the more alert and youthful look – will last for years. For many people, these results are permanent.

How It's Done: Lower Eyelid Surgery

In a lower blepharoplasty, an incision is made following the natural lines of your lower eyelids, just below the lashes. Working through these incisions, Dr. Jochen separates the skin from underlying fatty tissue and muscle, removes excess fat and, if necessary, trims sagging skin and muscle. The incisions are then closed with very fine sutures.

If you have a pocket of fat beneath your lower eyelids but don’t need to have any skin removed, Dr. Jochen may perform a transconjunctival laser blepharoplasty. In this procedure, the incision is made inside your lower eyelid, leaving no visible scar. It is usually performed on younger patients with thicker, more elastic skin.

Both upper and lower eyelid surgery is performed under local anesthesia – which numbs the area around your eyes – along with oral or intravenous sedatives. You’ll be awake during the surgery, but relaxed and insensitive to pain. Blepharoplasty usually takes one to three hours, depending on whether you are having both upper and lower lids corrected. After surgery, your eyelids may feel tight and sore as the anesthesia wears off, but you can control any discomfort with pain medication.
