Do Your Eyes Look Tired? Eyelid Surgery Could Be the Solution

Restore your youthful appearance with a non-invasive procedure (eye lift surgery) for puffy, and droopy eyelids!

Your eyes are a major attention grabber. They’re also one of the first areas on your face to show signs of aging. Blepharoplasty, or an eyelift, is a non-invasive surgical treatment that significantly reduces signs of aging around the eyes. It also improves eyesight and makes your face look naturally brighter and youthful.

Over time, the muscles supporting your eyes weaken, causing excess fat and skin to gather above and below your eyelids. This creates loose skin, sagging eyebrows, and undereye bags. While this popular cosmetic surgery doesn’t specifically target crow’s feet, it tightens skin and smooths fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes.

Types of Eyelift Procedures

During the pre-operative consultation, your plastic surgeon examines your face and eyes to create a procedural plan that reaches your desired goals.

1. Upper

Upper blepharoplasty involves the reduction of the upper eyelid tissue to improve visual obstruction and create a rejuvenated appearance.

2. Lower

Lower blepharoplasty eliminates excess bagginess and dark circles under your eyes, providing comfort and an enhanced appearance.

3. Combination

It’s common to have both upper and lower blepharoplasty done. You may even choose to combine these with additional cosmetic procedures (e.g facelift, brow lift) to enhance your new look!

Is Blepharoplasty Right for Me?

Eyelifts are a great solution for those who struggle with tired-looking eyes or sagging skin around your eyes and eyebrows. The removal of unnecessary tissue improves eyesight and helps patients look well-rested and rejuvenated. Best of all—the entire process takes less than two hours.

Be sure to consult a trustworthy, board-certified plastic surgeon to choose the best procedure for your physical characteristics and esthetic concerns. Dr. Mazaheri’s precision, advanced techniques, and commitment to excellence make him an ideal choice to help you achieve natural-looking results.

How Painful Is Blepharoplasty?

This surgery is among the least painful facial cosmetic procedures. Aside from some discomfort on the day of your procedure, you shouldn’t experience anything more than soreness afterward.

Your surgeon will likely prescribe medication to alleviate any pain. Swelling and tenderness are typically managed with over-the-counter pain relievers and a cold compress.

What to Expect During Recovery

Following your procedure, you will likely experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Numbness
  • Light sensitivity
  • Watery eyes
  • Swelling and bruising
  • Blurred vision (from prescribed eye drops or ointment)

Since this procedure doesn’t require stitches or leave a scar, you may feel comfortable returning to normal activities in as little as three days! Bruising and swelling usually subside within two weeks. Keep in mind, healing and recovery time vary with each person.

To streamline recovery, Dr. Mazaheri recommends that you avoid the following for at least two weeks:

  • Strenuous activities and heavy lifting
  • Reading small print or straining your eyes
  • Excessive computer and screen time
  • Wearing contact lenses, eye makeup, and face cream
  • Rubbing or putting pressure on your eyes

Let’s Talk About Results

One of the most alluring benefits of an eyelift is that it can be performed at any age and results are long-lasting. Unless correcting a botched eyelid surgery: removal of hooding and lower eye skin is a procedure that is only needed once.

Your eyes will continue to age, but the removal of excess tissue, skin, and fat prevents sagging and reduces the appearance of aging!

When Blepharoplasty Goes Wrong

Dealing with a botched eyelift? Don’t waste any more time with unqualified personnel who could make a bad situation worse. Dr. Mazaheri has over 20 years of experience performing successful and correcting botched surgeries. He’s a talented professional who genuinely cares about every client.
