Eyelid Rejuvenation

Conveniently located to serve Boston, Beverly, and New York City.

Eyelid rejuvenation, commonly known as blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to enhance the appearance and function of the eyelids. This surgical intervention is designed to address various concerns, including sagging skin, excess fat deposits, and drooping eyelids, which can contribute to an aged or tired look.

While primarily pursued for aesthetic reasons, cosmetic eyelid surgery can also offer functional benefits, such as improved vision in cases where sagging skin obstructs the field of view. If you want eyelid rejuvenation in Boston, learn more about it and get it here at Glavas Center.

Understanding the Procedure

Eyelid rejuvenation typically involves upper and lower eyelid surgery, also known as upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty, respectively.

  • Upper eyelid surgery – This procedure focuses on removing excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids, resulting in a more lifted and refreshed appearance. The surgeon, Dr. Glavas, carefully conceals incisions within the natural creases of the eyelids to minimize visible scarring.
  • Lower eyelid surgery – For the lower eyelids, the surgeon may address issues like puffiness, wrinkles, and sagging. Techniques may include the removal or repositioning of fat deposits, as well as tightening loose skin. Incisions are often made just below the lower lash line or within the lower lid to achieve a subtle outcome.

Benefits of Eyelid Rejuvenation

Eyelid rejuvenation offers a range of functional and aesthetic benefits. Aesthetic advantages include a more alert and youthful appearance, reduction of wrinkles, and elimination of bags or puffiness. The procedure can also contribute to improved vision in cases where excess skin impedes sight.

Candidates for Eyelid Rejuvenation

Determining the suitable candidates for blepharoplasty involves assessing various factors. Generally, these patients are in good overall health, non-smokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcomes of the procedure. Skin elasticity is an essential consideration, as individuals with moderate skin laxity tend to achieve better results.

Potential cosmetic surgery candidates for blepharoplasty should express specific concerns about their eyelids, such as excess skin, fat deposits, or impaired vision, during a consultation to ensure their goals align with the possibilities of eyelid surgery.

Individuals with severe medical conditions, unrealistic expectations, or certain eye disorders may not be ideal candidates for eyelid rejuvenation. Smokers and those with significant skin laxity may also face challenges in achieving optimal results.

Recovery and Aftercare

Recovery from eyelid surgery varies from person to person but typically involves a downtime of around one to two weeks. Immediately after the procedure, patients may experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising but these are a normal part of the healing process.

Following Dr. Glavas’ aftercare instructions is crucial for optimal healing. These instructions may include the application of cold compresses, avoiding strenuous activities, and taking prescribed medications. Patients can usually return to normal activities within a couple of weeks, but final results may take a few months to fully manifest as residual swelling subsides.
