Is eyelid surgery right for you?

Both men and women regularly undergo eyelid surgery. Dr. Sosa will meet with you to discuss your options. The best candidates for eyelid surgery have a great deal of loose skin that hangs around the eyes. In some cases, the skin even folds into the eyes. You might also have pockets of bulging skin under your eyelids. In extreme situations, the rolls of skin around your eyes can even hinder your eyesight and lead to vision impairment that can impact every aspect of your daily life.

Eyelid surgery can give you a younger appearance by removing excess skin on your upper eyelids and puffiness under your eyes.

All about eyelid surgery

Dr. Sosa at Bloomfield Plastic Surgery in West Bloomfield, MI will meet with you to discuss the complexity of your eyelid surgery. In some situations, patients need to undergo general anesthesia. He will determine if the eyelid lift will be performed only on the upper portion of the lid or on both the upper and lower eyelids.

An upper eyelid lift removes the hanging skin that droops down over the eye. An incision is made along the lash line, and then the excess skin is removed.

Lower eyelid surgery is made via a small incision placed near the lower lash line. Any fatty deposits that cause you to have a puffy under-eye appearance are removed. Nonsurgical laser treatment is often used to remove any discoloration under the eyes. Dermal fillers can also be injected into the area to cate a smoother appearance.

Eyelid surgery often takes up to two hours, depending on if Dr. Sosa decides to operate on one or both eyes. Following the surgery, you’ll need to rest for a few days and avoid any activities that are overly strenuous.
