Eyelid Surgery Montreal

Eyelid Surgery Montreal - Title


The eyes are the focal point of the face and contribute substantially to your overall facial appearance. Bags beneath the eyes, wrinkled drooping layers of skin on the eyelids, and sagging eyebrows give the entire face a perpetually tired or sad expression.

Aesthetic eyelid surgery can brighten the face and remove a tired appearance by reducing the fat and extra skin that cause these conditions. Blepharoplasty is often performed along with a facelift or with other facial rejuvenating procedures.

Dr. Swift may operate on the upper and lower eyelids as necessary, removing excess skin as well as collections of fat under the skin that create puffiness and bagginess of the eyelids. More recently, external incisions of the lower lids are avoided in most cases, and laser resurfacing tightens the skin. Sometimes a sagging of the eyebrows aggravates the problem; this may require correction with a brow lift.

Because eyelid skin is thin, you should expect some swelling and black-and-blue discoloration after surgery. Your eyes may be temporarily sensitive to light and susceptible to excess tearing or dryness. You may want to wear dark glasses for a couple of weeks to protect your eyes from wind and sun irritation and avoid eyestrain from prolonged reading or television viewing. You will be able to resume wearing makeup and contact lenses shortly after your surgery.

Within six weeks, the thin surgical scars should be barely visible and blend into your eyes' natural lines and folds.
