Sagging and drooping skin around the eyelids can leave a person looking tired, sad and old. In extreme cases, the excess skin of the upper eyelids can hang enough to impair vision. Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a procedure offered in the Toronto area that can tighten the skin and/or alter fatty deposits.
The blepharoplasty procedure takes about two hours to complete and can be broken down as follows: anesthesia, the incision, tissue alteration, and suturing.
Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Andres Gantous can help determine the best surgical techniques to optimize results to the patient’s unique specifications.
Droopiness of the upper eyelid generally requires an incision along the natural crease so fat deposits can be removed and skin can be tightened. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty may involve an incision made on the inside of the lid to alter fatty deposits.
