Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, is performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the upper eyelids by adjusting the muscles and underlying tissue of the eyelids while lifting and tightening the eye skin. This gives the eyelids and eyes a refreshed and younger appearance. At Jacobson Plastic Surgery, we offer blepharoplasty in Rochester performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven R. Jacobson.
If your eyes are the windows to your soul, why would you want to portray a look with laxity, sagging, drooping eyelids? Looking tired, your eyes no longer reflect how you feel, misrepresenting you and how you are truly feeling.
Upper eyelid aging is a common problem of facial aging. It’s certainly the main contributor to the look of tiredness that comes with aging.
Eyes that once added youth and brightness to the face now appear flat and dull, having lost their expression under a layer of droopy skin. When left unattended, in the extreme scenario, it can even affect your peripheral vision and ability to see a normal field of vision.
Upper eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) rejuvenates and freshens the eyes.
With only a small incision, carefully concealed in the eyelid crease, corrective eyelid surgery becomes nearly undetectable within months. Surgery to the upper lids restores an attractive contour and the eyes look bright and youthful but meticulous care in this delicate area is taken by Dr. Jacobson, so the result looks natural.
When performed by a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Jacobs, blepharoplasty is able to provide results that took incredibly natural and beautiful.
Recovering from Blepharoplasty
There will be some bruising and swelling around the eyes. A majority of the swelling and bruising should subside after two to three weeks. Makeup can be used to cover up any that remains. The recovery process should not be very painful and medication can help to manage any pain or discomfort your may experience.
It will take around four to six weeks of recovery before you can see the results of your blepharoplasty. Follow-up visits will be scheduled in between this time to see how the eyelids are healing.
