Eyelid Surgery: Cosmetic & Non-Cosmetic Benefits

What is an Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that tightens or removes loose skin around the eyes, resulting in a smoother, more refreshed and younger appearance.

When carried out by an experienced, board-certified cosmetic surgeon, eyelid surgery is a safe and effective procedure which can:

  • Eliminate unwanted wrinkles
  • Remove puffy eye bags
  • Lighten heavy lids

It is important to note that an eyelift will not eliminate dark circles under the eyes, crow’s feet or other facial wrinkles.  These facial concerns are more effectively corrected with other non-cosmetic surgery procedures including botox, filler injections or IPL photorejuvenation.  

To eliminate overall downtime eyelid surgery can be performed concurrently with other cosmetic surgical procedures such as a browlift or a facelift.

What are the Cosmetic Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

Sagging skin is a natural consequence of age and heredity that occurs as skin around the eyes begins to lose its elasticity.

Eyelid surgery reduces bagginess from lower eyelids and removes excess skin from the upper eyelids. This gives patients a younger and more alert expression, thus reducing the tired look cased by drooping eyelids.

Some of the cosmetic benefits of this surgery include:

  • Naturally rejuvenated look
  • Reducing unwanted wrinkles around the eyes
  • More alert appearance
  • Correction of eye puffiness
  • Eyebag removal

What are the Non-Cosmetic Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

Although eyelid surgery is primarily known as a facial rejuvenation procedure, patients may also benefit from improved vision.

During the procedure, deposits of excess fat and tissue around the eyelids are removed, correcting drooping eyelids and resulting in a less obstructed field of view.

Are You a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Potential candidates for eyelid surgery include those that have:

  • Excess skin obscuring the natural fold of the upper eyelids
  • Puffy upper eyelids
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the upper and lower eyelids

However, all candidates MUST BE:

  • At least 18 years old
  • In good physical and mental health
  • Realistic in their expectations concerning the outcome of the procedure

Kelowna board-certified cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Brian Peterson can help determine whether you are a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

Latest Testimonial

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
