Eyelid Surgery in Toronto, Markham, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Ontario

Am I the right candidate for eyelid surgery?

There is no doubt that the appearance of bags or puffiness under your eyes, any excess skin on the lower lids, or wrinkled and drooping upper lids can make you look old and fatigued.  For patients in Toronto and Orillia, sagging eyelids could also be caused by genetics or aging. Eyelid problems can lead to impaired vision as well. Patients in the Mississauga and Vaughan, Ontario area  may look to eyelid surgery in Toronto for help.

What is eyelid surgery in Toronto?

Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, is used to remove any excess fat and skin or loosened muscles from the lower or upper eyelids. This gives Toronto patients a younger look with a firm eye area. You can opt for separate procedures for both the eyelids or they can be done together.

Upper eyelid procedure

To ensure all incisions are concealed, Dr. Plant places them along the natural crease and lines of the upper eyelids. Loose muscles, excess skin and fat are removed for a smooth and uplifted eyelid. In the Clearview area, use of fine sutures further ensures scars remain invisible.

Lower eyelid procedure

The incisions are made along the ‘smile crease’ or the lash line of the lower lid or even inside the eyelid. Once any excess skin, fat and muscle is removed, the under eye bags disappear. For some Toronto patients, fat deposits may be positioned a little higher in the socket to give a fuller look to the eyelids.

Is this procedure really for me?

Dr. Plant performs eyelid surgery on Toronto men and women between ages 35 to 85. This can, however, also be performed on somebody younger suffering from hereditary problems like drooping lids. Do keep in mind, though, that sagging brows or dark circles under the eyes cannot be remedied with this procedure.

How long is recovery  from eyelid surgery?

Once the procedure is completed, the sutures are lubricated using ointment. You may also require eye drops and bandages on the lower lids. After a period of 2 to 3 days, patients should be able to read, watch television or work on your computer. Patients from the Clearview and Scarborough areas can expect Dr. Plant to guide them through the recovery process.
