Eyelid Surgery Dublin OH
Eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty) is a corrective procedure commonly performed in our Dublin, OH facial plastic surgery facility. This procedure can reduce dark circles or “bags” under the eyes, remove excess wrinkles, and provide a more youthful appearance to the eyes by removing excess skin of the upper eyelids. One of the first things noticed about a person is their eyes. During the aging process, wrinkles, lines, and puffiness contribute to a tired or aged appearance. Blepharoplasty surgery is often performed in conjunction with other facial procedures such as a facelift or rhinoplasty (nose surgery).
Reasons for Considering Eyelid Surgery:
- Dark circles or bags under the eyes.
- Excessive skin or wrinkles surrounding the eyelids.
- A tired appearance or puffiness due to inherited factors.
- Trouble with peripheral vision because of excess upper eyelid skin
The surgical procedure includes tiny incisions made in the natural contours around the eyes which should leave no visible scarring. The surgeon will usually work on the upper eyelids first to remove any fatty tissue and tighten loose skin. Lower eyelids are completed next to eliminate puffiness and reduce dark circles. In some instances, laser technology may be used to smooth lower eyelid areas. Newer techniques may include Botox injections to firm fine lines and wrinkles.

The surgery generally takes about one to three hours and can be performed in the physician’s office or in the operating room. If additional cosmetic procedures are being performed, the eyelid surgery could last longer.
Normally, post-operative instructions call for plenty of rest and limited movement in order to speed up the healing process and reduce the recovery time. Patients sometimes report minor pain associated with surgery which can be treated with oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize the risk of potential problems by carefully following the post-operative directions given after the surgery. The healing process for this procedure is similar to other forms of cosmetic surgery; and, the benefits are long-lasting. Patients will have a more rested and youthful appearance.
