Droopy eyelids overshadow your vibrant eyes, and you want them to shine again. The best solution is a blepharoplasty — or eyelid surgery — one of the most effective cosmetic procedures.
Eyelid surgery is not only quick and easy, but it also delivers amazing results, which is why it sits in the top three cosmetic surgeries in the United States — more than 325,000 were performed in 2020 alone.
As a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in aesthetics, Dr. Julia Giyaur is uniquely qualified to perform eyelid surgeries, which is why it’s one of the most popular procedures here at Juno Aesthetics.
Here’s a look at how we put the focus back on your bright, beautiful eyes with blepharoplasty.
It’s no secret that, as we age, our skin loses elasticity and tone. This is because our collagen production naturally declines over time — by about 1% to 1.5% a year starting in your 20s. Not to mention collagen fibers can break down as you age, especially if they’re exposed to the sun.
As a result, your skin can droop and sag without this structural protein, and this effect can be especially evident around your eyes, where your skin is exposed and delicate.
Not only can folds of skin develop in your upper lids as the skin sags, but your lower lids can also become loose and pull away from your eye, and you can develop bags under your eyes as fat deposits shift around.
Through blepharoplasty, we reverse the aging process around your eyes by:
We can perform these steps on your upper lids, lower lids, and areas directly under your eyes, depending on your needs. While some people may only need work on the upper lids, others might benefit from upper and lower lid work.
Aside from being incredibly effective at revitalizing your appearance, our clients love eyelid surgery because it’s a fairly uncomplicated outpatient procedure.
We perform most blepharoplasties here at our office or a surgical center and don’t use general anesthesia. Instead, we use local anesthesia and/or a sedative to make you comfortable during the quick surgery, which only takes about an hour or two.
Afterward, once we check you out, you’re free to go home, where you should take it easy for a day or two.
In most cases, you should count on 10-14 days before you’re ready for the big reveal. For the first few days, you should expect some swelling and bruising, and cold compresses will help greatly during this time.
About a week after your eyelid surgery, we remove any sutures, and your swelling and bruising should start to subside. As they do, you’ll be delighted to see your eyes emerge again, making you look more alert and vibrant again.
