Your Eyelids

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that focuses on rejuvenating the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. It is a popular choice among individuals who wish to address various concerns related to the eyes and surrounding areas. There are two primary types of blepharoplasty: upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty.

Eyelid Surgery Treats:

  • Sagging or drooping upper eyelids
  • Excess skin on the upper eyelids
  • Impaired peripheral vision due to droopy upper eyelids
  • Under-eye bags and puffiness
  • Wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes
  • Uneven or asymmetrical eyelids
  • Eyelid ptosis (drooping of the eyelids)
  • Excessive fat deposits in the eyelids
  • Tired or aged appearance of the eyes

Two Primary Paths:

Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper eyelid surgery primarily addresses concerns related to the upper eyelids. Over time, the upper eyelids may experience sagging, excess skin, and sometimes even obstructed vision due to the drooping of the eyelids. Upper blepharoplasty involves the removal of excess skin and, if necessary, fat tissue. A cosmetic eyelid surgery in Minneapolis results in a more open and youthful appearance of the upper eyelids, often accompanied by improved peripheral vision.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower eyelid surgery focuses on the lower eyelids and the surrounding areas. It is commonly chosen to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, puffiness, and wrinkles. During this procedure, excess fat and skin may be removed or repositioned to create a smoother, more refreshed look. Lower blepharoplasty can help individuals achieve a rested and rejuvenated appearance, diminishing the signs of aging that contribute to under-eye concerns.

Benefits of Eyelid Surgery:

  • Enhanced appearance of the eyes
  • Reduced signs of aging around the eyes
  • Improved peripheral vision (for upper eyelid surgery)
  • Smoother, more youthful eye contours
  • Long-lasting results
  • Customized to individual needs
  • Minimal visible scarring
  • Relatively quick recovery compared to other cosmetic procedures

Eyelid Surgery FAQs

Is eyelid surgery performed under general anesthesia?

No, eyelid surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation, which means you’ll be awake during the procedure but relaxed and pain-free. However, in some cases, especially when combined with other procedures, general anesthesia may be used.

How long does the procedure take?

The duration of cosmetic eyelid surgery in Minneapolis can vary depending on the complexity and whether you’re having upper, lower, or both eyelids done. On average, each eyelid takes 1 to 2 hours to complete.

What is the recovery time for eyelid surgery?

Recovery times can vary, but most patients can return to work and normal activities within a week. However, strenuous workouts should be avoided for four to six weeks. Complete healing and the disappearance of residual swelling or bruising may take several weeks to a few months.
