Excess, sagging skin above or below your eyes can cause you to appear tired or angry, even when you’re not. Eyelid Surgery can give the eyes a rejuvenated, younger appearance.

What is Eyelid Surgery?

Eyelid Surgery is done to remove eyelid bags and hoods, saggy eyelid skin, and puffiness of the upper and lower eyelids. Oftentimes, these signs of aging can cause low-self esteem and even vision impairment in some patients.

How is Eyelid Surgery done?

The procedural steps that are taken are dependent on whether upper or lower Eyelid Surgery is being done. Many aspects will determine which steps will be taken during plastic surgery in Boston, including the underlying muscle structure, bone structure, and the amount of skin and fat that needs to be removed.

During upper Eyelid Surgery, an incision will be made in the fold of the upper eyelid. During lower Eyelid Surgery, the incision will be made just below the lower lash line. Tissues will then be removed through these incisions using a variety of surgical instruments and techniques. Sutures will then be used to reconstruct areas of the eyebrow and eyelid.

Who is a good candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

Candidates for Eyelid Surgery are men who have excess, sagging skin on the upper or lower eyelids. This skin can also cause deep grooves to appear, making you look sad or angry. During your consultation with Dr. Nathan Narasimhan, he will help to determine whether Eyelid Surgery is a good fit for you.

What should I expect during recovery from Eyelid Surgery?

Recovery from Eyelid Surgery takes two to three weeks. Directly after surgery, patients may experience sensitivity to light or double vision. Ice packs may help to bring down any swelling that may occur. Pain is usually minimal but can be controlled with pain medication.  Any non-absorbable sutures will be removed after two to three days.
