Am I a Candidate for Blepharoplasty/Eyelid Surgery?

If you answer “yes” to any of the following questions, you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery.

  • Do you desire more “open” eyes?
  • Does excess skin cover the natural fold of your upper eyelids?
  • Is your vision impaired by loose skin from your upper eyelids?
  • Do your lower eyelids have a droopy or puffy appearance?
  • Would you like to have a more rested or alert appearance?

How Is Blepharoplasty/Eyelid Surgery Performed?

At Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center, upper eyelid surgery is performed by making an incision in the natural crease of each eyelid. Excess skin and fat are removed through these incisions, which are closed with fine sutures. Over time, the scars fade and are hidden in the creases of the eyelids.

In lower eyelid surgery, the incisions are made either in the lash lines or on the inside of the eyelids. Excess fat that causes puffiness is removed though an incision made inside the lower eyelids. Minimal to no visible scarring results from this procedure.

Your Blepharoplasty/Eyelid Surgery Consultation

During the consultation appointment at his office in Greensboro, Dr. Coley asks questions about vision, tear production, use of corrective lenses, and expectations. This information plus age, skin type, ethnic background, and degree of visual obstruction helps him determine the best course of treatment. This surgery does not reduce wrinkling around the eye or lift a drooping brow. Therefore, eyelid surgery is often combined with a forehead and/or skin resurfacing to achieve the best result. During the consultation, Dr. Coley will show you before and after pictures of patients in Greensboro who have undergone eyelid surgery.

During Blepharoplasty/Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is performed at Dr. Coley’s practice in Greensboro as an outpatient procedure with local anesthesia and a sedative. The client remains awake but is insensitive to pain. Eyelid surgery commonly takes between one and two hours.

Understanding Blepharoplasty/Eyelid Surgery Recovery

During the first 48 hours following surgery, clients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These symptoms are easily managed through the use of analgesics, cold compresses, and head elevation. The majority of clients return to normal activity within a few days with some restrictions on strenuous activities.

What are Typical Results of Blepharoplasty/Eyelid Surgery?

Most of Coley Cosmetic & Hand Surgery Center’s clients experience a marked improvement in the appearance of their eyes. Bags and bulges are significantly reduced if not completely eliminated. Some clients may actually experience slight improvement in their eyesight or peripheral vision as a result of the removal of excess tissue.
