What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, is a surgical procedure that removes skin and either adds or removes fat from your eyelids. The surgery aims to create a more youthful appearance by reducing wrinkles and excess skin. Blepharoplasty can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids.

Dr. Genoway is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Surrey with extensive experience performing blepharoplasty on both men and women. Her goal is always to provide her patients with youthful, natural-looking results. To learn more about how eyelid surgery can revitalize your look and feel, contact Genoway Plastic Surgery today!

What are the benefits of blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery can help you look more rested, alert, younger, and refreshed. It can also help improve your vision if drooping eyelids interfere with your line of sight and correct asymmetry in the eyelids. The recovery time is usually fairly short, and most people report minimal pain and discomfort afterward. However, the surgery results are typically long-lasting, so you can enjoy your refreshed look for years to come! A blepharoplasty can be performed on patients of any age. So if you're considering an eyelid lift as a way to revitalize your appearance, contact Dr. Krista Genoway at Genoway Plastic Surgery today!

The Windows to Your Youth

Am I a good candidate for blepharoplasty?

A good candidate for blepharoplasty is anyone unhappy with the appearance of their eyes. Excess eyelid folds, drooping eyelids, or puffy bags under the eyes are typical signs of aging around your eyes, and this surgery is equally effective for men and women and can take years off your appearance. If you are considering blepharoplasty Surrey area residents or visitors are encouraged to contact Dr. Krista Genoway, an experienced surgeon who can provide you with the results you desire.

Specific Attention to Detail

Your Blepharoplasty Procedure

You can expect your eyelid lift to take between one and three hours, depending on your treatment plan. Dr. Krista Genoway will make incisions following your eyelids' natural lines to minimize visible scarring. Through these incisions, she will remove any excess skin and fat. She may also reposition the muscles and tendons around your eyes for a more youthful appearance. You will likely experience some bruising and swelling after your surgery, but this should subside within two weeks. Dr. Genoway will provide specific instructions on how to care for your eyes during this time.

Wake up to Bright Eyes

Blepharoplasty Recovery

Most people recover from eyelid surgery within two weeks. However, it is essential to remember that everyone heals at a different pace. You will likely experience swelling and bruising around your eyes for the first few days after your surgery. Icing the area for the first few days is vital to help reduce the swelling. You may also have some numbness around your incisions, which is normal and should resolve within a few weeks. Sleeping with your head elevated for the first week is essential to help reduce swelling. You should also avoid wearing makeup or putting any pressure on your incisions. Within a week or so, you should be able to return to your normal activities.

Energize Your Look

Blepharoplasty Results

You will see your results immediately following blepharoplasty. The incisions are usually well hidden in the natural creases of the eyelids. The skin of your eyelids may be slightly swollen and bruised for the first week or two, but this usually resolves quickly. Most people feel their results last for years, although some may need a touch-up procedure as they age.

What are the risks of blepharoplasty?

Any time you have surgery, there are risks involved. With eyelid surgery, some hazards include infection, bleeding, dry eyes, and difficulty closing your eyes. In rare cases, people have had visual problems after surgery. As with any surgery, talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits before the procedure.

How long will my eyes itch after blepharoplasty?

Dry, stinging, and itchy eyes are common side effects of blepharoplasty surgery. In most circumstances these side effects will resolve in the first few weeks.

MSP only covers blepharoplasty if it is determined medically necessary by your ophthalmologist because your skin significantly obstructs your vision. Dr. Genoway performs blepharoplasty for cosmetic purposes and this is not covered under MSP.
