Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)

Objective

Blepharoplasty has made great progress in recent years. This surgery is aimed at removing bags under the eyes or to rejuvenate the upper eyelids when excess skin is present. The causes are either genetic, or the effects of aging.

A sagging eyebrow and excess skin of the upper eyelid are the warning signs for this type of operation. This procedure will restore to your eyes an appearance of freshness and youth. It will remove your tired expression while brightening your eyes.

The upper and lower lids can be operated separately or at the same time.

The Procedure

The procedure is generally done under local anesthetic, with or without intravenous sedation. Its duration varies between one and two hours. It involves removing the excess skin of the upper eyelids. As for the lower eyelids, the procedure removes or transfers any excess fat with occasionally the excision of a little skin.

During your consultation, Dr. Toupin will also discuss with you all aspects related to this type of procedure, its benefits as well as the risks that may be involved.
