Upper and Lower Eyelids



Upper Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Ptosis, often referred to as droopy eyelids, is the condition of excess skin in the eye area that can occur in one or both eyelids and can potentially impair vision and often cause a tired, aged or angry appearance. Ptosis can be caused by many things, with one of the most prominent culprits being age or genetics. A Blepharoplasty procedure, or eyelid lift, is the corrective surgical procedure for ptosis. This procedure removes excess skin and fat deposits around the eyes, revealing a more refreshed appearance which can potentially help improve vision.
Blepharoplasty Surgery Can Help:

  • Create a more youthful appearance around the eyes
  • Improve lines and wrinkles in the upper eye area
  • Reverse the appearance fatigue or aging caused by drooping eyelids
  • Remove loose skin around the eyelids that sags over the eyes that causes ‘hooding’
  • Reduce puffiness

How Is An Upper Blepharoplasty Performed?

A Blepharoplasty is typically performed under local anesthesia, although it may also be performed under light sedation anesthesia, depending on the patient. Once the patient has been sedated, Dr. Cole begins making incisions along the existing crease of the upper eyelids, to provide access to the underlying muscles and fat tissues. Incisions are hidden within the natural folds of the skin, and Dr. Cole takes great care to ensure visual scarring will not distract from his patients’ youthful results. This procedure is an outpatient procedure that usually lasts around an hour but varies on a case-by-case basis.

Lower Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Lower, puffy fat deposits and loose skin under the eyelid can often create the appearance of bags under our eyes that result in a more fatigued older appearance than what we really feel. By removing the baggy skin and puffy fat, patients are left with a rejuvenated, refreshed and more alert appearance.
Upper Blepharoplasty Surgery Can Help:

  • Remove saggy skin, fatty deposits and appearance of bags under the eyes
  • Create a more youthful and vibrant appearance
  • Improve fine lines around the eyes
  • Reduce puffiness by removing or reshaping fat under the eyes

How Is An Lower Blepharoplasty Performed?

A lower Blepharoplasty is typically performed under moderate, IV sedation. Once the patient has been sedated, Dr. Cole begins making an incision inside the lower eyelid to provide access to the underlying muscles and fat tissues.After making the incision, Dr. Cole begins reshaping the underlying tissue and removing or redistributing fat deposits as needed to eliminate under eye bags.
Incisions are hidden inside the lower eyelid and then cauterized, meaning that there are no sutures to be removed later. This procedure is an outpatient procedure that usually lasts around onehour but varies on a case-by-case basis.
