Achieved With Eyelid Surgery

Excess skin accumulation on the upper eyelids can cause them to be heavy. As your eyelids begin to droop, you may notice a change in your appearance or that your ability to see worsens. The unwanted skin from around your eyes is eliminated during eyelid surgery for a brighter facial appearance and improved peripheral vision.

Eyelid Surgery Techniques
Upper Eyelid Lift

Upper Eyelid Lift

  • Your incision is placed in the natural crease of the upper eyelid to prevent visible scarring
  • Excess upper eyelid skin is trimmed away, and unwanted fat deposits are removed
  • The remaining tissues are repositioned to improve eyelid appearance and visibility
  • Dr. Baker takes great care to remove only the necessary amount of tissue to prevent interference with eyelid closure
Lower Eyelid Lift

Lower Eyelid Lift

  • A transcutaneous approach places the incision just below the lash line to reduce scarring and to lift the lower lid
    • Excess lower eyelid skin is removed
  • A transconjunctival approach creates the incision along the inside of the lower eyelid for no visible scarring
    • Fat is removed or repositioned from within the lower eyelid
    • A puffy under-eye appearance is often caused by fatty tissue in the lower eyelids
Addressing Any Concerns You May Have

You will experience some bruising and swelling around the eyes. Cold eye compresses and keeping your head elevated will help minimize excess swelling. An antibiotic eye ointment should be applied to improve healing. Patients may wear sunglasses to hide their healing eyes in public and to protect their incisions from direct sun exposure. Patients can return to work within one week of their surgery and can usually resume their regular exercise routine after three weeks. Your swelling may last up to six weeks following your procedure.
