Who Is a Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

You may benefit from eyelid surgery, technically called blepharoplasty, if you want to:

  • Correct under-eye hollows and puffiness
  • Minimize wrinkles and sagging on your eyelids
  • Improve vision impaired by exceptionally heavy, “hooded” eyelids

Dr. Cutolo also frequently combines eyelid surgery with a second procedure, such as a brow lift for a more complete aesthetic solution.

Your Eyelid Surgery Procedure

If you are having upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Cutolo typically performs the procedure in his office, using local anesthesia to keep you comfortable throughout your procedure. Lower eyelid procedures are usually performed in a hospital using either local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. For the upper eyelids, Dr. Cutolo makes tiny incisions in the natural creases of your eyelids, hiding them so scars are practically invisible. After removing excess fatty tissue, he tightens loose skin and may make adjustments to the muscles.

For the lower eyelids, the incision is completely hidden and fat is removed as well. If needed, Dr. Cutolo uses laser technology to smooth your lower eyelid wrinkles and to reduce excess skin. Excess skin can also be reduced with a procedure called a “skin pinch.” Dr. Cutolo may also recommend adding BOTOX® Cosmetic to your eyelid surgery to minimize lines and wrinkles in the crow’s feet area. The procedure usually takes 1 to 3 hours. Dr. Cutolo will discuss these options with you during the consultation and will recommend which will give you the best and longest lasting results!

Recovery After Eyelid Surgery

By resting and limiting your movements, you can heal more quickly. Some patients experience minor discomfort from the procedure, which can be alleviated with oral medication. Using cold compresses will help to minimize discomfort and any swelling or bruising. After one week, you will return to Dr. Cutolo’s office, where he will remove your stitches and check your progress.

Eyelid Surgery Results and Benefits

Several weeks after eyelid surgery, any swelling or bruising usually is gone, revealing naturally beautiful results. Patients typically look more alert and rested. In place of sagging, puffy upper eyelids and bags under the eyes, they now have youthfully firm skin around the eyes and smoothly contoured eyelids.
