You can tell a lot from a person’s eyes! Sometimes that extra skin, puffiness, and/or wrinkles around the eye can create a very tired, unhappy, and aged appearance. An eyelid lift offered by Dr. Nykiel can address either the upper eyelid, the lower eyelid, or both. An eyelid lift helps to “open” the eye, restoring the natural shape to the eyelid and removing any puffiness from fat. The eyelid lift is an extremely powerful surgery that allows the signs of aging to be significantly reversed. It will create that rested, refreshed, and youthful appearance. Contact us today!
As people age, their eyelids tend to become droopy or baggy. This not only degrades one’s aesthetic appeal but can also have an adverse effect on one’s visual prowess. The procedure is safe and highly effective, with a very low chance of risk when performed by a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Nykiel in Ontario, CA. The results are highly satisfying for patients.
Eyelid surgery is most preferred by people within the age group of 45 – 60 years of age. This is mostly because as we age, our skin tends to loosen up, resulting in droopy and baggy eyelids. However, eyelid surgery can be done for any age group depending upon the eyelid condition. A consultation with Dr. Nykiel is advised to determine if eyelid surgery is the right course of action for your particular needs.
The procedure involves surgically removing excess skin from your eyelid. The surgeon would mark the areas in the eyelid where incision will be made. The eyelid is also lifted to ensure no loose appearance persists. The procedure involves using anesthesia to ensure the patient do not suffer any pain during the process. The sutures used for the lifting of the eyelids dissolve into the skin.
After the eyelid surgery is completed, antibiotic ointment is applied to soothe the eyelids. The complete recovery period may last up to two weeks during which the eyes and the area surrounding it may show temporary redness There will be minor swelling in the treatment area, but this is temporary and can be reduced by applying ice packs. Any discomfort from the surgery can also be addressed with medication that we can provide you.
