Dealing with Droopy Eyelids – How Surgery Can Refresh Your Appearance

cosmetic eyelid surgery montreal

In today’s fast-paced world, our eyes not only play a crucial role in how we see but also in how we are perceived. With time, however, the delicate skin around our eyes can succumb to the effects of aging, resulting in droopy eyelids that make us look more tired and older than we feel.

Fortunately, advancements in cosmetic surgery offer effective solutions for rejuvenating the eye area. Upper blepharoplasty, commonly referred to as eyelid surgery or an eyelid lift, stands out as a highly effective procedure to address this concern. Below, Dr. Arie Benchetrit, a renowned plastic surgeon in Montreal, provides insight into how this procedure can refresh your appearance.

What Causes Droopy Eyelids?

Droopy eyelids, or ptosis, can occur as a result of various factors, including aging, genetics, and lifestyle choices. Over time, the skin loses elasticity, and the muscles supporting the eyelids weaken, leading to a sagging appearance. This not only affects one’s aesthetic but can also impair vision and contribute to eye fatigue.

The Solution: Upper Blepharoplasty

Upper blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess skin, fat, and sometimes muscle from the upper eyelids to create a more youthful and alert appearance. This procedure can significantly improve the field of vision for those whose eyelids obstruct their sight, making it not just a cosmetic, but also a functional improvement.

This procedure involves making incisions in the natural crease of the upper eyelid. Through these incisions, Dr. Benchetrit carefully removes or repositions fat deposits, tightens muscles and tissue, and removes excess skin to create a smoother, more defined eyelid contour. The incisions are then closed with fine sutures to minimize scarring.

The Benefits of Eyelid Surgery

An eyelid lift offers numerous benefits, including:

  • A more youthful and refreshed appearance
  • Improved field of vision if the eyelids were obstructing sight
  • Reduction in eye fatigue, especially for those who strain to lift their sagging eyelids
  • Long-lasting results that can make a significant difference in one’s appearance and self-confidence
