What is Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty in Raleigh & Cary, NC with Dr. Anu Antony addresses various concerns related to the aging eye area, including drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, puffiness, and wrinkles. The procedure involves removing or repositioning excess tissue and fat and tightening skin around the eyelids.

  • Upper Eyelid Surgery: Targets sagging or hooded eyelids that may impair vision and give the eyes a more open, awake appearance.
  • Lower Eyelid Surgery: Focuses on removing under-eye bags and tightening the skin to reduce wrinkles and puffiness.

Is Eyelid Surgery Right for You?

Eyelid surgery, when performed at  Antony Institute of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery, is a transformative procedure designed to address several aesthetic and functional issues. It can effectively resolve drooping upper eyelids that may impair vision by removing excess skin and fat, improving the field of sight and achieving a more alert appearance. This surgery also targets under-eye bags and puffiness, which often contribute to a tired or aged look, by gently removing excess tissue and repositioning fat for a smoother under-eye contour.

Additionally, blepharoplasty can minimize the appearance of fine lines and crow’s feet by tightening the skin around the eyes, enhancing the overall youthful appearance. This procedure can correct asymmetries between the upper eyelids, ensuring the eyes look more symmetrical and balanced. Overall, eyelid surgery rejuvenates the surrounding eye area, subtly leaving you looking younger, more alert, and more approachable.

The Eyelid Surgery Procedure

  • Anesthesia: Eyelid surgery is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and patient comfort.
  • Closure: The incisions are closed with fine sutures, minimizing scarring. Sutures are typically removed within a week after the surgery.
  • Correction: Excess fat, muscle, and loose skin are removed or repositioned to create a smoother, more defined eyelid contour.
  • Incision: In upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Antony makes a small incision along the eyelid’s natural fold. In lower eyelid surgery, the incision is made just below the lash line or inside the eyelid (transconjunctival approach) to minimize visible scarring.
