what is Eyelid Surgery?

Your eyes are one of the most important and noticeable features on your face. Sometimes as you age, your eyes can become droopy, saggy, or develop bags underneath. This can cause you to look tired and older than you actually are. An eyelid surgery, performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, can help to remove any excess skin, wrinkles, bags, and dark circles that are present on the upper or lower eyelids. He can help lift the skin and restore its appearance for more youthful, alert, and awake-looking eyes. You can learn about how to brighten up your face by contacting our Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery office in Louisville, KY. Our plastic surgeon will help you determine if you need an upper, lower, or combination eyelid surgery.

Audrey May is absolutely THE BEST Injector I have EVER experienced in 20 years and in four different states. She knows EXACTLY the right way to get you the results you want without having the side effects you have to put up with - specifically with forehead wrinkles- I refuse to let anyone inject me there because they would always droop my eyes. When I told Audrey my concern, she told me which muscle she would hit instead. IT WORKED! Everyone else had said that's the way it is. There is a reason she has been voted the best Injector the last 3 years!!

how is eyelid surgery performed?

Upper Eyelid Surgery

For upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Mizuguchi will make the incision within the natural fold of the eyelid. The incision will be extended outward as much as possible in order to address the extraneous skin folds located on the outside of the upper lid. After the incision is carefully made, he will remove the excess fat and skin. Afterward, the incision will be closed with absorbable sutures, which do not require removal. 

Lower Eyelid Surgery

For lower eyelid surgery, the incision will be placed along the bottom of the lash line to allow Dr. Mizuguchi access to remove the extraneous fat and tissue. A special technique called transconjunctival blepharoplasty is used if you have puffy lower lids but good skin tone. If you have dark under eye circles caused by a lack of fat in the area, you could benefit from injectables or fat fillers to add volume to the area.

For Upper & Lower Combined

Sometimes, both the lower and upper eyelids need to be addressed to correct all issues effectively. When both are combined, surgery can last around two hours.

how long is recovery after eyelid surgery?

Although eyelid surgery is usually an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility, it can also be performed as an in-office procedure with a milder form of general anesthesia called twilight sedation. After surgery, you can expect your eyelids to be bruised and swollen, which can be alleviated with ice packs, medicated eye ointments, or eye drops, and elevating the head. These symptoms should last a few days. Eyelid recovery is usually easy for most patients, and normal activities can be resumed within a week. You should expect natural-looking, younger, more refreshed eyelids after your surgery. In addition, scars shouldn’t be visible due to their placement.
