Eyelid Surgery

Your eyes can be your most striking feature, and you want them to communicate youth and vitality. Having healthy, younger-looking eyelids can significantly enhance your appearance.

Dr. Louis Iorio performs upper and lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) to help restore your youthful gaze by correcting loose skin, pouching, and sagging around the eyes. Your brows can even be carefully repositioned to enhance your newly contoured eyelids. With the latest technology in eyelid surgery at his disposal, Dr. Iorio can "turn back" years of aging reflected in your eyes.

What is upper and lower eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a corrective procedure to help reduce dark circles or bags under the eyes, remove excess wrinkles, correct eyelid drooping, and provide a younger and fresher appearance to the eyes.

Eyelid lifts are commonly performed at the same time as a faceliftbrow lift, or skin resurfacing treatment, but may also be performed alone.

What are the benefits of upper and lower eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery can improve any of the following conditions:

  • Dark circles or bags under the eyes
  • Excessive skin or wrinkles surrounding the eyelids
  • Tired appearance or puffiness due to inherited factors

An eyelid lift may also be performed to correct eyelid drooping caused by medical conditions and aging. An eyelid lift can make tired aging eyelids look youthful, alert, and refreshed.

How is upper and lower eyelid surgery performed?

Dr. Iorio is highly experienced at performing blepharoplasty, where he will make tiny incisions within the natural contours around the eyes. These incisions should leave no visible scarring. Dr. Iorio generally performs surgery on the upper eyelids first to remove any fatty tissue and tighten loose skin, and follows with the lower eyelids to reduce puffiness and lessen dark circles.

Iorio Plastic Surgery & CosMedical Center uses the most advanced technology for upper and lower eyelid surgery, giving you the most natural looking results. Other treatments such as laser skin resurfacing and Botox can enhance other areas of the face to give you a complete look of rejuvenation!

Upper and lower eyelid surgery usually lasts about one to three hours in total.

What happens after upper and lower eyelid surgery?

Though the healing process for upper and lower eyelid surgery can be longer than other types of cosmetic surgery, the results can be very long-lasting.

Generally, after upper and lower eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), you will need to keep your eyes lubricated with eye drops and your head elevated to reduce swelling. You won’t be able to wear contact lenses for about two weeks, and you can usually return to work in a week to 10 days.
