Cutis offers a variety of treatment options for the delicate eye area. Blepharochalasis, commonly known as droopy or redundant eyelid skin, can be treated with blepharoplasty surgery. Blepharoplasty removes excess skin and tissue from the upper or lower lid – restoring both the functional and aesthetic characteristics of the eyelid. Under the exceptional care of Cutis’ Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Ron Lemckert, ENT, our patients are treated to all the latest techniques and applications in eye rejuvenation. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Lemckert to learn more about your eyelid treatment options.
As a cosmetic surgery centre, Cutis is equipped in providing the highest level of care and safety to our patients. During a consultation with Cutis' Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Ron Lemckert, ENT, a general health assessment will be made to ensure treatment suitability. The treatment is performed under local anesthetic with low level sedation or general anesthetic depending on your desire and can last between one to two hours. Our highly trained professionals take every safeguard to ensure our patients are fully informed and prepared for both pre and post-treatment care.
Bruising, redness and swelling is to be expected. Effective pain management will be discussed and prescribed prior to treatment.
How It Works
Upper blepharoplasty: First, a delicate incision is made along the upper lid near the crease. Excess tissue is removed and/or repositioned, then the surrounding muscles are reinforced. Fine sutures (both permanent and dissolvable) are used to close the skin incision and minimize scar visibility. Lower blepharoplasty: can be completed with several different techniques but usually the transconjunctival approach is utilized so there is no visible scar. First a delicate incision is made along the inside of the eyelid to access the fat inside the eyelid that makes the lid look puffy or like it is sagging. Excess fat tissue is removed and/or repositioned to recontour the lower eyelid and margin of the orbit to rejuvenate the appearance. It is often done in conjunction with laser resurfacing of the eyelids. There are often no sutures with this technique and if they are used there are only 2 or 3 and they are removed in 5 days.
