In-office surgery to conveniently treat eyelids right here in Niagara Falls, ON.
Surgical Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)
The eyes are the defining feature of your face . You first look at a person’s eye when you meet.
Therefore the eyes are important to attractiveness & youthfulness.
Sagging eyebrows and droopy upper lids and bags under the eyes often show as we age. Sometimes it is hereditary.
The loss of collagen and reduction in skin elasticity causes the skin to stretch and ripple & the muscle underneath the skin to weaken therefore the fat bag to bulge.
Blepharoplasty aims at removing the excess skin along with the bulging fat pads. This is done through skin incision along the natural crease line so they are not visible in both the upper or lower lid .
Lower lid blepharoplasty can also be done transconjunctival which allows access to the fat pads to remove them. The excess skin is further tightened with our Co2 laser or the Calibri plasma laser .
Alternatively, lower lid blepharoplasty is done through skin incision 1-2 mm from the lower eye lash & the excess skin is removed along with the bulging fat pads allowing for the smooth transition in the lid cheek junction .
Often fat transposition to the tear trough hollow is performed simultaneously.
Upper lid blepharoplasty aims at removing the excess hooding of the skin giving an aesthetically pleasing appearance & functionally unimpeded vision. Often the patient says I can see better and apply my makeup easier!
At New Creation medicosmetic we can also treat the Xanthelasma in the upper & lower lid using our Calibri Plasma.
How to prepare for the surgery day ?
Before & after photos are a form of documentation that is needed without it we will not proceed.
Stop using all your non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications for two weeks prior to your scheduled procedure. This includes advil, ibuprofen, motrin, Naproxen.
Discuss with the doctor if you are on blood thinners including : Coumadin or warfarin, heparin or lovenox,Plavix, Ticlid, Persantine or other NOAC which other anticoagulants used for some heart conditions. DR Kelada-Sedra is a familiar prescriber of these drugs and the safety guidelines in withholding them. She will guide you for when to stop & resume your medication without risk to your underlying health condition.
Take your regular thyroid, heart ,blood pressure the morning of as usual.
Make sure you have a ride home post operatively. You will recover post operatively in the office prior to your discharge.
Follow up appointment needed at one week, 6 weeks & three months post operatively
What do I expect post operatively ?
Post operative miniscule bleeding can happen. Bruise & swelling around the eye especially if you sleep flat the first night. We encourage sleeping propped up & being on a lazy chair semi upright to avoid waking up with your eyes swollen shut. Don’t be scared, a couple of hours in an upright position will help the swelling subside .
Use cold compressants & natural tear drops to moisturize the eyes.
Preferably use Tylenol as opposed to Advil for pain control if need be. Advil is an anti-inflammatory. Wound healing is an inflammatory process we encourage not suppress.
We use absorbable suture. DR kelada-Sedra prefers to follow any untoward adverse effects herself & gives you how to contact her & avoid using walk-in clinics or emergency rooms.
You can wear protective eye glasses for camouflage & return to your normal sedentary activities within days.
We ask you to avoid swimming or direct shower on your face. You can certainly shower giving your back to the water & allow a gentle down stream on your face.
Post operative follow up visits:
10 days ,1 month, 3 months & 6 months
At New Creation Medi Cosmetic we use other technology for the festooning under the eye.
Laser procedure can dramatically enhance the results.
