As the most expressive feature on our faces, the eyes are often the first to show signs of aging, causing us to look tired or depressed, even when we aren’t. Blepharoplasty – or an eyelid lift – in Roseville can help restore a more vibrant, youthful expression. Blepharoplasty can take 10-15 years off the face by restoring the upper or lower eyelids to a more youthful state. If you have drooping upper eyelids or bags under your eyes, you may seek an eyelid lift at Sykes Facial Plastic Surgery to give your face a refreshed appearance.

Blepharoplasty can help you look fresh and vibrant on the outside to match how you feel inside. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss your aesthetic concerns with Dr. Sykes and build a plan to achieve your desired results together. Complete our contact form today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonathan Sykes and learn more about a Roseville Blepharoplasty.

What Is a Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty consists of upper or lower eyelid surgery. Upper blepharoplasty corrects sagging skin hanging over the eye and pockets of fat under the upper lids while minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes. Lower blepharoplasty diminishes puffiness or bags under the eyes, removes fatty tissue under the eyelid skin, and smooths under-eye wrinkles.

Blepharoplasty Surgery with Dr. Jonathan Sykes

What Happens During Blepharoplasty Surgery in Roseville ?

Dr. Sykes will artistically reposition your eyelids based on your aesthetic goals to refresh the eye area. Upper and lower blepharoplasty each takes approximately an hour, while the combined procedure of upper and lower eyelids takes roughly an hour and a half to complete.

UPPER EYELID SURGERY

This approach typically requires a combination of local anesthesia and oral sedation to maximize patient comfort during the procedure. Dr. Sykes will place the incision in the crease of your upper eyelid to hide the scarring once healed. Through the incision, he will remove fatty tissue and sagging skin, tightening the area and brightening the eyes for a younger, natural-looking appearance that maintains your face’s essence.

LOWER EYELID SURGERY

Requiring more meticulous care, lower blepharoplasty typically requires general anesthesia for the optimal outcome. Dr. Sykes will place the incision below the lower lashes to hide the scar once healed. If fat and skin need to be removed, Dr. Sykes may choose a transconjunctival incision inside the lower eyelid through which he can remove excess tissue and reposition the lower eyelid to a more youthful appearance.

The Roseville Blepharoplasty Recovery Process

Blepharoplasty recovery is surprisingly easy. Of course, you may experience mild bruising, swelling, and tenderness with potential dry eye or tearing for the first few days. Dr. Sykes recommends using cold compresses and elevating your head to minimize swelling.

Most patients must take seven to ten days off work and other social activities to rest and recover. You must avoid contact sports and vigorous exercise for at least three weeks. Dr. Sykes will stay connected with you throughout your recovery to ensure the healing is going well.
