Do you find yourself still looking tired after a full night’s sleep? If you look in a mirror and see too much fullness of the upper lid area or hanging skin you are certain to benefit from an eyelid lift. Eye Lid surgery can also improve the look of loose skin and bags under your eyes.
After your eyelid lift you can see more defined upper lid areas and wear eyelid makeup more effectively. Lower eyelids will appear smoother with fewer lines. As a result, you will look more rested and refreshed.
Eye Lid Surgery is performed in the comfort of Dr. McLean’s private facility in Mississauga. The procedure itself is performed under local or general anesthesia. In the upper lids, the incisions are hidden in the eyes’ natural creases. In the lower lids they discreetly appear in the shadow of the eyelashes. Stitches can be removed in only a few days. You can begin wearing makeup after a few days and return to nonphysical work as early as a week.
All surgeries run the risk of potential complications. For an overview of risks and concerns associated with surgery, please click here. Dr. McLean will provide a thorough review of the risk factors that are specific to you and your chosen procedure.
We all know that we take risks in life every day. The risks of surgery are very much like those of everyday life: really bad things (like being hit by a truck) are rare. Less bad things (like getting a hangnail) are more common.
When we think of the downside of surgery we think of things like infection (most infections are readily treatable), bleeding (generally well controlled during surgery), fluid collection, bad scars (wide, lumpy or discoloured, for example) and healing problems (leading to unexpected scarring). Most plastic surgery involves two sides of the body and they are never totally identical with or without surgery. Sensation can be altered by surgery. For example, loss of nipple sensation is a risk of many breast procedures.
As part of your preparation for surgery at the McLean Clinic, we provide you with information about the risks of the procedures you are undergoing. This is to inform you, not to frighten you! You will have the opportunity to discuss the risks with your doctor and we encourage you to ask questions and make sure that you understand everything you need to.
The cost of an Eye Lid Surgery varies according to what you and Dr. McLean determine is required to give you the look you want with the best results. Your questions and concerns will be addressed personally by Dr. McLean during an in-depth consultation.
The upper eye area can be affected by the eyebrows pushing the skin down toward the eye. Often a brow lift (forehead lift) can further enhance the look of the eyes and of the “crow’s foot” area beside the eyes. Fillers may help the lower lid area to improve hollow areas or hide bags. Our Lines & Wrinkles Treatment enhances the eye area by lessening crow’s feet and other lines, lifting the brows, or correcting the frown lines. Face lifts can help you achieve total facial rejuvenation.
