Eyelid Surgery at Young Medical Spa
Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a facial contouring procedure that is performed for both aesthetic or medical reasons. Young Medical Spa® offers three types of eyelid surgery, including upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid surgery, and laser eyelid surgery performed by double board certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Aaron Shapiro.Upper eyelid surgery improves the appearance of droopy eyelids that can impair a patient’s vision and cause the face to look aged. Incisions are made at the lines and creases of the eyelids to reduce the appearance of scarring. Fat, muscle, and loose skin are removed to improve the patient’s vision and result in a younger-looking appearance.Lower eyelid surgery is typically performed to correct puffiness and excess skin below the eyes. Incisions are made along the lash line and smile creases to hide scarring. Excess fat, muscle, and skin are removed to reduce puffiness and result in more youthful look around the eyes. For those who experience a sunken or hollowed appearance around the eyes, dermal fillers or a fat transfer can be performed to restore volume to the area for an overall younger look.

Frequently Asked Questions about Eyelid Surgery at Young Medical Spa
Patients can expect a decrease in excess skin and puffiness. If the patient’s vision was previously impaired due to a droopy upper eyelid, a blepharoplasty can result in vision that is no longer impaired.
A surgical blepharoplasty is ideal for those with moderate to severe excess skin and puffiness.
Minimal downtime is associated with eyelid surgery procedures. Most patients experience bruising or swelling and can manage pain by applying an ice pack to the treated area. We recommend taking up to four days off from work and strenuous activity.
We highly suggest not wearing any eye makeup for up to ten days following your procedure. Makeup can cause an infection if it comes in contact with an incision.
