Can a Blepharoplasty in Toronto Get Rid of Tired Eyes? 

April 2nd, 2024 Share

Tired eyes can significantly impact your overall appearance and how you feel about yourself. They can make you look older, more fatigued, and less vibrant than you actually are. Fortunately, for those struggling with this issue, blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, offers a solution. 

At Visage Clinic in Toronto, Dr. Marc DuPéré specializes in cosmetic procedures that rejuvenate the face, including blepharoplasty, which can effectively address the tired look associated with aging or hereditary factors affecting the eyelids.

What is Blepharoplasty? 

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the eyelids. It can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. The goal is to remove excess skin, eliminate bags under the eyes, and reduce puffiness and drooping of the eyelids that contribute to a tired and aged appearance. This procedure can not only enhance your aesthetic but also, in some cases, improve vision by lifting droopy eyelids out of the line of sight.

The Benefits of Blepharoplasty

The benefits of undergoing blepharoplasty at Visage Clinic under the skilled hands of Dr. DuPéré are numerous:

  • Rejuvenated Appearance: By addressing the signs of aging around the eyes, blepharoplasty can make you look younger and more rested.
  • Improved Vision: For some patients, removing the excess skin of the upper eyelids can improve peripheral vision, which might have been obscured by the drooping skin.
  • Long-lasting Results: While no cosmetic procedure can stop the aging process, the results of blepharoplasty are typically long-lasting, with many patients enjoying the benefits for years to come.
  • Boost in Confidence: Looking refreshed and revitalized can significantly boost your self-esteem and confidence.

What to Expect During the Blepharoplasty Procedure

The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the surgery and Dr. DuPéré’s recommendation. In an upper eyelid surgery, Dr. DuPéré makes incisions in the natural crease of the eyelid to remove excess skin and fat. For the lower eyelid, the incision is made just below the lash line or inside the eyelid to remove or redistribute excess fat. The incisions are then carefully closed with sutures, which are typically removed after about a week.

Recovery and Results Following a Blepharoplasty

Recovery from blepharoplasty varies among patients, but most can expect some bruising and swelling for the first week or two. Dr. DuPéré and his team at Visage Clinic will provide detailed post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth and efficient healing process. Most patients are able to return to normal activities within 10 to 14 days, though strenuous activities should be avoided for at least a few weeks.

As the swelling subsides, the results of the blepharoplasty will become apparent. Patients often report feeling more awake and looking more refreshed. The removal of excess skin and fat can dramatically reduce the appearance of tired eyes, making you look more youthful and alert.
