Eye Lift Case #29
Cosmetic Facial Surgeon: Dr. Richard Rival
Procedures Performed: Eye lift
This woman from the Toronto area was concerned that her upper eyelids drooped excessively and made her appear tired. She wished to lift up the sagging skin above her eyes that made her look less alert and positive. While these tissues typically do not begin to sag until middle age, many patients will choose to correct the problem in their 20s or 30s if hereditary characteristics or premature age signs prevent them from enjoying a youthful, more refreshed look. This woman consulted Dr. Rival due to his experience in head and neck surgery, and inquired about her Toronto cosmetic surgery options for the eyelids.
Dr. Rival began this patient’s upper blepharoplasty procedure with incisions located inside the natural crease of the upper eyelid, allowing him to reposition fat deposits, tighten any loose muscles and tissue, and remove excess skin. This approach also helps ensure that scars will be hidden following the patient’s recovery.
After her cosmetic surgery in Toronto, this patient is very satisfied with her more refreshed and alert look; in comparison to her pre-operative photo, she now looks significantly happier and less fatigued.
Blepharoplasty recovery is fairly quick, although most patients experience minor swelling and bruising that subside gradually, ultimately revealing smoother, better-defined eyelids that make the whole face look more energized and invigorated. While some patients will choose to combine their eyelid surgery with a face lift in Toronto, certain patients such as this woman will find that eyelid surgery alone is enough to transform their look completely.
