If your eyelids naturally have a fold that creates a hood over your eye, you may feel self-conscious about your appearance. Loose, sagging skin around your eyes can create the illusion that you are always tired or not well-rested. Some people even experience vision impairment because their eyelids droop so low.
Thankful Eyelid surgery is a popular solution to help boost confidence and reduce the appearance of excess skin and wrinkles.
When to Consider Eyelid Surgery
Here are some common reasons that patients come to us wanting to learn more about eyelid surgery:
Deep grooves under your eyes that don’t go away
Excess, hanging skin that covers the natural fold of the upper eyes
Puffy upper and lower eyelids that result in constantly looking tired
Loose upper eyelid skin that hangs over your eyelashes
Will There Be Any Scars?
Before undergoing eyelid surgery in Naperville, our team will mark your natural creases to keep any scars as hidden as possible. We will also utilize fine sutures to further minimize scar visibility.
For lower eyelid surgery, we will make a subtle incision along your lower lash line. In some cases, we are able to correct eye puffiness by making an incision inside the lower eyelid, but this particular method cannot be used to remove excess skin surrounding the eyes
Following your procedure, you will need to rest, ice, use small gauze pads, and take over-the-counter pain meds as needed. You may experience excessive tearing and sensitivity to light immediately following the procedure, but this will subside. Pain and bruising will also lessen over time.
After about 10 days, you may feel ready to start resuming a more normal routine, but our team will give you specific instructions to follow.
