Eyelid Surgery
Charlotte, NC

Our Charlotte Eyelid surgery, in medical terms, a “blepharoplasty,” can reduce fatty deposits in the upper and lower brows and address hooded or drooping eyelids for a more refreshed look. To achieve a refreshed, more youthful look requires high level surgical skills – it is imperative that the correct amount of excess skin is removed to avoid a wide-eyed, “worked-on” look. Dr. Beck can help you look younger, more vital, and rejuvenated in the most natural way.

Why should I pursue eyelid surgery?

Among the reasons for pursuing eyelid surgery are the following:

  • Under-eye bags or puffiness make you look older.
  • Sagging skin in the upper lid is interfering with your vision.

Who is a good candidate for eyelid surgery?

If the skin of the upper lids is crepey or sagging or there is an excess of fatty tissue, or there are bags beneath your eyes, a blepharoplasty should be considered. The best candidates have realistic expectations for the surgery, and are non-smokers in good health.

Eyelid surgery in Charlotte is contraindicated for people with certain illnesses and conditions, including:

  • Dry eyes
  • Eye infections

  • Thyroid disease

Diabetes and thyroid disease do not automatically make someone ineligible for eyelid surgery, however, they will require that a primary care physician and/or ophthalmologist provide clearance for the procedure.

How can I find about more about eyelid surgery?

It begins with your private, one-on-one consultation with Dr. Beck. He will review your medical history, examine your eye condition, discuss your goals for the surgery and answer any questions you may have. He may also review before-and-after photos with you. This will give him a sense of your aesthetics and help him formulate a treatment plan, with due consideration both to what you envision, what would best harmonize with your other feature, and what would be realistic.

Additionally, he may recommend dermal fillers or other procedures to address the aspects of aging that a blepharoplasty does not resolve.

How is eyelid surgery performed?

“Sad eyes,” is a condition that can be corrected by repositioning and reinforcing tendons at the outer corner of the lower lid. This is an additional procedure but requires no additional incisions. Eyelid surgery typically takes about 2 hours.

For both upper and lower eyelid surgery, the incisions are positioned in the natural folds and contours of the eyes, so that the resulting scars will be virtually invisible.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

For upper eyelid surgery, the incision is made in natural crease in the eyelid. This allows access both up to the brow line and down to the lash line, so that fat deposits can be removed or repositioned, the muscles can be tightened, and excess skin can be removed.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

The incision for lower eyelid surgery may be made just below the lower lash line. Similarly, excess fat can be removed, repositioned or added, and excess skin removed. If the primary goal with the lower eyelid is to remove or redistribute excess fat, the incision may be made inside the lower eyelid. This type of incision is not used if skin is to be removed.

Recuperation

Initially, there may be some discomfort, a feeling of tightness in the lids and blurry vision due to swelling. These will dissipate within a day or two. Applying cold compresses and keeping the head elevated for the first 24 hours will help. Dr. Beck will remove the stitches within five to seven days, after which you can return to work.
