When you look at your eyes in the mirror, do you like what you see? Do your eyes look fresh and awake, or do they tend to look tired and sleepy even after getting plenty of rest?

Sagging, bags, droopy eyelids, and loose skin around the eyes can affect people of all ages. Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is an extremely effective way to rejuvenate the area around your eyes and make you look years younger.


Many people continue to live with skin problems around the eyes because they’re hesitant to have surgery or don’t know what to expect. But today’s procedures, when performed by a board certified, skilled plastic surgeon are safe and effective, and offer a short amount of downtime. Most patients can return to work within a week. You may look “back to normal” after just two to four weeks, but your body’s ability to heal will determine exactly how long this takes.

There may be some swelling or bruising in the initial recovery period, but much of this can be camouflaged with makeup. Any pain is manageable with pain relievers recommended by your surgeon.


Many people have asymmetrical eyelids, in which one eyelid has more skin than the other. This creates an uneven look to your eyes and can make one appear “lazy.” Eyelid surgery can correct this common issue because it is customized to your individual features and concerns. You’ll have a symmetrical look, and both eyes will be given a refreshed appearance.


Bags under the eyes are commonly caused by excess skin, and simply can’t be camouflaged with makeup. They tend to become more prominent as we age. Eyelid surgery is the single best way to get rid of these bags and achieve a youthful look to your eyes and your entire face.


Some people are genetically predisposed to droopy eyelids, which not only makes them appear older, but can interfere with vision. Eyelid surgery is an ideal way to remove excess skin, giving you a more wide-eyed, rested, youthful appearance. You’ll have eyes that reveal your natural beauty, leaving you wondering why you didn’t do it sooner.

One of the key advantages of eyelid surgery is you’ll have a more youthful look that can make your face appear happier and rejuvenated each day. And, you can put an end to those “you look tired” comments from others. To learn more about what eyelid surgery can do for you, please contact Quinn Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Center.
