Eyelid Surgery Winnipeg

The eyelids are often the first area of the face to show signs of ageing. As we age, loose skin in the upper and lower eyelids can make people look older and despite being well rested, completely exhausted. These “puffy eyes” or “Bags under your eyes” may even interfere with your vision. Blepharoplasty, through the removal of excess skin and fat in the upper and lower eyelids, seeks to create a brighter, more alert and refreshed facial expression.

How its done?

Through concealed incisions along the contour of the eye, excess skin and fat are removed under local or general anesthesia. Fat is sometimes repositioned rather than removed to fill hollows or troughs within the eyelid area as required.

Why choose us?

Eyelid surgery is a frequently requested cosmetic surgical procedure. At the WSC, our board-certified plastic surgeons have years of experience and excellence in the ‘art’ of this highly personal procedure. Our team of anesthesiologists, nurses and caregivers are devoted to providing you with the highest level of care. We do our best to keep you informed, put you at ease and provide you with a satisfying experience. Together, we can help you achieve your goals!

Am I a candidate?

All patients should have specific but realistic goals for the improvement of their appearance. Eyelid surgeries can be considered in individuals that are in good general health and without serious eye conditions. You must tell your surgeon if you have any of these medical conditions:

  • Eye disease such as glaucoma, dry eye or a detached retina
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure
  • Diabetes

Post-operative course

Eyelid surgery patients are discharged the same day of surgery. After your procedure is completed, lubricating ointment and cold compresses are usually applied, and in some cases your eyes may be loosely covered with gauze. Rest, keeping the head elevated and using ice packs regularly over the 2 days following surgery will minimize bruising and swelling.  Bruising may persist for 7 to 10 days after surgery, but can be covered with camouflage make up after 1 week. Initial healing may include dry eyes, incisional irritation and mild discomfort that can be controlled with medication, cold compresses and ointment.

Detailed pre- and post-operative instructions will be provided at the WSC.
