Eyelid Surgery in Moncton, New Brunswick

What is Eyelid Surgery?

Your eyes aren’t just important to your own sight. They also play a major role in how others see you. Eyelid surgery responds to sagging or wrinkling in the eyelids due to aging or genetics. Dr. Jayson Dool performs eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) for Moncton, New Brunswick, men and women who wish to achieve a younger, more awake appearance in and around their eyes.

Eyelid Surgery Benefits

This procedure corrects irregularities in the upper and lower eyelids by:

  • Correcting skin laxity and wrinkles in both the upper and lower lids.
  • Removing isolated areas of fat causing upper-eyelid puffiness and under-eye bags.
  • Improving overall definition between the eyelids and the surrounding skin.
  • Not only reducing the signs of aging but, for many patients, correcting vision obstruction caused by hooding.

How Does Eyelid Surgery Work?

Dr. Dool performs eyelid surgery on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home after your procedure. Your consultation will include a careful examination of your eyelids to determine the extent of surgery you will require.

You will receive either IV sedation or general anesthesia prior to your eyelid surgery. Dr. Dool makes the incisions for this procedure within the natural folds of your upper and/or lower eyelids, which will conceal any scarring.

Dr. Dool performs upper eyelid surgery through incisions made in the creases between the upper lids and the eyebrows. For lower eyelid surgery, he makes incisions either below the lower lash line or within the lower lid.

Eyelid surgery involves the removal and/or redistribution of fat and other tissues. By tightening skin and muscle, Dr. Dool corrects hooding, sagging, and drooping in the upper lids. This allows the eyes to open more easily. He can also remove excess fat and skin that cause bags under the eyes.

Dr. Dool will close your incisions using either sutures or skin adhesives.

Eyelid Surgery Recovery

Remember to arrange for someone to drive you to and from your eyelid surgery procedure. You will experience swelling and bruising after your surgery. Some patients are sent home with gauze wraps. Your eyes may feel irritated or dry for a few days. Prescription medication and cold compresses can help alleviate discomfort. You may need to sleep on your back for a few days.

Your eyelid surgery results will become apparent with the gradual fading of your initial swelling and bruising.

Eyelid Surgery Safety & Risks

Like any other surgical procedure, eyelid surgery presents some possible risks. You may experience dry eyes and impaired vision in the days following your surgery. You may also find it difficult to close your eyes completely for a few days.

Eyelid surgery also carries the risks inherent in any surgical procedure, including hematoma (blood accumulation beneath the skin), scarring, numbness, infection, and the risks associated with anesthesia.

Complementary Procedures to Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is often performed to enhance the results of a facelift. Some patients elect to have this procedure to complement the facial rejuvenation achieved by a brow lift. Many eyelid surgery patients also maximize their results with wrinkle-reducing methods such as BOTOX cosmetic.

Eyelid Surgery Fees

The price of your eyelid surgery procedure will depend on whether you require upper or lower lid surgery, or both. Anesthesia methods also play a role in the cost of blepharoplasty. In general, your procedure may cost $2000 to $10000 or more.
