4 Types of Eyelid Surgery
Upper EyelidIf your eyes constantly look tired or your lids block your visual field, you may be a good candidate for upper eyelid surgery. During this procedure, Dr. Brownrigg will create an incision along the crease of the upper lid, remove excess skin, and tighten the surrounding tissue.
Lower EyelidIf you have permanent bags underneath your eyes, you may be a candidate for lower eyelid surgery. During this cosmetic procedure, Dr. Brownrigg will create discreet incisions just below or inside the lower lids. He will then remove excess fat, creating smooth, rejuvenated contours.
Blepharoplasty patients sometimes combine their eyelid surgery with other procedures, such as facelift surgery or an endoscopic brow lift, for more dramatic results. As a face and neck surgery specialist, Dr. Brownrigg is skilled in determining which procedure or procedures will allow you to achieve your goals.
This type of eyelid surgery is suitable for people with more elastic skin. In this procedure, no skin is removed, just fat.
Dr. Brownrigg's Priority Is Your Safety & Comfort
You may be apprehensive about undergoing surgery on such a delicate part of your body. However, you can rest assured that Dr. Brownrigg follows the strictest standards of care when performing your surgery and will provide support throughout your recovery.
Pain is also a common patient concern. Local anesthesia will be used to numb your eyelid during surgery, and sedation will be administered to keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout the entire process. After surgery, pain medication can be used to manage any discomfort.

Preparing for Your Blepharoplasty
The first step in preparing for surgery is to schedule a consultation. You and Dr. Brownrigg will discuss your goals, medical history, and current prescriptions. Dr. Brownrigg can also determine if you are a good candidate at this time. If you are approved for cosmetic surgery, you will prepare by:
- Adjusting medications that could increase the risk of surgical complications
- Quitting smoking
- Arranging for a friend or loved one to accompany you to surgery
- Taking time off work
- Following a detailed list of pre-op instructions
Life After Eyelid Surgery
Your final results should be visible within a few months of your surgery. Although your skin will still be subject to the effects of natural aging, there are many ways to keep your results looking as good as possible. Avoid excessive sun exposure or wear protective eyewear, such as wraparound sunglasses. Also, refrain from smoking since smoking causes premature skin aging and other damage.
Blepharoplasty vs. Non-Surgical Treatment
For patients who are not quite ready to undergo eyelid surgery, our Ottawa practice has non-surgical treatments available. BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers can also address wrinkles around your eyes and are a more affordable option for many patients. However, these treatments must be touched up every few months and cannot correct sagging or excess skin. If these are your primary concerns, a surgical eye lift is typically your best option.
