Blepharoplasty Can Enhance Your Features & Your Confidence

Reduce Signs of Aging

Removing sagging skin and bags under the eyes can help you look the way you feel, boosting your self-confidence and impacting the way others view you.

Improve Peripheral Vision

If your upper eyelids droop significantly, it can be difficult to see your surroundings clearly. Removing this excess tissue can improve your vision.

Comprehensive Treatment

Dr. Brownrigg can combine eyelid surgery with other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift or rhinoplasty, to create even more dramatic results.

Blepharoplasty Is  a Consistently Popular Treatment

Ottawa Eyelid Surgery

Your eyes are often among the first things people notice about you. Unfortunately, age can give our eyelids a sagging, hooded appearance, resulting in a fatigued look. In extreme cases, the drooping of our eyelids can even restrict our vision.

Fortunately, Ottawa, Ontario residents have an excellent option available to them: eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, performed by talented facial plastic surgeon Peter Brownrigg, M.D. Eyelid surgery corrects the tired or angry appearance of sagging or bulging eyes by carefully excising extra skin and fat from the eye area. Blepharoplasty is also excellent in correcting the under eye bags that can make you appear tired.

The skin around the eye is extremely delicate, so choosing a facial plastic surgery specialist like Dr. Brownrigg in Ottawa, Ontario is a must. When skillfully performed, blepharoplasty leaves minimal scars, allowing eyelid surgery patients to enjoy an attractive, rested, and youthful appearance.

Eyelid surgery, already one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures, is only increasing in popularity. This is partly because there are various types of eyelid surgery that address a wide range of needs. Upper eyelid surgery, for example, is highly effective in correcting the “hooding” and puffiness of the upper eyelid and inner corner of the eyelid. Upper eyelid surgery restores a more youthful, alert appearance, and can also be used to enhance the upper eyelid crease. Lower eyelid surgery targets the bulging fat of lower eye bags. There is also a type of eyelid surgery, called transconjunctival blepharoplasty, which is suitable for people with more elastic skin. In this procedure, no skin is removed, just fat.

Depending on your needs, Dr. Brownrigg would be happy to discuss the various types of eyelid surgery with you during your consultation at our Ottawa center.

The recovery time from eyelid surgery is brief, requiring only about seven to 10 days. Dr. Brownrigg will explain what to do, and what to avoid, during your healing period to ensure the smoothest recovery possible.

Blepharoplasty patients sometimes combine their eyelid surgery with other procedures, such as facelift surgery or an endoscopic browlift, 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.
