BLEPHAROPLASTY in Rockford, IL

Discover the Power of Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is a transformative procedure that you have to see to believe. Please take a moment to view our beautiful before and after gallery to explore the possibilities.

Commonly known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is done to rejuvenate aging eyes – and turn back the hands of time.

WHAT CAN A BLEPHAROPLASTY DO FOR YOU?

  • Remove excess eyelid skin
  • Improve peripheral vision
  • Minimize heavy bags beneath the eyes
  • Restore a naturally refreshed expression
  • Smooth away fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet
  • Reduce puffiness around the delicate eye area

THE PROCEDURE

What To Expect During a blepharoplasty

Your Rockford blepharoplasty procedure at Pryor Health is done under general anesthesia, so you will be asleep throughout the entire experience. During surgery, the surgeon will address the upper and/or lower eyelids, depending on where your signs of aging are most prevalent.

Upper

During upper eyelid surgery, the surgeon will remove excess skin and minimize droopy eyelids – restoring a refreshed and well-rested expression.

To perform this surgery, they will create small incisions in the creases of your upper eyelids. Through those openings, they will remove excess skin and lift the remaining tissue to restore a subtly alert look.

Lower

Lower eyelid surgery focuses on removing fatty deposits beneath the eyes, plumping hollow areas, and restoring a smooth and youthful contour.

To perform this surgery, the surgeon will make a small incision hidden within the natural creases beneath your lower lash line. Through that tiny opening, they will remove excess fat and skin, while tightening lax muscles.

ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY?

Our expert staff will help you determine if a blepharoplasty can accomplish your cosmetic goals during your initial consultation at our Rockford office. In general, we have found that the best candidates for eyelid surgery are:

  • Unhappy with puffy, tired-looking, and sagging eyes.
  • Realistic about what eyelid surgery can accomplish.
  • Without certain eye conditions, such as glaucoma.
  • In good overall health.

Blepharoplasty Results

A Brand New You

With our surgeon's skillful eyelid surgery Rockford patients have received restored, youthful, well-rested looking eyes that positively transform their appearance. And for many of our patients, the results of their blepharoplasty lasts for years.

Though some scarring is inevitable, our skilled surgeon takes great care to place these marks so that they are concealed within the natural creases of your eyes. Thus, they are virtually undetectable once you have healed.

How to handle the recovery

There is a substantial recovery period associated with blepharoplasty. After the procedure, your eyes will be red and swollen, and you may experience excessive tearing, dryness and blurred vision. All of these effects are temporary and will disappear as you heal. Although we will review these details during your pre-operative appointments, here is a quick look at the recovery guidelines for eyelid surgery:

  • For several days, avoid any activities that may strain the eyes, such as reading, using a computer, or watching TV.
  • For one month, avoid any activities that may increase blood flow to the eyes, such as crying, exercising, and heavy lifting.
  • Wear dark sunglasses to protect your eyes.
  • Nap frequently to prevent eye strain.
  • Keep your head elevated.

You will need to return to the office one week after your procedure so that your surgeon can evaluate your progress, assess your scarring, and remove your stitches. After about ten days of recovery from blepharoplasty Rockford patients typically felt well enough to resume their normal daily activities.
