Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) in Columbus, OH
What is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid Surgery in Columbus, OH is performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Fernando Colon, MD. Eyelid Surgery on the upper eyelid removes excess skin and improves sagging or drooping eyelids. When performed on the lower eyelid, fatty pouches, commonly referred to as "under eye bags", are removed to eliminate the appearance of under eye circles.
Eyelid Surgery is performed on both eyes during the same surgery, which is why many people refer to it as "double eyelid surgery'. Double Eyelid Surgery or Eyelid Surgery offers dramatic improvement to the overall appearance of the face, giving men and women a more rested, energetic and youthful eye area.

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery in Columbus, OH is performed in The Skin Center Medical Spa's accredited surgical facility located in Gahanna, OH. During Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery of the upper eyelid, Dr. Colon will make an incision along the crease of the upper eyelid, removing excess skin. Tiny sutures are used to close the incision that is hidden within the crease of the eye, making the scars virtually undetectable.
During Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery of the lower eye lid, Dr. Colon will remove the fat pads or under eye bags beneath the eye by making a tiny incision inside the lower eye lid where it is completely hidden from view. The scars will be completely undetectable when healed.
Eyelid Surgery in the Columbus, OH surgical center may take one to two hours depending on the type of Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery performed.
Recovery from Eyelid Surgery will vary from patient to patient. Following surgery, the eyelid area will be swollen and bruised. Pain medication and bed rest are recommended for three to five days. After this period, most Eyelid Surgery patients feel well enough to resume light daily activities. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for about three weeks. Bruising after Eyelid Surgery may take two weeks or longer to completely diminish, however makeup can be applied to help conceal the bruising.
Most individuals are able to return to work in about a week after Eyelid Surgery, depending on their occupations. When lower Eyelid Surgery is performed alone, cover-up makeup may be applied after 48 hours to conceal any bruising. If a chemical eye peel is performed with either type of Eyelid Surgery, camouflage makeup cannot be worn for 10 days.
The results from Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery are noticeable immediately and continue to improve as the bruising and swelling diminishes.
