Cosmetic eyelid surgery is designed to enhance the upper and/or lower eyelids, resulting in a brighter, more alert, and rested appearance. Some patients want eyelid enhancement to reverse signs of aging, while others may have inherited conditions that can cause them to seek surgery as young adults.
Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) in Ottawa can correct loose, hanging upper eyelid skin, bags and dark circles under the eyes, sagging lower lids, and eyelid puffiness. Surgically removing and tightening the excess skin, fat and muscle of the eyelids can correct these concerns. In addition, Dr. Howard Silverman can combine eyelid surgery with related procedures that target concerns such as crow's feet, frown lines, and drooping eyebrows.
Any medical conditions accompanying eyelid problems, such as dry eyes, thyroid abnormalities, glaucoma, high blood pressure, or diabetes, may require special attention. Dr. Silverman will discuss these issues with you during your consultation.

Eyelid Surgery Procedure
The eyes are possibly the most expressive portion of one's face, and often conveys emotions and mood. As such, the appearance of the eyes is of paramount importance in one's facial aesthetics. The eyelids often reveal the first signs of facial aging and relaxation that patients wish to address. Blepharoplasty in Ottawa is a commonly performed cosmetic procedure. The results often last for many years and can dramatically improve your appearance. During your initial consultation, Dr. Silverman fully evaluates your eyes, describes the procedure, and discusses any related potential complications.
During your eyelid surgery, Dr. Silverman removes the excess fat and skin from your upper eyelids. He makes the incision in the creases of your upper eyelid to remove the excess skin and fat. Dr. Silverman then repositions and tightens the remaining tissue to create a youthful appearance.
To address the lower lid, Dr. Silverman makes incisions and removes excess fat and skin. He then tightens and contours the remaining tissue to provide a tighter and tauter appearance. In addition, Dr. Silverman can improve your appearance by tightening and repositioning the underlying muscles in the area. In Ottawa, every eyelid surgery procedure is uniquely tailored to the individual. Dr. Silverman will address specific concerns and desires during your consultation.
