Questions About Eyelid Rejuvenation

Eye Care Specialists Serving Bend, OR and Surrounding Areas


What is the process for eyelid rejuvenation?

During eyelid rejuvenation surgery, a local anesthetic will be administered to the surgical area to reduce discomfort, and you will be offered a mild sedative to help relieve anxiety. Once you are sufficiently comfortable, our eye surgeons work along the natural folds of your eyes to remove excess skin, muscle, and fatty tissue, revealing a more youthful and attractive appearance. The strategic placement of the incisions will hide the visible traces of your eyelid rejuvenation so that your youthful new look appears completely natural.

What is recovery process from eyelid surgery?

Recovery from eyelid rejuvenation surgery is very simple. The initial healing time takes about two days. During this time you should rest and apply cold compresses to your eyes. Some bruising is natural and is not a cause for alarm. Normal activities can be resumed after two days, but we recommend avoiding strenuous activities for at least two weeks.

Some slight pain or discomfort is not uncommon in the hours following your surgery. This pain is temporary, and can generally be relieved with over-the-counter pain medications.

Can eyelid surgery make my features look unnatural?

Infocus Eye Care’s board-certified eye surgeons, Dr. Alul, and Dr. Buehler will make sure they provide you with a vibrant, youthful look that accentuates the natural beauty of your eyes. Taking great care to customize your surgery, our doctors are able to enhance your natural features. The end result often has a positive impact on your facial expressions, and can leave you looking not only younger, but happier and less tired as well.

How long do the results from eyelid rejuvenation last?

Genetics play a larger role in sagging, droopy eyelids than gravity. Because of this, eyelid rejuvenation surgery lasts substantially longer than other forms of facial cosmetic surgery. Hereditary deficiencies are much less likely to re-express themselves after surgery, meaning your results may last for a lifetime.

Can men get eyelid rejuvenation surgery?

We know how important it is to create a natural look that blends in with the features of your face.
