Eyelid Lift

In contrast to bright, young eyes, stress and premature aging can cause the skin around the eyes to sag or puff up giving a person the appearance of tiredness or ill health. A simple technique known as a laser blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery that can remove bags or sagging skin above and below the eyes.


What is Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid Lift - Blepharoplasty - Cosmetic Surgery - Metro Detroit MI - Dr Roche - eyelid-lift-1Blepharoplasty is the surgical removal of excess pads of fat under the eyes or excess tissue over the eyelids which accumulates as part of the aging process. While blepharoplasty is usually performed in addition to a face lift and a endoscopic brow lift, the procedure itself does a great deal to rejuvenate the face. Often carried out under a twilight anesthetic, patients are discharged on the same day.

There are few features as hereditary as the appearance of the eyes. Often, men and women as young as 20 and 30 are in need of eye lid surgery to rewind hereditary and stress-related elements. Sad, tired, sagging eyes can make a person look older or angry just with their natural expression. Utilizing the CO2 laser scalpel, Dr. Roche has developed a procedure which dramatically reduces the bruising and swelling following eyelid surgery and restore an appropriate, youthful look.

Better Results, Shorter Recovery

Laser blepharoplasty and skin resurfacing has revolutionized aesthetic surgery of the eyelids and face. This exciting advance in technology allows for superior cosmetic results in both upper and lower eyelid surgery. As the laser scalpel seals blood vessels as it touches them, there is less bleeding, swelling, and bruising than with conventional “cold steel” surgery. This provides enhanced visibility for Dr. Roche as he works, allowing a more precise and rapid surgery. With significantly less postoperative swelling, recovery is generally swift and overall patient satisfaction outstanding.

Adjunctive resurfacing of the lower eyelids at the time of lower lid blepharoplasty results in a no-scar incision and erases the wrinkles from the lower eyelids, further improving the results and patient satisfaction.
