The eyes play a prominent role in facial expression and aesthetics. It is the eyes that often show the effects of time, age, and gravity before other parts of the face. The skin of the eyelids—being the thinnest of the body—may get wrinkled earlier. Aside from just wrinkling, the eyelid skin also becomes lax with the excess skin forming a fold on the upper eyelids or under the eyes. “Bags” form above and under the eyes and bulges appear, altering the natural, youthful contours of your eyes. Descent of the forehead can occur simultaneously causing crowding of the eyes. Dr. Diwan can perform a customized eyelid surgery procedure to restore your youthful appearance and improve the signs of aging.
How is eyelid surgery performed?
The excess skin, wrinkles, bags, or lowered brows make the eyes and face appear tired and older. Rejuvenation of the eyes can be achieved through cosmetic surgery treatments that address these problems, and help restore a more vibrant appearance. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a surgical procedure that is designed to treat excess skin and bags around the eyes.
Wrinkling of the skin can be treated using a combination of laser treatments and Botox®. Dr. Diwan may also recommend a brow lift, which restores the eyebrows to their original position by lifting the skin of the forehead and brow area.
Depending on the patient’s needs, one or a combination of the above procedures may be needed to achieve optimal results. Dr. Diwan will recommend the best treatment plan for you based on your condition and desired outcome. Blepharoplasty and brow lift operations can be safely performed in-office.

How long is eyelid surgery recovery?
After your eyelid surgery procedure, Dr. Diwan will provide you with detailed care instructions to help you through the healing process. The typical recovery period for upper eyelid surgery is about one week; and two to four weeks for lower eyelid surgery.
When will I notice the final results of my eyelid surgery?
Continued improvement occurs over a few weeks before a final result is reached. This may vary based on the specific methods used for your eyelid surgery with Dr. Diwan.
For a thorough evaluation of the problems that need correction, as well as the selection and discussion of appropriate treatments and planning, a consultation with Dr. Diwan is necessary.
