WHAT IS EYELID SURGERY?
As you grow older, the gradual weakening of your eyelid muscles and the accumulation of fat above or below your eyelids can lead to drooping eyelids, under-eye bags, and other cosmetic problems. An eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that repairs droopy eyelids and reverses the signs of aging on your eyelids.
Eyelid rejuvenation may begin by restoring the position of your eyebrows followed by removing excess skin from the eyelids. This will reduce the sagging and drooping appearance, making your eyes look youthful and alert.
In some cases, your eyelid surgery can be complemented with carefully administered fat injections. If you have under-eye hollows due to the loss of volume and collagen, Dr. Wu can harvest fat cells from other parts of your body and inject them into your under-eye region. This can reduce puffiness and under-eye hollows, thereby improving the results of your eyelid surgery.
YOU’RE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR EYELID SURGERY IF YOU:
- Are in generally good physical and mental health.
- Don’t have underlying medical conditions that prevent optimal wound healing or recovery.
- Don’t smoke or are willing to stop smoking several months before and after the surgery.
- Have realistic expectations from eyelid surgery.
- Have saggy or droopy upper eyelids, excess skin on the upper eyelids, poor peripheral vision, or bags under your eyes.
Dr. Chaowen Wu carefully examines your eyelids, discusses your goals, and reviews your medical history to ensure you’re a suitable candidate. She favors natural procedures that improve your overall facial appearance while ensuring natural-looking results inspired by your own body.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING EYELID SURGERY?
Your eyelid surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with sedation. Dr. Wu avoids general anesthesia to negate the possibility of the associated risks. The specific surgical techniques depend on your specific cosmetic goals and concerns. For upper eyelid surgery, the incision will be made along the natural crease of the upper eyelid. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision will be made just beneath the lower eyelid lashes.
After making the necessary incisions, Dr. Wu will carefully remove the appropriate amount of unwanted skin from your eyelids and reposition the muscles. Furthermore, if you have dark circles or under-eye hollows, the surgeon will draw fat cells from other parts of your body, such as the abdomen, and inject them under your eyes. This will make your eyes look more youthful and brighter.

Because your face represents you to the world, a facelift may be the most intimate procedure you have ever considered. The goal of facelift surgery is to tighten the facial skin by removing excessive skin from the face due to age, hereditary factors, or weight loss. Learn how Dr. Wu can preserve all of your defining features with a gentle facelift.
If you are bothered by signs of aging in your lower face including jowls, marionette lines, and general loss of definition in your jawline, the mini facelift can provide the solution to these problem areas. The incisions are kept in natural creases to keep them concealed.
A neck lift is the most powerful way to treat advanced neck aging including horizontal wrinkles, vertical neck bands, loose neck muscle and loose skin that form the dreaded “turkey wattle.” It is often combined with a facelift procedure to achieve harmonious rejuvenation as it uses the same incision around the ears.
Facial volume is lost over time and can be restored to your youthful self using your own fat. Facial fat transfer heals without scars and provides a natural, soft, and lasting alternative to fillers. This is a great way to rejuvenate the eyes, cheeks, and even lips with minimal down time.
Aging of the eyelids can appear as eyelid hooding, hollowing, dark circles and puffiness under the eyes, and just general tired appearance. Eyelid surgery can remove excess skin and reposition the fat to reawaken tired eyes.
Your eyebrows frame your eyes and with age may start drooping. This can lead to the appearance of looking sad, tired, or angry. A brow lift restores the eyebrows to a youthful position which can help you look rested and relaxed.

How long does the Revel EyeLift last?
The Revel EyeLift will last years as long as you maintain a stable body weight. As our skin continues to age over time, further procedures may be desired.
What is the down time after eyelid surgery?
It may take 1-2 weeks for the swelling and bruising to dissipate after eyelid surgery. Generally individuals will feel comfortable being out in public after 1-2 weeks.
How can I determine if I need a brow lift, upper eyelid lift, or both?
If you have both saggy brows and upper eyelids, a brow lift will likely be recommended to address your symptoms. Once your brows are in proper position and your upper eyelids are still saggy, then an upper eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) procedure may also be recommended.
