Toronto Eyelid Surgery – Dr. Goldberg
Goldberg Centre for Vision Correction & Cosmetic Surgery
Over the years, Dr. Chaim Goldberg has become renowned as a highly accomplished Toronto eyelid surgery provider. He performs this procedure to help patients achieve a more refreshed, energized facial appearance. Because the eyes are the focal point of the face, even minor changes to this area can deliver remarkable overall facial rejuvenation effects. In the paragraphs below, Dr. Goldberg explains the blepharoplasty procedure and describes results his eyelid surgery Toronto patients can achieve through it.
Eyelid Surgery in Toronto: Is It For Me?
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, removes excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelid surgery can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes – features that make you look older and more tired than you feel. While it can add an upper eyelid crease to Asian eyes, it will not erase evidence of your ethnic or racial heritage. The results of blepharoplasty typically last for years. The rejuvenating effect of eyelid surgery can be extended by receiving periodic chemical peel and microdermabrasion treatments.
Before and After Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)
Dr. Goldberg begins eyelid surgery by administering sedation and anesthesia. Blepharoplasty can be performed either under local anesthesia (the patient is numb yet awake) or under general anesthesia (the patient is numb and asleep). Dr. Goldberg conducts thorough consultations with all of his Toronto eyelid surgery patients in order to choose the most appropriate form of anesthesia.
After the patient is prepared, Dr. Goldberg makes several small incisions in the upper and/or lower eyelid creases. He then carefully removes excess skin, fatty and muscle tissue, and skillfully rearranges the eyelid tissues to create a subtly rejuvenated eye appearance. After eyelid surgery, patients experience some swelling and mild discomfort, which can be managed with oral medications. Most blepharoplasty Toronto patients fully recover within several weeks after their procedures.
Combining Blepharoplasty with Other Aesthetic Procedures
At the Goldberg Centre for Vision Correction & Cosmetic Surgery, patients are offered a range of highly effective facial rejuvenation and beautification procedures. Depending on the unique needs and desires of each patient, sometimes Dr. Goldberg recommends that they combine eyelid surgery with other procedures to achieve the best possible results. Some of the treatments that can be used to complement blepharoplasty include Restylane injections and light therapy. Some patients also pursue laser hair removal in Toronto to permanently remove bothersome facial hair.
