Toronto Cosmetic Surgery: Are Your Eyes Changing Your Facial Appearance?
Many people consider their eyes to be their best physical asset. After all, they are the window to the soul.
However, as we age, our eyelids may become puffy or the delicate skin may form wrinkles that make us appear older than we are. If you feel like your eyes are changing your appearance in a negative way, we invite you to explore your options for facial cosmetic surgery in Toronto.
Facial Plastic Surgery Procedures
Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is one of the most popular facial plastic surgery procedures in the world today. The goal of the procedure is to correct wrinkles, reduce puffiness, and lift heavy lids to restore a more youthful appearance.
You may never have considered eyelid surgery, but there are some clues that can help determine if you stand to benefit from an eye lift.
If you feel that you often look tired even when you are well rested, that may be an indicator that you qualify for an eyelid surgery. When people’s faces are tired-looking, it may be due to droopy eyelids, which can easily be corrected with blepharoplasty.
Although aging is a natural part of life, everyone ages differently. When a person’s eye area appears much older than it should, everyone who looks at them immediately sees this effect. Since an eyelid lift specifically targets these concerns through opening up the eye area, it results in a rested and rejuvenated appearance.
An eyelid lift can help smooth wrinkles around the eyes, reduce puffy bags, and tighten loose, excess skin above and below the eyes.

Treating Patients for Cosmetic Concerns
Well-known as one of the top Toronto facial cosmetic surgery specialists, Dr. Torgerson has years of experience treating patients for various cosmetic concerns. At his state-of-the-art clinic conveniently located in downtown Toronto, Dr. Torgerson routinely performs blepharoplasty procedures, not only for aesthetic concerns, but also to address functional concerns such as impaired vision resulting from drooping eyelids.Depending on the extent of the work that patients desire, they can opt for a full eyelid lift, which addresses the upper and lower eyelids, or target either the upper or lower lid.
During the procedure, tiny incisions are made either just inside the eyelid or at the lashline to remove skin from around the eyelid. A small amount of fat can be removed or repositioned to change the contours of the eyelid area. When completely healed, incisions will be hidden in a natural crease or not visible at all.
Following the procedure, people usually take around a week off from work, after which most of the swelling and bruising has resolved.
