Eyelid Surgery: Why Experience Matters

Eyelid Surgery: Why Experience Matters

The eyes are the focal point of the face and play a key role in the way we come across to others. When drooping eyelids cause you to appear tired or worn, an expertly performed eyelid surgery can open up the face and create a more awake and youthful look.

I have dedicated years of training in oculoplastic surgery to help eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) patients in Toronto look and feel their best while knowing they’re receiving the highest quality of care.

Choosing a surgeon for your eyelid surgery is a major decision, and selecting the right surgeon can make all the difference in your experience. Here are some factors to consider during your search.

How Eyelid Surgery Helps

The eyes play a huge role in the way you express yourself and can have a significant effect on how others perceive you. Drooping or puffy eyelids can create a tired look—even when you’re wide awake. Sometimes caused by age and sometimes by genetics, these traits may inhibit you from looking and feeling like your best, most youthful self. Luckily, even the slightest adjustments can dramatically change the look of your face. Eyelid surgery creates a brighter and more rested look through precise adjustments of the skin and fat surrounding the eyes.

An Experienced Approach

I’m happy to provide my patients with an exceptional experience as a result of my dedicated training. As 1 of only 2 Canadian plastic surgeons formally trained and certified in oculoplastic surgery, I have distinguished my practice as a standout choice for eyelid surgery patients.

I specialize in both Western and Asian eyelid surgery. I adjust my surgical techniques to specifically serve each patient’s distinct features. For Asian patients, I often perform either incisional double eyelid surgery or suture method double eyelid surgery—depending on the patient’s desired results and recovery expectations.

The Importance of Follow-Up

Recovery and follow-up care are essential parts of the healing process and can help shape exceptional long-term results. Part of my commitment to providing quality care is giving patients detailed follow-up instructions to make sure their recuperation goes smoothly and effectively.
