What is eyelid surgery?

Drooping eyelids, eyelid growths, and eyelids that turn in or turn out can cause discomfort and problems with vision. Lower eyelid problems, such as entropion (where the lower eyelid turns inward and your eyelashes rub against the cornea) and ectropion (where the lower eyelid turns outward and does not properly cover the lower eye, causing excess tearing or dry eyes), are typically caused by aging, and these symptoms can be alleviated with surgery. Ptosis, or the drooping of the upper eyelid, can both impair vision and make a person appear older and more tired. Our practice in Napa, CA, performs ptosis repair, ectropion/entropion repair, and eyelid growth removal to treat eyelid problems and get you back to seeing your best. Schedule a consultation with an ophthalmologist at Precision Surgery Center of Napa Valley if you are experiencing any of these common eyelid problems.

Am I A Good Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?

You may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery if you have:

  • Bags under you eyes
  • Loose eyelid skin and/or wrinkles on the upper eyelid
  • Difficulty seeing due to hanging skin on the upper eyelid
  • Discomfort due to inward eyelids causing the lashes to hit the cornea
  • Eyelid growths
  • Unhappiness with your facial appearance

As long as you are a healthy adult with one or more of these issues, you could qualify for this procedure. For more information on your candidacy for a lid lift in Napa, CA, contact Precision Surgery Center of Napa Valley.

What Are the Benefits of Eyelid Surgery?

If you require ectropion surgery, entropion surgery, or ptosis repair, these surgeries can help preserve your ocular health and restore obstructed vision. Additional benefits of eyelid surgery include:

  • Improved physical appearance of the eye
  • Reduction in irritation, pain, and watery eyes
  • Improved height of the eyelids when sagging (eyelid turned out) occurs
  • Decrease in eyelashes rubbing on the eye (when the eyelid is turned in)
  • Results are maintained for years after surgery
  • You will likely look younger after the surgery

What to expect with eyelid surgery

Eyelid correction in Napa, CA, is performed at Precision Surgery Center of Napa Valley as an outpatient procedure done with a local anesthetic that is both injected into your eyelid and administered as eye drops directly to your eye. Most eyelid surgeries take between 30 – 60 minutes. Since the area around the eyelids will be swollen following the surgery, you will need to prepare a ride home and clear at least 24 hours from your schedule in order for you to rest and recover. Your ophthalmologist will discuss your detailed aftercare plan with you and closely monitor your healing progress post-surgery.
