Blepharoplasty, often called eyelid surgery, can help women and men from Mississauga, Oakville, Brampton, and other nearby cities, improve their appearance by restoring a youthful contour to the eyes. The procedure is designed to correct drooping upper eyelids and puffy bags below the eyes by removing excess fat, skin, and muscle. Upper eyelid surgery may be covered by OHIP if the eyelids droop so much that they interfere with vision. Dr. Michael J. Weinberg is committed to helping you achieve beautiful and natural-looking results.

In Toronto and Mississauga, eyelid surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of eyelid sagging. The procedure can take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours and is usually performed at the clinic, where women and men can enjoy the comfort and convenience of a private facility. For those who wish to have their surgery in hospital it can be arranged at Trillium Health Centre. As with all surgical procedures, there are possible complications that can occur with eyelid surgery. Potential complications specific to your surgery will be discussed in detail at your consultation. For a discussion of general risks of surgery, review Dr. Weinberg's Your First Visit page.

Blepharoplasty Cost & Related Procedures
The cost of your eyelid surgery will depend on whether it is covered by OHIP, and also if it is combined with other facial cosmetic procedures. Procedures that blepharoplasty can be performed with include a forehead lift, facelift, as well as other non-surgical procedures that can enhance the appearance of the eyes, like injectable fillers for the under eye area and Latisse.
After Your Procedure
There may be some degree of temporary dryness, burning and itching of eyes, and tightness of the lids after your eyelid surgery in Mississauga. Excessive tearing and sensitivity to light for the first few weeks is possible, and although there may be some difficulty in closing the eyes completely, it is rarely permanent.
Women and men typically return back to work within 7 to 10 days following the procedure. Contact lenses may be worn after 2 weeks or more. Generally, patients are able to resume strenuous activities after 3 weeks, and bruising and swelling are typically minimized significantly during this time. The results from eyelid surgery usually last several years and can be permanent.
