The Surgeon Who
Specializes in Bladeless.

For patients with droopy eyelids, Dr. Lewis performs “Bladeless Blepharoplasty” which is a surgical technique that does not use a scalpel to remove the excess eyelid skin. Dr. Lewis has performed thousands of bladeless blepharoplasty surgeries to help give patients the results they are looking for without the effects typically associated with eyelid surgery.

Understanding Blepharoplasty.

Every year, about one hundred thousand men and women choose eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, to either improve their vision or the way they look, or both. If you are experiencing droopy lids, schedule your evaluation today.

Age, sun exposure and hereditary factors all contribute to wrinkles, deep lines and puffiness around the eyes and droopy eyelids. This can cause us to look permanently fatigued and older than we really are. These changes in appearance can cause visual impairment and sometimes emotional distress. Aging eyelids can be corrected with either traditional or bladeless blepharoplasty. It improves side vision and other symptoms.

Removal of the excess skin in either the upper or lower eyelids may also improve appearance. From a visual standpoint, by lifting the droopy skin (“shade”) from their eyelids, people notice “immediate” improvement in their superior and peripheral visual field and feel the “world looks brighter.” From a cosmetic standpoint, eyelid surgery is probably the most effective way to improve one’s appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is blepharoplasty surgery for me?

Over time, many people develop excess eyelid skin. Eyelid skin is the thinnest skin of the body, so it tends to stretch. In the upper eyelid, this stretched skin may limit your side vision. The excess skin can be removed surgically by a procedure called blepharoplasty. Talk with Dr. Lewis to see if blepharoplasty is right for you.

What are the advantages of bladeless?

Aside from the traditional blepharoplasty surgical technique, which involves a scalpel, Dr. Lewis also performs the same procedure using a bladeless technique which leaves much less bruising and swelling after surgery. The incision is barely visible. Dr. Lewis will make the decision in your consultation if you are a good candidate for the bladeless blepharoplasty.

Will I have noticeable scarring from the surgery?

An incision is made in the crease of the upper lid. Once healed, it is not noticeable when the eye is open. On the lower lid, the incision is made along the lash line, and is hidden by lashes when healed.

How long does the bladeless procedure take?

Fortunately, the surgery is quite simple. The process typically takes 20 minutes or less and is done with simple local anesthesia and I.V. sedation. After the surgery is done, you are free to return home the same day. For most people, the whole process from check in, surgery, and checking out takes only a couple of hours!

What kind of results should I expect?

Dr. Lewis’s primary goal is to restore your full field of vision; to “raise the curtain” that has been progressively dropping over the years and gradually blocking your vision. His secondary goal is to improve your appearance, so you don’t look tired, worn-out or sleepy. During your appointment, Dr. Lewis will perform an eye examination and make recommendations. If you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty, you may talk with a Quigley Eye Specialists surgical counselor about what to expect before, during and after your surgery.
