Eyelid Surgery in Montreal

Our Montreal blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) effectively rejuvenates the appearance of eyes that look older and fatigued. Dr. Ali is one of the nation’s foremost experts in procedures that restore a refreshed and youthful look to the face and eyes.
At some point, many of us find that sufficient sleep, cosmetics, and eye creams aren’t enough to keep our eyes from looking tired and aged. Eyelid surgery can restore a more awake, friendly, and youthful appearance by improving the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. As an internationally respected plastic surgeon and the nation’s first triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ali performs some of the best blepharoplasty procedures that Montreal has to offer.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is designed to lift and rejuvenate the eyelids for a more refreshed appearance. This procedure can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both during the same surgery. In upper eyelid surgery, loose skin is lifted and tightened to improve the appearance of hooded, sagging eyelids and, in some cases, to widen the field of vision. In lower eyelid surgery, puffy bags or dark circles under the eyes are reduced or eliminated, leaving the under-eye area smoother and fuller. Ultimately, blepharoplasty surgery achieves a more rested, youthful look.

What can Eyelid Surgery

  • Reduces the drooping skin and puffiness of the eyelids
  • Improves the appearance of under-eye bags and orbital fat bulges
  • Lessens fine lines around the eyes
  • Removes excess eyelid skin that is impairing vision
  • Achieves a more rested, youthful, and attractive appearance

Dr. Ali Discusses Eyelid Surgery


Dr. Ali’s Surgical Technique for Blepharoplasty

Our Montreal eyelid surgery is performed under local anesthesia or general anesthesia (supervised by a board-certified anesthesiologist) at Dr. Ali’s private certified StationL facility. For upper eyelid surgery, Dr. Ali will make the incision within the fold of the eyelid. Through this incision, he will remove excess skin and fatty tissue, while also tightening the muscles and tissues.
For the lower eyelids, Dr. Ali will make an inconspicuous incision just below the lower lash line. Through this incision, he will remove excess fat or redistribute it to create a smoother, firmer appearance in this area. Alternatively, Dr. Ali may perform a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, using an incision made inside the lower eyelid. With this technique, no skin is removed, and the incision is closed with dissolving sutures.
Because incisions for eyelid surgery are placed within the natural creases and structures of the eyelid region, any scarring is typically well hidden. Depending on the specific technique used and whether or not both upper and lower eyelids are combined in one procedure will determine the procedure time, but typically the average is 1 to 2 hours.

Procedures Commonly
Combined with Eyelid Surgery

While eyelid surgery can be performed as a standalone procedure, it’s frequently combined with another surgery or multiple procedures. During your consultation with Dr. Ali, he will thoroughly assess the laxity of each facial area to recommend the procedure or combination that will best achieve a youthful and natural appearance. Even top-tier blepharoplasty results can be augmented with additional services. Commonly performed procedures alongside eyelid surgery include:
  • Facelift
  • Brow lift
  • Neck lift
  • Cell-enriched fat grafting
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Laser resurfacing

Recovery and Results

During the initial days following your blepharoplasty, it's recommended to rest with your head elevated. Dr. Ali may advise applying cold compresses to the surgical areas to minimize bruising and swelling, which typically diminishes within 7 to 10 days. You may feel a sensation of tightness around your eyes initially, which can be managed with oral medications. Temporary symptoms such as minimal pain, redness, tired eyes, swelling, bruising, sensitivity to light, blurred vision, and excess tearing or dryness may also occur.
These side effects are typically temporary and not harmful, and they will diminish quickly. If they cause discomfort, we suggest taking naps and avoiding activities that can dry your eyes, such as reading, using electronic devices, and watching TV.

Dr. Ali may prescribe eye drops to alleviate any burning or itching sensations. Contact lenses should not be worn for two weeks following the procedure. Stitches are typically removed within one week. Scarring is usually minimal after three weeks and becomes undetectable within six months. Most patients can return to work within 5 to 7 days and resume exercise within three weeks.

Candidates for Eyelid Surgery

If you're in the Montreal area and considering an eyelid lift, you might be an ideal candidate. Typically, good candidates for this procedure include individuals who:
  • Seek to enhance their sad, angry, or tired appearance when at rest
  • Experience excess skin, puffiness, or sagging of the eyelids
  • Do not have pre-existing eye conditions
  • Do not have thyroid issues
  • Are non-smokers
  • Hold realistic expectations regarding the outcomes of blepharoplasty
