Is sagging skin above and below your eyelids making you appear more tired and older than you really are?

Upper and lower eyelid surgery can redefine the way you look and improve the way you feel about your appearance.

How Does Eyelid Surgery Work?

With eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, Dr. Berbari can sculpt the skin on the upper and lower eyelids to help you achieve a more rested, alert facial appearance.

Other Candidacy Factors

Dr. Berbari requires all plastic surgery patients to undergo a comprehensive evaluation before determining which enhancement procedure best fits their needs and fulfills their cosmetic desires. In addition, older patients with vision conditions should undergo an eye examination by a specialist to detect potential complications such as dry eye or excessive tears. Candidates for eyelid surgery at our surgical centre, serving Gatineau and Ottawa, most commonly include patients who:

Desire an improvement in their facial appearance

Have sagging skin in their upper or lower eyelids

Are in good health and have healthy tissue surrounding their eyes and brow

Are non-smokers

Do not have serious eye diseases or severe eye conditions

Have realistic goals for their plastic surgery outcome

Asian Blepharoplasty

Dr. Berbari does not perform blepharoplasty on patients who are of Asian decent. Because the treatment required to produce outstanding results for these patients is especially complex, Dr. Berbari will refer these patients to a surgeon with the required expertise.

Blepharoplasty vs. Brow Lift

If a sagging brow is contributing to the drooping of the upper eyelids, blepharoplasty alone may not produce the desired results. In this case, a brow lift may be necessary to effectively lift the upper eyelids and address droopy brows.

What to Expect during Blepharoplasty Treatment

Before performing surgery at our Gatineau plastic and cosmetic surgery clinic, Dr. Berbari will conduct a one-on-one consultation with you to determine the best way to achieve the results you desire.
The blepharoplasty procedure generally takes about one hour.
The blepharoplasty procedure generally takes about one hour.


On the day of your surgery, Dr. Berbari administers general anesthesia to maintain your comfort throughout the cosmetic surgery procedure.


During surgery, Dr. Berbari will make a small, discreet incision in your upper or lower eyelids to access the underlying fat and tissue.

Fat Removal or Redistribution

Next, Dr. Berbari will remove or redistribute fat in the lower or upper eyelids to create a smoother base for the overlying skin.

Tighten and Lift the Skin

Dr. Berbari may also tighten loose tissue and stretch the existing muscle during surgery to give the area around the eyes a lifted, firm appearance.

Remove Excess Skin

Finally, excess skin will be removed from the eyelids, producing results that are seamless and natural-looking.

Close Incisions

To complete this plastic surgical procedure, Dr. Berbari will close the incisions. After a brief recovery period at our clinic, you will be sent home to heal.

Risks and Complications

As in all plastic and cosmetic surgical procedures, there is a risk of:

The removal of too much skin may result in an ectropion (excessive stretching of the lower eyelid).

Bleeding and infection may occur.

In very rare cases, a hematoma (build-up of blood) behind the eye may cause blurred vision. This complication does not occur without symptoms, however.

A patient may complain of extreme pain and his or her vision may be clouded. While this is a medical emergency, the problem can be quickly dealt with by a trusted medical professional.

A couple of month ago Dr. Berbari performed a smart liposuction on my chin. The results were excellent. The procedure was pain free and the recovery was fast. I followed her recommendations pre and post operation and had hardly any bruising or swelling.  I am posting this now after seeing the final results a couple of months after the procedure and am very pleased. Thank you Dr. Berbari!
