Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Surgery

When we regard each other, we often look first at each other’s eyes. Lax or excess skin and protruding fat, along with loss of fat in other areas, causes aging eyes to look tired, old, and sometimes even angry. Correction of the eyelids can make a huge difference in one’s facial appearance that often makes a more profound difference than almost any other facial cosmetic procedure.

Blepharoplasty removes or repositions excess fat and skin from the upper and lower eyelid area. The goal of the procedure is to eliminate puffiness and drooping around the eyelid that produces an aged, tired appearance. When that is accomplished, patients tend to look more youthful and energetic.

During the procedure, an incision is made within the upper eyelid crease or close to the lower lashes so visible scarring is minimized. The surgery can be performed under sedation in the office or general anesthesia in an operating room. The procedure usually takes one to two hours to perform (if upper and lower eyelids are being done, the procedure may take longer). Most patients can resume normal activities in one week or less following surgery, however, strenuous exercise will need to be avoided for about one month.
