What Is Blepharoplasty?

Candidates for eyelid surgery often feel they have a tired appearance, regardless of how rested they may be. With aging, the muscles and skin around the eye stretches and sags. Fat can begin to be visible, creating the tired appearance.Eyelid surgery, also known as “blepharoplasty,” is a procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. Loose skin that causes fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging is removed, and fat deposits that cause puffiness and bags are removed or repositioned. The eyes attain a refreshed and invigorated appearance.

Blepharoplasty FAQs

Where are the incisions placed for blepharoplasty?
The incision for upper eyelid surgery is placed within the natural crease of the eyelid so that no scar will be noticeable once it heals. The incision for lower eyelid surgery may be inconspicuously placed just below the lashes to remove excess skin, or an incision hidden within the lower lid may be used to remove and reposition tissue.
When can I return to work and normal activities after the procedure?
Most patients are able to resume work and normal activities about ten days after eyelid surgery. Some swelling and bruising may persist for a couple of weeks, but cold compresses will help reduce these side effects.
How soon will I see the results of my eyelid surgery?
Results from blepharoplasty may be obscured at first due to swelling and bruising, but smooth, more youthful eyelids are generally visible within a few weeks after surgery. Incision lines will continue to improve over time and may take up to a year to fully refine.
How long will the results of blepharoplasty last?
Results from eyelid surgery will be long-lasting as long as the patient maintains a healthy skincare regimen and protects the area from the sun. The skin and tissues around the eyes will continue to age naturally.
