What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that can refresh and rejuvenate the eye area for cosmetic and functional purposes. At Lickstein Plastic Surgery in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David Lickstein, is highly experienced in eyelid surgery.

Candidates for eyelid surgery often feel they have a tired appearance, regardless of how rested they may be. Aging can cause the delicate skin around the eyes to lose elasticity, which can give a sagging look to the eyes. The fat in the eye area can also become more prominent, creating a puffiness or heaviness in the eyes. Blepharoplasty lifts and smooths the eye area for an invigorated, younger-looking appearance.

Blepharoplasty FAQs

Will I Have Scars From blepharoplasty?
Dr. Lickstein is highly experienced in minimizing scarring. The blepharoplasty incision is typically placed in your natural eyelid crease so that there is no noticeable scar. If a lower-lid incision is needed, it can usually be made close to the lower lash line.
What Should I Expect From Blepharoplasty Recovery?
Blepharoplasty patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for several days after surgery. Elevation of the head, cold compresses, and pain medication can relieve these symptoms. Patients typically resume regular activities 10 to 14 days after surgery.
What Results Can I Expect From My Eyelid Surgery?
After blepharoplasty, immediate results may be difficult to see due to typical post-surgical swelling. Results will begin to be visible several weeks after surgery, once swelling subsides and incisions begin to heal. Blepharoplasty patients can expect to look refreshed and rejuvenated, with tighter skin around the eyes.
How Long Will My Blepharoplasty Results Last?
Blepharoplasty results are long-lasting, although the normal aging process will continue after surgery. You can improve the longevity of your results by following all post-operative instructions, taking care of your skin, and protecting your eyes from the sun.
