A blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure designed to correct sagging skin, excess fatty deposits, and wrinkles of the upper and lower eyelids. It is commonly referred to as an eyelid lift as it can help reduce tired-looking eyes and give you a more youthful appearance.

What does it do?

The goal of blepharoplasty surgery is to remove excess skin and fat while restoring a more youthful, rested appearance to the eyes. A blepharoplasty can improve vision in older patients whose eyelids have begun to droop and obstruct their field of view. It can also minimize wrinkles around the eyes and reduce puffiness or bags beneath them.
Upper blepharoplasty is a procedure that removes or repositions the excess skin and fat of the upper eyelids. Lower blepharoplasty is a similar procedure that corrects sagging lower eyelids, reduces puffiness, and can also remove wrinkles.

  • Where is it performed?

    If you're interested in upper eyelid blepharoplasty, this procedure can be conveniently performed by your plastic surgeon in the comfort of our office procedure room under local anesthesia. The entire process usually takes typically less than an hour for both of the upper lids and afterward, some minor swelling and bruising may occur - but should diminish shortly thereafter. Alternatively, lower blepharoplasty often needs general anesthetic administered at a surgery center instead of the doctor's office.

  • Candidates

    Generally speaking, anyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their eyes, has excess skin or puffiness around their eyes or has difficulty seeing due to drooping eyelids may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. If you are considering blepharoplasty, it is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine whether the procedure is right for you and what kind of results you can expect.
