Blepharoplasty Overview

Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that can help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin around the eyes. The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids while tightening surrounding muscles and tissues. Blepharoplasty is also used to improve vision in cases where vision is obstructed by excess skin and fat, as well as for aesthetic reasons. After the procedure, patients can expect to have a more youthful, refreshed look around the eyes. The results of blepharoplasty are usually long-lasting but may vary from patient to patient.

Upper Blepharoplasty

An upper blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift, is a cosmetic procedure used to reduce the appearance of sagging skin in the upper eyelids. The procedure involves removing excess skin and fatty tissue from around the eyes in order to create a more youthful and refreshed look. It can also improve vision by removing any drooping skin that may be blocking the upper field of vision.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift or eye bag removal, is a surgical procedure designed to improve the appearance of the lower eyelids. The procedure involves removing excess skin and fat from the area around the eyes to reduce puffiness and make them look more youthful. In addition, lower blepharoplasty can correct deformities such as uneven folds and wrinkles in the lower eyelid area which can have a negative impact on one's appearance.

What does a Blepharoplasty procedure entail?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. During the surgery, excess skin and fat are removed from the area around the eyes. In some cases, muscles and tissues may also be tightened to create a more youthful appearance. The incisions for blepharoplasty are typically made within the natural creases of the eyelids. The entire procedure may take anywhere from one to two hours, depending on the extent of work being done.

What is the recovery for a Blepharoplasty?

Following a blepharoplasty procedure, patients can expect to experience minor swelling and bruising around the eyes, which should diminish after a few days. It typically takes several weeks for the final results of blepharoplasty to be visible. Additionally, patients should avoid strenuous activities and direct sunlight for several days following the procedure in order to aid in healing. With proper care and aftercare instructions followed, blepharoplasty can help achieve a refreshed appearance around the eyes.

Am I a good candidate for a Blepharoplasty procedure?

A Blepharoplasty procedure is suitable for individuals who would like to improve the appearance of their eyes, either cosmetically or functionally. Generally, good candidates for this procedure are those in good health with realistic expectations about the results. Individuals may consider a Blepharoplasty if they have droopy eyelids, excess skin on the upper eyelids that impairs vision, puffy bags under the eyes, or wrinkles around their lower eyelids and corners of their eyes. It is important to note that a Blepharoplasty will not resolve any underlying health issues such as dry eye, allergies or dermatitis.
