Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty is surgery of the eyelid. Excess skin or fat is taken out and the eyelid is reconstructed to be smoother, tighter, and have a more pleasing shape. Blepharoplasties are cosmetic as well as practical. We often perform blepharoplasties on patients whose eyelids droop in a way that interferes with their vision. Cosmetically, many people have this surgery to look younger, less tired, and happier. It is a small surgery that makes a big difference.
On the lower eyelids, it improves under eye bags (puffiness), and reduces wrinkling of the skin under the eye area.
The surgery usually takes between one and three hours. Patients often have swelling and bruising that lasts up to two weeks, and final results become apparent after several months. We keep in touch with you from the time you leave the surgery until you come in for your final follow up visit. We compare your before and after pictures, and complete your care. This surgery is one of our most popular procedures, and patients are very happy with their results.
