Blepharoplasty for More Youthful Eyes

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity. While there is no fountain of youth to reverse time, certain plastic surgery procedures can help us achieve a more youthful, revitalized look. Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that trims away excess skin and fatty deposits from the upper and lower eyelids. It tightens the muscle and skin tissue around the eye area, giving the eyes a more rejuvenated appearance. In many patients, loose skin folds make them look older and may interfere with the ability to see clearly.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

The main benefit of blepharoplasty is that it eliminates drooping eyelids that may interfere with a person’s ability to see properly and make people look much older. Blepharoplasty restores a youthful appearance to the eyes and face, improving self-confidence and self-esteem.

How Is It Done?

During the procedure, your surgeon numbs the eyelid area and administers intravenous medication. They will cut along the fold of the eyelid to remove excess skin or fat, and then close the cut. After the procedure, you will spend time in the recovery room to be monitored for complications. You may temporarily experience blurred vision, light sensitivity, discomfort, and swelling around the eyes, however these symptoms disappear on their own within a few days. 

We recommend follow-up care for the delicate skin around your eyes for several months after the procedure. We cannot stress enough the importance of using sunblock on your eyelids, and wearing sunglasses to protect your eyes from sun damage.

Am I a candidate?

Eyelid surgery is an option for people in generally good health, with healthy facial tissues and muscles, who want to eliminate drooping eyelids and bags under their eyes. All candidates should have reasonable goals as to what plastic surgery can realistically accomplish.
