Blepharoplasty

What is cosmetic eyelid surgery?

 Also  known  as  blepharoplasty,  eyelid  surgery improves  the  appearance  of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It gives a rejuvenated  appearance  to  the  surrounding  area  of  your eyes, making you   look  more  rested and alert.

Treatable conditions:

  • Upper eyelid surgery can remove excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids.

  • Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision, can be treated by eyelid lift surgery.

  • Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can remove excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.

  • Bags under the eyes can be corrected by blepharoplasty.

  • Lower eyelid surgery can correct droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris (colored portion of the eye).

​Is it right for me?

A blepharoplasty procedure is usually performed on adult men and women who have healthy facial tissue and muscles and have realistic goals for improvement of the upper and/or lower eyelids and surrounding area.

Recovery:

After your procedure is completed, lubricating ointment and cold compresses may be applied, and in some cases your eyes may be loosely covered with gauze.Specific instructions you may receive during your eyelid surgery recovery:How to care for your eyes, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your overall health, and when to follow-up with your plastic surgeon.

Initial healing may include some post eyelid surgery swelling, bruising, irritation or dry eyes and discomfort that can be controlled with medication, cold compresses and ointment. Irritation at the incision sites also is possible.
