Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fatty tissue that surrounds the eyes. With age, tissues that were once firm begin to protrude, creating bags. In some cases, this excess skin may even cause eyelashes to turn inward, irritating the eye, and in certain instances, affecting vision.

We can help restore comfort and natural beauty using blepharoplasty to treat:

  • Loose skin hanging from the upper eyes
  • Puffy appearance on upper and lower lid that make eyes appear tired
  • Wrinkles on lower and upper eyelid

What can I expect during and after surgery?

Blepharoplasty is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. Upper and lower incision lines are marked along the natural skin folds of the eyelids. This makes the marks virtually unnoticeable once healed.

After surgery, rest and head elevation are recommended. Cold compresses can be applied to reduce any swelling and bruising which may occur in the days following. The area around the eye will need to remain clean while it heals. If fine sutures were used, they will either dissolve on their own or will need to be removed a few days after surgery.

Temporary blurred vision, light sensitivity, double vision, puffy numb eyelids, and excessive tearing are possible side effects.
