Common questions about blepharophlasty treatment
What is a blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, combats wrinkles, sagging skin, puffiness, and fine lines around the eyes to reduce the signs of aging. Patients also seek this procedure when drooping eyelids impact their quality of life, such as narrowing their vision.
How does the procedure work?
This procedure resolves the existing aging effects of the eye area and is often performed in coordination with other treatments, such as a facelift. At your blepharoplasty consultation, your surgeon will evaluate your condition and design a personalized treatment plan that addresses your needs.
Your doctor will administer IV sedation or general anesthesia during your blepharoplasty procedure. Next, your surgeon will make very fine incisions around the eyelid to remove excess fat and skin and lift the eye area. Then they will place skin back over the newly rejuvenated area. Once surgical sites are sutured, you will be taken into recovery.
How long does recovery take?
We will provide you with detailed pre- and post-operative instructions which you should follow closely and carefully. Many patients resume normal activities within 7 to 10 days after surgery.
