Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure that can typically be completed in one to two hours. It is a highly personalized form of cosmetic surgery designed to produce natural-looking results.
To ensure your comfort during surgery, blepharoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, our surgeon will create tiny, discreet incisions around the upper or lower eyelids, remove excess fat deposits and skin, and tighten the remaining skin, giving you smoother, more youthful contours around the eyes. In most cases, patients can go home to begin their recovery immediately after the procedure.
Eyelid surgery is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures, and it is increasing in popularity. This is partly because there are various types of eyelid surgery that address a wide range of needs. Upper eyelid surgery, for example, is highly effective in correcting the “hooding” and puffiness of the upper eyelid and inner corner of the eyelid. Upper eyelid surgery restores a more youthful, alert appearance, and can also be used to enhance the upper eyelid crease. Lower eyelid surgery targets the bulging fat of lower eye bags. There is also a type of eyelid surgery called transconjunctival blepharoplasty that is suitable for people with more elastic skin. In this procedure, no skin is removed, just fat.
