Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

The eyelid lift, also known as blepharoplasty, involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids, resulting in a more youthful, alert and rested appearance for the patient. Before and after eyelid lift photos

Upper eyelid surgery is done by making an incision in the crease of the eyelid, thereby hiding the scar. The excess skin and fat is removed and the incision is closed with sutures. Lower eyelid fat is removed from an incision inside the eyelid, and if skin needs to be removed, a small incision is made just below the eyelashes. Wrinkles around the eyelids can be treated with simultaneous laser resurfacing or a chemical peel.

This procedure takes approximately 45 minutes for the upper or lower eyelids and about one and a quarter hour for both upper and lower lids. The surgery is performed in the office or surgery center under local anesthesia, or sometimes with intravenous sedation. Downtime is usually 7 days, during which there is mild swelling. Pain is minimal.
