Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

  • Eyelid aging can cause unwanted changes in expression, causing us to look permanently fatigued and older than we really are. In some cases, redundant upper lid skin can even contribute to visual impairment. An upper eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, can restore a more youthful appearance to your eyes.
  • In traditional upper lid blepharoplasty, an incision is made in the crease of the upper lid and excess skin, fat, and muscle is removed. Once healed, the incision is hidden when the eye is open and often barely noticeable when the eye is closed.
  • Blepharoplasty may be performed alone or in combination with other operations, most frequently a brow lift.  Too much skin should not be removed if what is really needed is a brow lift in addition or instead.  Post operative problems may include prolonged swelling, asymmetry, and eye irritation.
  • Sutures will be removed in 4-7 days. Swelling and bruising will persist for about 10 days, but makeup can help conceal this. You may expect to resume normal activity rapidly and start enjoying your new look within approximately 10-14 days.
