Eyelid Surgery, or Blepharoplasty, can eliminate bags that lie underneath the eyes as well as turn back the clock for the patient offering a more youthful appearance in the eyes and overall face. When a person ages, he/she develops natural wrinkles that can surround the eye and cause problems over time. These problems can easily be eliminated with an eyelid surgery. Eyelid surgery procedures can also be combined with other surgeries to provide the most effective results to suit your individual needs.
Reasons for considering an Eyelid Surgery
- The sagging bags under the eyes.
- Crows feet or excessive wrinkles around the eyes.
- The tired look, from aging and other factors.
How is the surgery performed?
By making incisions in the small grooves near the eyes, the loose skin is tightened from the upper eyelid and the excess fatty deposits are removed. The lower eyelids normally have to undergo a little bit more work to eliminate the dark circles and remove the bulges in skin.
In some instances, the doctors can choose to do the lower eyelid surgery in two different ways. One way is to make incisions and remove the fatty deposits. Another method to performing lower eyelid surgery is to use laser technology.

What happens after surgery? What is the recovery process?
This surgery is frequently performed under local anesthesia and requires little down time and no bandages or compression wraps during healing.
If the patient is combining other procedures with eyelid surgery, recovery time may be longer and anesthesia may be required.
If eyelid surgery is done under local anesthesia, over the counter pain relievers are usually sufficient. Patients should follow the directions of the doctor to avoid any post-operative problems. Using the most modern techniques and surgical skill, this amazing procedure can truly return your appearance to a more youthful and refreshed look. The healing process for eyelid surgery is typically minor but the long term benefits are major!
