Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that is commonly known as eyelid surgery. It is used to improve the appearance of the eyelids or to correct functional problems with the eyelids, such as sagging or drooping that can interfere with vision. During the procedure, excess skin, muscle, and fat may be removed or repositioned to create a smoother, more youthful appearance or to improve functionality.

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Blepharoplasty is usually performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, although general anesthesia may be used for more complex cases. Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the surgery, but most patients can return to work and other normal activities within a week or two after the procedure.

What Are the Benefits of Blepharoplasty?

The eyes are your most expressive feature, and when drooping, sagging, puffy skin gets in the way, it can make you look older, angry, or more tired than you are. Blepharoplasty is a transformative procedure that offers stunning results, including:

  • Smooth under eyes for a more rested appearance
  • Eliminated upper eyelid sagging, which opens the eyes
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
  • Increased visibility through tightening the skin
  • A more alert, revitalized appearance
  • Improved dark circles and deep tear troughs

What Are My Blepharoplasty Options?

Patients who desire enhancement of both eyelids can enjoy a brighter, more open appearance to the eyes, with eliminated sagging, puffy skin. Additionally, blepharoplasty is a fantastic addition to a complete face rejuvenation, as Dr. Lee can combine this procedure with another facial surgery such as:

Brow Lift

A brow lift to correct deep forehead creases and a sagging brow.

Facelift Surgery

Facelift surgery to rejuvenate facial contours and remove excess, loose skin around the mid-face.

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting to restore lost volume throughout the face, including the lips, cheeks, and chin, for more balanced and youthful proportions.

How Is Blepharoplasty Performed?

Dr. Lee will create a specialized surgical plan that best addresses your needs and concerns. The procedure will depend on whether you have treated the upper, lower, or both eyelids.

Blepharoplasty is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia for maximum patient comfort.

If you are having surgery on both eyelids, Dr. Lee will usually start with the upper eyelid. He will make an incision along the natural fold of your upper eyelid in order to remove excess muscle and fat beneath the skin.

For the lower eyelid, Dr. Lee will make an incision just below the lashes in your eye’s natural crease or inside the lower eyelid. Excess fat, muscle, and sagging skin are then removed to reduce the appearance of bags under the eyes.

How Long Is Blepharoplasty Recovery?

Recovery from blepharoplasty will differ from patient to patient. It also depends on the extent of revision and if you have the procedure on one or both eyelids.

Swelling and bruising will vary between patients, but discoloration and discomfort should subside within the first week of recovery. For the first week, you must avoid activities that dry the eyes, including using the computer or watching television. Be sure to rest your eyes as much as possible for the first few weeks; patients may benefit from wearing sunglasses to avoid light sensitivity and dryness from wind exposure.

When Will I See My Blepharoplasty Results?

Immediately following your blepharoplasty procedure, your eyes may be swollen and slightly bruised. Once this begins to subside, you will see a marked improvement to the eyes: they will be smooth, with no sagging or drooping eyelids, the puffiness will be significantly reduced, and the eyes will be noticeably brighter, more open, and alert.

  • Will I have scars after blepharoplasty?

    Blepharoplasty is a highly nuanced and precise procedure during which Dr. Lee will employ meticulous incision placement and delicate techniques to avoid unnecessary scarring. The natural folds of the eyelids will conceal any scars.

  • How long does the blepharoplasty procedure take?

    Depending on the specific surgical plan and if you have blepharoplasty of the upper, lower, or both eyelids, your procedure may last anywhere from one to three hours.

  • What is the difference between blepharoplasty and Asian eyelid surgery (Asian blepharoplasty)?

    Asian blepharoplasty, or Asian double-fold eyelid surgery, provides some of the same benefits as eyelid surgery, but this procedure is more specifically tailored to the ethnic anatomical differences of Asian patients. During this procedure, Dr. Lee can accentuate the natural eyelid crease to create a more defined eyelid for Asian patients who desire to open the lid for a brighter, more alert appearance. Dr. Lee works to maintain the natural ethnic diversity of his patients while giving them the desired results.
