Procedure

Blepharoplasty & Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), or an eyelid lift, can be performed to counteract the natural effects of aging providing patients with a refreshed, youthful appearance.

An Overview: Blepharoplasty & Eyelid Surgery

At a Glance:

  • Suitable for people of all ages
  • May be cosmetic or reconstructive in nature
  • Involves skin repositioning or removal 
  • Outpatient procedure that takes 15-45 minutes per eyelid

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be either a cosmetic procedure or a functional/reconstructive procedure. When eyelid malpositioning or certain types of drooping affect vision, reconstructive surgery is usually the only possible way to correct the problem.

On the cosmetic side, eyelids can begin to droop at an earlier age in some people than in others, making a person appear tired all the time. Blepharoplasty is a simple, commonly performed eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) that restores a youthful appearance to the eyes and entire face.

The right time for eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is when you need it. You can be 20 or 90 years old even for cosmetic procedures.

During the procedure, the surgeon repositions and/or removes existing skin and fat deposits to address excess skin and bags. It takes between 15 and 45 minutes per eyelid. Patients can choose a combination of local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia for the procedure. These kinds of surgeries are performed with a delicate knife and suture approach all around the world; the key is surgeon experience and specialization.
