Eyelid Surgery

Upper and lower blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to address cosmetic concerns and functional issues related to the eyelids. The procedure focuses on rejuvenating the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both, depending on the patient’s needs and goals.

Blepharoplasty Surgery

Eyelid surgery offers a range of benefits for individuals seeking to address cosmetic concerns and functional issues related to their eyelids. Here are some key advantages:

Reduction of Puffiness and Sagging:

Eyelid surgery effectively removes excess skin, fat, and muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. This helps eliminate puffiness, sagging, and drooping, which can make the eyes appear tired, aged, or sad. By restoring a more youthful and alert appearance to the eyes, eyelid surgery enhances overall facial aesthetics.

Elimination of Under-Eye Bags and Dark Circles:

Lower eyelid surgery specifically targets under-eye bags and dark circles. By removing or repositioning excess fat and tightening the skin, the procedure can significantly reduce the appearance of puffiness and discoloration, leading to a more rejuvenated and refreshed look.

Improved Eye Contour:

The removal or repositioning of fat and skin during eyelid surgery helps create a smoother and more defined eye contour. This can make the eyes appear brighter, more open, and more symmetrical. Eyelid surgery can also address asymmetry between the eyelids, improving overall facial harmony.

Boost in Self-Confidence:

One of the significant benefits of eyelid surgery is the improvement in self-confidence it can bring. By rejuvenating the appearance of the eyes, individuals often experience a boost in self-esteem and feel more comfortable and satisfied with their overall facial aesthetics.

Long-Lasting Results:

Eyelid surgery provides long-lasting results. While the natural aging process will continue, the effects of eyelid surgery typically endure for many years. The procedure can significantly rejuvenate the eye area enhancing the overall youthful appearance.

Eyelid surgery 

Eyelid surgery, is typically performed as an outpatient procedure. The specific techniques used may vary depending on the individual’s needs, desired outcomes, and the surgeon’s expertise. However, the general steps involved in eyelid surgery are as follows:

Eyelid Surgery Procedure

We administer either local anesthesia combined with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the procedure.



The surgeon carefully makes incisions along the natural creases of the eyelids. For upper eyelid surgery, the incision is typically made in the fold of the upper eyelid, allowing the surgeon to remove excess skin, muscle, and fat. For lower eyelid surgery, the incision is either made just below the lower lash line or inside the lower eyelid (transconjunctival approach), depending on the specific concerns addressed.


Tissue removal and repositioning:

We may remove excess fat deposits or reposition them to reduce under-eye bags and puffiness. The surgeon may also trim or reposition excess skin and tighten the underlying muscles and tissues to create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.


Incision closure:

The incisions are meticulously closed using sutures, skin adhesives, or surgical tape. The goal is to minimize scarring and ensure proper healing.

Recovery and post-operative care:

After the surgery, we monitor the patient in a recovery area before we allow you to go home. We will provide specific post-operative instructions. These include guidelines for managing swelling, bruising, and discomfort. The surgeon may prescribe pain medication, recommend the use of cold compresses, and advise on proper eye care and activities to avoid during the healing process.


It is important to note that the exact techniques used in eyelid surgery can vary depending on the individual’s unique anatomy and desired outcomes. To achieve the best results, it is crucial to consult with a skilled and experienced plastic surgeon who can tailor the procedure to your specific needs and provide comprehensive pre- and post-operative care.
