Creating Targeted Results with Eyelid Surgery

A blepharoplasty can be performed on the lower or upper eyelids, or both, to address concerns including:

  • Eyelids that look puffy due to excess fat
  • Eyelids that sag with loose skin
  • The appearance of bags or hollows beneath the eyes
  • Excess skin on the upper eyelids that impairs vision

Eyelid surgery removes surplus skin and fatty deposits for a smooth look and, in many cases, improved vision.

Eyelid surgery and brow lifts

A blepharoplasty is often conducted with a brow lift, which removes loose skin and excess fat that gathers in the forehead to create a drooping brow.

Eyelid surgery can also be performed as a complement to a brow lift for those with sagging skin or fatty deposits in the upper eyelids. Whether performed independently or together, blepharoplasties and brow lifts can rejuvenate the area around your eyes and brow while also improving your field of vision.

Am I the ideal candidate?

Good candidates for blepharoplasty typically have drooping eyelids that make them look tired or angry. For those with excess eyelid laxity, the surgery can help to improve vision by increasing the amount of light that enters the eye. If you are considering blepharoplasty, it is important to consult with one of our experienced plastic surgeons who can assess your individual needs and determine whether you are a good candidate for the procedure.

Your Blepharoplasty Surgical Experience

The surgical approach for blepharoplasty differs depending on the eyelid affected (upper or lower) and the specific condition being addressed. In most cases, tiny incisions are made, so residual scars are concealed within the folds of the eyelids or eyelash lines.

Excess skin and fat are removed. The underlying musculature may be tightened, and the remaining skin and fat are repositioned for a symmetrical, youthful, refreshed look.

Enjoying Your Long-Lasting Results

The results of your blepharoplasty will become more evident as you heal and the lingering redness, swelling, and bruising subside. Most patients see their desired results within several weeks, as the skin tone and fine lines will continue to resolve.

With proper care—including sun protection—the effects of eyelid surgery are long-lasting. That said, blepharoplasty doesn’t stop the aging process. Over time, droopy eyelids may return, and some patients choose a revision procedure years later to restore their appearance.

Will my insurance cover my blepharoplasty?

In general, insurance will only cover blepharoplasty if it is deemed medically necessary. For example, if the individual has drooping eyelids that are causing vision problems, insurance may cover the procedure. However, if the individual simply wants cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance, insurance is unlikely to provide coverage. If you are considering blepharoplasty, check with your insurance provider to determine whether their procedure will be covered.

Resting and Recovering After Your Surgery

Your plastic surgeon will review your recovery guidelines with you in detail during your consultation, including instructions on how to care for your eyes as you heal. Patients may experience temporary blurred vision, watery eyes, and light sensitivity following surgery.
