What Blepharoplasty Does
What is Blepharoplasty?
A blepharoplasty, more commonly known as an eyelid lift, can help reduce the signs of aging around the eyes. In some cases, patients will undergo a blepharoplasty in conjunction with another treatment, such as a brow lift, to ensure optimal results. During an eyelid lift, your doctor can get rid of bags under the eyes, correct sagging eyelids, and remove excess fat or skin from the area.
At your consultation, your doctor will examine the area around the eyes, taking any wrinkles, sagging, or excess skin into account. He will examine your eyelid and facial structure and get to know your treatment goals so he can develop a personalized treatment plan. During your procedure, you will be sedated, usually with IV or general anesthesia, so that you can’t feel anything. Your doctor will make small incisions around the eyelids and carefully remove fatty tissue and excess skin to help lift the eyelids and restore their youthful appearance. After you receive blepharoplasty treatment, you will recover for a short time in our office and be sent home later that day to rest so that you can enjoy the more youthful appearance in your face and eye region.
