Blepharoplasty

Each year, many men and women choose to undergo eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, to improve their appearance. Droopy eyelids can make you look older, tired and sad, and they can even impair your vision. Eyelid surgery lifts the eyelids, removing excess skin and fatty deposits that contribute to bags and puffiness.

What to Expect

With age, the skin of the eyelids loses its supple quality, and muscles become more lax and less supportive. These effects, along with the help of gravity, can cause upper eyelids to sag, creating a constantly tired appearance. Lower lids can droop, and prominent bags can develop.

Depending on your goals, we can determine whether you would benefit from surgery of the upper lids, lower lids or both. Eyelid surgery can also be performed in conjunction with facelift or brow lift surgery.

For patients concerned with the appearance of crow’s feet and similar signs of aging, Dr. Kaufman may suggest Dysport® or other nonsurgical med spa treatments.

Your Consult

During your consultation at Kaufman Plastic Surgery, you’ll learn more details about your procedure, as well as talk about other treatments that may be complementary to your eyelid surgery. You’ll also be given additional information about what to expect before and during surgery, and how you should prepare for your recovery.

Preparing for Your Eyelid Surgery

During eyelid surgery, excess fat, muscle, and skin will be removed from either the upper or lower lids, or both. Generally, blepharoplasty surgery takes 1 to 2 hours.

Recovery &
Results

The recovery period for eyelid surgery varies. Immediately following your blepharoplasty, you should sleep with your head upright. Ice packs can help alleviate swelling and keep you comfortable.
