Blepharoplasty Beverly Hills

Blepharoplasty Beverly Hills

The eyes are frequently where the face shows its first or most drastic signs of aging. Typical changes that occur include drooping of the eyebrow, excessive fullness or sagging skin of the upper lid, and lower eyelid bags.

Eyelid surgery or “blepharoplasty” addresses these characteristics to give the patient a more youthful appearance. It may involve changes to the skin, underlying fat tissue, or both.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, eliminates surplus skin and addresses aging-related issues. As eyelids stretch and muscles weaken, it resolves sagging eyebrows, drooping upper lids, and under-eye bags.

Eyelid Surgery Candidate

  • A healthy patient with no significant medical problems.
  • A patient displeased with any of the following

Problems and Indicators

  • Excess or droopy skin
  • Sagging eyelid
  • Prominent lower eyelid bags

Types of Eyelid Surgery

The procedure is performed while the patient receives intravenous sedation unless performed in conjunction with another cosmetic surgery procedure such as a facelift or rhinoplasty.

Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid)

  • external incisions which typically heal with little to no scar
  • direct excision of excess skin
  • midface or chin augmentation
  • sagging upper lids or eyelid “ptosis” can also be addressed at the time of reconstructive surgery

Lower Blepharoplasty Surgery (lower eyelids)

  • either external or internal (hidden) incisions may be used
  • fat pads can be excised or repositioned depending on the patient’s anatomy
  • midface or chin augmentation
  • skin excess can also be addressed

Blepharoplasty Procedure

Cosmetic eyelid surgery involves essential steps:


Receive tailored anesthesia, ensuring comfort during the procedure. Options include intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, chosen based on your doctor’s recommendation.

The Incision:

Carefully planned incision lines in blepharoplasty ensure discreet scars within natural eyelid structures. The upper eyelid is addressed through a incision in its natural crease, allowing adjustments like fat removal, muscle tightening, and excess skin removal.

Lower eyelid issues can be addressed by making an incision just below the lash line, removing excess skin and repositioning or removing excess fat. Alternatively, a transconjunctival incision inside the lower eyelid lift redistributes or removes excess fat without removing any skin.

Closing the Incisions:

Eyelid rejuvenation incisions are usually sealed with sutures or skin glue, removed within a week. Your surgeon may recommend a laser or chemical peel to minimize lower eyelid discoloration.

Eyelid Surgery Results

Experience the gradual unveiling of eyelid surgery results, revealing smoother, well-defined eyelids and a refreshed appearance as swelling and bruising diminish. Explore more about the outcomes of eyelid surgery.

Blepharoplasty Recovery

This outpatient procedure ensures convenience, with minimal pain and swelling, resolving within one to two weeks.

Over-the-counter pain medication suffices, and no special garments or drains are necessary. Sutures are removed in five to seven days, allowing for a prompt return to daily activities, including walking and showering the day after surgery.

While lifting is restricted to under 10 pounds for two weeks, patients can drive within one to two days unless hindered by swelling or medication.

Strenuous activities are discouraged for four weeks, but return to work is possible within a week, depending on job demands. Postoperative appointments at one week, two weeks, six weeks, and three months ensure comprehensive follow-up care.

Eyelid Surgery FAQS

Is blepharoplasty surgery painful?

Blepharoplasty ranks among the least uncomfortable cosmetic procedure. You might experience mild discomfort on the surgery day, but a rapid improvement in how you feel is expected from a successful eyelid surgery.

How long does blepharoplasty take to heal?

Typically, plan for a recovery period of five to 10 days before returning to work after blepharoplasty. Individuals undergoing either upper or lower eyelid surgery often resume work after just one week. However, those opting for both upper and lower eyelid procedures usually find a two-week recovery period more suitable for their comprehensive healing.

Are you awake during blepharoplasty?

To ensure your comfort during the procedure, you’ll receive either local or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia numbs the eyelid and surrounding area, allowing you to remain sedated but awake during the surgery. On the other hand, general anesthesia keeps you asleep throughout the entire procedure.

What is the best age to have blepharoplasty?

Although many individuals may contemplate eyelid surgery in their 30s and 40s, there are no strict rules regarding the ideal age. The right time is whenever you personally feel the need for eyelid tightening and rejuvenation, regardless of age.

Does insurance cover blepharoplasty?

Insurance coverage for eyelid surgery varies. Functional aspects, such as vision improvement, may be eligible for coverage. However, insurance rarely covers lower lid surgery.

How painful is droopy eyelid surgery?

Usually, an upper blepharoplasty procedure has minimal pain, and patients typically encounter only slight discomfort throughout the recovery phase. The surgery is relatively gentle, resembling a skin excision, and the eyelid itself is not known to induce significant pain.

What is revision eyelid surgery?

Revision blepharoplasty, also referred to as eyelid revision surgery, is a subsequent surgical intervention conducted to address complications that may have occurred or to enhance the outcomes of a prior eyelid surgery.
