Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery

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 of the upper lid, and lower eyelid bags. Eyelid surgery or “blepharoplasty” addresses these characteristics to give the patient a more youthful and refreshed appearance. It may involve changes to the skin, underlying fat tissue, or both.


Who Is A 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


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


  • 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 surgery


  • 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


  • Surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure.
  • Immediate results may include swelling, which should resolve completely within one to two weeks.
  • The pain is minimal and should be treated with over-the-counter pain medication.
  • There are no special garments needed for this procedure.
  • No drains will be placed post-procedure.
  • Sutures are moved in five to seven days.
  • There are no restrictions on daily activity. Patients are encouraged to walk and may shower the day after surgery. No lifting more than 10 pounds for two weeks. Provided there is no visual impairment from swelling or pain medication requirement, patient may drive one to two days after the procedure. Refrain from strenuous activity and heavy lifting for four weeks.
  • You may return to work within a week depending on your job demands.
  • You will be seen in-office following surgery at one week, two weeks, six weeks, and three months or as needed.
