Eyelid surgery, which includes blepharoplasty and ptosis repair, can fix droopy upper eyelids as well as under-eye bags, which helps bring out your bright, sparkling, youthful eyes for all to see.
Blepharoplasty and ptosis repair are quick, outpatient surgeries and can be performed separately, depending on your needs.
Blepharoplasty generally involves the removal of drooping excess tissue and can be performed on your upper eyelid or under your eyes.
Ptosis repair is a secondary procedure that tightens the muscles under your upper eyelids and lifts drooping lids.
Eyelid surgery may be the solution for you if you feel your eyes are being hidden or overwhelmed by droopy skin over them and/or puffy skin (bags) under them.
What to Expect
During your eyelid surgery, your plastic surgeon makes tiny incisions to remove the extra tissue and/or tighten the muscles, and then finishes the procedure with tiny stitches.
Our expert surgeon(s) minimize the risk of scarring by using precise, minimally invasive cuts in areas such as existing creases, wrinkles, or eyelid folds, which will hide any scarring that may occur.
Performed under your choice of partial or full anesthesia, eyelid surgery generally takes less than two hours to complete, and you can return home immediately after surgery.
Your eyes and the surrounding areas should fully recover in about two weeks, and during that time, you may experience some pain and redness and your eyes may feel sticky, itchy, watery, or dry.
