Depending on your needs, the procedure will involve either your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. Blepharoplasty is a fantastic option to address wrinkles, deep lines, bags, dark circles, and puffiness. Patients who’ve undergone an eyelift procedure are told their eyes look fuller, brighter, and more expressive. Even though the procedures are performed on the eyelids and not your eyes, you’ll look and feel like you have brand new eyes, without creating an unnatural, wide-eyed look. You will look younger, more dynamic, vital, and refreshed.

Candidates for blepharoplasty surgery – is it time to refresh your look?

Before having an eyelid lift procedure, it’s important to speak with our surgeon for a thorough consultation. Dr. Michelle Cabret will meet with you and discuss all your concerns. We’ll review your medical history and current wellbeing to determine if you are a good candidate for blepharoplasty. Afterward, we’ll determine a course of action according to your needs. A good candidate for the surgery should be in good overall health and be free of any illness or condition that could inhibit healing.

What can an eye lift do?

The blepharoplasty procedure can correct the following:

  • Excess skin in the lower eyelids
  • Puffy fat deposits on eyelids or under the eyes
  • Folded skin over upper eyelids
  • Under-eye bags

What is the procedure?

The eye lift procedure is an outpatient procedure. You’ll be given local anesthesia, or in some cases, IV sedation. Incisions are placed in the upper eyelid, in the natural crease, or in the lower eyelid along the lash line depending on your custom treatment plan. Through the meticulously placed incision, excess skin, fat, or muscle is repaired, removed, or repositioned to its natural, youthful position. The procedure typically involves removing a small amount of skin in either the upper or lower eyelids to restore a youthful look to the eye structure. Finally, we use fractional laser treatments to rejuvenate skin quality.

Blepharoplasty recovery

After the procedure is complete, you will experience some mild swelling and bruising. Swelling typically peaks within 48-72 hours and will then gradually subside over the course of one week. Sutures are removed within 10-14 days after the procedure.
