Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the eyelids. It can address various aesthetic concerns, as well as functional issues related to the eyelids. While the decision to undergo blepharoplasty ultimately rests with the individual, there are certain factors that can help determine who might benefit from this procedure.
Features & Benefits
Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate the eyes and provide a more youthful appearance. By removing sagging skin and reducing puffiness around the eyes, the procedure can make you look more alert and energetic.
In cases where excess upper eyelid skin obstructs vision, blepharoplasty can significantly improve sight by removing the overhanging skin. This can lead to enhanced functionality and better quality of life.
Reduced Under-Eye Bags
Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can target under-eye bags and puffiness caused by excess fat deposits. By repositioning or removing these fat pockets, the eyes can appear smoother and less tired.
Many individuals who undergo blepharoplasty report increased self-confidence due to the improved appearance of their eyes. The procedure can help individuals feel better about their overall look and more comfortable in social and professional settings.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and sometimes muscle from the upper and/or lower eyelids. It’s performed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes and correct issues such as drooping eyelids and under-eye bags.
Good candidates for blepharoplasty are individuals with sagging or drooping eyelids, excess skin or fat in the eyelid area, and those who wish to achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
Upper blepharoplasty addresses concerns with the upper eyelids, including excess skin that may droop over the eyelashes. Lower blepharoplasty targets under-eye bags caused by excess fat deposits and sagging skin.
Blepharoplasty can be both cosmetic and medical. While it’s commonly performed for aesthetic reasons, upper eyelid blepharoplasty can also be medically necessary if excess skin impairs vision.
During the surgery, incisions are made in the natural creases of the eyelids. Excess skin, fat, and sometimes muscle are removed or repositioned. The incisions are then closed with sutures.
Blepharoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia with sedation or under general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and the patient’s comfort level.
Recovery varies, but most patients experience swelling and bruising for about a week. Sutures are typically removed within a week. Patients can usually return to work within 1-2 weeks.
Like any surgery, blepharoplasty carries risks such as infection, bleeding, scarring, and changes in sensation. Consulting with a skilled surgeon can help minimize these risks.
