What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes by addressing issues such as sagging or drooping eyelids, excess skin, and puffiness. This surgical intervention involves removing or repositioning skin, fat, and muscle tissue around the eyes to create a more alert, youthful, and refreshed look. Whether aiming to correct aging-related changes or improve vision obstructed by sagging eyelids, blepharoplasty can enhance the overall aesthetics of the eyes and contribute to a rejuvenated facial appearance.

Is Blepharoplasty Right for Me?

If you are grappling with concerns over your appearance, such as sagging or puffy eyelids, excess skin, or impaired vision due to drooping eyelids, blepharoplasty could be the ideal solution. If these issues affect your confidence or hinder your daily life, eyelid surgery could be the transformative solution you're seeking. 

To determine the suitability of this procedure for your circumstances, we recommend scheduling a personalized consultation with our experienced team at Ascentist Plastic Surgery. During your consultation, we can assess your situation, hear your concerns and desires, and tailor a plan for your needs.

What to Expect: The Blepharoplasty Procedure

The blepharoplasty procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process. We start by strategically making incisions along the eyelids' natural creases, allowing for discreet and well-hidden scars. Excess skin and fatty tissue are skillfully removed or repositioned through these incisions to achieve a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. The underlying muscles may also be adjusted to enhance overall eye contour.

The duration of the procedure varies depending on the extent of correction needed but generally takes about 1 to 2 hours. The power behind eyelid surgery lies in the precise and artful reshaping of the eyelids, aiming to restore a refreshed and harmonious aesthetic to the eyes. The specifics of your blepharoplasty procedure will be thoroughly discussed with you during your pre-surgery consultations, ensuring you feel informed and confident about the process before beginning.

Blepharoplasty Recovery

Following blepharoplasty, a brief downtime is expected as your eyes begin healing. While some patients may experience mild discomfort during the initial recovery, any pain can be effectively managed with prescribed medications. Swelling and bruising are common in the initial days, gradually subsiding over the next week or two. While you can expect to return to most normal activities within a week, strenuous activities should be avoided for a slightly more extended period. Cold compresses and prescribed ointments can help manage swelling and aid in the healing process. Attending scheduled follow-up appointments is essential, allowing us to monitor your progress and address concerns. The full results of your blepharoplasty may take several weeks to become apparent as the residual swelling diminishes, revealing refreshed and rejuvenated eyes that enhance your overall facial harmony.
