What is a Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery that can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids. During the process, excess skin tissue is removed to help bring back the elasticity in your eyelids. As a result, your eyes will appear more alert and awake.

Recovery and side effects.

You might experience some minor bruising or swelling for the first few days post-surgery. This is normal and it’s part of the recovery process. In some cases dry or itchy skin will occur, but your doctor can provide you with a solution that will bring you some relief. Stitches will be removed after about a week. You will also need to avoid vigorous activity for about 2-3 weeks, but you will be able to slip back into your regular routine in no time.

How long does it last?

Depending on your situation, the results of blepharoplasty for the upper eyelids can last anywhere from 5 to 7 years. Lower eyelid surgery is more permanent and rarely needs to be repeated.
