Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty)                   (Click here for before and after photos)

Eyelid surgery enhances the beauty of your eyes by giving you a well rested and rejuvenated appearance. Excess skin above the eyes and bags under the eyes can be reduced or eliminated.

Procedure:Boris Goldman, MD, FACS - Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center, LLC

By removing fat, along with excess skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids, and by tightening the remaining muscles, a brighter, fresher look can be achieved. This procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia and sedation.

Recovery:

Pain is usually minimal following the procedure. Patients should use cold compresses to reduce swelling. Sutures are removed within one week and most people are back to work in about seven days.

Results:

Results will be brighter, "bag-less" eyes.

FAQs:

Will I have scars?

Scars will be nearly invisible because the incisions will follow the natural lines of the eyes. Every precaution will be taken to make certain that scarring is minimal. Sometimes incisions can be made on the inside of the eyelid leaving no visible scars.

How long will the procedure take?

The procedure usually takes between one and two hours.

Will it make my eyes look different?

Your eyes will look fresher and more rested, but their shape will remain unchanged, unless you specifically wish to change their shape intentionally.
