Upper and/or Lower Eyelids
Eyelid Lift surgery restores drooping upper eyelids and revives puffy lower lids (bags under the eyes). Eyelid Surgery can result in a more alert, youthful appearance without an extreme makeover. The Blepharoplasty procedure is approximately a 2 hour procedure (4 hours for both upper & lower eyelids) at our on-site surgery center. This same-day surgery is an outpatient procedure, with IV anesthesia provided. Sutures are typically removed at 7-10 days, and most patients can return to work at 1 week. More strenuous activity should be avoided for 4 weeks. Bruising typically lasts 1-2 weeks, but Arnica tablets are recommended to reduce bruising and speed healing. Patients must limit exposure to sun on the incision sites for 3 weeks and should use a sunscreen thereafter.
