Blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery, eyelid lift and eyelid tuck) is a procedure to correct the sagging or "drooping' of the eyelids and the removal of excess fat, skin and atrophied muscle or even the "herniated" fat in the eye area. As we get older, most individuals will start to see a difference in their eye area - more laxity, "bags" below and above the eye; some times so much that the upper lid seems to "disappear underneath the extra fatty area under the brow bone. This procedure can give a more youthful appearance to an otherwise older, more tired looking face.

Blepharoplasty is a procedure which should be performed by a surgeon who is well skilled with its technique and experienced with numerous facial types and eye types. As with every surgery, there are risks and if your procedure is performed by an inexperienced surgeon this could prove disastrous. Especially with Blepharoplasty.

Blepharoplasty will not rid you of wrinkles around the eye area. This includes crow's feet or other such wrinkles in the peri-orbital area. This procedure will not eliminate dark circles or lift your eyebrows. If a lifting effect of the eyebrows is what you are seeking a Brow Lift will better suit you.

Are You a Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

If you are in good health, have no pre-existing diseases or medical conditions, are mentally and emotionally stable, have realistic expectations and you have loose, sagging, fatty eyelids you may be a good candidate for Blepharoplasty. Most individuals seek out Blepharoplasty in their late thirties to mid forties and up. However, if saggy or fatty eyelids are hereditary you may wish to go undergo this procedure at an earlier age. 

Risks and Complications Associated with Blepharoplasty

Please read these risks completely, the risks can be many with Blepharoplasty if an inexperienced surgeon is chosen. Some risks and/or complications can be avoided if the needs and condition of the patient are properly diagnosed beforehand. Of course there is the inherent risk regarding anesthesia and complications because of it - such as allergic reactions.

The minor complications that are associated with Blepharoplasty include double or blurry vision for a few days, temporary swelling at the corners of the eyelids, and milia (or tiny whiteheads) that can be removed by your surgeon by pricking them with a micro-needle. It is possible to develop asymmetry during healing or excessive scarring if you are prone to such a thing.

It is possible that you may experience difficulty in closing your eyes when sleeping. In rare instances this condition may be permanent. Also there is the rare possibility of ectropion. Ectropion is a condition where your lower lids pull down or gape post-operatively. If you should develop ectropion, further surgery will more than likely be needed to correct it. Which could lead to more risks and more cost to you, the patient. Determine revision possibilities and costs before you commit to your surgery. Get this in writing, if possible.
