Eyelid Surgery (blepharoplasty) is a procedure used to correct loose skin and sagging around the eyes and removing fatty deposits which cause puffy bags beneath the eyes. This is done by removing the excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. This procedure can also be used to add a crease to the upper eyelid in Asian patients.
Eyelid surgery can be done alone or in conjunction with other procedures: facelift, browlift, nose or ear surgery.
Eyelid surgery is usually done as an outpatient, in a surgeon’s office, an outpatient surgery center, or a hospital. It is usually performed under local anesthesia. Some surgeons prefer to use general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes 1-2 hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.
Eyelid surgery has infrequent and usually minor complications when performed by a qualified surgeon. Most people return to in 7-10 days and are able to wear makeup then.
