All eyelid surgeries are performed on the lids or surrounding tissues, not the eyes themselves.
Eyelid surgery aims to improve the general appearance of the eye area, including a reduction of puffiness or drooping related to aging and/or heredity.
Blepharoplasty, the most frequently performed type of cosmetic eye surgery, can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both.
Blepharoplasty (often called an eye lift) can treat cosmetic conditions including fatty deposits that create puffiness in the upper and lower lids, bags under the eyes, excess skin and wrinkles in the lower eyelid, and drooping lids.
Blepharoplasty also can correct for folds in the upper eyelid that impair vision.
Recovery time varies depending on the specific procedure performed. Generally, patients might experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the days following surgery, which can be managed with medication. It can take several weeks for all swelling to subside and for the full results of the surgery to become apparent.
While eye aesthetics surgery is generally safe, all surgical procedures come with some degree of risk. Potential complications can include infection, bleeding, dry eyes, or changes in vision, although these are rare. In some cases, additional surgery may be needed to correct any complications or achieve the desired result. It’s important to discuss these risks and your specific concerns with your surgeon prior to surgery.
