Key Benefits of Eyelid Rejuvenation (Blepharoplasty)

by Michael Zarrabi, MD

The eyelid rejuvenation procedure offers both aesthetic and functional benefits, as the skin tissues are manipulated in such a way that improves peripheral vision and tightens up the upper facial area. Key benefits of eyelid rejuvenation include:

  • Reduction or removal of bags around the eyes
  • Correction of eyelid ‘droopiness’
  • Correcting and reducing puffiness around the eyes
  • Creating a more alert and fresher appearance
  • Improving range of vision
  • Removal of unwanted fat and skin from upper facial area
  • Tightens up fine wrinkles on the lower eyelid

Eyelid surgery can be performed on both men and women who want to enjoy a more youthful look and improve their vision. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia and involves very small incisions on the upper eyelid. Any tightening of the lower eyelid or removal of bags under the eyes involves small incisions directly below the lower lash line.

Other Information About Blepharoplasty – Eyelid Surgery

Most patients experience swelling and tenderness immediately after the blepharoplasty procedure, and this can be treated using a cold compress and elevating the head for several days immediately after surgery. The eyes may be especially sensitive to light, and some people do experience blurring and double vision. However, the majority of patients can enjoy regular vision within 2-3 days after surgery, and can wear contact lenses between 10-14 days after the procedure.
