If time has taken its toll on the appearance of your eyes, it may be time for blepharoplasty surgery. In the hands of an experienced surgeon, this procedure can restore youth and vibrance to your appearance by rejuvenating your most expressive feature.

What is Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)?

Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as an eyelid lift, is a surgery to correct signs of aging around the eyes. As we age, excess skin and fat around our eyes droops, leading to “hooded” eyelids, under-eye bags, wrinkles, and an older, tired appearance. 

Blepharoplasty can include an upper eyelid lift, a lower eyelid lift, or both. An upper eyelid lift will address sagging above the eye and “hooding,” while a lower eyelid lift can reduce bags or hollows beneath the eyes. Dr. Stile can help you determine what blepharoplasty procedure will best achieve your aesthetic goals.

What to Expect During Blepharoplasty

An eyelid lift is a fast, easy procedure with remarkable results. Dr. Stile performs blepharoplasty under general or local anesthesia in one to two hours, depending on your procedure. For an upper eyelid lift, he will make incisions in the crease above each eye, or just under the eyelashes for a lower eyelid lift. He will then be able to tighten skin and muscles, contour the eye area, and remove or reposition excess skin and fat.

Recovery After Blepharoplasty

Recovery from blepharoplasty is short, with minimal discomfort. You should expect bruising and swelling around the eyes for a week or two, during which time you may want to use pain medication, eye drops, and ice packs. Most patients can return to work within one week.

Eyelid Lift Results

An eyelid lift can have an anti-aging effect on your entire face, giving you a more youthful expression. During blepharoplasty, Dr. Stile can tighten skin and muscles to smooth out wrinkles and lift drooping areas. He can also remove or reposition fat pads to reduce under-eye bags and puffiness or fill in hollows under the eye to improve dark circles.

Dr. Stile is a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience helping his patients find renewed confidence in their appearance. Some benefits of blepharoplasty include:

  • A brighter, refreshed appearance
  • Diminished wrinkles and a smoother complexion
  • Reduced under-eye bags and puffiness
  • Improvement of dark circles
  • Better field of vision

The results of blepharoplasty are long-lasting. You can expect an upper eyelid lift to last several years, and most people never need a second lower eyelid lift.
