What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure that addresses concerns in the upper and lower eyelids. It can remove excess skin and fatty deposits contributing to puffiness, under-eye bags, sagging skin, and drooping eyelids. Dr. Dave Lee offers both upper and lower blepharoplasty and can sometimes combine these procedures for a more comprehensive rejuvenation effect.


What is the Blepharoplasty procedure like?

Blepharoplasty for a Rejuvenated Look

During your personalized consultation at PURE Cosmetic Center, Dr. Lee will discuss your goals, evaluate your eyelids, and recommend the most suitable blepharoplasty approach. The blepharoplasty procedure itself is typically performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. Most eyelid surgeries can be done under local anesthesia. Some patients may prefer sedation or general anesthesia for eyelid surgeries.

While the specific details of your procedure will depend on your unique anatomy and goals, Dr. Lee will remove excess eyelid skin and excess fat around the eyes to refine your eyelid contours.

What conditions does Blepharoplasty address?

Blepharoplasty can address a variety of concerns around the eyes, including:

  • Excess eyelid skin and wrinkles
  • Puffiness or sagging in the lower eyelid
  • Drooping upper eyelids that obstruct vision (ptosis)
  • Excess fat, bags, or puffiness in the lower eyelids

What areas of the body can Blepharoplasty address?

Blepharoplasty for Enhanced Beauty

Blepharoplasty focuses on the upper and lower eyelids, creating a refreshed and more youthful appearance in the delicate eye area.

What other procedures are typically performed at the same time with a Blepharoplasty?

In order to rejuvenate the whole eye area, other techniques are combined with a lower blepharoplasty to obtain the most optimal results. Fat transfer is an important adjunct procedure that helps improve the junction between the lower eyelid and the cheek. Improving the cheek can greatly improve the eye area. Furthermore, injecting nanofat or microfat into the lower eyelids can restore the youthfulness for this delicate area. Laser resurfacing can also be combined with lower blepharoplasty for an even more dramatic result. Other non-surgical modalities such as PRP and PRFM injections can be helpful for improving the lower eyelid area. Dr. Dave Lee is an expert in facial plastic surgery and will recommend the best techniques for achieving your goals.

A Lasting Transformation

Blepharoplasty may be a good option for men and women who are in good overall health, have realistic expectations, and are looking to improve the appearance of their eyelids. Dr. Lee will discuss your candidacy during your consultation and address your questions.

Blepharoplasty Recovery

While there will be some initial bruising and swelling following surgery, Dr. Lee will provide detailed recovery instructions to ensure a comfortable healing process. Most patients return to work within a week and resume normal activities within a few weeks.


Blepharoplasty Results

You will begin to see the initial results of your blepharoplasty within a few days, with the final results becoming visible within several weeks as the swelling subsides. Blepharoplasty results are typically long-lasting, but natural aging and sun exposure can affect the appearance of the eyelids over time.

Blepharoplasty FAQs

There are two main types of blepharoplasty: upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty. Upper blepharoplasty addresses drooping eyelids and excess skin in the upper eyelid. Lower blepharoplasty targets puffiness and under-eye bags in the lower eyelid. Dr. Lee will discuss which type of blepharoplasty is right for you or if you might benefit from combining both procedures.

Blepharoplasty incisions are carefully placed in natural creases or along the lash line to minimize scarring. Dr. Lee uses meticulous surgical techniques to promote optimal healing and reduce scar visibility. Over time, scars typically fade significantly.

In some cases, blepharoplasty can improve vision. Drooping in the upper eyelid (ptosis) can obstruct the upper field of vision. Blepharoplasty to address ptosis can lift the eyelid and improve vision. During your consultation, Dr. Lee will discuss whether blepharoplasty can address your vision concerns.

To prepare for blepharoplasty surgery, Dr. Lee may recommend stopping smoking several weeks beforehand. You may also need to avoid medications that can interfere with blood clotting. Dr. Lee will provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions during your consultation.

Blepharoplasty results are typically long-lasting, but natural aging and sun exposure can affect the appearance of the eyelids over time. Sun protection is essential to help preserve your results, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can also contribute to lasting positive effects.

As with any plastic surgery procedure, blepharoplasty carries potential risks, such as infection, bleeding, and temporary dry eyes. Dr. Lee will discuss these risks during your consultation and take all necessary precautions to minimize them.
