Blepharoplasty, or eye lift surgery, removes the excess fat and wrinkled, drooping skin from the upper eyelids. It also eliminates bags under the eyes and tightens the skin of the lower eyelid. The surrounding fat pads can then be redistributed for a more natural and youthful appearance.
Following the blepharoplasty, the stitches dissolve over a period of seven days. Contact lenses may be worn after one week. Some bruising may last up to two weeks and swelling may last from three to four. Exercise and sun exposure with sun screen are allowed after four weeks.
A blepharoplasty enhances and restores the health, harmony, and balance of the eyelid structures.
