Eyelids or Blepharoplasty


Blepharoplasty is an operation designed to remove excess skin and fat bags from the eyelids. As with other areas of the face and neck that may exhibit wrinkles and bulges, these conditions are due to a combination of hereditary and aging factors. Progressive upper lid fullness over a long period of time may produce overhanging skin folds that result in partial visual obstruction. Although blepharoplasty is usually performed in conjunction with a face lift operation, it can also be performed independently mostly in younger males and females whose facial skin is still "tight." The aim of the operation is to produce a more rested, youthful looking appearance. When fatty tissues "bags" are removed they generally do not return.

Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery can be performed with other cosmetic surgeries like rhinoplasty, face lift, chin and cheek augmentation and otoplasty. We have centers at Beverly Hills and Los Angeles.

The Operative Process

As in a face lift operation, blepharoplasty is performed under I.V. sedation and local anesthesia. Incisions are placed in the natural folds of the upper eyelids and right beneath the lashes on the lower eyelids. The procedure takes about one hour. No bandage is placed around the eyes, but ice compresses are placed over the eyelids for 24 to 48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising.

Sutures are removed 4 to 5 days post-operatively and patients are able to resume their everyday activities sometimes with the help of dark glasses. Make-up is allowed on one week later.

In the Oriental patient, puffiness of the upper eyelids, absence of an eyelid fold, and presence of an epicanthal fold next to the nose, require a special technique to correct these findings.
