Blepharoplasty Q & A

What is blepharoplasty?

With age, the thin, delicate area of your upper eyelid can slowly sag, giving your eyes a tired appearance. Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to lift your eyelid and eliminate this lax tissue. The surgery results in a brighter, more alert look to enhance your facial appearance. 

What does a blepharoplasty address?

Blepharoplasty tightens sagging and loose skin to restore the natural, youthful contour of your upper eyelid. Meridian Plastic Surgery also recommends the surgery to correct:

  • Puffy eyelids
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Drooping lower eyelids 
  • Excess skin
  • Fine wrinkles 

Blepharoplasty also corrects fat pads to make your eyes look more rested and youthful. 

How do I know if blepharoplasty is right for me?

You can expect your surgeon at Meridian Plastic Surgery to thoroughly evaluate your facial anatomy during your consultation. Together, you discuss which procedures might be best to address your concerns about your appearance.

Sometimes, a drooping upper lid is due to the gradual relaxation of your eyebrows and forehead that happens with age. Given this, your surgeon may recommend a brow lift to give you the results you desire.

In other cases, a saggy upper eyelid may be due to eyelid ptosis, a muscle condition where the upper lid droops over your eye, sometimes making it difficult to see. If you have this issue, your surgeon suggests blepharoplasty and/or a different type of procedure to address your drooping eyelid and restore your vision.

When do I see results from blepharoplasty?

You should see immediate results as soon as any swelling and bruising subside. Bruising and swelling are usually mild with blepharoplasty. Generally, expect to need around 2-4 weeks after your surgery to fully heal.

What is a brow lift?

Your surgeon at Meridian Plastic Surgery may suggest a brow lift along with blepharoplasty to enhance the look of your upper face. As the name suggests, a brow lift rejuvenates the appearance of your eyes by lifting sagging eyebrows and smoothing away deep forehead wrinkles.
