More commonly known as an “eye lift”, blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fat from your eyelids. It is performed under local anesthetic and is usually completed within half an hour. After healing, this procedure will have you looking more youthful, alert, and rested. Your eyelids will be lighter and you will feel fresher all day.
Typical recovery time is short. Sutures dissolve within 3-weeks after surgery. Later, the suture line where the incision was made will also fade. During this time, we recommend that you avoid any activities that might lead to physical contact with the area. As well, do not use swimming pools or hot tubs during the first three weeks.
