Eylid Surgery Q & A

What is eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a type of cosmetic surgery in which The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery specialists remove excess eyelid tissue to tighten it, make your eyelids look younger, and improve your line of vision. The specialists are highly skilled in eyelid and other forms of cosmetic surgeries.

What are the benefits of eyelid surgery?

Some of the many benefits you can experience with eyelid surgery at The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery include:

  • Less eyelid drooping
  • Tighter eyelids
  • Younger-looking eyelids
  • Improved line of vision
  • More self-confidence

There’s little downtime after eyelid surgery, but it can produce dramatic results in the appearance of your eyes and your line of vision.

Is eyelid surgery right for me?

To determine if eyelid surgery is right for you, The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery specialists review your medical history and examine your eyelids. They discuss your desired outcome and let you know what to expect during the procedure.

How should I prepare for eyelid surgery?

To get ready for eyelid surgery at The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery, follow your provider’s instructions. They might ask you to stop taking certain medications and arrange for someone to drive you home afterward. Protect your eyelids from the sun before and after surgery.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Right before eyelid surgery, your specialist numbs the treatment area so that you don’t feel any pain and offers medicine to help you relax. They make tiny incisions and remove excess skin and other tissues before closing the incisions and taking you to a recovery area. 

What happens after eyelid surgery?

Follow all of your post-care instructions after eyelid surgery at The Center for Dermatology Cosmetic & Laser Surgery. Take medications as directed and apply ointment to the treatment area if your doctor asks you to. 

Ice your eyelids as needed to reduce swelling and discomfort, and avoid strenuous activity or heavy lifting until your surgeon clears you for it. Over time as your eyelids heal, you can expect tighter, younger-looking eyelids and improvements in your line of vision.
