What is Blepharoplasty?
By definition, blepharoplasty is the “repair or reconstruction of the eyelid.” This procedure aims to correct defects around the eye. Aside from correcting drooping upper eyelids that can potentially blind the eye, puffiness around the eyes can also be corrected.
Results of Blepharoplasty
Both sides are usually operated on in a single procedure, and patients usually return to their daily life 7-10 days following their surgery. During the first two days, the doctor may recommend using cold packs to reduce the risk of bruising. Patients should expect thin bandages being placed over the incisions that will be removed several days after the surgery.
Because of the location of the incisions, there is no visible scarring following this procedure.

During this time, the doctor will observe your current appearance and address any concerns you may have regarding the procedure. You can also expect a more thorough explanation of how your unique procedure will be performed.
