Even when you feel energized and fully rested, droopy or sagging eyelids and puffy under eye circles can leave you looking tired and fatigued. Your natural eye shape may appear somewhat closed, which can lead you to have a lackluster appearance. In more extreme cases, drooping upper eyelids may even interfere with your vision.
Whether your droopy eyelids or under eye circles are an aesthetic or a medical concern, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can bring a more open and alert appearance to the eyes, allowing you to look refreshed and rejuvenated.

About Eyelid Lift Surgery
Eye lift surgery can help to reverse the hands of time by eliminating excess or puffy skin around your eyes, revealing a younger, brighter version of yourself. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper, lower or both lids, depending on which areas are problematic. For men and women with sagging skin, lines and wrinkles or other facial cosmetic concerns, eyelid surgery can also be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift or a brow lift to maximize your results.
You’ll be able to discuss your specific needs and goals during your initial consultation with one of our skilled cosmetic surgeons, who will be best equipped to assess your situation and help you decide which procedure(s) might be best for you. He or she will then design a surgical plan that can help you achieve your optimal look.
Your Eyelid Lift Surgery Procedure
Eyelid lift surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia, but using general anesthesia may also be an option. Our skilled cosmetic surgeon will create very fine, careful incisions in the crease above each eye to correct problems associated with your upper eyelids, such as eyelid drooping, that may disturb your ability to see clearly. Through these incisions, a small amount of excess skin and muscle tissue is removed and tightened during what’s known as upper eyelid surgery.
Lower eyelid surgery addresses the fatty deposits beneath your eyes that can cause dark, puffy circles. For a lower blepharoplasty, our cosmetic surgeon will place similar incisions just inside your lower eyelid, through which fat and loose skin is removed. Depending on the extent of your procedure and whether or not both the upper and lower lids are addressed, eyelid surgery can take between 1 to 2 hours.
Your Recovery & Results
Following eyelid surgery, some swelling, bruising and discomfort are common side effects. Applying cold compresses, keeping your head elevated and using any prescribed eye drops can help to reduce these symptoms. Within 7 to 10 days after your eyelid lift, most men and women are able to return to their normal daily activities, though you should still limit strenuous exercise for at least 2 to 3 weeks.
As your body continues to recover and any swelling subsides, you should begin to notice your final results taking shape within 3 months. Many men and women report feeling rejuvenated, livelier and more youthful following their eye lift surgery.
