As I get older, I am now 49, I notice my eyelids looking a little less than perfect. I keep hearing about Blepharoplasty when I am in New York. What is a Blepharoplasty exactly?


Good question! Blepharoplasty is surgical rejuvenation for the eyes. You can have an upper Blepharoplasty, just addressing your upper lids, a lower Blepharoplasty, addressing your lower lids, or opt for both at one time for a fully refreshed look. Some patients will decide to have their Blepharoplasty performed with just local anesthesia while some prefer to be a little more relaxed and go under general anesthesia. A Blepharoplasty targets two main components: the removal of excess skin and removal of fat pockets. When both are removed, the appearance of “bags” under the eye or “puffy” eyelids is usually very nicely corrected. A Blepharoplasty can also used to help the peripheral vision if the upper lids are drooping too low covering the eye and blocking vision.
