What to Expect During Blepharoplasty Surgery

As you age, your upper and lower eyelids often begin to droop and appear puffy due to weakened muscles and excess fat. In addition to making you look older and tired, these sagging eyelids can also affect your peripheral vision.

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve the appearance of your eyelids and enhance your field of vision.

During this outpatient surgery, surgeons will create an incision where there is a natural crease in your eyelid and remove excess fat and skin to help improve the firmness of your eyelids. This extra firmness will help you look younger and more alert.

Some possible side effects of blepharoplasty include swelling, bruising, numbness and itching around your eyes. Many patients are also sensitive to light during the recovery period which normally lasts around two weeks.

During recovery, swelling around the eye will slowly decrease. People who wear contact lenses can normally begin wearing them again around 5 to 7 days after surgery.
