Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)


Eyelid surgery, also known as “blepharoplasty,” is a procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the upper and/or lower eyelids. Loose skin that causes fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging is removed, and fat deposits that cause puffiness and bags are removed or repositioned. As the muscles and other tissues are tightened, the eyes attain a refreshed and invigorated appearance.

How Blepharoplasty Helps

Look More Youthful

Signs of aging are prominent around the eyes in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Blepharoplasty removes excess skin and tightens loose tissue surrounding the eyes to produce firm, smooth skin with a more youthful appearance.

Brighten Tired Eyes

Loose skin and fat deposits can weigh down the eyelids and create a tired appearance even if a person is well rested. Excess fatty deposits can also create bags and puffiness around the eyes that contribute to a tired look. Eyelid surgery eliminates excess skin and fat to rejuvenate the areas around the eyes and provide patients with a more rested and alert appearance.

Restore Impaired Vision

Excess fatty deposits and sagging skin on the upper eyelids can hang down and impair a person’s full range of vision. Upper eyelid surgery removes this excess skin and fat so patients no longer have drooping eyelids impairing their vision.

Blepharoplasty FAQ

  • Q. Where are the incisions placed for blepharoplasty?

    A. The incision for upper eyelid surgery is placed within the natural crease of the eyelid so that no scar will be noticeable once it heals. The incision for lower eyelid surgery may be inconspicuously placed just below the lashes to remove excess skin, or an incision hidden within the lower lid may be used to remove and reposition tissue.

  • Q. When can I return to work and normal activities after the procedure?

    A. Most patients are able to resume work and normal activities about ten days after eyelid surgery. Some swelling and bruising may persist for a couple of weeks, but cold compresses will help reduce these side effects.

  • Q. How soon will I see the results of my eyelid surgery?

    A. Results from blepharoplasty may be obscured at first due to swelling and bruising, but smooth, more youthful eyelids are generally visible within a few weeks after surgery. Incision lines will continue to improve over time and may take up to a year to fully refine.

  • Q. How long will the results of blepharoplasty last?

    A. Results from eyelid surgery will be long lasting as long as the patient maintains a healthy skincare regimen and protects the area from the sun. The skin and tissues around the eyes will continue to age naturally.

I Loved Working With Dr. Tseng

and felt that he spent time understanding my personal goals. I was not trying to look “20 something” — I just wanted to look the best I could at this age. I plan to continue aging beautifully with Dr. Tseng helping me define my own beauty.
