Drooping or hooded eyelids and puffy bags under the eyes can make a person look tired and significantly older than they are. Eyelid surgery or eyelid lift – also known as Blepharoplatsy – can take years off your appearance making the patient look younger and fresher.
While some patients require both upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery, others may need just one procedure.
- Upper Bleph – Reduces drooping eyelids by removing excess skin and possibly some fat from the upper eyelids to rejuvenate the upper eyelids.
- Lower Bleph – Blepharoplasty can also reshape the lower lid to reduce puffiness. The bags of excess fat under the eyes are what can make you look older and more tired.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure
- The Surgery: The procedure is done in a hospital surgery center on an outpatient basis and typically lasts between one and three hours. There is usually no need for an overnight stay.
- Recovery: The stitches from the procedure are removed after about three days at your follow up appointment.
- Resuming Activities: It generally will take a week before makeup can be applied and you can return to work.
Who Isn’t a Candidate for Blepharoplasty? Complications?
When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, blepharoplasty complications are uncommon or very minor. Always check with your ophthalmologist or family doctor before undergoing this procedure.
There are some medical conditions that may preclude someone from being a candidate for blepharoplasty including:
- Dry eyes
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
The Benefits of Blepharoplasty
- Removal of excess skin from upper eyelids: With extremely hooded upper eyelids, you may be able to see better when obstructing overhanging skin is removed.
- Reduced puffiness in lower eyelids: You will look more rested when bags under your eyes are gone.
- Younger, fresher appearance: A bleph physically removes signs of aging, so you can face the world looking like your old (or young!) self.
- Improved confidence: When you look better, you will feel better and the people around you will see it.

"Before Voluma everyone was always asking me if I was sick or sad – and that’s enough to make you sad. After Voluma I get “Hello” and “How are you”, no more sick and sad, just a lot of smiles. I never smiled before Voluma, now I can’t stop smiling."—Cynthia
