What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure to remove excess tissue around the eyelids. As we age, skin loses elasticity. In some people, skin can pool around the eyes causing wrinkles, puffiness, under-eye bags, and drooping.

During a blepharoplasty, tiny incisions are made under local anesthesia, and any excess skin or underlying tissue is removed from the eyelids. The procedure takes between one and three hours, and you may have bruising and swelling around your eyes for a few days afterwards. Icing the area may help.

The surgery is sometimes done along with other facial surgery as part of a facelift. Typically, a blepharoplasty is considered cosmetic. In severe cases, however, upper eyelids may droop so significantly that they make it hard to see. In these cases, blepharoplasty may be considered a necessary treatment.
