The Blepharoplasty Procedure

Once you've been approved for this cosmetic treatment, your surgery will be performed by one of our skilled Leesburg, Fl, ophthalmologists. 

Day of Procedure

First, a numbing anesthetic will be injected for your comfort. Some patients also choose to be sedated. The procedure should be virtually painless.
Next, very small incisions will be made on the inside of the lower eyelids or in the creases on the upper eyelids, depending on your individual cosmetic needs. Our doctors will carefully create these incisions where scarring will be minimal.
During surgery, excess skin and fat will be removed, with the remaining skin lifted into a new position. Some fat under the eyelids can be modified to eliminate puffiness and hollows and the eyelid muscles can be tightened and repositioned as well.
Your eye doctor will then close the incisions and recovery can begin. An appointment will be scheduled for you to come back and have your sutures removed.

Blepharoplasty Recovery: What to Expect

  • Minor side effects like irritation, bruising, and swelling should fade in about 10 days.
  • Resting your eyes and applying ice packs can help.
  • You should be able to return to work the second week after surgery.
  • Full recovery may take a couple of months.

Our compassionate staff will provide you with all the prescriptions and instructions you need to make recovery as comfortable and fast as possible. Contact us with any questions or concerns.
