Also known as eyelid surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that involves removing excess skin, fat, and muscle from the eyelids to improve the appearance of the eyes.

During the procedure, the surgeon makes small incisions in the natural creases of the upper eyelids or inside the lower eyelids. Through these incisions, they remove or reposition excess skin, fat, and muscle. The incisions are then closed with sutures or adhesive tape, and the patient is sent to recovery.

Before the procedure

Patients should avoid smoking and drinking alcohol, as these can impair healing and increase the risk of complications. They should also stop taking blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin or ibuprofen, as these can increase the risk of bleeding. The surgeon will provide specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, including what medications to take and what to eat and drink before surgery.

After the procedure

Patients may experience bruising, swelling, and discomfort for several days to a few weeks. The surgeon may prescribe pain medication to manage any discomfort. Patients should avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for several weeks after surgery to prevent complications. They should also use cold compresses to reduce swelling and keep their head elevated while sleeping.


The results of a blepharoplasty can be long-lasting, but they can be affected by the natural aging process. Patients can maintain their results by following a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise. They should also protect their eyes from the sun and wear sunglasses when outdoors.
