Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance of the eyelids. This popular procedure can be performed on either the upper or lower eyelids, with many clients opting to do both.
The ideal candidate for blepharoplasty are people who have droopy eyelids due to aging which makes them appear tired or angry. People who suffer from a condition known as ptosis (drooping of one or both upper eyelids) may also greatly benefit from this surgery. It can be beneficial for those with puffy bags beneath their eyes caused by excess fat deposits. Blepharoplasty improves vision obstruction due to drooping lids and/or fat deposits in the upper eyelids.
Before deciding on blepharoplasty, you should consult with a board-certified surgeon who can assess your individual needs and provide you with the best treatment options. It is important for anyone considering the procedure to have realistic expectations about what blepharoplasty can do for them and understand that it cannot stop or reverse the aging process. Recovery times vary from patient to patient but typically lasts around two weeks or less.
Overall, blepharoplasty is an effective solution for many people looking to improve their appearance and reduce signs of aging around the eyes.

It is important to follow all instructions carefully during the recovery process in order to ensure that you are healed properly and quickly. Here are some tips for recovering from blepharoplasty surgery:
1. Rest – It's important to rest after surgery so that your body can recover and heal correctly. Make sure to get plenty of sleep each night, which will help you heal faster.
2. Apply Ice – Applying ice packs to the affected area can reduce swelling and discomfort. Make sure to wrap the ice pack in a towel or cloth before applying it directly to your skin.
3. Keep Your Eyes Clean – It is important to keep your eyes clean during recovery, as dirt and other particles can lead to inflammation and infection. Gently wipe the eyelids with a damp cloth soaked in warm water several times per day.
4. Avoid Rubbing Your Eyes– Rubbing your eyes can irritate them and make healing more difficult. If you feel like something is stuck in your eye, use a damp cloth instead of rubbing it out.
5. Don't Wear Contacts – Wearing contact lenses can irritate the eyes and make them susceptible to infection. Make sure to wear glasses instead until your doctor gives you the green light to put contacts back in.
Recovering from blepharoplasty surgery is a process that takes time, but following these tips will help ensure that the healing goes as smoothly as possible.
