Common Questions About Blepharoplasty

What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to enhance the appearance of the eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat from both the upper and lower eyelids. It’s also referred to as eyelid surgery.

Who is a good candidate for Blepharoplasty?
Individuals with droopy or sagging eyelids, puffy bags under the eyes, or obstructed vision due to excess skin may make good candidates for eyelid surgery. The best candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations about the outcome.

Is Blepharoplasty covered by insurance?
If the surgery is medically necessary, it could be covered by insurance. If the surgery is being done for purely cosmetic reasons it would be considered an elective procedure and there would be an out-of-pocket cost. We do offer financing through Care Credit for those interested.

What is the recovery process like after Blepharoplasty?
You will need time to heal after blepharoplasty. Most patients experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort around the eyes where the surgery was performed. Cold compresses and prescribed medications can help manage these symptoms. Stitches are usually removed within a week. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within 7 to 10 days, though complete healing may take several weeks.

Are there any potential risks or complications associated with Blepharoplasty?
Like any surgical procedure, blepharoplasty does have risks. It’s important to choose a skilled and experienced surgeon to minimize the chances of complications and achieve the desired results. Your Regional Eye Surgeon will be happy to discuss possible risks of the surgery during your consultation.
