What is an eyelid lift?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical technique designed to lift and smooth the delicate tissue around the eyes. As we age, the thin skin along the upper eyelid can begin to sag, leading to wrinkles and an aged appearance. 

Similarly, the fat pads under the eyes may push outward, causing under-eye bags. Our innovative Blepharoplasty technique can improve sagging skin and puffiness in the upper and lower eyelids through a simple but meticulously performed outpatient procedure. Each area can be treated individually, or both upper and lower lid Blepharoplasty can be combined with a single surgical appointment.

Who is the ideal candidate for blepharoplasty?

The ideal candidate for an eyelid lift is in overall good health but is concerned about sagging, thin eyelid tissue. Understanding the blepharoplasty procedure, recovery requirements, and realistic expectations for the results are essential. While blepharoplasty can improve wrinkling around the eyes, it may not address fine lines and crow’s feet. In such cases, our surgeons can recommend additional techniques.

What is the blepharoplasty procedure?

The procedure typically uses IV or oral sedation techniques. The duration can vary, but it usually takes one to two hours for either the upper or lower lids or both.

  • For upper eyelid blepharoplasty, a thin incision is made along the natural eyelid crease, allowing for the removal of excess fat and sagging skin. Fine sutures are used to ensure proper healing, with scarring discreetly hidden within the skin’s natural contours.
  • Lower eyelid blepharoplasty employs the transconjunctival approach, which is ideal for eliminating bulging fat pads and puffiness below the eyes. This technique involves a small incision just below the lower lash line inside the lid, leaving no visible scarring.

What is the recovery from blepharoplasty?

Recovery from Blepharoplasty typically takes one to two weeks. Some swelling and mild bruising may occur, but pain is usually minimal. An ice pack can help reduce swelling and discomfort. Most patients can resume light daily activities within a week or two, with many returning to work in five to ten days. A follow-up appointment is scheduled for about a week after surgery to check healing progress and remove the remaining sutures.

What is the cost of blepharoplasty?

The exact cost of eyelid surgery in Brookline will depend on the extent of your surgery and whether additional procedures are required. During the consultation, our surgeons will provide a precise estimate.
