Eyelid surgery requires finesse and excellent surgical technique to achieve a natural and yet rejuvenating effect.

The modern era of eyelid surgery did away with the hollow and unnatural appearance of the eyes. The young eyes have a very specific anatomical appearance, and the new blepharoplasty techniques allow an eyelid surgical specialist to recreate this look in an older individual.

There is some bruising and swelling for a week or so, depending on the individual. Since most eyelid surgery can be done under local anesthesia with some sedation, the patients can function normally in a couple of days. Most of my patients can return to work in a week or so, but depending on the extent of surgery, for some patients, it can take a few weeks before they can be “camera-ready” for a major event.
