Blepharoplasty is eyelid surgery that is performed to improve the appearance of the eyelids.
Depending on the patient it can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both.

Each year thousands of women and men choose eyelid surgery to help restore a more energetic and youthful appearance. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is performed by Dr. Zikria for patients in our region to correct sagging eyelids, remove fatty pouches beneath the eyes and remove excess skin from the upper eyelids. Blepharoplasty can be done alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery procedures such as a facelift, a brow lift or laser skin resurfacing.

Your consultation

During your initial cosmetic consultation, your doctor will discuss your particular condition, your expectations, and the probable outcome of treatment. You will be shown several before and after treatment photographs of patients having similar conditions, and you will receive an explanation of your treatment. Before and after photos may be taken of the area to be treated to document your results.

The procedure

Blepharoplasty can be performed in your doctor's office, an outpatient surgical facility or a hospital. It is generally performed under local anesthesia, but can be performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon places fine incisions in the crease above each eye to correct problems of the upper eyelids. Then a thin crescent of excess skin and muscle is removed. The incisions are closed with very fine sutures. To remove the fatty deposits beneath the eyes, the incisions are placed just inside the lower eyelid. After the fat is removed, the incisions may be closed with absorbable sutures or may be left to heal naturally. When excess skin and muscle needs to be removed from the lower lids, the incisions are placed in the natural smile crease below the lashline. The procedure can take between 1 - 2 hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.

What about insurance?

Eyelid problems are common, even in younger people. Correcting eyelid problems that interfere with your vision may be covered by your health insurance. However, when eyelid surgery is performed for cosmetic reasons, it may not be covered in part or in whole by your health insurance. It is the patient's responsibility to check with their insurance provider for the information on the degree of coverage. We will be happy to answer any questions.

What about recovery?

When Dr. Zikria performs your eyelid surgery alone, and not with a facelift, it is generally done under local anesthesia. After the surgery, the area around your eye will be bruised and swollen for about 2 weeks. Patients should keep their heads up and place cold compresses on their eyes periodically. Antibiotic eye drops or ointment may be prescribed. Patients can't wear contact lenses for about 2 weeks, since the eyelids may be stiff and sore. Make-up may be worn after about 10 days. The resulting hairline scars which follow the natural contour of the eyelids tend to fade in about 2 months.

After cosmetic surgery, our patients have a softer, more youthful look to their faces. Many seem to have a new spring in their step after facing their fresher reflections in the mirror.
