Laser Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is a surgical technique used to improve the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. In the upper eyelid, excessive skin can produce large folds that if extreme can actually compromise the line-of-sight. There may also be bulging of orbital fat pads producing a puffy look. In the lower eyelid, bulging fat pads are usually the main problem.

In laser blepharoplasty, the CO2 laser is used as a surgical instrument in place of the traditional scalpel blade.

Candidates For A Blepharoplasty

The best candidate for eyelid surgery are men and women who are physically healthy and have realistic expectations. Any individual that has bulges, bags or drooping lids will see significant results after Laser Eyelid Lift Surgery.

Procedure

The length of the Blepharoplasty procedure depends on whether both lower and upper eyelids are treated. The average treatment time is 90 – 120 minutes. Upper and lower eyelids can be treated together or done separately. An anesthetic is used during the procedure and most patients experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. Post-operative pain is mild; most patients require only Tylenol and ice packs to ease any pain or discomfort.

Benefits of Laser Blepharoplasty include:

  • Vibrant, youthful eyes.
  • Improved visual field (if upper lid sagging was impairing vision)
  • A more alert and energetic appearance.
