What to Expect During Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is done in our office under local anesthesia and oral medications, or on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia:

  • The incisions are made where the natural crease should be in the upper lids and below the lash line in the lower lids
  • Excess fat and skin are removed. If only excess fat is present in the lower lids, it may be removed through an incision inside the lower lids with no external incision or scar (trans-conjunctival blepharoplasty)
  • After surgery, all sutures are usually removed within five days
  • Initial mild discomfort is easily controlled with oral medication
  • Bruising and sensitivity to light last at least a week or two
  • Swelling progressively disappears over several weeks
  • Eye makeup can be used shortly after sutures are removed
  • Contact lenses can be worn when comfortable, which is usually within three to seven days
