Brighten Your Eyes

At Discreet Plastic Surgery, our board-certified surgeons, Dr. Doshi and Dr. Kaufman, offer our patient-centered, cosmetic eyelid lift surgery as a safe and effective way to restore a more youthful, alert, and rested appearance to your eyes.

What Is Eyelid Surgery?

Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, is a popular cosmetic procedure that can enhance the appearance of your eyes by removing or repositioning excess skin, muscle, and fat.

Factors such as aging, sun damage, and smoking can cause your eyelids to droop, giving you a tired, aged appearance. A cosmetic eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure that can rejuvenate your eyes by removing fat, excess skin, and muscle from your upper and/or lower eyelids.

What Cosmetic Issues Does an
Eyelid Lift Address?

Specifically, an eyelid lift surgical procedure can correct drooping upper eyelids, puffy dark circles, and “bags” below the eyes that can give the appearance of tiredness or aging.

How Does Eyelid Surgery Work?

At Discreet Plastic Surgery, our team prioritizes safety and satisfaction, which is why we take meticulous care of you before, during and after your surgery.

Here’s what your eyelid lift will typically look like:

  • Before the procedure: To begin, you’ll meet with Dr. Kaufman or Dr. Doshi for a thorough consultation. Our surgeons will review your medical history, discuss your goals for the procedure, and create a personalized treatment plan. We’ll also provide detailed pre- and post-operative instructions to ensure that your recovery is smooth and comfortable.
  • During the procedure: Eyelid surgery can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids, depending on your specific concerns and goals. During the procedure, Dr. Doshi or Dr. Kaufman will carefully hide incisions within the natural creases of your eyelids to remove or reposition excess skin, muscle and fat while minimizing scarring.
  • After the procedure: Recovery from eyelid surgery typically takes 1 – 2 weeks. During this time, you may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort around your eyes. We recommend that you rest and avoid strenuous activities during this time to allow your body to heal properly. In addition to providing detailed aftercare instructions, we’ll also schedule follow-up appointment to monitor your progress and address any of your concerns.

What Are the Benefits of Getting an Eyelid Lift?

The benefits of your eyelid lift will depend on what type of surgery is required to help you meet your goals.

For example, an upper eyelid surgery can correct droopy or sagging eyelids that make you look tired and that age your appearance. On the other hand, lower eyelid surgery can address puffiness around your eyes, including the appearance of bags beneath your eyes, which can be caused by excess fat or loose skin.

Another possible benefit of eyelid surgery is that the procedure can improve vision in cases where excess skin is obstructing your field of vision.

In general, eyelid surgery provides long-lasting results. While the natural aging process will continue, you can expect to see a significant improvement in the appearance of your eyes that can last for years, increasing your confidence and self-esteem as a result.
