The Benefits of Getting Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty can provide several aesthetic and functional benefits, including:

  • You can appear less “tired,” thanks to the removal of sagging or drooping skin.
  • You can reduce the appearance of heavy bags just beneath the eyes.
  • You may experience an improvement in your peripheral vision.
  • You may also minimize the development of wrinkles and lines along the forehead.
  • You can pair your eyelid surgery with a facelift or brow lift for optimal results.

Am I a Good Candidate?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Ducic will verify that you are a good candidate for a safe and successful blepharoplasty.


Blepharoplasty is Great If:

  • You are in good health overall.
  • You wish to eliminate signs of aging around the eyes.
  • You have talked with Dr. Ducic and have clear, reasonable expectations.

How Old Do I Have to Be?

There is no age restriction for blepharoplasty, though patients under 18 need consent from a parent or guardian.


Taking the First Steps

You will meet with Dr. Ducic in a relaxed, confidential consultation area to discuss your aesthetic goals, discuss possible treatment options, and develop a personalized plan that matches your objectives. Dr. Ducic will also take your full medical history, ensuring you qualify for eyelid surgery.

The Blepharoplasty Process Explained

Depending on your aesthetic goals, you may have blepharoplasty performed on your upper or lower eyelids, or both. Dr. Ducic will administer general anesthesia first, which promotes your comfort throughout the procedure. 

Upper Blepharoplasty  

An incision is carefully made along the natural fold of the upper eyelid, allowing for the removal and reshaping of excess skin and fat tissue. This procedure effectively reduces sagging and puffiness in the upper eye area.

Lower Blepharoplasty 

Typically, an incision is made inside the eyelid, remaining concealed. Dr. Ducic will remove excess fat deposits and, if necessary, create a small incision beneath the lashes addressing loose skin. For older patients or those with loose eyelid skin, he may use a canthus suspension technique to prevent laxity post-surgery.

Recovery and Aftercare

After the procedure, you may experience swelling, bruising, and irritation around the eyes. To alleviate these symptoms, use prescribed pain medication and ensure sufficient rest. While many patients can resume work approximately a week post-surgery, it’s advisable to refrain from strenuous activities and exercise for a few weeks.


Other Considerations

Can Blepharoplasty Be Performed in Combination With Other Procedures?

Depending on your needs, you can combine blepharoplasty with a facelift, a neck lift, and/or injectable fillers. Some patients even combine eyelid surgery with breast augmentation, since both procedures require general anesthesia.

How Long Do the Results Last?

The results of blepharoplasty can be very long-lasting, especially if you maintain a generally healthy lifestyle and carefully adhere to post-surgical instructions.
