Eyelid Surgery in Boston, MA
Plastic surgery of the eyelids, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove drooping eyelids or puffy bags under the eyes, both of which can make your face look older and more tired than you feel. Blepharoplasty can take years off your appearance by opening up your eye area to give your face a younger, fresher look.
Blepharoplasty can be performed on either the upper or lower lids, or they can be done at the same time, depending on your requirements and goals. Tiny incisions are made along the natural lines of your eyelids, through which excess fat, skin and muscle are removed. These incisions are then closed with fine sutures. Blepharoplasty usually requires only local anesthesia. Recovery includes some bruising and swelling that can last up to two weeks. Vigorous exercise is limited for several weeks after the surgery.
As with any cosmetic procedure at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center, every blepharoplasty is customized to the patient’s needs and we encourage you to come in for a personalized consultation with our Plastic Surgeon to define your needs and help you to achieve your goals.
