Proven Techniques, Outstanding Results

This procedure removes fat and lax skin from the upper and lower eyelids to eliminate:

  • Excess skin obscuring the natural folds of the upper eyelids
  • Loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids, often impairing vision
  • A puffy appearance to the upper eyelids, making the eyes look tired
  • Excess skin and fine, "crepe paper" wrinkles of the lower eyelids
  • Bags and dark circles under the eyes
  • Lower eyelid droopiness

Blepharoplasty With a Facial Plastic Surgery Specialist

In addition to removing excess tissues from the eyelids, Dr. Gross will make necessary adjustments to the eyelid muscles for smoother, long-lasting results. A refined procedure called transconjunctival blepharoplasty, or TCB, allows him to perform lower lid blepharoplasty without using any sutures or stitches. This leads to a quicker recovery and no visible suture line.

Dr. Gross may recommend a forehead lift for patients with an upper eyelid condition accompanied by sagging of the eyebrows. He may also suggest BOTOX® Cosmetic or laser resurfacing procedures to smooth crow's-feet or other fine wrinkles. To treat circles beneath the eyes caused by dark pigmentation, Dr. Gross may recommend fillers such as Restylane® or RADIESSE®, or a fat transfer. Other options for rejuvenation around the eyes include prescription strength bleaching cream or a light chemical peel.

For best results, Dr. Gross often combines eyelid surgery with eyebrow lifting using transbleph brow lift techniques, endoscopic forehead lift, and Endotine® products or other helpful adjuncts such as BOTOX, a TCA chemical peel, or laser peels such as DOT CO2 or Fraxel®.

A Smooth Recovery

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure at Primera Surgery Center. Upper blepharoplasty takes place under local anesthesia and oral sedation. When performed together, upper and lower blepharoplasty call for light general anesthesia, with a comfortable, easy recovery.

Temporary side effects include discomfort, bruising, swelling, and dryness. Patients can generally resume reading after 2 to 3 days and driving after 7 days. Most patients can resume work after 7 to 10 days, wearing contact lenses after 2 weeks, and strenuous activities and drinking alcoholic beverages after 3 weeks. Results can last 10 years or more.

"Blepharoplasty is one of the most gratifying plastic surgery procedures. The eyelid area is also the most common area of need for both men and women."
