As a man or woman in your 40s, you have probably begun to develop saggy, droopy upper eyelids. This type of aging around the eyes is a normal part of growing older and losing elasticity in your skin. When you have drooping eyelids, it can make you feel less confident about your appearance.

When meeting with one of our experienced facial surgeons to discuss eyelid surgery, you should ask us any questions you have on your mind. We want you to be armed with all the information possible as you decide whether to elect facial surgery. If you are unsure of what questions to ask during your consultation, consider including these ones:
Like any other surgical procedure, the blepharoplasty procedure (eyelid surgery) will require you to take some downtime to heal and recover. Each person's experience of surgical recovery is a little different, and we will make sure you are fully prepared for yours.
The results of eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) are generally long lasting. It's not uncommon for the longevity of results to vary slightly between patients, but you can expect the results of the upper eyelids to last about 5 to 7 years, and the lower eyelid results are essentially permanent.
Also known as an eye lift or blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery is intended to make the face appear younger by reducing under eye bagginess and by removing sagging skin in the upper eyelids. The surgery may also improve vision in older patients whose vision is impeded by sagging upper eyelids.
