If you feel like the delicate skin around your eyes has started to make you look older, blepharoplasty may solve your problem. The eye area often shows age before other parts of the face, but this procedure can lift sagging skin and get rid of undereye bags.
How Does Blepharoplasty Work?
Blepharoplasty, otherwise known as an eyelid lift, makes eyes look brighter, more alert, and more youthful. It works by using a small, hidden incision to remove excess skin, lift sagging eyelids, remove accumulated fat, and raise the underlying muscle. People can have blepharoplasty on the upper or lower eyelids, and many choose to have the procedure on both.
Performed on the upper eyelid, this procedure makes a tiny incision hidden in the crease of the eyelid. Dr. Schalit will remove loose skin and tighten the eyelid as well as remove excess fat. This gives the eyes a more wide-open and alert appearance.
Dr. Schalit performs this procedure on the lower eyelid, where the main concern often focuses on sagging skin and undereye bags. Fat is removed from the undereye bags, loose skin is removed, and the underlying structures are lifted to make people look more rested and refreshed.

Top Three Benefits of Blepharoplasty
People see several benefits from both types of blepharoplasty. Three of the most important benefits include:
Look Awake and Alert
People will stop asking if you’ve been getting enough sleep after you have a blepharoplasty. The removal of sagging skin and under eye bags gets rid of that tired appearance.
If the appearance of your eyelids bothers you, blepharoplasty can help. Dr. Schalit can rejuvenate your eye area, so you feel better about your appearance.
Since the eyes form such an important part of the face, improving the appearance of the eye area can immediately make you look younger and more vibrant.
What is Recovery Like From Blepharoplasty?
Your eye area will look swollen and feel sore after surgery, and your vision may be blurry on the first day after the procedure. Swelling and bruising will fade after about ten days, and you can resume your normal activities after seven to ten days. Within two weeks, you can see your fully developed results.
Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
If you have sagging skin, under eye bags, or tired-looking eyelids, you may be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. You should be in overall good health and not smoke or quit before surgery.
