Eyelid Surgery

If you are tired of looking tired or having others tell you to get some rest, it might be time to consider eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty. Our Lexington and Louisville, KY patients at CaloAesthetics® Plastic Surgery Center choose this procedure because it can make a dramatic improvement without extensive incisions or downtime.

To learn more about eyelid surgery and other facial cosmetic procedures, request a consultation with Dr. Calobrace or Dr. Mays, or call (502) 899-9979 to schedule your visit.

Improvements From Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Calobrace and Dr. Mays personalize each blepharoplasty to the unique needs of the patient. Improvements may include one or more of the following:

  • Lifting drooping upper and lower eyelids

About Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure in our on-site surgical suite. This procedure lasts 1 to 2 hours and is usually performed with the patient under local or IV sedation. Eyelid surgery is a highly detailed procedure that requires the surgeon to make careful incisions and corrections. The procedure may involve removing or repositioning fat, removing excess skin, and altering muscles. Incisions are very fine and hidden within the natural folds and creases of the eyelids.

What to Expect During Recovery

Healing rates after blepharoplasty vary from person to person. In general, expect temporary discomfort, tightness of the lids, or swelling. Temporary dryness of the eyes and burning may also occur. Bruising may last for 2 to 3 weeks.

Return to Work

Patients are typically ready to return to work in 7 to 10 days but should limit strenuous activity for 3 weeks or more.

Other Things to Know

Results from eyelid surgery are typically long-lasting. Although surgery will not halt the aging process, it will create a lasting improvement that continues to keep you looking younger than your chronological age.
