Eyelid Lift

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both. It also gives a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert. We often have patient complain that no matter how much rest they get they still appear tired. Some patients express the concern that they always look angry. Undergoing eyelid surgery allows you to maintain a natural appearance and many patients often express their result as “refreshed and rejuvenated.”



How Do You Know If You’re a Candidate

Whether the concern is excess skin and/or puffiness on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both, the blepharoplasty procedure is a minimally invasive procedure to help rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes. Upon your evaluation with Dr. Leverett he will review your concerns and determine which procedure will give you the results you desire. Often patients come in to discuss a blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) with concern of excess upper eyelid skin and upon evaluation determine that the skin is due to the aging process of the brow. By returning the eyebrow to its natural position it corrects most, and in some cases all, of the excess skin.

Your Surgery

Most patients have breast surgery using local IV sedation, allowing for a quick recovery and minimal post-surgical nausea. The procedure is performed on an out-patient basis.

Incisions and Scarring

Eyelid Surgery is performed on an out-patient basis and can often be done under Local IV Sedation. In some cases if we are addressing only the upper eyelids it can be done in our in-office surgical suite under local.


Patients will experience some bruising and swelling immediately following the procedure and the swelling will reduce in a matter of days. The eyelid sutures are removed 4-5 days following the surgery. Our patients start anti-bruising remedies prior to surgery to reduce the bruising and often use topical products after surgery. Most experience discomfort for a few days and return to their routine in 5-10 days.
