Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids. This surgery can be performed on the upper lids, the lower lids, or both.

Preparing for eyelid surgery

In preparing for eyelid surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding

Eyelid surgery may be performed in an accredited office-based surgical facility, outpatient or licensed ambulatory surgical center, or a hospital. Be sure to arrange for someone to drive you to and from surgery and to stay with you for at least the first night following surgery.
