What is blepharoplasty? Test your knowledge

EyeliftBlepharoplasty is a big, technical word for a popular surgical procedure that is most commonly known as an eyelid lift.

Do you know what it does?
Blepharoplasty can improve the look of the areas around your eyes and help restore a more youthful appearance.

Do you know how it’s done?
With a small incision in your eyelid, loose, excess skin and fat tissue is removed.

Do you know why this is done?
Removing fat deposits and excess skin can reduce bags, wrinkles and even dark circles. In addition, some people have excess skin around their eyes that actually impairs vision.

Do you know if this is for the upper or lower eyelid?
Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid, or both, depending on your unique needs.

Do you know who gets this surgery?
Eyelid lifts are popular among men and women and considered one of the best ways to help achieve a refreshed, natural look.

Do you know if you might need eyelid surgery?
If you have puffiness, bags or loose skin around your eyes that you’d like to try and improve, blepharoplasty may be a good choice for you.

Do you know how long it takes to recover?
Dr. Dunn will most likely tell you to rest at home for about a week. During week two, he will likely remove your stiches. Any puffiness or bruising to the delicate skin around your eyes is usually greatly reduced after two weeks. Within a week to 10 days post-surgery, you should expect to return to your normal activities.

Now that you know more about blepharoplasty, do you know how to get started?
