One of the most popular surgeries for facial rejuvenation is eyelid surgery, often called blepharoplasty. The reason for its popularity are the dramatic effect it can have on your appearance with relatively little down time and often does not require general anesthesia. Often times surgery can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids at the same time. Or eyelid surgery can be combined with other cosmetic procedures for an even more dramatic change. Dr. Albright is trained to assess and appropriately treat your facial aging needs with the most appropriate and effective techniques.

eyelid Surgery FAQ’s

Will eyelid surgery improve my vision?

Upper eyelid surgery can improve your vision if your vision is blocked by a droopy, or 'ptotic', upper eyelid. This is assessed on physical exam and may require formal visual field testing by an ophthalmologist prior to surgery for some insurers.

What is the typical recovery like after eyelid surgery?

Eyelid surgery recovery depends on what surgical techniques were utilized to rejuvenate your eyelids. Dr. Albright and his staff will help you plan for your recovery. Most patients will have swelling and bruising immediately after surgery, and can even develop a "black eye". Patients should plan for this in their postoperative recovery. Typically it is about 1-2 weeks before one can be presentable in public with make-up covering the bruising. The swelling is more difficult to mask, but will have largely resolved by about 2 months after surgery. Final results are achieved when swelling is completely resolved (3-5 months), and scars have matured (8-12 months).
