Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Do your eyes make you look tired?

Do your eyelids look puffy, or do you have excess skin in your eyelids?

They say that the eyes are the window to the soul. But excess skin or puffiness can hide the beauty of the eyes. Cosmetic surgery of the eyelids is a popular solution.

The Quick Facts

What We Are Treating: Excess skin and fat in the eyelids

Goal of Treatment: Improved appearance and a refreshed, rejuvenated look.

Duration of Treatment: One to hours

Return to Daily Activities: After upper eyelid surgery the recovery is rather fast. Lower eyelid surgery can take a bit longer. This would depend on the extent of the procedure. Sometimes lower eyelid surgery involves a kind of cheek lift.

For A Winning Result Follow Dr. Mendes’ instructions. Don’t smoke.

How is it Done?

When performing blepharoplasty surgery, Dr. Mendes removes a strip of skin and muscle from the eyelid. Sometimes a small strip of muscle is contours, and underlying fat is conservatively removed. In the lower eyelid, surgery can sometimes be performed without a skin incision! The lower eyelid may need to be anchored at the side. Surgery can be combined with foregard and browlift, or facelift surgery.
