Your eyes don’t just let you see the beauty of the world – they also let the world see you, which is why it’s perfectly understandable to want them at their best. As we age, our eyelids can become droopy or puffy, closing off that window just a bit. But that can be reversed with a blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery. At Rocheford Plastic Surgery, this surgery is one of our specialties.

What is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that can help improve the appearance of your upper eyelids. It’s perfect for those who are looking to get rid of extra skin,and correct droopy eyelids.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Good candidates for blepharoplasty are people in generally good health who have realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcomes. If you experience drooping or puffy eyelids, eyes that look tired despite adequate rest, or have excess skin, blepharoplasty may be the perfect treatment for you.

The Rocheford Plastic Surgery Approach to Blepharoplasty

Here at Rocheford Plastic Surgery, we pride ourselves on our personalized approach. Our lead board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Heather Rocheford, is an expert in performing blepharoplasty. She takes her time to understand your goals, examine your eye area, and develop a tailored plan that suits your unique needs.

To start the procedure, we’ll administer general anesthesia to ensure you’re comfortable. From there, Dr. Rocheford will make incisions that will be hidden in the natural eye creases. With upper eyelid surgery, she will remove excess skin and fat from the upper eyelid and tighten the muscles. Incisions will be closed with stitches that will be removed a week after surgery.

Recovering from Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is an outpatient surgery, so you can return home the same day. Initially, you can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications and cold compresses. Most patients can return to their normal activities within a week or two following the procedure. At Rocheford Plastic Surgery, we provide personalized aftercare to ensure your recovery process goes as smoothly as possible.
