Eyelid Lifts and Blepharoplasty: Results and Expectations

An eyelid lift or a blepharoplasty is a functional and cosmetic procedure that can dramatically rejuvenate the appearance of the eyes. At Cascade Eye & Skin Centers, under the skilled hands of our oculoplastic surgeon, Aimee Lam, MD, patients can expect transformative results.


Understanding Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure aimed at improving the appearance of the eyelids. It can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids, or both. The procedure involves removing or repositioning excess tissue. It can address various concerns, including:
  • Drooping or sagging eyelids that may impair vision
  • Puffy eyelids that create a tired appearance
  • Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the eyelid
  • Bags under the eyes

Typical Results

A More Youthful and Refreshed Appearance

One of the primary benefits of blepharoplasty is a more youthful and alert appearance. By removing excess skin and fat and tightening the remaining tissue, the eyes look more open and vibrant.

Improved Vision

For those whose vision is impaired by drooping eyelids, blepharoplasty can remove these obstructions, leading to improved peripheral vision.

Long-lasting Results

While no cosmetic procedure can stop the aging process, the results of blepharoplasty are generally long-lasting. Patients can enjoy the benefits for several years.

Setting Realistic Expectations

Consultation with Dr. Aimee Lam

During your consultation, Dr. Lam will discuss your aesthetic goals, evaluate your eyelids, and explain what can realistically be achieved with the procedure.

Understanding the Healing Process

Post-surgery, patients typically experience swelling and bruising, which subsides over time. It’s important to understand that final results may take several weeks to become fully apparent.
