Female Speaker: How is blepharoplasty performed?

Doctor: Blepharoplasty is a general term for upper and lower eyelid surgery to improve appearance and function. Typically, blepharoplasty is performed to address excess skin and bulging fat around the eyes. As an ocular facial plastic surgeon, I can't emphasize enough the importance of having blepharoplasty performed with an understanding of the health of the eyes and having the skills to perform the procedures necessary to accomplish this.

A significant part of my practice is performing advanced revision surgery for patients who come from all over the world. I routinely perform blepharoplasty in my Joint Commission certified operating facilities. The procedure we do are done with local anesthesia with intravenous or IV sedation.

Most of our patients return to work in less than one week and have little or no discomfort.
