It takes about 30 to 45 minutes to do the upper lids and about the same amount of time to do the lower lids.

This is a fairly standard blepharoplasty. The only exception is he had that little tear trough abnormality on the lower lids that allows us to tuck a little bit of the fat into the area and correct that problem. He is a young patient. The orbit has normal volume, meaning there is no pressure on the lower lid to push it down, which can be a problem in some patients and the tone of his lid margins, in particular lower margin is good and again the problem we have with upper or lower lid blepharoplasty, the big problem that tends to be a... you can see more than... and rarely is position of the lower eye lids so he is at very low risk for that so I expect he will do pretty well. It's not a great deal painful operation and he will be up and about tomorrow.

The blepharoplasty will not change the aperture of the eyes, although they may look larger because the aesthetic distractors are removed as part of the operation.
