Are You Sick Of Constantly Looking Tired Or Fatigued, Thanks To Drooping Eyelids?
Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) is a surgical procedure designed to correct the appearance of sagging and drooping upper and lower eyelids. The main goal of the surgery is to help patients appear well-rested, younger, and more alert. In some severe cases, an eyelid lift can even help restore a patient’s vision, as sagging eyelid skin may have prevented some of their eyesight. The eyelid lift is an excellent choice for patients who have lost skin laxity as a result of aging, and want to look as well-rested and alert as they did when they were younger.
How Does Blepharoplasty Work?
The eyelid lift is performed by making small incisions into key areas of the eyelid (usually in the fold of the upper eyelid or in the inner lining of the lower eyelid). These incisions allow Dr. Keusch to access sagging or heavy eyelid tissues. Contouring of the eyelid may reduce heavy fat pockets as well as position the lids in a more ideal way. Laser resurfacing of the lower eyelid may also be performed at the same session to reduce shadows and give a smoother skin texture.
Who Is a Good Candidate For Eyelid Surgery?
You’re a good candidate for an eyelid lift if you have sagging or drooping upper or lower eyelids. Most candidates feel that their eyelids make them look constantly sleepy or fatigued, even if they’re getting a good night’s sleep. The ideal candidate should be a nonsmoker who is committed to continuing with a healthy lifestyle.

What Results Will I See?*
Patients may see their results right away, especially if eyelid sagging was particularly pronounced. Patients should expect noticeable swelling and bruising over the course of a few weeks. Once the swelling and bruising have gone down, patients will see their optimal results, which may include younger, smoother, and well-rested eyes. Some patients may even be able to enjoy their full field of vision again!
During the first week of recovery, you should expect minimal discomfort, although some blurriness may be present. We recommend arranging for care at home, as you will have restrictions while you’re recovering. You may be able to return to work in about a week, depending on Dr. Keusch’s approval. The majority of swelling and bruising should be gone at around the six-week mark, although minor swelling may still be present for several months after.
Throughout your recovery, you’ll have regular check-ins with Dr. Keusch to ensure your recovery is successful.
