About Eyelid Surgery

  • You will require anesthesia. Blepharoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia along with intravenous sedation as an outpatient procedure.
  • The incisions are made in the creases of your upper eyelids and just below the lash line of the lower eyelids.
  • If only fat is to be removed from the lower eyelids, the incisions will be made inside the lower eyelids. This procedure is called Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty and is performed on patients whose major complaint is fat pockets beneath the eyelid.
