BIGGER, CLEARER, AND MORE GORGEOUS EYES LIKE TWINKLING CRYSTALS
One of the first areas of the face to exhibit signs of aging is the area around the eyes. Under-eye bags and sagging upper eyelids that come with age can be corrected through cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty. This relatively minor cosmetic surgery procedure can refresh the appearance of the face and leave it looking years younger. Use the information provided below to learn more about eyelid surgery cost, benefits, and potential risks.

WHAT IS BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery dramatically improves the appearance of tired, droopy eyes. This is accomplished by removing excess skin and pockets of fat from the upper and lower eyelids. Many patients combine blepharoplasty with alternative treatments such as brow lift to eliminate drooping eyebrows, and various cosmetic dermal fillers to treat crow’s feet.
- Ideal candidates for blepharoplasty include those patients who have:Puffy upper eyelids: the procedure can smooth the appearance of under-eye bags or puffiness.
- Tired looking eyes: Eyelid surgery can address the features that cause you to appear older and more tired than you truly are.
- Excess upper eyelid skin: surgeons can tighten and remove extra eyelid skin.
A WONDERFUL EYE’S GOLDEN RATIO
It’s not just the size of the eye that is important. It’s when the eye snugly fits the proportion of the face that it appears most natural and beautiful.

The ideal eye will have symmetrical eye lengths as well as length between eyes. This length ranges from 30mm-34mm.
The inner corner of the eyes should make a vertical line with the sides of the nose. The outer corners of the eyes should make a diagonal line with the corresponding nose side.
The outer corners of the eyes should be slightly raised in relation to the eyes being on a level plane.
If you are considering eyelid surgery, your first step should be to contact Thea Beauty Solutions to schedule an initial consultation with our surgeon. During the consultation, our surgeon will work with you to establish realistic expectations about the results of your blepharoplasty procedure. The surgery will be explained in great detail so as not to leave any question or concern you have unaddressed. Depending on your needs and our surgeon’s observations, additional facial procedures such as a brow lift or chin implants may be recommended.
Though eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) results vary from patient to patient, most are pleased with the overall change in their appearance. For many, the procedure is about looking younger and more alert. For others, eyelid surgery is a welcome option for restoring vision that has become obscured.
HOW WILL I LOOK AFTER SURGERY?
Immediately following eyelid surgery, the incision sites will look red and irritated and there may be some minor bumpiness. The scarring from the blepharoplasty procedure should flatten in time and become inconspicuous. There will be some swelling and discoloration around your eyes during the eyelid surgery recovery process, but this will fade as you begin to look and feel better with each day. The severity of bruising and swelling differs from person to person; however, it typically goes away within a week.
Following this period of recovery, our eyelid surgery will yield some pleasing results. The wrinkles and heaviness of your eyelids will be eliminated or reduced by the blepharoplasty procedure. Eyes that had once looked aged and tired will appear brighter and more alert.
WILL THERE BE SCARRING FROM BLEPHAROPLASTY?
Thea Beauty Solutions surgeon will make incisions in the folds of the eyelids to hide any potential scarring.
It is recommended that you avoid rubbing the area for approximately six weeks to avoid damaging the tender new tissue. Other patients choose to conceal any apparent scarring from blepharoplasty by applying makeup. Despite the scarring, many patients find eyelid surgery to be worth the price.
The results of eyelid surgery generally last for years. For some, the positive effects of their blepharoplasty procedure are permanent, allowing them to enjoy a lifetime of youthful-looking eyes.
Most patients at Thea Beauty Solutions are pleased with their eyelid surgery results and the youthful enhancement that blepharoplasty can provide. After having the opportunity to see what our eyelid surgery alone can do for their appearance, many individuals wish to complement these changes with other procedures, including the brow lift and facelift.
