Blepharoplasty Before & After Photos

 

About Eyelift (Blepharoplasty) Surgery

Blepharoplasty or “lid lift” is surgery to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the upper or lower eyelids. As time goes by, the eyelid skin stretches and sags, leading to a droopy appearance. This can be exacerbated by seasonal allergies, manipulation of the delicate lid tissue with contact lens wear or eye makeup removal, and hereditary factors. In the lower lid, there is a layer of tissue called the septum that becomes weak over time. Once the septum weakens, like wet tissue, the fatty pads “pooch” forward, leading to a “baggy” appearance.

The goal of blepharoplasty is to gently remove the excess skin and bags.  A gentle, conservative approach is ideal to prevent a sunken or hollow appearance.  As a board certified Ophthalmologist and Oculoplastic surgeon, Dr. Lisa Bunin is a skilled expert in eye lift  surgery and can rejuvenate your eyes to a refreshed look.

Is Eyelid Surgery For You?

Are you “tired of looking tired”? Men and women who feel that the mirror does not reflect their true spirit or energy may benefit from a lid lift. If you’re ready to find out if you are a candidate for an eye lift, schedule your appointment with Dr. Lisa Bunin for a consultation. She has preformed eye lift surgery on patients from all over the Lehigh Valley including Allentown, Bethlehem, Stroudsburg, Washington, Coopersburg, Quakertown, Doyleston and others.

The eye area recovers quickly and once healed it is very difficult to even see where the surgery was preformed.

  • It is an outpatient procedure with minimal discomfort and downtime.
  • Recovery is typically prompt, with patients driving in a day or two.
  • Suture removal occurs in 7 to 10 days.
  • Contact lens wear can be resumed  in about 2 weeks.
  • Usually, one can return to a “desk job” environment with the aid of light sunglasses within a few days.
