Blepharoplasty Before & After Photos
About Eyelift (Blepharoplasty) Surgery
Eye-lift 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. Learn more+

This patient came to Dr. Bunin about a year ago. At the time she told Dr. Bunin that she wasn’t really feeling good about herself and felt she needed a change. She first had eye-lift Blepharoplasty to remove the big black bags under her eyes. Next she had Sculptra to add lost volume due to aging back in her face.

Patient had very droopy eyelids. The eye-lid surgery made such a big difference. He said before the surgery he had no eyelids and now he does. He is very grateful for the job Dr. Bunin did.
This lovely woman complained of very heavy, droopy upper eyelids interfering with her vision and daily functions, especially reading. By the end of the day she couldn’t keep her eyes open, especially after eating a heavy meal or having a glass of wine, and often would try to hold her lids open with her fingers. This had gradually gotten worse over time, and she always felt tired. On examination not only did she have very baggy eyelids, but she had weak muscles (droopy lids) under the bags, and her very droopy eyebrows were pushing her eyelids down, so all three had to be addressed. After brow lift, ptosis repair, and blepharoplasty, she can see so much better, has much more energy, and loves how much younger she looks! And she is amazed by how much more she can see to the sides without having to turn her head!
