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. Learn more+

Baggy Eyelids, Patient 4
It took this man years to get up his courage to fix his droopy upper eyelids that were blocking his vision, and now he can’t believe the difference it made! Especially driving! Droopy, baggy eyelids really interfere with side vision and energy level.
Baggy Eyelids, Patient 5
This lovely woman was bothered by heavy, droopy, and baggy eyelids that were harder to keep open as the day went on. Her right eye was more droopy than the left, involving two weak muscles that needed to be fixed. Here she is before and one month after having ptosis repair (droopy muscle fixed) and blepharoplasty (baggy lid fixed). She is thrilled and can not only see better, she looks and feels younger!
Baggy Eyelids, Patient 6
Patient with very droopy upper lids, right more than left, interfering with his vision and visual functions. He felt tired all the time and had trouble concentrating by the end of the day, or reading for long periods or after a heavy meal. After eyelid surgery to lift his droopy eyelids and even them out he feels much more energized, can see better, and is very happy with how younger and more awake he looks!
Baggy Eyelids, Patient 7
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!

Ptosis Repair, Blepharospasm & Brow Lift, Patient 23
This gentleman could not keep his eyes open because of blepharospasm that got worse and worse and no longer responded to Botox®. All the spasms had stretched out his eye muscles (ptosis) and eyebrows (brow ptosis). The weight of his eyebrows was too much and he could no longer open his eyes more than a slit. Dr. Bunin performed a direct brow lift on him because he needed the hypertrophied muscles thinned and removed, did a ptosis repair and blepharoplasty on his upper eyelids, and he is so happy he can see again! for the first time in years he can keep his eyes open and can live normally again! He and his family can’t believe the difference.
