Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, can rejuvenate the appearance of wrinkled and droopy eyelids as well as get rid of puffiness along the lower eyelids. Remington Plastic Surgery offers blepharoplasty for patients in Kirkland.
What Is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty eliminates excess skin and fat around the eyelids resulting in a refreshed, youthful appearance. An incision in a natural skin fold of the upper eyelid or just below the eyelash margin of the lower eyelid is used to trim extra skin and remove the fat producing the bulging (“bags” or “pads). It is critical to only remove the appropriate amount of each to have a beautiful natural result.

What to Expect from Your Blepharoplasty
The sutures are placed under the skin to have a very inconspicuous closure. Sometimes a reinforcement of the lower eyelid is necessary for a more youthful appearance. Plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Brad Remington usually performs blepharoplasty under intravenous sedation/local anesthesia or a general anesthetic of about 1-2 hours duration.
Recovering from Blepharoplasty
Recovery is usually ten to fourteen days, and most patients plan to be off work for about a week. Your eyelids look rejuvenated, refreshed and years younger.
