Eyelid Surgery

More commonly referred to as an eyelid lift, this procedure aims to restore a more youthful appearance to your eyes through two different approaches. With a traditional blepharoplasty, incisions are made on upper and lower lids. With a transconjunctival blepharoplasty, only one incision is made inside the lower lid, where fat can be removed but excess skin cannot. If you are not ready to go under the knife, chemical peels and laser resurfacing are other options for tightening the skin around your eyes.

If you look in the mirror and feel years older than you are, allow our doctors to suggest a procedure or treatment that will help you regain your image. After a consultation, we’ll be better able to customize a plan suited to your needs and wants. Deeper wrinkles are better treated with laser resurfacing or Botox.

What to Expect

Eyelid surgery is performed at a surgical center in Metairie, LA on an outpatient basis. This facility is centrally located and is easily accessible to our patients from Houma, LA or New Orleans, LA. You will need someone to drive you home and take care of you, as your vision will likely be blurry and your eyes will be swollen. While the blurriness and swelling are normal and temporary, severe pain, loss of vision, and protruding eyeballs are not. If any of these occur, please call the doctor immediately.

Stitches will be removed in four to seven days, and the swelling and bruising associated with the procedure can last for several weeks. You’ll likely need to take some time off of work to let your body heal, and you can begin to wear makeup after the stitches are removed.
