Look as Vivacious as You Feel With Blepharoplasty

Puffy, saggy eyes are obvious and often unwelcome indicators of the aging process. Sometimes, excessively aged eyes can cause a person to appear older and more tired than they are, making it difficult to express themselves accurately. Blepharoplasty creates a refreshed, natural-looking facial appearance by removing excess tissue from the eyelids.


Some patients may benefit most from a combination of facial rejuvenation techniques, but it is common for blepharoplasty to produce a pleasing, significant improvement on its own. Patients who undergo this procedure often feel that it not only enhances their outer appearance but also restores their confidence. It should be noted that the best candidates for blepharoplasty are in good health, have realistic expectations of the procedure, and have a positive disposition.

Benefits of Blepharoplasty

In the hands of a skilled, board-certified surgeon, blepharoplasty can produce stunning yet subtle facial rejuvenation, including:

  • Smoother, more youthful eyelids
  • Improved field of vision
  • Hidden, nearly imperceivable scarring


The entire procedure lasts about 40 minutes, and it is performed under local anesthesia. Incisions are created within the natural eyelid creases, making any resulting scars nearly invisible to the naked eye. Through these incisions, excess skin may be excised, and fat can be either removed or repositioned. Whether a patient requires skin excision, fat removal, or fat repositioning depends on the severity of their condition.  

Is Blepharoplasty Right for Me?

You may want to consider blepharoplasty if you can relate to one or more of the following eyelid concerns:

  • Excess skin that hangs over the natural fold of the upper eyelid
  • Excess upper eyelid skin that hangs over the eyelashes
  • A tired, aged appearance due to puffy eyelids
  • Under-eye bags

Are My Eyelids Aging My Appearance?

“The face is the mirror of the mind, and eyes without speaking confess the secrets of the heart.”

– St. Jerome

Upper and Lower Eyelid Lift Before and AfterSo many emotions can be communicated through our eyes. Without speaking, we tell others that we’re happy, sad, nervous, surprised, or upset. The ability to disguise our true feelings is preferred in some settings, like when playing poker or telling a white lie, but what if our eyes are constantly sending a false message about our age, mood, or health status?

What lies are your eyes telling?

Dark circles, under-eye bags, fine lines, wrinkles, and drooping upper eyelids can all make you look tired, sad, sick, and older than you actually are. With a quick procedure called blepharoplasty, Dr. Khoury can reverse these signs of aging and help you communicate your feelings accurately. Also known as the eyelid lift, blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper and lower eyelids and can also be combined with other facial procedures for an overall balanced look.

Upper Eyelid Lift

Upper Eyelid Lift Before and AfterThe upper eyelid lift addresses sagging skin of the upper eyelids that can sometimes interfere with vision and make you appear chronically sad or tired. The incisions are hidden within the folds of the eyelids and do not leave noticeable scars. The excess skin is removed, and the tissues beneath are adjusted or removed to give your entire face a more alert and refreshed appearance.

Lower Eyelid Lift

The lower eyelid lift, which can be performed alone or with the upper eyelid lift, targets under-eye bags, helps reduce dark circles, and will remove fine lines and wrinkles.

The eyes are truly the “windows to the soul” (Shakespeare), “the mirrors of the mind,” and the first place others look when they speak to you. Choosing to enhance this feature can help you appear younger, healthier, and even happier than you looked before, all while significantly improving your quality of life.
