As we age, the delicate skin around the eyes can become puffy and wrinkled, causing the eyes to appear tired. Eyelid surgery can have dramatic rejuvenating effects simply by removing the excess skin and trimming or repositioning the fat around the eyes, restoring a more youthful look. Patients of all ages can benefit from eyelid surgery. Blepharoplasty surgery may be combined with laser resurfacing, forehead lift and many non-invasive treatments to produce optimal results.

Fortunately, cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can help to turn back the clock and restore a youthful look in your face. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelids and address different concerns, such as drooping eyelids, wrinkles, and bags under the eyes. At Adoro Medical Spa in Severna Park, MD, we offer cosmetic eyelid surgery to help you achieve the youthful look you desire.
What is Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery?
Cosmetic eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat from your eyelids. It can be performed on the upper, lower, or both eyelids. With age, the muscles supporting the eyelids weaken and stretch, causing skin and fat to accumulate above and below the eyes. This can lead to sagging eyebrows, droopy upper lids, and bags under the eyes. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can correct these issues and give you a more youthful appearance and improved self-confidence.
Why Consider Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
There are many reasons why you might consider cosmetic eyelid surgery. For some people, excess skin and fat around the eyelids can make them look tired or older than they are. Cosmetic eyelid surgery can help to restore a more youthful appearance. For others, cosmetic eyelid surgery can correct vision problems caused by the position of the eyelids.
Several factors can contribute to the need for cosmetic eyelid surgery, including genetics, sun exposure, and squinting. If you often find yourself rubbing or pulling at your eyelids, this can also damage the skin and lead to sagging. More factors that can contribute are the following:
- Not getting enough sleep
- Using the wrong skincare products
- Being too aggressive when removing eye makeup
If you are considering this type of surgery, you must consult with us to discuss your goals and expectations. We can help you decide if cosmetic eyelid surgery is right for you.
Benefits of Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Quick Recovery Time
Another benefit of cosmetic eyelid surgery is its relatively quick recovery time. Most people can return to normal activities within a week or two after surgery. Additionally, there is usually minimal scarring after surgery.
Safe and Effective Procedure
Cosmetic eyelid surgery is generally considered a safe and effective procedure with few risks.
Improves Your Appearance
One of the primary benefits of cosmetic eyelid surgery is that it can improve your appearance. If you have droopy or sagging eyelids, surgery can help to give you a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Additionally, if you have excess skin or fat on your eyelids that is causing you to look tired or older than you are, surgery can help to correct this.
Enhances Your Vision
Another benefit of cosmetic eyelid surgery is that it can enhance your vision. If your eyelids are drooping or sagging, they may be obstructing your field of vision. Surgery can help to lift the eyelids and improve your vision.
Reduces Eye Discomfort
In addition to improving your appearance and vision, cosmetic eyelid surgery can also reduce eye discomfort. If you have excess skin or fat on your eyelids that is causing irritation or pain, surgery can help to remove this and provide relief.
Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery – What to Expect
Before you decide to undergo cosmetic eyelid surgery, it is essential to consult with us. During your consultation, we will evaluate the appearance of your eyelids and discuss your desired outcome. If you have any questions or concerns about cosmetic eyelid surgery, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us today.
The surgery is typically done using a Co2 laser under sedation, though occasionally, general anesthesia may be necessary. The laser beam vaporizes tissue and seals small blood vessels, resulting in less bleeding and swelling. This makes the surgery faster and easier for us, with a reduced risk of scarring for you. Recovery time is also shorter due to reduced trauma and discomfort. Our eyelid rejuvenation method also allows you to be released to rest at home later the same day.
Most people report excellent cosmetic results after eyelid cosmetic surgery. However, you should expect and be aware of several things during your recovery to ensure the best possible outcome.
After cosmetic eyelid surgery, it is normal to experience some bruising and swelling. These side effects should resolve within the first week. To prevent bleeding, infection, or excessive swelling, minimal restrictions are placed on exercise, bending, and heavy lifting for one week following surgery. Sutures are removed 9 or 10 days after cosmetic eyelid surgery when the wounds are completely healed. Results can be evident within 4-6 weeks as the last of the swelling disappears.
