*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
In Omaha, blepharoplasty removes excess skin of the upper eyelids and bags of the lower eyelids, resulting in a refreshed, more alert appearance. Specifically, it treats:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or impairs vision
- Fatty deposits that cause puffiness
- Bags and dark circles under the eyes
During your consultation, your doctor will perform a full examination to determine if you are a good candidate for a surgery eyelid. You’ll also be able to visualize realistic surgical results using our state-of-the-art computer imaging system. Although images are no assurance of results, this will give you a good idea of what eyelid surgery can do for you. Sometimes, our doctors discover that patients are better suited for less-invasive procedures like injectables that smooth out wrinkles and plump up the skin. But, for individuals with more advanced signs of aging, eyelid surgery is the most effective way to recapture a more youthful look.
YOUR BLEPHAROPLASTY PROCEDURE
Blepharoplasty in Omaha, Nebraska is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. For the upper eyelids, an incision is placed in the crease of the lid to remove excess fat and tighten the skin. For the lower eyelids, the incision is placed underneath the eyelashes or on the inside of the eyelid. Placing the incisions within the natural structure of the lids allows our surgeons to conceal scarring.
Many of our patients add complementary procedures to their eyelid surgery including facelift to tighten the jaw line and neck or brow lift to smooth deep furrows and frown lines of the forehead. Combining procedures is an effective way to optimize facial rejuvenation.

ENJOYING YOUR RESULTS
Blepharoplasty recovery is relatively painless, and bruising and swelling are usually minimal. One week after surgery, you will have a follow-up appointment to check on your healing and remove any stitches. At that time, most patients can return to normal activities, although vigorous exercise should be delayed for a month. Most patients enjoy full results within three to five weeks.
