Blepharoplasty Q & A

What is blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is surgery to remove extra skin and fat from the eyelids. Dr. Madni performs blepharoplasty on both the upper and lower eyelids. This type of plastic surgery can rejuvenate your eyes as you age and, in some cases, has functional benefits as well. 

When might I need blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty might be right for you if you have sagging or baggy eyelid skin or bulges of fat in your eyelids. The type of surgery you need depends on your concerns and goals.

Candidates for upper blepharoplasty

Upper blepharoplasty restores the upper eyelids to their original position. That can eliminate puffy and sagging skin and show off your eyes better. Droopy upper eyelids can also interfere with your vision, so this surgery can also have functional benefits. 

Candidates for lower blepharoplasty

Lower blepharoplasty restores the lower lids, correcting baggy lower eyelids and unsightly bulges of fat under the eyes. This procedure provides a more youthful appearance.


If you’re unhappy with your upper and lower lids or the overall appearance of your eye area, Dr. Madni can perform a combination surgery to address both. 


Also, your age doesn’t rule you out. In the past, most people who had blepharoplasty were 50 or older, but an increasing number of younger people are also opting for the surgery today.


In general, if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your upper or lower lids or if drooping eyelids affect your eyesight, you could be a good candidate for blepharoplasty. 

How does blepharoplasty work?

The process varies with the type of repair you need, but it’s usually an outpatient surgery. 

Upper blepharoplasty 

With upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Madni creates an incision along your eyelid fold and removes extra skin and fat.

Lower blepharoplasty

With lower blepharoplasty, Dr. Madni creates an incision slightly beneath your eyelash line to remove extra skin and fat. If only fat needs to be removed, he may make an incision inside the lower lid to hide the scar. 

With his specialized plastic surgery skills, Dr. Madni delivers beautiful results that his patients love. Book your consultation online or call the office of Tarik Madni, MD, today.
