Blepharoplasty Eyelid Surgery
Rejuvenate Your Eyes with Eyelid Surgery
What happens to your Eyes as You age?
As you age you lose fat and bone volume and this loss can greatly age your entire face – especially in the eyes area. In addition, the eyelid skin becomes thinner, less elastic, and fine lines form.
The first area people tend to show signs of aging is around the eye. Under-eye volume loss can start as early as the late 30s and can be improved with filler. Excess upper and lower eyelid skin is another age-related change that requires surgery to improve. Eyelid surgery involves removing excess skin, and occasionally fat.
In the past, eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty) routinely removed muscle and fat, along with excess skin. It has been proven that this can lead to hollowness, a rounded appearance of the eye, and functional problems with eye closure. Dr. Bomer specializes in volume-preserving eyelid surgery. Only the excess skin is removed, and the delicate muscle beneath the skin is preserved.
Benefits of Volume preserving eyelid surgery:
- Eye shape does not change
- Functional eyelids, without loss of strength
- Faster recovery
- Can make patients look years younger
- Long-lasting results
If you have noticed any of these symptoms affecting your eye, eyelid surgery may benefit you and fulfill your cosmetic rejuvenation goals.

Frequently asked questions related to Eyelid Surgery at Rejuvent.
Blepharoplasty Surgery is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and/or fat from the upper and lower eyelid area.
There are two types of Blepharoplasty. Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty.
If your eyelids are droopy, puffy or you have excess skin sagging in the upper eyelids, then you are a candidate for upper blepharoplasty. If you have excess fat and volume under your eyes (which cannot be corrected with dermal fillers) then you are a candidate for lower eyelid surgery.
Some patients are candidates for both surgeries which can be performed by Dr. Bomer at the same time.
Yes. Dr. Bomer can perform both surgeries at the same time.
Under-eye puffiness can be corrected with dermal fillers. At Rejuvent, Dr. Bomer and Dr. Bouzoukis are experts in this procedure and achieve results comparable to the surgical results. Learn about under-eye dermal fillers injections.
Excess skin in the upper eyelid cannot be easily corrected as skin laxity and elasticity declines with aging. If you have excess drooping skin, a Blepharoplasty might be the best solution for you. Contact us for a consultation and the doctors will evaluate your eyes and give you their suggestions.
We recommend following this list before your surgery:
- One week before your surgery, avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Motrin, Aleve, or Ibuprofen), Gingko Biloba, Vitamin E, or fish oil supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding. If you require a pain remedy during this time period, it is ok to take Tylenol.
- Adding leafy greens to your diet will boost your Vitamin K and help to reduce the possibility of bruising and swelling.
- Avoid eating apples or large quantities of garlic before your surgery.
- Arnica supplements have been shown to reduce discomfort, bruising, and swelling from injectable procedures. Arnica pills may be started the day before or the day of treatment and should be continued until bruising has resolved. We carry Arnica supplements at Rejuvent and RejuventSkinCare.com
You will need a driver to take you home after surgery.
It is normal to experience soreness, bruising, swelling, tightness, and some degree of pain for the first few days following surgery. These conditions will lessen each day. Following blepharoplasty, lubricating eye drops will be prescribed to prevent dryness and protect your eyes. Excessive tearing, sensitivity to light, and double vision may be experienced immediately following the procedure. Upper eyelid incisions will be red and visible at first, and eyelids may be puffy and may feel numb for several days. Ice packs or cold compresses applied to your eyes can help reduce swelling. Pain is minimal, and stitches will be removed after one week. A skin-colored medical tape is then applied over the lateral aspect of the upper blepharoplasty incisions to support the incision for another week.
The final Eyelid Blepharoplasty results are usually seen two to three months after the surgery has been performed. For the incision to heal it usually takes a couple of months, and most of the visual swelling is usually gone in approximately one month.
