A Rejuvenated Outlook
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a popular procedure at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Reston, VA. Our plastic surgeons perform this procedure on men and women who wish to improve the signs of aging that appear around the eyes. Blepharoplasty can be done on the upper and/or lower eyelids to rejuvenate the skin, fat, and/or muscle. The result is a more refreshed and revitalized look.
Look Younger and Happier
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a highly customizable procedure that effectively addresses various visible signs of aging on both the upper and lower eyelids. The surgery entails the removal and recontouring of fat deposits, conservative removal of excess skin, and the tightening of the skin and muscles. By precisely sculpting the eyelid area during a blepharoplasty Reston patients can achieve remarkable cosmetic benefits, resulting in a more refreshed and youthful overall facial appearance. During the procedure, incision scars are strategically placed within the natural creases of the eyelids, inside the eyelids, or along the lash line, ensuring they remain discreetly hidden.
This meticulous approach allows for the restoration of the natural contour of the upper or lower eyelid, helping to create a more defined and youthful appearance. The removal of excess skin and tightening of the muscles contribute to a brighter and more energized look. Additionally, eyelid surgery addresses puffiness around the eyes, leading to a smoother and more rejuvenated contour above and below the eyes.
A Blepharoplasty can be performed as a standalone procedure or in combination with other facial plastic surgery treatments, such as a facelift or brow lift, for comprehensive facial rejuvenation. The versatility of blepharoplasty allows it to be tailored to individual needs, ensuring that each patient achieves their desired outcome. Enhancing the appearance of the eyelids can significantly impact one's overall facial aesthetics, restoring a youthful and vibrant look.

Before a Blepharoplasty Reston plastic surgeons surgeon will discuss your specific aesthetic goals and explain your personalized surgical plan in detail.
The incision for the upper eyelids will be carefully placed within the natural crease, while the lower lid incision can be made inside the eyelid or along the lower lash line. These strategic incision locations allow for the precise removal of excess skin and fat deposits, adjustment of musculature, and tightening of the skin. It's worth noting that eyelid surgery is typically an outpatient procedure, and you should be able to return home on the same day.
To promote optimal recovery after eyelid surgery, it's recommended to apply ice packs to the eyes and keep your head elevated. Most Reston Blepharoplasty patients can return to work within a week, but strenuous activities should be avoided for a few weeks to minimize complications. Your surgeon will provide personalized post-operative instructions and exercises for a smooth recovery. Expect to see the full results of your procedure within three to six months.
The results of an eyelid lift can last for many years after surgery, depending on individual factors such as the aging process and whether both upper and lower blepharoplasty were done. To maintain a rejuvenated appearance for longer, it is recommended to take measures like using sun protection and avoiding smoking, which can reduce future skin laxity. By following these guidelines, you can extend the longevity of your Blepharoplasty results.
Yes, in some cases, a Blepharoplasty can improve vision by addressing droopy upper eyelids that obstruct the field of vision. This condition, known as ptosis, can cause functional vision impairment. During a consultation, your surgeon can evaluate your specific situation and determine whether eyelid surgery can help improve both the aesthetic appearance and functional aspects of your eyelids.
Blepharoplasty is generally safe and effective for individuals who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations. However, it is important to have a consultation with a qualified surgeon who can assess your individual case and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. Factors such as pre-existing eye conditions, medical history, and specific goals will be taken into consideration to ensure the best possible outcome.
The incisions made during a Blepharoplasty are carefully placed to minimize the visibility of scars. Incisions for an upper Blepharoplasty are typically hidden within the natural creases of the eyelid, while those for a lower Blepharoplasty may be placed on the inside of the eyelid or along the lower lash line. Over time, the scars tend to fade and become less noticeable, especially when proper care is taken during the healing process.
