What is Blepharoplasty?

A person's eyes are a beautiful component of the face that deserves to be seen, but sometimes an abundance of skin on top or around the eyes can produce an aging facial appearance. Plastic surgeon Dr. Mark W. Stalder uses blepharoplasty (also known as eyelid surgery) to lift and tighten the upper or lower eyelid, creating a more "alert" look. Many men and women have eyelid surgery at Stalder Plastic Surgery to eliminate saggy eyelids, improving function and appearance. Whether upper or lower, eyelid surgery creates a fresh, youthful appearance and can give you subtle yet striking improvements. If you want to rejuvenate your eyes with an eye lift to remove excess skin, contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stalder at his practice in New Orleans, LA.

How Does a Blepharoplasty Work?

General anesthesia or IV sedation will be provided, depending on the type and complex nature of the blepharoplasty. Eyelid surgery may be done on the upper eyelid alone, on the bottom portion, or with a blend of both eyelids.

  • Upper
    Upper eyelid surgery assists in reducing the loose skin that droops over the eye to create a more awakened and appealing look. An incision is usually made along the natural crease to remove tissue and fat.
  • Lower
    Lower blepharoplasty improves puffy and bulging skin under the lower eyelid. The incision is made along the lash line to allow access to remove fatty tissue, and the skin is gently lifted to allow for a flatter, smoother look. In some cases, a nonsurgical laser procedure may be applied to assist with discoloration while fillers can be used for more volume and smoothness if desired.

Blepharoplasty can last up to two hours considering whether one or both eyes are treated. After surgery, you should allow about a week to recover and rest at home. Ice packs can help reduce bruising and swelling. The results from eyelid surgery can last years, but while they are long-lasting, aging does not stop. To continue to enhance your surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments at Stalder Plastic Surgery, such as lasers, chemical peels, and fillers, can be added to create a fresh appearance.

Rejuvenate Tired-Looking Eyes

If your vision is impaired from folds of skin on the upper eyelid, or you are frustrated by bulging bags under your eyes, then upper or lower blepharoplasty at Stalder Plastic Surgery may be your answer. This treatment can help you look younger and more alert while offering a gorgeous answer to your vision impairment concerns. We invite you to contact our office in New Orleans, LA to schedule a consultation with Dr. Mark W. Stalder.

About Us

From the day I met Dr Stalder he always asked me what I wanted rather than force anything on me. I trusted the process from the start and in the course of a year, the work done to my body is unbelievable. The more I heal the more beautiful everything is. From him to his 5 star staff, they are truly some wonderful people. My breasts look amazing!!! I still can’t believe how it all came together! Anytime I had a question him and his team were there to provide the answers almost in the blink of an eye! I am so honored to have worked with Dr Stalder and his team. I will never forget you all as I continue on with my life. You all were a special part of my breast cancer journey. Waking up to Abby checking on me also warmed my heart. She’s such a sweetheart ! I love you all and pray you continue to do an amazing job with individuals dealing with cancer. You have restored my dignity and helped me to love myself again.

I have fully recovered from my Diep flap procedure and reconstructive surgery from Dr. Stalder. I could not be happier with the outcome! Initially I was nervous to go thru the surgery because my situation was a little different. I had a prophylactic mastectomy with implants about 10 years ago and after multiple implant replacement surgeries due to issues, I also had a breast implant associated lymphoma scare. I was recommended to and sought consult with Dr. Mark Stalder. Dr. Stalder was able to resolve ALL of my issues! I couldn't be happier and really have appreciated Dr. Stalder and his amazing Team, Jess and Abby! Not only do my breasts look and feel amazing, the areas where tissues was harvested also look amazing, a nice little perk :) Thank you Dr. Stalder, Abby and Jess for everything you have done for me!

I had considered having a rhinoplasty for several years but was nervous that I would come out looking like a completely different person. Additionally, I had a severely damaged septum making it difficult to breathe through one side of my nose. After meeting with Dr. Stalder and the exceptional team at Stalder Plastic Surgery I was convinced that I would be in capable hands. Dr. Stalder took the time to listen to my concerns and answered all of my questions. I am currently 6 weeks post op and I could not be happier! Dr. Stalder made the changes that I had wanted for so long while maintaining the integrity of my nose. The subtle changes didn't make me look like a different person but rather a better version of myself! I am thrilled with the results and would absolutely recommend Dr. Stalder and Stalder Plastic Surgery for all of your needs and especially if you are considering surgery. If you are looking for a plastic surgeon, you should absolutely meet with Dr. Stalder. Currently I receive Botox at Stalder Plastic Surgery and I am always pleased with the very natural looking results. The office is stunning and the staff are kind and helpful. While I am not ready for anything else right now, I know that I will not trust anyone else but Dr. Stalder for my future aesthetic needs.

I had Botox done by Dr Stalder and it has been the best Botox I’ve ever received. I’ve been to plenty of different kind of providers for Botox but Dr Stalder did the best I’ve ever had. He’s professional but also easy going and easy to talk to about what you’re looking for. Jess and the rest of the staff are great at taking care of you to help you get the appointment that works best for you and making sure you are happy with your results. I’m looking forward to more treatments here at Stalder Plastic Surgery!
