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

This treatment can help you look younger and more alert while offering a gorgeous answer to your vision impairment concerns.

I had a double mastectomy with implants at Ochsner in 2021/2022. Post-surgery, I had chronic pain and my breasts were extremely hard and deformed. I was told for months that “It will get better” or “Give it a few more months”; however, the pain and discomfort never went away and I felt dismissed and unheard from my treatment team at Ochsner. I found Dr. Stalder through an internet search and made an appointment for consultation. Around October of 2022, we first met in his office where I voiced my symptoms and complaints and Dr. Stalder gave me what he thought my diagnosis was: capsular contracture. I thought he was crazy as my own plastic surgeon from Ochsner never once mentioned those words and Stalder had not even examined me. When I left, I searched capsular contracture on the internet and found that all of the photos showing this looked just like my breasts. I quickly booked the surgery with Dr. Stalder. Dr. Stalder performed my explant and flap surgery in January of 2023. I was told that I would likely need someone to stay with me for at least a week post-surgery. However, I was able to return home alone with friends to check on me for any needs. I went back to work in four weeks (six weeks is usually recommended). My second surgery to “smooth everything out and rearrange my nipples” was in June 2023. It was a same-day surgery and I was back to work in six days. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dr. Stalder’s office. From Jessica at the front desk to Abbie (his PA) and most of all Dr. Stalder. He knows what he’s doing and his precision is excellent. He saved me from chronic pain and the thought that my breasts were always going to be deformed after my mastectomy. I would absolutely recommend him over and over again.
