What Is Blepharoplasty?

Upper blepharoplasty targets drooping upper lids to create a more rested, alert look and improved vision.

Lower blepharoplasty refines the appearance of the area below the eyes by minimizing undereye bags and indentations.

The procedures can be combined for comprehensive results. By excising excess skin, removing or repositioning displaced fat (bags), and tightening the surrounding muscles, Dr. Murphy can help you achieve a brighter, more youthful appearance.

Dr. Murphy’s Surgical Approach

In an upper blepharoplasty, Dr. Murphy makes small incisions along the natural fold of the upper eyelid to remove excess skin and fat, which helps lift and tighten the area for a clearer field of vision and a refreshed look.

During lower blepharoplasty, he makes incisions just below the lash line or inside the lower eyelid to remove or redistribute fat, which reduces puffiness and smoothes under-eye bags.

Canthopexy tightens the lower eyelid through a small incision in the designated area to tighten and raise the lower eyelids.

Dr. Murphy uses precision to ensure minimal scarring and natural-looking results, typically performing these surgeries under general anesthesia for patient comfort.

Recovery & Results

Recovery from blepharoplasty usually involves some swelling and bruising, but discomfort is typically minimal and can be managed with medication. Most patients can resume normal activities within 10 to 14 days, and the results are long-lasting. They often enhance both appearance and vision by removing visual obstructions.
