Eye Lid Surgery

Blepharoplasty procedure aims at removing the skin and or fat from the upper and or lower eyelids to get rid of the saggy skin, tired appearance and puffy eyelids giving a youthful and rejuventated look.

Additional Facts

Who is a good candidate for Eye Lid Surgery?

Patients with excess and saggy skin of the eyelids. Patients with puffy eyelids that make them look tired or older.

What are Eye Lid Surgery contraindications?

We recommend avoiding the procedure in severe or uncontrolled systemic diseases, connective tissue disease, malignancy, unrealistic expectations, local skin pathology and pregnancy.

Note: A contraindication is a condition or factor that serves as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would cause the patient.

How is this procedure performed?

The incision for upper blepharoplasty is created along the skin crease of the upper eyelid.

The incision for lower blepharoplasty is created internally (transconjunctival), however, in some cases, the incision might be placed externally below the eyelash line in case of severe skin laxity.

How long does the effect last?

The procedure offers long term rejuvenation of the eyelids, however, it is important to remember that aging is an ongoing process and patients results may vary based on many factors including genetics and skin integrity.

What should I expect during recovery?

Initial discomfort is expected and is usually controlled with oral medication. Patient are instructed to keep the head elevated and ice frequently after surgery. Swelling and bruising can occur and usually resolve within 1 to 2 weeks.

Where is the scar?

The scar is either camouflaged into the lid skin crease or hidden inside the lid.

I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I have been seeing Dr. Akkary since 2014. The first day I was given his cell number...that has NEVER happened before at any other doctor's office. He is genuine and compassionate and really only wants to help you succeed. I have called him so many times and he has ALWAYS answered my questions. He has performed 2 surgeries on me and I wouldn't go anywhere else! I trust him and his staff completely. They will listen to all of your concerns and explain everything completely!

Great for anything in his speciality

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he’s going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you’re reading this I’m sure). In all he’s a wonderful person who if you’re lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call’s no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn’t a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I’ve never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I’ve seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he’s always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He’s great if you’re looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he’d be my doctor for everything, but he’s only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.

My acid reflux and GERD was curable
