During a blepharoplasty, the oculoplastic surgeon makes a sub-ciliary incision. This procedure makes it possible to treat sagging skin and muscles at the eye level. The eye surgeon can also remove bags under the eyes if necessary.
Blepharoplasty generally lasts for one hour and is performed under local or general anesthesia.
The scar due to this surgery is at the level of the palpebral crease (a fold that is formed when the eyes are opened). Therefore, it is invisible when the eyes are opened. Starting from the sixth post surgery month, the scar will become almost imperceptible to the naked eye, even when the eyes are closed.
