This page shows before and after photos of actual patients who have had upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery with Dr. Mitesh Kapadia.
Eyelids are often the first part of the face to show signs of aging. Excess skin on the upper eyelids and puffiness under the eyes can give patients an aged, tired apperance. After eyelid surgery, patients often notice that they look younger, more vibrant and less tired. As with all surgery and treatments performed by Dr. Kapadia, the goal is always a natural look. Notice how patients look like a better version of themselves and do not look fake or overdone.
The eyes are usually the first thing notice when they look at a face and are often one of the first parts of the face to show signs of facial aging. Eyelid surgery alone can often make a dramatic improvement in overall appearance of a face, as seen in the examples below.
Patient 1 - Before and four months after upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery
These photos show a woman in her early 60s before and after upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery. One vial of filler was used after surgery to blend the eyelid-cheek junction.
Prior to surgery, the patient had hooding of her upper eyelids as well as under eye bags. Addressing these issues gives her a younger, more refreshed appearance without looking fake or unnatural.
Patient 2 - Before and two months after upper and lower blepharoplasty
These photos show a man in his late 50s before and after upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery. One vial of filler was used to blend the eyelid cheek junction after surgery.
Eyelid surgery is often a great option for men as well women. After surgery he looks younger and less tired. The surgery highlights his beautiful blue eyes without looking fake or surgical.
Patient 3 - Before and three months after upper and lower blepharoplasty
These photos show a woman in her late 40s before and after upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery. After surgery she looks more youthful and less tired, but still looks natural. The surgery helps highlight her beautiful eyes.
Patient 4 - Before and six weeks after upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery
These photos show a patient in her late 40s before and after upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery. Botox was also used to soften the lines between her eyebrows.
Patient 5 - Before and six weeks after upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery
These photos show a woman in her late 30s before and six weeks after upper and lower blepharoplasty surgery. Prior to surgery, she had hooding of her upper eyelids and puffiness in her lower eyelids which had been getting worse since her teens. After surgery, she looks younger and more refreshed without looking overdone or surgical. Not everyone wants this much of a change at this age. The amount of correction can be adjusted to a patient's wishes.
As you can see from the photos above, the combination of upper and lower eyelid surgery can often dramatically improve a patient's appearance. Dr. Kapadia typically performs this surgery through an incision on the back of the eyelid, so there is no visible scar. This surgery can be uncomfortable for awake patients, so Dr. Kapadia usually performs this surgery in the hospital under IV sedation or general anesthesia. The surgery takes about one hour to perform and patients return home the same day. We always recommend taking two weeks off of work due to bruising and swelling after surgery, but some patients choose to return to work sooner. The incision is often a little bumpy right after surgery and gets better and better as the scar matures over 12-18 months. The incision is hidden in the crease of the upper eyelid and is barely visible with open eyes.
Filler injections are sometimes used after lower blepharoplasty surgery to blend the eyelid-cheek junction. Not everyone patient needs to have this done, but this extra step can help optimize the results of surgery in certain patients. If needed, fillers are added 6-8 weeks after surgery and usually last several years. All patients who had under eye fillers in addition to their surgery on this website have this noted in their caption. If you are interested in this surgery, Dr. Kapadia can discuss this with you further during your consultation.
