Be Refreshed

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a surgical procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of the upper and lower eye lids resulting in a more youthful and rested appearance.

Blepharoplasty includes removal of excess skin and fat from around the upper and lower lids.  Dr. Izquierdo’s goal is to rejuvenate with a subtle, natural, and refined result.

Areas addressed by a Blepharoplasty

  • Reduces bags above and below your eyes
  • Smooths away wrinkles along the lower eyelid.
  • Tightens skin above the eyes.

“I am so happy with the results. They are subtle and appropriate. My husband says that I look beautiful every day! What more could I want? Thank you so much for a very positive and pleasant experience.”

What Other Patients Say

​​From start to finish the entire experience couldn’t have been easier. Consultations were never rushed. All aspects of surgery were discussed and I felt completely at ease with my decision. Two months after surgery and I couldn’t be happier.

I knew the minute I walked out of his office I would be using Dr. Izquierdo. I had met with 5 other doctors for the same surgery and he met all expectations start to finish.

Having surgery of any kind is scary, but Dr. Izquierdo is very comforting and reassuring making this very first elective experience easier.

Your Blepharoplasty Procedure

A blepharoplasty surgery requires 1-2 hours in an out patient surgical facility.  Anesthesia options are general anesthesia, IV sedation, or local anesthesia.  Patients discuss their options with Dr. Izquierdo.  Incisions are placed in the natural eye lid folds.  Depending on each patient the lower eyelid surgery may be performed through a non-visible incision on the inside of the lower lid.

“Have had a wonderful experience from the first appointment all the way through from the office staff to Dr. Izquierdo. I feel wonderful and love my new look!”

Blepharoplasty Recovery

Eyelid surgery recovery time requires 7-10 days to feel comfortable in public.  Maintaining a cooling regimen post operatively for the first 24 hours will help decrease swelling and bruising.  Scars will be slightly pink for 1-2 months and then gradually fade 4-6 months post operatively.  Most patients are able to return to work within 10-14 days following surgery.  Intense activities and exercises are to be avoided for 3-4 weeks to provide for optimal healing.
