Get Rid of Droopy Eyelids
Blepharoplasty is a procedure that can significantly improve your appearance, but it’s not for everyone. If you want to learn if you’re a good candidate for eyelid surgery, here are some questions to ask yourself:
If you answer yes to any of these questions, blepharoplasty may be right for you. The best candidates for blepharoplasty are healthy non-smokers with reasonable expectations about what the surgery can offer. Most Washington DC blepharoplasty patients tend to be above the age of 35, as this is when sagging or drooping eyelids can start to become a problem.
"I had upper eyelids that were a little droopy, which made me look very stern. After my eyelid lift, my eyes are much more feminine, and my face has a happier, more approachable look to it. I can't thank Dr. Feledy and his staff enough. Best decision ever!””
Flawless and Scarless
Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure that typically takes one to two hours under local or IV sedation. It begins by making an incision along the natural fold of the eyelid, which ensures that scars will be virtually invisible. Excess skin is removed, along with some muscle and fat, and then the incision is closed.
Rest Your Eyes
You will receive a lubricating ointment that will help to protect your eyes from damage and dryness. You may have some tenderness and mild discomfort the day after your surgery. This can be treated with ice packs and over-the-counter pain relievers like Tylenol. For most patients, the initial redness and numbness will pass after several days, while others have experienced some swelling and bruising for one to two weeks after surgery. To help with any further discomfort, you may receive a prescription medication following the procedure.
Just One Look…
Once you have fully recovered from the eyelid surgery, the final results should be visible between 1-2 months. Due to the targeted nature of the incisions, the scar should be nearly invisible and your eyelids should appear smoother and firmer.

All surgeries carry some form of risk or complication that can be minimized by a qualified surgeon. The risks associated with eyelid surgery include injury to the facial nerves, infection, bleeding, and potential scarring. All efforts are taken to ensure any risks are mitigated. You may be required to see your eye doctor and complete a visual eye exam before you can undergo eyelid surgery for medical cases. Be sure to ask Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino about these risks during your consultation.
Blepharoplasty is usually a quick, outpatient procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia. However, some patients are nervous or anxious about surgery without significant sedation. In that case, Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino may recommend general anesthesia to maximize your comfort. Once you wake up from your eyelid lift surgery in Washington DC, you should be able to go home with a friend or family member. It is recommended that a friend or family member drive you home if the procedure is performed under local anesthesia as well as the eyelids can get swollen right after the procedure.
