Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a highly sought-after procedure that can dramatically enhance the appearance of the eyes. Combining lower and upper blepharoplasty is an effective approach to rejuvenate the entire eye area, addressing both under-eye bags and drooping eyelids. In this post, I’ll discuss the benefits of these procedures and share insights from a recent reel showing the marking process for these surgeries.

Simultaneous Lower and Upper Blepharoplasty

Lower and upper blepharoplasty are two transformative procedures that often go hand in hand to unveil the full radiance of the eyes. Lower blepharoplasty targets under-eye bags, which can make you look tired or older than you feel. Upper blepharoplasty addresses drooping eyelids, which can obscure the natural beauty of your eyes and even impair vision.

Combining these procedures helps restore a refreshed and youthful appearance, enhancing the overall harmony of the face. During the surgery, precise markings are made to ensure the best results, as shown in my recent reel where I mark the landmarks and planned incision sites for both upper and lower blepharoplasty.

Q&A: Insights into Blepharoplasty

Q: What is blepharoplasty?

A: Blepharoplasty is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids. It aims to improve the appearance of the eyes by eliminating drooping eyelids and under-eye bags.

Q: What are the benefits of combining lower and upper blepharoplasty?

A: Combining lower and upper blepharoplasty offers comprehensive rejuvenation of the eye area. It addresses multiple concerns simultaneously, leading to a more harmonious and youthful appearance. This combined approach can also be more convenient for patients, reducing overall recovery time.

Q: How is the procedure performed?

A: During the procedure, precise markings are made on the eyelids to guide the incisions. For lower blepharoplasty, an incision is usually made just below the lower lash line to remove or reposition fat and tighten the skin. For upper blepharoplasty, an incision is made within the natural crease of the upper eyelid to remove excess skin and fat, and sometimes tighten the underlying muscle.

Q: What is the recovery process like?

A: Recovery from blepharoplasty typically involves some swelling and bruising, which can last for a couple of weeks. Most patients can return to normal activities within 10 to 14 days. It’s important to follow post-operative care instructions to ensure optimal healing and results.

Q: Are there any risks or complications?

A: As with any surgical procedure, there are risks associated with blepharoplasty, including infection, scarring, and changes in sensation. However, these risks are minimized when the procedure is performed by a skilled and experienced surgeon.

Q: How long do the results last?

A: The results of blepharoplasty are long-lasting, although the natural aging process will continue. Most patients enjoy the benefits of the surgery for many years. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and skincare regimen can help prolong the results.


Simultaneous lower and upper blepharoplasty is a powerful approach to rejuvenate the eyes, providing a refreshed and youthful appearance. By addressing both under-eye bags and drooping eyelids, these procedures can significantly enhance your natural beauty and boost your confidence.
