If you are tired of looking tired or having others tell you to get some rest, it might be time to consider eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty. Our Lexington and Louisville, KY patients at Calobrace & Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery Center choose this procedure because it can make a dramatic improvement without extensive incisions or downtime.
To learn more about eyelid surgery and other facial cosmetic procedures, request a consultation with Dr. Calobrace, Dr. Mizuguchi, or Dr. Mays, or call (502) 899-9979 to schedule your visit.

About Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery is typically performed as an outpatient procedure in our on-site surgical suite. This procedure lasts 1 to 2 hours and is usually performed with the patient under local or IV sedation. Eyelid surgery is a highly detailed procedure that requires the surgeon to make careful incisions and corrections. The procedure may involve removing or repositioning fat, removing excess skin, and altering muscles. Incisions are very fine, and hidden within the natural folds and creases of the eyelids.CaloSpa Rejuvenation Center
What to Expect During Recovery
Healing rates after blepharoplasty vary from person to person. In general, expect temporary discomfort, tightness of the lids, or swelling. Temporary dryness of the eyes and burning may also occur. Bruising may last for 2 to 3 weeks.
Return to Work
Patients are typically ready to return to work in 7 to 10 days, but should limit strenuous activity for 3 weeks or more.
Other Things to Know
Results from eyelid surgery are typically long lasting. Although surgery will not halt the aging process, it will create a lasting improvement that continues to keep you looking younger than your chronological age.
Risks involved in this procedure include temporarily blurred or double vision, blindness (extremely rare), infection, swelling and bruising, difficulty in closing eyes, and pulling down of lower eyelids.
