Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery or an eye lift, is used to produce an alert and more youthful look to the eyes. With blepharoplasty, Washington, D.C. plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside can address issues such as:

  • Puffy bags underneath the eyes
  • Dropping eyelids
  • Dark circles around the eyes

If you are experiencing any of these issues and would like to learn more about your options, Dr. Gartside would be happy to meet with you for a one-one-one consultation at one of our Washington, D.C. area offices.

Is Blepharoplasty Right for Me?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of the area around your eyes, blepharoplasty may be right for you. Ideal candidates for this procedure should be in generally good health and physically prepared for a surgical procedure. While blepharoplasty does not typically require a significant recovery period, good candidates need to be prepared to take time to rest following their procedure. Dr. Gartside will discuss this with you in more detail during your initial consultation.

Blepharoplasty is not intended to address eyebrow sagging or imperfections along the forehead. To address these issues Dr. Gartside may recommend combining blepharoplasty with a brow lift. This will depend entirely on your unique needs.
