Sometimes your eyes send unintended messages. You feel well rested, vigorous, and happy, yet your eyes can make you look tired, old, and perhaps even sad. Stephen Pap, MD, can help restore youthful vitality to your eyes through eyelid surgery in Boston, MA.

Improvements from Eyelid Surgery
Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, can give your eyes a refreshed, alert appearance. While everyone has their own personal reasons, many patients choose eyelid surgery to:

  • Raise heavy, droopy upper eyelids
  • Correct under-eye bags and bulges
  • Smooth crow's feet from the outside corners of the eyes
  • Lift sagging upper lids that can impair your normal vision

After your consultation with Dr. Pap, he will recommend procedures or treatments to improve the appearance of your eyes. Eyelid surgery often complements other revitalizing procedures such as a face lift or non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, or aesthetic treatments to achieve maximum results.

Your Options
For a natural look, it's important to choose a facial plastic surgery specialist in the Boston area who offers a range of eyelid surgery options. Dr. Pap will customize the surgery to your unique facial anatomy for pleasing results that naturally integrate with the rest of your face. He will determine which of the following options is right for you:

  • Upper eyelid surgery: Involves incisions along the natural fold of the upper eyelids.
  • Lower eyelid surgery: Involves incisions placed either along the inside surface of the lower eyelids (transconjunctival) or outside the lower eyelids along the eyelashes.
  • Combination upper and lower eyelid surgery

During your consultation, Dr. Pap will ask you about your cosmetic concerns and provide a thorough evaluation to determine which procedures or treatments will help you achieve your goals.

What to Expect
Dr. Pap typically performs eyelid surgery as an outpatient procedure in a hospital setting using general anesthesia. After eyelid surgery, you can expect to return to light activities within 7 to 10 days and resume your normal routine, including exercise, within 3 to 4 weeks.
