What Is Eyelid Surgery?
Eyelid surgery is a highly adaptable procedure that can provide patients with a range of benefits that deliver a refreshed and vibrant appearance. Depending on your procedure plan, you can treat either your upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both at the same time. With a personalized eyelid surgery, you can reverse certain signs of aging and treat other cosmetic concerns to enjoy a refreshed and vibrant look.
Types of Eyelid Surgeries
- Upper Eyelid Surgery: Ideal for treating upper eyelid concerns such as loose skin, droopy eyelids, or uneven eyelids.
- Lower Eyelid Surgery: Ideal for treating concerns with the lower eyelid, such as drooping or dark circles.
- Combined (Quad) Eyelid Surgery: If you want to address concerns with both the upper and lower eyelids, this is the best option.
Asian Eyelid Surgery: Ideal for patients who want to add the dynamic aspect of a double fold to their upper eyelid.

Non-Surgical Eyelid Options
Dr. Brown also provides several non-surgical options for treating eyelid concerns, such as dark circles and under-eye bags. Using non-invasive techniques such as dermal fillers, microdermabrasion, and more, he can also provide you with a refreshed look. Many patients choose to have these treatments after eyelid surgery as well to enhance their results and make them longer-lasting.
What Is the Recovery Like?
Patients usually take between 1-2 weeks off from work after their eyelid surgery. While there can be some swelling and pain around the eyelids, the right medication can help manage this. We usually remove stitches after a week, and then your recovery continues from there. Once your stitches are out, you can resume most activities. Still, avoiding strenuous activities or risks to your eyelids can be essential for having an ideal recovery and optimal results. Dr. Brown will provide you with full instructions before your eyelid surgery to ensure every step of your recovery goes well and your results come through nicely.
When Can I See Results?
As your swelling around the eyelids goes down, you should be able to see your results improve day by day. Most patients see their final results within 1-2 months, depending on their individual healing timeline. Once you see your final eyelid surgery results, they should be with you for years to come. However, it will remain important to avoid activities or habits that can age or damage your skin further. For example, patients who avoid smoking and excessive sunlight exposure will see their refreshed look stick around for much longer.
Once you are fully healed, some of our non-surgical treatments can help you maintain your eyelid surgery results. These treatments work by helping your body maintain collagen production and preventing a loss in volume, keeping you looking young and refreshed for longer.
