What causes dark circles under the eyes?

Many eyelid surgery patients experience a dramatic improvement in the appearance of their eyes, such as a more youthful aesthetic, which lasts for years. In some cases, Blepharoptosis can even improve vision.

Will there be scarring?

Incisions for Blepharoptosis are made in the creases or edges around the eyelids to minimize visible scarring. Patients considering the procedure for correction.

How long is the recovery?

Patients can typically return to their normal daily routines about seven to ten days following the blepharoplasty procedure.
