Blepharoplasty (Eyelids)

View our Plastic Surgery Before and After Gallery >

Your eyes are the focal point of your face. Droopy eyelids can make you look older, tired, sad, and even impair your vision. Puffiness under your eyes makes you look fatigued. Dr. Dan Jacob can bring out the beauty of your eyes with blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, for a more youthful, rested, and naturally refreshed appearance.

As you age, your muscles weaken, skin stretches and fat accumulates around your eyes, causing droopy eyelids and puffiness in the eye area. You may have excess skin that hides the natural contour of your eyes or impairs your vision, Dr. Jacob recommends eyelid surgery, which he can perform on upper, lower, or both lids for more youthful-looking eyes and a firmer eye area.

Dr. Jacob can help you decide whether any additional surgery, such as a browlift, facelift or skin resurfacing, would add even more impact. Please note that blepharoplasty cannot alter dark circles, “crow’s feet” in the corners of your eyes, or change sagging eyebrows.

Upper eyelid surgical correction can be performed in our New Orleans-area facial plastic surgery office, which is quite cost effective as it eliminates facility and anesthesia fees. If the defect of the lower lids is not too severe, the puffiness can be reduced by fractional CO2 laser treatments, also done in the office.

Dr. Jacob, a fellow of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and board-certified Otolaryngologist head and neck surgeon, performs surgery exclusively on the face, neck, and head. Trust his expertise when he recommends which procedures he believes will help achieve natural-looking results.
