Although blepharoplasty (commonly known as eyelid surgery) is relatively standard, many people find it challenging to differentiate myths from facts when it comes to this cosmetic procedure. If a blepharoplasty is a surgical option that is being considered, the following information will probably be helpful.


False: People should treat their upper and lower eyelids to see a noticeable result Blepharoplasty can treat both eyelids. However, contrary to what many people think, it’s not necessary to rework all the eyelids to get a remarkable result.

False: Blepharoplasty always leaves a visible scar. Although this surgery requires incisions to remove excess tissue and retighten the skin, a qualified cosmetic surgeon is usually able to conceal them. Carefully performing them along the natural folds of the eyelids, the surgeon minimizes the visibility of scars that, once matured, will be invisible.

False: Blepharoplasty eliminates crow’s feet. Although it can rejuvenate and refresh a person’s look, this intervention, alone, is not able to fade wrinkles in the corners of the eyes (commonly called “crow’s feet”). Wrinkles and fine lines in the eye area are formed because of the repetitive movements and facial expressions they continuously use.

Over time, these wrinkles permanently “imprint” on the skin, leading to crow’s feet in the corners of the eyes. Learn more about this by visiting Dr. Zacharia’s profile.


True: Blepharoplasty is one of the most requested interventions by men. Popular with both men and women, blepharoplasty has always seduced men. This can be explained by the fact that many men are embarrassed by the bags under their eyes and their overloaded upper eyelids that give off a tired look.

It is a question for many male patients to renew their face without showing any traces of surgical intervention, which is why the discretion and the natural result of blepharoplasty appeal to so many men looking for a rejuvenation of the face. Remember, however, that this is not a simple surgery for most and should not be taken lightly. The primary goal of blepharoplasty is to lighten overloaded eyelids that may have sagged or block part of the person’s visual field. However, it is possible to combine blepharoplasty with a non-invasive treatment such as Botox injections to fade such wrinkles.
