Convey the look you want


Your eyes hold much more expression than the rest of your face. Everyone’s eyelids are unique and undergo change with time. Blepharoplasty performed on either the upper or lower eyelids can remove excess skin and fat to rejuvenate the eyes

Blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, is a surgical cosmetic procedure that removes excess skin around the upper and/or lower eyelids to give patients a more youthful, awake, and alert appearance. 

The Procedure



What are the benefits of Blepharoplasty?

  • Smooths away fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
  • Lifts sagging or drooping upper eyelids
  • Improves under-eye bags and puffy under-eyes
  • Minimal downtime and recovery period
  • Can be performed with other facial plastic surgery procedures

How much does a Blepharoplasty cost?

The cost of your procedure will vary depending on the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results. 

How long does the procedure take?

The entire surgical procedure typically takes up to two hours to complete.

What Can I Expect During my Blepharoplasty?

Dr. Charles Boyd will perform your blepharoplasty at our Birmingham office. For your comfort, you will be given local anesthesia. Dr. Boyd will begin by carefully making a small incision along the natural creases of your eye, either in the crease of your upper eyelid or along your lower lash line. Through these incisions, he will be able to remove any excess skin contributing to your drooping or puffy appearance. 

What Can I Expect During my Blepharoplasty Recovery?

Following your blepharoplasty, you may experience tenderness, bruising, and swelling around your treated areas. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within the following few days. Most of our patients are able to return back to their normal daily activities, including work, about seven to 10 days following their eyelid surgery and make a full recovery within four to six weeks. Dr. Boyd will give you detailed post-operative care instructions prior to your blepharoplasty procedure to ensure a swift and easy recovery period.

Am I a Good Candidate for Blepharoplasty?
