Blepharoplasty vs. Non-surgical Treatments: Which Is Right for You?


Are you dealing with tired, puffy eyes, or droopy eyelids? Deciding between a blepharoplasty procedure and non-surgical treatments to refresh your facial appearance can feel overwhelming without someone to guide you through the process.

At the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center, we can help patients with either option, so it’s important to first understand the differences. That will ensure you make the best possible choice based on your needs and preferences.

Blepharoplasty: The Surgical Approach 

Blepharoplasty, also referred to as an “eyelid lift,” is a surgical procedure that can improve the look of the eyes. This usually involves the removal of excess skin, fat, or muscle from the eyelids.

It’s an ideal option for those experiencing vision obstruction caused by droopy eyelids or for those desiring a permanent solution for puffiness and baggy eyes.

The surgery only requires about one to two hours, usually involving local anesthesia. It provides lasting results for patients, who can keep their refreshed look for 10 to 15 years. It’s worth adding that blepharoplasty requires a recovery period that might include swelling, bruising, or a break from normal activities.

Non-surgical Treatments: The Non-Invasive Alternative 

On the other hand, non-surgical treatments like BOTOX® or other dermal fillers offer another option.

These non-invasive procedures are more simple. They require a short session of injecting dermal fillers into the skin around the eyes. This results in smoothed-out wrinkles, tightened skin, and reduced puffiness. This option is perfect for those looking for a quicker fix and recovery.

However, these treatments aren’t permanent, and their results typically last between three to six months. Regular maintenance treatments are required to maintain the results.
