Blepharoplasty is the medical term for cosmetic eyelid surgery. In less than an hour, Philadelphia cosmetic surgeon Dr. John Lee can perform blepharoplasty to improve the appearance of puffy, droopy, or baggy eyes. But how long do the results of such a brief procedure last?

Sometimes called an “eyelid lift,” blepharoplasty differs from many plastic surgery procedures in that it addresses fundamental physiological features more than the effects of aging or gravity. For example, Dr. Lee is one of only a few surgeons in the United States who specifically performs Asian eyelid surgery to adjust the shape and appearance of the eyelid so that it complements the entire face.

Because Dr. Lee focuses on bringing out the best in facial features created by heredity and genetic makeup, the results tend to be long-lasting. In fact, a skillfully performed blepharoplasty is unlikely to require additional procedures later on to maintain results.

Enduring results have many benefits, but it’s crucial to find an experienced plastic surgeon who can perform a blepharoplasty right the first time. With extensive education and experience in oculoplastics, Dr. Lee prides himself on helping patients enhance their eyelids for an improved overall appearance.
