Are Your Eyes Making You Appear Tired, Sad or Angy Even When You’re Not?
Achieve Total Rejuvenation with Upper & Lower Blepharoplasty
Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) procedures are done for both aesthetic and functional purposes. Whether you’d like to restore younger-looking contours or improve your peripheral vision, Dr. Karolak can help. As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Karolak has helped countless patients achieve a naturally more youthful facial appearance through both upper and lower blepharoplasties.
How Does a Blepharoplasty Work?
Blepharoplasties are generally quick and easy. The procedure typically takes 1-3 hours and is done on an outpatient basis. During the surgery, Dr. Karolak will use his advanced surgical skills to adjust fat pads, tighten underlying muscles, and remove excess skin. Dr. Karolak enlists the help of local anesthesia to keep you comfortable throughout the entire procedure. After a few hours of observation, you’ll be able to go home for rest and relaxation.
Am I a Good Candidate
An upper eyelid lift may be worth considering if you’re bothered by loose, sagging skin that makes you look years older than you feel. Lower blepharoplasties may be the solution you’ve been looking for if you’re bothered by dark, under-eye bags. Combination procedures can be done for total eye rejuvenation with a single recovery.
Patients should be in otherwise good general health before considering blepharoplasty procedures. Dr. Karolak may request several lab tests and medical exams to ensure there are no underlying conditions that may negatively impact your procedure.
What Results Will I See?*
After upper or lower blepharoplasty procedures, you’ll be able to see some instant eye rejuvenation. Continued improvement will gradually occur over about 1-3 months. Blepharoplasties are generally a long-lasting procedure that gives the majority of patients a more youthful appearance for a lifetime to come.
I had upper blepharoplasty surgery performed by Dr. Karolak. I am so pleased with the results which far exceeded my expectations. I interviewed several plastic surgeons but Dr. Karolak spent the time and attention I needed to explain the procedure and answer all of my questions.
I look great and many people have commented on how good I look but they have no idea I had upper eye lid surgery! I highly recommend Dr. Karolak.*

What is the Recovery Like?*
Dr. Karolak prides himself on primarily using local anesthesia throughout your procedure. You won’t experience the groggy ‘comedown’ effects in the days following your surgery that are typically associated with general anesthesia.
In most cases, recovery is fairly straightforward. You’ll need to keep your head elevated and ice the treatment area as directed for up to 1 week. Most patients feel comfortable returning to their normal routines 1-2 weeks post-blepharoplasty.
