Find a Specialist in Eyelid Surgery - Washington, D.C.

Think you may be interested in an eyelid procedure or eyelid surgery? Washington, D.C. residents come to to find a trusting surgeon. Eyelid surgery, or a blepharoplasty, includes the removal or repositioning of skin and fat around the eyes. Almost always performed for cosmetic reasons, blepharoplasty is usually elected to reduce the appearance of “bags” under the eyes, and tighten the underlying tissue.

What can I expect?

Because the incisions are around the eyes, surgeons who perform eyelid surgery focus on making scars as discreet as possible. Most scars are hidden behind the eyebrows, under the lashes of the lower lids, or on the inside surface of the lower eyelid. The procedure itself takes one to three hours. Stitches are usually removed two days after the procedure, but the eyelids may remain swollen and bruised for up to a week.

Some questions you should ask your surgeon:

  • Are you board certified?
  • Do you perform procedures in a hospital or in a clinic?
  • Is it inpatient or outpatient?
  • Do you have a board certified anesthesiologist on staff?   
  • Do you have malpractice insurance?
