Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Lift

Eyelid Lift at Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center (RASC)

At Rockford Ambulatory Surgery Center (RASC), we understand that the eyes are not only the window to the soul but also a central feature of facial expression and appearance. An eyelid lift, technically known as blepharoplasty, is a procedure that can rejuvenate tired eyes by removing excess skin, muscle, and sometimes fat from the upper and/or lower eyelids.

Understanding Blepharoplasty / Eyelid Lift and the Procedure


An eyelid lift, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure that corrects droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, which can improve both the appearance and function of the eyes, including potentially enhancing the field of vision.


This surgery not only lifts sagging eyelids but can also address and remove the puffiness and bags beneath the eyes, contributing to a more rested, youthful look.


For those whose sight is affected by the heaviness of the upper eyelids, an eyelid lift can remove the obstruction, offering not just a cosmetic enhancement but also a functional benefit.


Tailored to Your Needs


Comfort and Precision


Smooth Recovery

Before your eyelid lift, you'll consult with your ophthalmologist or oculoplastic surgeon to discuss your goals, the procedure, and what results to expect. Your doctor will then coordinate with our team at RASC to plan your surgery, ensuring we are fully prepared for your specific needs. We'll give you clear instructions on how to prepare for the surgery, including guidelines on eating, drinking, and medication adjustments. Also, you'll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you overnight after the procedure.

On the day of your surgery, your physician will perform the procedure with the support of our attentive RASC staff. The surgery usually takes one to three hours, depending on whether both upper and lower eyelids are done together. Local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia will be used to ensure you are comfortable throughout the surgery.

Post-procedure, you'll be able to rest in our recovery area before you're ready to go home. We'll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions and any necessary prescriptions for pain management and to aid healing. Swelling and bruising are normal and will subside over time. Your doctor will also schedule follow-up visits to ensure that you are healing properly.
