Eye Lift, also called Blepharoplasty or eyelid surgery, is one of the most commonly performed facial cosmetic procedures in the United States. It involves removing excess skin and fat from the upper and lower eyelids to solve the problem of drooping eyelids or bulging fat around the eyes. With blepharoplasty, patients have been able to refresh the appearance of their eyes without looking fake.
This procedure can last anywhere between one to two hours. Dr. Nazarian will place incisions in your natural creases to hide them. She will then remove the excess skin and fat, if necessary, of the eyelids. Dr. Nazarian has a philosophy of conservative and natural-looking surgeries so just the right amount will be taken out to prevent a fake or over-done look.
Typically, this procedure is done under local anesthesia, meaning you are awake, but may also be performed with general anesthesia, meaning you are asleep. The procedure is done in 1-2 hours and you can go home afterwards. It is extremely important that you tell the doctor any medical problems you have and any medication you are or have been taking, including herbal medications.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure
Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure typically performed under local anesthesia. Excess fat and skin are removed through a small incision made in the natural crease on the upper eyelids and below the lower eyelids’ lash lines. If only excess fat is present in the lower lids, it may be removed through a procedure called transconjunctival blepharoplasty, wherein incisions are made inside the lower lids with no external incision or scar.
Recovery Post-Eye Lift Procedure
Recovery after eye lift procedure is relatively pain-free and quick for most patients. Patients can go back to usual activities within 3-5 days after surgery. It is advised to avoid high-impact exercise and strenuous activities for several weeks after surgery to allow complete healing. Dr. Nazarian will provide thorough and individualized recovery instructions at the time of your consultation.

She is wonderful and very caring thru the whole process. Thanks Dr.for changing my appearance and helping me with every question I had. I totally recommend her to anyone who is looking for an excellent Dr. If I would of known about her before, I would of done this procedure years ago.This is my first time writing a review, but I had to share this experience because I know there are people looking for a good Dr they can trust. I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
