What is it? Outpatient procedure for removal of fatty tissue from upper and/or lower eyelids.

Normal healing time: a week to 10 days.

Average price in the US: $3,000 - $4,000.

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a procedure to remove droopy eyelids or bags under your eyes.

It can be performed alone, or in conjunction with a facelift to help maintain a healthy, youthful appearance.

For upper eyelid surgery, the incision to remove fatty tissue and excess skin is usually hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid so when completely healed it is unnoticeable. The procedure is much the same for lower eyelid surgery, with the incision made just below the eyelash line.

In many cases, the surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and you are allowed to return home in a few hours.

Although many patients report a surprising lack of discomfort from the incision, ten days is the usual prescription for healing and resuming normal daily activities.
