What are Blepharoplasty Before and After Images?

Before and after photos in case of blepharoplasty refer to a pair or group of images belonging to a previous patient who has undergone the same procedure successfully. The pictures include images taken before the surgery and after the surgery at a time when the swelling and bruising has subsided and full effects of the procedure are showing.

The plastic surgeon will take before and after pictures with the approval of the patient, and present them before new patients in a duly discreet manner. The surgeon’s goal is only to educate new patients about eyelid surgery with the help of these pictures. The photos serve as a visual tool to help new patients understand what exactly the procedure can or cannot do for their facial appearance.


When a new patient is considering blepharoplasty, they may only have a vague idea of how it will impact the appearance of the eyes and the face. Some patients may only need lower blepharoplasty or upper blepharoplasty, while some others may need a combination of the two. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend eyelid surgery in combination with a brow lift or another facial procedure.

In all such situations, it can be difficult for a patient to make the right choices. This is where the surgeon will make use of eyelid surgery before and after photos to help the patient make an informed decision.

Expectations from the Surgery
