Each year, over 200,000 people in the United States undergo eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty. This is no surprise, because the eyelids are one of the first facial features to show signs of aging. Dr. Lee’s goal is to create eyelids that look natural, youthful and well-rested.
As we age, the eyelids lose elasticity. The loss of elasticity causes the skin to become wrinkly and excessive. The excess skin on the upper eyelid can hang over the lid and may even interfere with your vision.
The loss of elasticity of the eyelid also decreases the lid’s ability to hold the fat around the eye in place. As a result, the fat around the eye may bulge and cause a heavy and tired appearance.

Both upper and lower lid surgery can be performed individually or together. It can be done under local or general anesthesia and usually takes between 1-2 hours to perform. Our Beverly Hills blepharoplasty often makes an excellent complement for a facelift, neck lift, brow lift or rhinoplasty, bringing comprehensive improvement to the entire face.
“Dr. Lee is a life saver! It is very important that a plastic surgeon actually listens to a patient’s wants and needs. That is exactly what Dr. Lee did. I highly recommend her!”
