The Blepharoplasty procedure typically takes 1-2 hours to complete and is usually performed under local anesthesia, with or without sedation. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon will make a small incision in the upper or lower eyelid skin and carefully remove any excess fat and skin. The incisions are then sutured closed.
