The appearance of your eyes says a lot about when you’re happy or sad when you’re alert, and how young you feel on the inside. However, aging around the eyes can affect how you appear to others, making you seem tired, overwhelmed, or even upset when you’re not. A blepharoplasty at The Lanfranchi Center may be just what you need to restore your bright-eyed, happy appearance.
What is Blepharoplasty?
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid lift (either of the upper, lower, or both eyelids) designed to tighten the skin and lift the tissues around your eyes to reduce signs of aging, address lax skin, correct drooping, smooth wrinkles, and even remove fatty deposits that can obstruct the vision. An upper blepharoplasty addresses “hooding” of the upper eyelid when skin becomes loose or fatty deposits migrate to give the eyes a puffier appearance. Lower blepharoplasty removes the bags that gather beneath the eyes that contribute to a fatigued, drawn appearance.
Blepharoplasty at The Lanfranchi Center is Dr. Paul Lanfranchi’s favorite way to offer dramatic results with minimal recovery time. It’s a fast procedure, usually taking less than an hour, and results in a natural, effortless youthfulness. Tiny incisions are made in the eye’s natural creases. Dr. Lanfranchi then trims and repositions fat pads around the eye and removes excess skin to contour the eyes to your natural shape for a fresh, beautiful appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you’re troubled by undereye bags, excessive skin, wrinkles, sagging, or undereye hollows, you may be an ideal candidate for blepharoplasty. Because of Dr. Lanfranchi’s surgical techniques and skill, even patients with complicated medical histories may be candidates. Start with a consultation at The Lanfranchi Center.
What’s the Procedure and Recovery Like?
Blepharoplasty procedures are some of the easiest to recover from, with many Lanfranchi Center patients returning to work in just 3-5 days. Because all procedures at The Lanfranchi Center are performed with local anesthetic and oral sedation, your recovery time is smoother, faster, and less prone to complications than with general anesthesia. Team TLC is with you every step of the way, from consultation through recovery, so your procedure provides the best results possible.
You may experience 3-7 days of mild swelling or bruising, which resolve on their own. Following the detailed aftercare instructions will minimize your discomfort and risk of complications. Before you know it, you’re back on your feet.

What Results Will I See?
Many patients report the blepharoplasty is the least invasive procedure that produces the greatest results with even the subtlest of changes to the eyes. Your eyelids will be smoother, better contoured, and you’ll seem more refreshed and alert, even without coffee! For patients with more hooding or puffiness, the loss of excess tissue immensely improves peripheral vision. You may even feel less tired at the end of a busy day than before, thanks to your eyes no longer being weighed down with excess tissues.
Dr. Lanfranchi specializes only in face and neck rejuvenation, so if you’re looking for a surgeon with the skill, experience, and attention to detail necessary to make the most of your blepharoplasty, The Lanfranchi Center in Las Vegas is your answer. Transform your features with one of the most effective, minimally invasive cosmetic enhancement procedures available. You just might see the world with whole new eyes.
“I had a lower face lift, neck lift, chin augmentation, upper eyelid lift and laser treatment done to lower eyelid area. I was extremely impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Lanfranchi and the entire staff at TLC. The consult made me feel very comfortable with the surgery plan and approach. I had been to other consults with other plastic surgeons prior to this one and I felt very comfortable with this one. I also have had many other plastic surgery procedures in the past related to breast cancer reconstruction so I am familiar with how procedures and post op care are conducted and TLC met and exceeded all of my expectations. I am very happy with the outcome and would recommend TLC to anyone who would like a refreshed look. I am 62 and my friends have commented that I look 10 years younger.”
