What is Blepharoplasty?
Sometimes, an abundance of skin around the eyes can create an unflattering facial appearance. The Eye Center of Southern Indiana offers eyelid surgery (known as blepharoplasty or an eye lift) to reduce excess skin and create a softer look that enhances your face's ability to convey emotion. If you're interested in refreshing your look with an eye lift, contact us to schedule a consultation with R. Daniel Grossman, M.D. or one of our other ophthalmologists in Bloomington, IN.
What Is Blepharoplasty Like?
During your private consultation, treatment options will be discussed with your doctor based on your conditions that need to be corrected. Generally, ideal candidates have excess, hanging skin and folds above their eyes or puffy skin below the bottom eyelid. Blepharoplasty involves making an incision along the natural crease of skin beneath the eyes and/or along the lash line above, allowing the surgeon to carefully remove excess skin and suture the remaining skin back together to tighten appearance. Eyelid surgery can last up to two hours, depending on whether one or both eyes are treated. After surgery, you should expect to take about a week to recover at home. Results from blepharoplasty can last a decade or longer, but even though they are long-lasting, the aging process will continue.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
