Blepharoplasty plastic surgery, also known as eyelid lift surgery, enhances the appearance of droopy and tired-looking eyes.
During the pre-op consultation, the surgeon will assess the condition of the patient’s upper and lower lids and recommend a suitable blepharoplasty technique.

What are Blepharoplasty Before and After Photos?
Blepharoplasty ‘before and after’ images refer to a pair or group of photos of previous patients who have received eyelid surgery with desirable results. These images are taken prior to the procedure and after the surgery at a time when the post-op swelling and bruising have resolved, and the full outcomes of the procedure are visible.
The surgeon will attain these photos with the consent of the patient and display them to potential patients in a discreet and judicious manner. The identity of the patient will be kept private, as per standard protocol.
The surgeon will only present these images to new patients with the aim of helping them develop clarity on the outcomes of the eyelid surgery. These images are on the website so anyone in the world who has Internet access can see them.
The face is the most prominent area of the body. Therefore, patients are understandably concerned about any procedure that impacts the face. The surgeon can display blepharoplasty before and after images to offer a prospective patient an assurance on whether blepharoplasty is appropriate for them.
Some patients may require only limited correction with eyelid surgery while others may need more extensive treatment on both the upper and lower lids. Irrespective of the case, the patient can make a more enlightened decision after viewing blepharoplasty before and after photos.
What’s awesome about this is that anyone can see these pictures. As we already noted, you can be sitting near your pool or sitting at a bagel shop one morning checking out these images. You don’t have to make one call. Your annoying cousin or a friend you don’t want to know about what you are considering does not have to know because you can see these pictures completely anonymously.
Combining Images with Text
New patients may find it beneficial if descriptive text detailing the procedure, the reasons for which it was performed, and how it addressed the patient’s specific issues is displayed alongside blepharoplasty before and after photos.
The surgeon can showcase the journey of a previous patient with clear, concise, and succinct descriptions. This can be an important part of before and after photo galleries, as patients relate better to pictures while descriptions enable them to recall the associated details for vividly.
Cosmetic surgeons can share eyelid surgery before and after images to provide patients with information and raise awareness about advanced procedures, such as blepharoplasty surgery. They may share images digitally in the following ways:
- Photo Galleries on Practice Website: Developing a before and after gallery on the practice website which has been done with acumen. The website that Dr. Khan has is brilliant and she believes in disclosing her talents which has benefited so many former patients.
- Creating Portfolios: Creating a photo portfolio to show to new patients considering eyelid surgery
- Combining Images with Blog Posts: Adding pictures to a blog post is an effective way to offer new patients with visual evidence of procedure outcomes.
- Social Media Platforms: Images are a powerful tool to optimize social media posts. But discretion is important when posting on public forums.
A comprehensive before and after picture gallery can educate patients and act as a promotional tool for the surgeon and their practice. It is a forum to present their expertise and skills while informing prospective patients about advanced cosmetic procedures, such as blepharoplasty.
