What Is African American Blepharoplasty?

In any cosmetic procedure, it is vital to take into account the patient’s features and natural appearance. This is all the more important for eyelid surgery, which adjusts small tissues that require an experienced surgeon. African American Blepharoplasty is a special approach to blepharoplasty that tailors the procedure to patients with an ethnic heritage, focusing on maintaining a natural-looking facial harmony. Dr. Williams has the ideal background for helping patients of various heritages find a path toward eyelid surgery results that builds upon what makes them distinctive.

African American Blepharoplasty Overview

African American Blepharoplasty is a type of cosmetic eye procedure that takes into account the unique eye structures of patients with African heritage. The goal of African American Blepharoplasty is to adapt blepharoplasty techniques to provide a more open and alert look to the eyes. During this surgery, excess skin is removed from the upper and/or lower eyelids, helping African Americans obtain a more vibrant look to the eyes that builds on the patient’s individual traits and features..

  • Are in overall good health
  • Currently do not smoke

After the Surgery: Recovery

Recovery time following African American Blepharoplasty can vary depending on the individual and extent of the procedure. Typically, patients need to take several days off from work (between 1-2 weeks), although swelling and bruising usually subside quickly. The desired results are typically visible within a few weeks as swelling decreases and facial features become more defined. Patients with an African American heritage who want to achieve a more youthful and vibrant look to their eyes can usually expect long-lasting results with African American Blepharoplasty.

After the Surgery: Results
