What Is Quad Blepharoplasty?

Quad blepharoplasty, also known as quad eyelid surgery, is a surgical procedure that focuses on the four quadrants of the eyes: upper left and right lids, lower left and right lids. The goal of quad blepharoplasty is to improve the overall appearance of the eye area for a refreshed look. It is ideal for patients who want a stunning overhaul of their eye area, and tackles multiple cosmetic concerns at one time.

Quad Eyelid Surgery Overview

At Chicago Oculofacial Consultants, quad eyelid surgery is performed at the same time, eliminating the need for additional trips to the operating room. During the procedure, your surgeon will carefully remove excess skin and fat to reduce puffiness and sagging around the eyes. The skin incisions are carefully placed and hidden within the natural lines around the eyes. Within an hour or so after your procedure, you can go home to begin recovery.
While everyone heals differently, eyelid incisions often leave minimal scarring that heal well without much evidence of surgery. The entire procedure typically takes two to three hours, but may vary depending on the specifics of your procedure plan. Patients may also have the opportunity to combine a quad eyelid surgery with a brow lift for even further aesthetic rejuvenation.

Beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of introduction.


Benefits of Quad Eyelid Surgery

The quad blepharoplasty procedure can provide a range of benefits for patients looking to refresh and enhance their appearance. These potential benefits can include:
  • Reducing puffiness and creating smooth, even eyelids
  • Rejuvenating the skin around the eyes for a more youthful look
  • Opening up the eyes to make them appear brighter and larger
  • Restoring a rested, alert appearance
  • Minimizing signs of aging in the eye area, such as wrinkles and fine lines

After the Surgery: Recovery

Immediately after your quad blepharoplasty procedure, you can expect some swelling and bruising around the eyes. Some discomfort or pain is also normal but can be managed during recovery with proper medication. Your surgeon will provide instructions on how to care for your incisions over the course of recovery, so be sure to follow them closely.

Most patients are able to return to their everyday activities within a week or two, but we still advise avoiding strenuous activity until Dr. Williams gives her approval.

After the Surgery: Results

Once your quad blepharoplasty is complete, you will experience a smoother and more youthful appearance around the eyes. Any puffiness or sagging in the upper quadrants and bags in the lower quadrants should be greatly reduced for a beautiful transformation that lasts. While you can see some immediate results, it will be important to remember that your final results will be visible only once any swelling has fully gone down. We also recommend keeping up a healthy lifestyle to maintain your results for as long as possible.
