Revitalize Your Gaze

Discover the Power of Blepharoplasty in Atlanta

People’s eyes are often the first feature that we notice, and aging eyes can cause individuals to look more haggard, tired, and older than they are. As we age, eyelids develop fine lines, wrinkles, heavy bags, and droopy skin.

Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Asaf Yalif addresses all of these concerns with a Blepharoplasty in Atlanta and Alpharetta, GA, our locations serving metro Atlanta. By removing extraneous skin, tissue, and fat on the upper or lower eyelids, Dr. Yalif can transform your appearance so you look more youthful, refreshed, and revitalized.

Blepharoplasty Benefits

Blepharoplasty can help you look younger and more refreshed by removing the sagging skin around your eyes. This technique is useful for those who have droopy upper or lower eyelids that make them look tired and aged. Besides improving your appearance, blepharoplasty can also improve your eyesight if your eyelids are obstructing your vision. This surgery can also remove under-eye bags and make your eyes look brighter and more vibrant. Dr. Yalif at Y Plastic Surgery in Atlanta takes a careful approach to ensure that patients not only look rejuvenated but also maintain their natural look.

Ideal Candidates


Both men and women can benefit from upper or lower eyelid surgery or a combination. In metro Atlanta, candidates for Blepharoplasty typically have:

  • Crepey, wrinkled eyelid skin that makes them look older
  • Droopy upper eyelids that overhang the lash line
  • Bags under the eyes

The patients who come to our practice considering Blepharoplasty usually desire a more refreshed, rejuvenated appearance that looks natural.

Enhance Your Eyes


During your consultation for Blepharoplasty, Atlanta plastic surgeon, Dr. Yalif explains the different techniques he uses for eyelid surgery and thoroughly examines the quality and tone of the skin around your eyes. Depending on his exam and your aesthetic goals, he may recommend either upper or lower eyelid surgery or a procedure that combines both.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Certain patients may be able to have an upper blepharoplasty with local anesthesia as an outpatient procedure in our treatment room, where we perform minor procedures. For all upper eyelid surgeries, Dr. Yalif makes incisions within the natural crease of the eyelids. He cuts a little further to remove the extra skin on the outer corner of the upper eyelid. After carefully making the incision, Dr. Yalif removes the excess fat and skin. He then closes the incision with sutures he removes at a follow-up appointment.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

With lower eyelid surgery, Dr. Yalif places the incision along the base of your lash line. This provides Dr. Yalif access to remove extraneous fat and tissue. If someone has puffy lower eyelids but their skin tone is good, doctors can use a special technique called transconjunctival Blepharoplasty. It's a procedure that helps reduce puffiness and restore a more youthful appearance to the eyes. In this approach, the incision is made inside the lower lid, leaving no visible scar.

Upper & Lower Combined

Sometimes, in order to fix all the problems related to the eyes, certain patients may need to undergo surgery for both their upper and lower eyelids. This procedure can take up to 2 hours to complete.

“...I am happy again, inside and out…”



“I have been very pleased with Dr. Yalif! I had an upper eyelid lift, and it was done in 45 min and I was back to work the next day. His staff is professional and on their game. They do not push procedures on you but are very helpful when you inquire about the ones you want to do.” — Cindy L., Atlanta

“Amazing experience!! Dr. Yalif and the staff are extremely professional and considerate. The entire process, from consultation to surgery, was smooth and seamless. I received a breast reduction and could not be more satisfied with the results. I highly highly recommend this office to everyone!!” — Zaina A., Atlanta

“Dr. Yalif and his team have been AMAZING from start to finish. They are compassionate, relatable, and understanding. They explain everything to you and are more than willing to answer any questions and listen to help quell any fears or concerns you might have. Super easy to contact and respond effectively and efficiently. If I had to do it again I wouldn’t change a thing! I’m beyond grateful for Dr. Yalif and Y Plastics because they have truly changed my life for the better, and they made the whole experience smooth and enjoyable!” — Ansley M., Atlanta

I had 4 kids, and the stretch marks and the extra skin were beauty marks, but after years of being unhappy with the way I looked in the mirror, I am happy again inside and outside. Thanks for making me confident again. I would highly recommend Dr. Y. He has the best manners of any MD I have ever met, and his staff is amazing.” — Jennifer L., Atlanta

I love Y plastic surgery and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND.” — Samantha W., Atlanta

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

After the surgery, you may experience some swelling and bruising, but it will gradually go away over two to four weeks. However, you will start noticing the best results in the following months. During the recovery period, which usually lasts for 7 to 10 days, you should rest and avoid activities that can strain your eyes, like using the computer or reading for long periods. You should also avoid any vigorous physical activities during this time.

To maintain the results of the surgery, you need to follow some post-operative care instructions. Wear UV-protective sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun, use cold compresses to reduce swelling, and avoid smoking to help your body heal. You also need to keep the incision sites clean and use any ointments or medications prescribed by Dr. Yalif.

It's important to remember that the natural aging process will continue, but non-surgical treatments like injectables or skin rejuvenation can complement the procedure and keep you looking youthful. Regular follow-ups with Dr. Yalif and his team will help identify any potential issues and ensure you continue to enjoy the benefits of your blepharoplasty.

BlepharoplastyFrequently Asked Questions

Brow lift surgery can be combined with eyelid surgery to help rejuvenate the peri-ocular area. Nonsurgical treatments can enhance Blepharoplasty results as well by providing more comprehensive results. Popular options include:

  • Fat transfer or injections of a dermal filler like Restylane® correct dark under-eye circles caused by lack of fat by restoring volume to the area.
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic can help soften crow’s feet that form at the outer corners of the eyes.
  • Juvéderm Voluma® injections can add or restore volume to the cheek/malar area with long-lasting results.
  • Skin treatments like microneedling or laser treatments can address fine lines and wrinkles.

Recovery from upper eyelid surgery is pretty expeditious. The sharp pain from the incision only lasts a few days, and the stitches are removed in 1 week. Swelling and bruising typically resolve within 10 to 14 days, though the patient’s activity level may cause swelling to continue for a few weeks. Generally, patients should avoid exercise for 10 to 14 days and are then free to resume a normal activity level.

Lower eyelid surgery recovery is similar to upper eyelid surgery recovery; for example, pain is typically not severe after lower eyelid surgery. There are a couple of key differences:

  • Lower eyelid incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches that do not need to be removed.
  • The swelling that occurs in the lower lid can last longer—up to 8 to 12 weeks—depending on how much fat is removed or repositioned during the surgery and the patient’s activity level.

After the surgery, patients can expect to have eye irritation and bruised and swollen eyelids. These symptoms typically last a few days and can be eased with:

  • Ice packs
  • Medicated eye ointments
  • Eye drops
  • Keeping the head elevated

Once the swelling and bruising resolve, patients can expect to see natural-looking, more youthful, refreshed eyelids.

While scars cannot be avoided with any surgery, Blepharoplasty scars shouldn’t be visible due to their placement. Men and women considering eyelid surgery travel from Atlanta and throughout Georgia to have Dr. Yalif perform the procedure. Request a consultation using the online form to discuss your goals personally with Dr. Yalif. You can also call us at (404) 822-4402 to schedule an appointment.

Dr. Y’s Skincare

If you're planning to get a major cosmetic surgery like a tummy tuck or a facelift, we want to help you get the best possible results. Dr. Yalif believes that taking care of your skin before and after the surgery is important for your body to heal better and faster. We recommend some simple skin care routines that can help you maintain your new look, reduce scars, and achieve your desired appearance.

Skincare for Facial Plastic Surgery

If you're planning on getting facial rejuvenation procedures done, we recommend taking some steps beforehand to prepare your skin. One thing you can do is use a special product called a retinoid from a brand called Environ. This will help your skin look better over time and reduce any problems you might experience like itching or dryness. In addition to this, we recommend using a variety of skincare products to keep your skin looking young and healthy, and to help it heal quickly after the procedure. These can include things like moisturizers and cleansing products, as well as a special serum that contains vitamins A, C, and E. At night, you can use a super moisturizer, and during the day, you can use a product called ISDIN SPF to protect your skin from the sun. By using these different products together, you can help your skin recover from the procedure and look great for years to come.

Skincare for Eye Procedures

If you're looking for a good eye cream, Dr. Y recommends Environ Vita-peptide gel. This product can help reduce fine lines, crow's feet, puffiness, and other common eye concerns. If you've had any eye procedure done by Dr. Y, using this cream can enhance the results.

Skincare for Body Contouring Procedures

It's important to take care of your body after any medical procedures. Our Derma-Lac lotion is a great option to help keep your skin soft, moisturized, and smooth in the areas that were treated. We also have a special body oil that has vitamins A, C, and E to help with any scarring, stretch marks, dry skin, and pigmentation. Our team of experts is always available to answer your questions and give you advice on how to get the best results.
