Woman's blepharoplasty results


Your eyes not only help you see: they also communicate how you feel. Signs of aging can make you look tired, even when you're not.

Blepharoplasty (or eyelid surgery) is a procedure performed by a plastic surgeon to remove excess skin and fat from around the eyes.

Dr. Sahar Nadimi can perform rhinoplasty in the Chicago, IL, suburb of Oakbrook Terrace to help you look rested and rejuvenated...

What Is Blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure during which a doctor eliminates excess skin, fat, and puffiness from around the eyes, reducing the appearance of folds and bags and giving you a more youthful appearance. If sagging eyelids are partially blocking your vision, the procedure can restore your full field of vision.

Why Choose Dr. Nadimi for Blepharoplasty

What Can Blepharoplasty Do for You? 

Blepharoplasty can address both aesthetic and functional concerns regarding the eyelids. The procedure can:

Eliminate loose or sagging skin from the upper eyelids, which can create deep creases and even affect vision

Reduce wrinkles on the eyelids that make you look older

Remove deposits of fat from the lids that make the eyes appear puffy

Eliminate bags under the eyes that result from loose skin and excess fat

Firm up the skin in the lower eyelids to eliminate sagging skin and reduce fine wrinkles

While blepharoplasty can treat excess eyelid skin that is starting to droop, as well as possible bulging fat pads, it is not intended to eliminate wrinkles from the outer corners of the eyes and the high cheekbones (crow's feet). If these are among your areas of concern, Dr. Nadimi can use BOTOX® Cosmetic to correct wrinkles in the area without surgery.

Often, superior results are achieved with complementary procedures. Many patients choose to combine blepharoplasty with a facelift or brow lift for a more dramatic cosmetic improvement. Dr. Nadimi may also recommend these to obtain a well-balanced and natural-looking result.

Reverse Signs of Aging

Dr. Sahar Nadimi explains how the eyes are one of the first places to see signs of aging. Her unique and precise skill allows her to perform eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, to reduce the tired, groggy look, and result in a refreshed appearance. Dr. Nadimi's expertise enables patients to recover quickly and resume their normal social life sooner than later.

Our Five-Star Reviews for Our Procedures

I give the highest marks possible to Dr. Sahar Nadimi and her staff. I'm from out of state and found the Chicago Hair Institute during a Google search, and I'm glad I did. Dr. Nadimi is a very skilled surgeon, and I found her communication skills before, during, and after surgery, to be of the highest order. The staff put me at ease throughout, and they allowed me to come in on as many days post surgery for washing or check up as I wanted. I felt very taken care of. The surgery I received was an FUT hair restoration, mainly of the front hairline, to cover an old scar, along with a few additional grafts in the crown region. My experience at the Chicago Hair Institute Clinic was A+++, and I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone. Thank you.

I would like to give the highest praise to Dr Sahar Nadimi and all of her staff. I was referred to Dr. Nadimi by a friend who saw her for a hair transplant and had excellent results. My friend's hair came out very natural-looking and full. I saw Dr. Nadimi for a lip lift since I always have had a long droopy upper lip that would often make people ask me what was wrong, by making me look sad. Since I have had the lip lift though it makes my face look a lot happier and as well, I am more confident and happy and myself. Today I went back to Dr. Nadimi for a consultation to get a hair transplant in the near future. I am very excited and looking forward to this. My lip surgery was very comfortable as well as the recovery, and the results are excellent. It is virtually impossible to see any scarring left from this. As well the whole experience was great! Everybody there is very warm and friendly and treats you like family, the office is very warmly inviting and clean, and the whole experience is just top-notch! If you are considering one of the services she provides, I hope you look into an appointment with her. You won't have to look anywhere else.

Are You a Candidate for Blepharoplasty?

Woman with eye bags

Dissatisfaction with Appearance of Eyes

If you are unhappy with your appearance because of loose or sagging eyelids, you may be a candidate for blepharoplasty. During the procedure, Dr. Nadimi will remove excess skin and fat and tighten the tissue to reveal younger-looking eyes.

Diminished Field of Vision

If drooping eyelids are making it difficult to see, eyelid surgery can help. Our doctors can order a visual field test to determine whether sagging eyelids are impairing your vision.

Good Overall Health

As with any plastic surgery procedure, you will need to be in good overall health in order to qualify for blepharoplasty.

Realistic Expectations Are Important

Eyelid surgery can dramatically enhance the appearance of your eyes, but it cannot make you look like a different person. Before undergoing this plastic surgery procedure, it is important to have specific treatment goals and realistic expectations for your results.

Closeup of closed eye
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, can be performed on the upper or lower eyelids, or both. Incisions are hidden in the natural features of the eyelid area to conceal scars.

The Blepharoplasty Procedure How It's Done

Blepharoplasty can typically be completed in one to two hours. Here's what happens during the surgery:


You will receive anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the surgery. We typically recommend general anesthesia so that you remain comfortably asleep throughout the procedure.


Dr. Nadimi will create incisions in discreet places where they will result in very minimal scarring. The upper eyelid incision is hidden in your natural eyelid crease. The lower eyelid incision may be placed either behind your eyelid or just below the lash line for minimal visibility.

Surgery and Sutures

Excess eyelid skin and any excess fat deposits are gently removed. Sutures are then placed to close the incision. The blepharoplasty procedure usually takes between one to two hours if not combined with other procedures.

Begin Recovery

Blepharoplasty is an outpatient procedure, so you will need another adult to drive you home once the surgery is complete. We also recommend having someone stay with you overnight. 

Blepharoplasty FAQs

What will my eyelid surgery results look like?

Blepharoplasty is a short, simple surgery that can produce significant results and high patient satisfaction. As an experienced, double board-certified plastic surgeon serving Chicago, IL, Dr. Nadimi will not over-correct your eyes, but will instead give you natural-looking results through gentle surgical techniques.

How long does it take to heal from blepharoplasty?

Most patients require several days or up to a week off of work until the bruising and swelling subsides. You may experience some swelling and/or bruising, but both should subside within a week. Dr. Nadimi will give you specific instructions regarding your recovery, such as using over-the-counter pain medication, ice, and artificial tears to reduce discomfort. After about a week, you will return to have your stitches removed.

Is blepharoplasty dangerous? 

Eyelid surgery is a relatively low-risk procedure. However, there are some complications that patients should be aware of. Bleeding and infection are possible complications with almost any surgery. Complications specific to eyelid surgery include dry eyes, discoloration of the eyelids, inability to close the eyes, a sagging lower lash line, or vision impairment. You can reduce your risk of complications by choosing a skilled plastic and reconstructive surgeon such as Dr. Nadimi. 

Highly Recommend Dr. Nadimi

"Dr. Nadimi has always made me feel very comfortable. She made me feel like I was not a number and she never pressured me into committing to get the procedure done with her. Moreover, Dr. Nadimi explained in detail the procedure, the expectations, the risks and the after care instructions were very clear. Following the procedure, I’ve contacted the office with some questions and she got back to me in a timely manner and took the time to address all my concerns. Aside from the doctor, the office staff is outstanding as well and very warm. They make you feel special and they are trustworthy.

It was the best decision I ever made, I have no regrets. My confidence went up, people noticed a big change at work and I even got a promotion few months later. Everybody that have known me before I got the procedure done keep telling me how amazing I look and how impressed they are with the results. It looks very natural, you would not be able to tell that I got this done. This has been truly a life changing decision for me. I highly recommend Dr. Nadimi."
