The eyes are the central focus of the face. They draw our attention and convey how we feel to those around us. Unfortunately, they are also often the first facial features to show signs of aging. Eyelid surgery, also known as a blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure we offer in Charlotte, NC, for men and women who choose to rejuvenate their eyes and enjoy a more rested appearance that reflects how they really feel inside.
Through their collaborative two-surgeon partnership, Dr. Andrea Garcia and Dr. Josh Surowitz give the eyelids a revitalized and youthful contour while preserving a look that is uniquely and naturally you.
Eyelid Surgery Before & After Photos
Case: 1 of 2

Who Is a Candidate for Eyelid Surgery?
The ideal eyelid surgery candidate is looking to address signs of aging around the eyes, including:
- Descent (drooping) of the upper eyelids
- Fullness or bulging of the fat in the lower eyelids
- Hollowing of the tear troughs, which appears as dark circles
These changes often occur with age, but they can also be hereditary and occur in younger people.
What Is the Difference Between Upper & Lower Blepharoplasty?
Depending on your goals, your procedure may include an upper eyelid lift, a lower eyelid lift, or both. Here’s how they differ:
- Upper blepharoplasty addresses drooping upper eyelids, sometimes even improving obstructed vision.
- Lower blepharoplasty removes puffy bags and fills in hollow tear troughs as needed to create a smooth transition between the eye area and the cheek.
Both approaches involve incisions hidden along natural creases in your eyelids, leaving you with little to no visible scarring.
Many people also experience some sagging in the brows and forehead that adds to the look of hooded upper eyelids. Dr. Garcia and Dr. Surowitz may recommend addressing all of these concerns in one surgery by combining your blepharoplasty with a brow lift.

What our clients have to say
They are so good, I drove all the way from Atlanta, GA, to have this procedure done.
I am SO HAPPY with the results, and I’m so very grateful for the doctors that genuinely cared for me and fixed my eyelids! I do not look like I have “had work done,” but instead, I look refreshed.

What Is Eyelid Surgery Recovery Like?
Most people need about 2 weeks away from work and other activities to fully heal from eyelid surgery. It’s normal to have some bruising, swelling, and tenderness around your eyes during this time. You can limit this by sleeping with your head elevated and applying ice packs as often as possible for the first couple of days.
Are There Nonsurgical Alternatives to Eyelid Surgery?
Surgery is typically the best way to lift the eyelids and remove puffy bags with long-term results. However, you do have several nonsurgical eye rejuvenation options:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: BOTOX smooths away crow’s feet, frown lines between the brows, and can produce a subtle brow lift.
- Dermal fillers: These injectable gels fill in hollow tear troughs and disguise the edges of lower eyelid bags.
These treatments also work wonderfully to enhance or maintain your blepharoplasty results after surgery.
