Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Before and After Photos

by Dr. Daniel Lin

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty) Before and After Photos | PasadenaEyelid surgery is a relatively minor cosmetic surgery procedure, but considered sensitive because it involves the eyes. At the time of pre-op consultation, the surgeon will explain about the benefits and limitations of this procedure, and may also present eyelid surgery before and after photographs.

Dr. Daniel Lin is a board certified plastic surgeon providing eyelid surgery to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar, and surrounding locations.


What are Eyelid Surgery Before and After Photographs?

Before and after photographs in case of eyelid cosmetic surgery refer to a set of images pertaining to an earlier patient who has undergone the same surgery with a satisfactory outcome. The images include pictures taken prior to the surgery and after the surgery at a stage when the initial redness and swelling has been eliminated and full effects of blepharoplasty are visible.

The surgeon will take care to ensure that the photographs are taken with the patient’s complete consent and presented before new patients in a discreet manner. The patient’s identity may be kept confidential as needed. The surgeon’s only goal in this exercise is to use these photographs as a visual aid to explain the potential effectiveness of eyelid surgery to new patients.



Eyes are aesthetically a prominent part of the face, and any change to the eyes will have a significant impact on facial appearance. Therefore, a new patient will naturally have concerns about how eyelid surgery may impact their facial look and identity and whether it will meet their personal cosmetic goals.

Some patients may need lower or upper blepharoplasty, while some others may require both. In some cases, the procedure may be performed in conjunction with brow lift, facelift, fat transfer or Botox injections. The patient is in a better position to make the right decisions in such situations when they have access to eyelid surgery before and after photos.


Having Reasonable Expectations

An experienced surgeon will like to ensure that the patient knows exactly what to expect and what not to expect from eyelid surgery results. This will mitigate the risk of any disappointment occurring for the patient at a later stage, and make things easier for everyone involved.

Therefore, the surgeon may prefer to present eyelid surgery before and after photos at the very first appointment. They will encourage the patient to review the photos well, and form a clear understanding of what the surgery can or cannot do for them.


Online Photographs

The surgeon has the option to provide eyelid surgery before and after photos on their practice website. If they are active on social media, they may also share the photos with a wider audience via social channels such as Facebook, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest.

What has really revolutionized this industry is the same thing that has aided so many other industries and has allowed them to soar to new heights. It is digital technology. With digital technology, patients or anyone can contemplate lower or upper blepharoplasty without ever putting their name out there, without ever making one phone call.

This means that when someone does have a sit down with Dr. Lin and/or a staff member, this means the consultation can be much quicker since you do not have to rely so much on their word. You can apply these vivid pictures to your own eyes and face and know what to expect. This negates the anxiety for everyone if you choose to proceed since you know what to expect because of this awesome technology.
