Dr. Jay Penseler MD is a Harvard educated board certified plastic surgeon in Chicago who has performed hundreds of blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) plastic surgery procedures. Eyelid surgery (“blepharoplasty”), is a common plastic surgery procedure performed on both men and women and corrects drooping upper eyelids and alleviates the puffiness below the eyes by removing excess fat and skin. This highly rewarding procedure may be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial surgery such as a browlift and/or a facelift.

If you are bothered by upper or lower eyelids with excess, drooping skin or because your eyes that look tired due to the natural ageing process, puffiness, or bags, eyelid plastic surgery (blepharoplasty) may be right for you.

Dr. Pensler was great! He truly took the time to answer all of my questions, understood my condition, fully explained pre-op and post-op procedures and helped me feel comfortable. Never did I feel pressured or like I was being sold on anything. The nurse was extraordinary, knowledgeable, thorough, and they worked well together. I cannot imagine any aspect of my plastic surgery possibly being any better! ~RateMDs

Upper Blepharoplasty Plastic Surgery

Upper eyelid plastic surgery is often recommended for functional or cosmetic reasons or for a combination of the two. Upper blepharoplasty is the most common cosmetic  eyelid surgery procedure performed.

Dr. Pensler’s results achieve a significant and immediate cosmetic improvement while maintaining a natural appearance. Dr. Pensler customizes his approach to eyelid surgery based on the patient’s facial balance, utilizing scarless hidden incision techniques and latest technology to give the most natural looking results.

Lower Blepharoplasty Plastic Surgery

Lower blepharoplasty plastic surgery involves removal of excess skin and removal or redistribution of fat.

Dr. Pensler’s preferred technique for lower eyelid plastic surgery involves a hidden incision on the inside lining of the eyelid and avoids any scar in the skin. Lower eyelid surgery yields an immediate dramatic younger natural looking appearance.

The best candidates for upper or lower (or both) eyelid surgery are healthy men and women who have:

  • Excessive sagging or wrinkled upper or lower eyelid skin
  • Excess upper eyelid skin that interferes with vision
  • Lost their natural upper eyelid crease.
  • Puffy pouches of fat in the upper or lower eyelids that create a tired or aged appearance
  • Typical eyelid changes due to aging
  • Overhang of upper eyelid skin
  • Puffy looking eyelids
  • The appearance of ‘bags’ in the lower lids
  • Hollowing associated with the ‘tear trough’
  • Dark circles around the eyes

Please note: There are no visible scars associated with upper or lower blepharoplasty plastic surgery.
