The eyes have been called the “windows to the soul,” and surgery to make eyes look bigger is still one of the most requested facial plastic procedures. Today, many women use surgery to make eyes bigger not to achieve an entirely new appearance, but to support their other facial features.

Typically, the result of surgery to make eyes bigger is a rested, refreshed, and younger appearance. However, the surgery to make eyes bigger is not a typical blepharoplasty, aka eyelid surgery. When attempting to achieve a larger look to the eyes, both horizontal and vertical adjustments (width and height) must be made to the eye.

Frequently Asked Questions About Eye Enlargement

If your eyes are not as large as you would like, plastic surgery can help. There are a few surgical methods that can give your eyes a larger, more dramatic appearance. Upper eyelid surgery involves removing excess skin and minimizing the bulge in the interior corner of the eye. Lower eyelid surgery is done to address the fatty pockets below the eyelashes. This can give your eyes a more significant appearance and help you look more youthful and vibrant.

Health Insurance companies generally do not include plastic surgery that is done for cosmetic purposes. However, if there is a medical necessity for eyelid surgery, it may be covered. If a medical doctor conducts a vision test that confirms this necessity, an insurance company may cover it. 

Blepharoplasty is the medical term for eyelid surgery. The purpose of the surgery is to remove the excess fat and sagging skin from the upper and lower eyelids. 

Epicanthoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that removes the ‘Mongolian Fold’ that covers the inner corner of the eye. This Epicanthal fold may obstruct a significant portion of the inner eye. This can make the eyes look narrow and too far apart. Epicanthoplasty gives eyes the appearance of being more prominent and vibrant.

Canthoplasty is a cosmetic procedure used to reconstruct and reshape the outer corner of the eye. Canthoplasty is a lower-eyelid surgery that makes the eyes look softer and more almond-shaped. It also acts as a face-lift to the under-eye area by giving a person the appearance of being more well-rested and rejuvenated.

The eyelid surgery is ambulatory, so patients return home the day of the surgery. After 5 days, the sutures are removed, and any swelling will quickly subside. The swelling usually dissipates completely 2 weeks after the Blepharoplasty. Patients typically return to work a week after the surgery.

The average price for eyelid surgery, or Blepharoplasty, is around $4,000 for upper eyelid surgery and $5,000 for lower eyelid surgery. Most Plastic Surgeons will bundle upper and lower eyelid surgery for a discounted price.

Dark circles or “bags” under the eyes are treated with lower eyelid surgery if they are the result of shadowing due to bulging or fat or sagging skin. If the dark circles are the result of pigmentation changes, skin lightening creams or light chemical peels may be able to treat the issue.

The development of wrinkles around the eyes is a natural part of aging. Over time, the skin around the eyes becomes less elastic, which causes the eyelids to droop. Once this process begins, a person may start tensing their forehead muscles to lift their droopy eyelids. This can cause headaches and fatigue. If you are experiencing these symptoms or want a more youthful, energetic look, you may be the right candidate for a blepharoplasty.


Eyelid surgery typically begins with local anesthesia to numb the area, along with light intravenous sedation. Patients remain awake, but stay comfortable and do not experience any pain during the procedure. After any surgical procedure, some discomfort can be expected. All patients are provided with prescriptions for pain medication. Patients typically have very mild discomfort after their eyelid procedures.

Eyelid skin is the thinnest skin on the body. As such, it heals more quickly than any other skin on the body. The incisions made during an Eye Lift procedure are made along the eye’s natural creases. These incisions will heal quickly and be almost invisible and are typically only visible when the eyes are closed.

Blepharoplasty is a relatively quick and non-invasive cosmetic procedure. A plastic surgeon can perform the upper Blepharoplasty in an hour and the lower Blepharoplasty in another hour.
