Eyelid surger or blepharoplasty can be performed in numerous types of fashions. Laser eyelid surgery or laser blepharoplasty is a method of eyelid surgery or eyelid lift where a laser is used to make the incision as opposed to a scalpel. Proponents of laser blepharoplasty claim that the laser causes less bleeding and swelling. There is no right or wrong instrument to perform blepharoplasty, as long as it is perfumed well. There are no studies to show less bleeding, pain, or swelling with laser eyelid surgery then without the laser. The most important factor to obtain the best result is to seek a board certified surgeon with experience performing eyelid surgery.
