Blepharoplasty or Eyelid surgery

Your eyes are often the first thing people notice about you and are an important aspect of your overall appearance. As we age, the tone and shape of our eyelids can loosen and sag. Heredity and sun exposure also contribute to this process.

This excess, puffy or lax skin can make you appear more tired or older than you are. Eyelid surgery can give the eyes a more youthful look by removing excess skin, bulging fat, and lax muscle from the upper or lower eyelids.

If the sagging upper eyelid skin obstructs peripheral vision, blepharoplasty can eliminate the obstruction and expand the visual field.

Upper Blepharoplasty

For the upper eyelids, excess skin and fat are removed through an incision hidden in the natural eyelid crease. If the lid is droopy, the muscle that raises the upper lid can be tightened. The incision is then closed with fine sutures.

Lower Blepharoplasty

Fat in the lower eyelids can be removed or repositioned through an incision hidden on the inner surface of the eyelid. Laser resurfacing or a chemical peel can be performed at the same time if desired, to smooth and tighten the lower lid skin. If there is excessive skin in the lower lid, the incision is made just below the lashes. Fat can be removed or repositioned through this incision, and the excess skin removed. The incision is then closed with fine sutures.

Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty

Upper and lower blepharoplasty can be performed together and also can be combined with other procedures such as eyebrow or forehead lift, midface lift, face lift, neck lift, or laser skin resurfacing.

Who Should Perform a Blepharoplasty?

When choosing a surgeon to perform blepharoplasty, look for a cosmetic and reconstructive facial surgeon who specializes in the eyelids, orbit, and tear drain system, with an extensive training in ophthalmic plastic reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.
