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, life style, diet and sun exposure also contribute to this process. This excess, puffy, lax skin can make you appear tired and older than you are. Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can give the eyes a youthful makeover 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

Excess skin and fat are removed through an incision hidden in the natural eyelid crease for the upper eyelids. 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. If desired, laser resurfacing or a chemical peel can be performed simultaneously to smooth and tighten the lower lid skin and improve skin texture. If excessive skin is in the lower lid, the incision is below the lashes. Fat can be removed or repositioned through this incision, and the excess skin can be removed. The incision is then closed with fine sutures.


Upper and Lower Blepharoplasty

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