Eyelid Surgery Overview
Blepharoplasty involves both the upper eyelid and the lower eyelid procedures. Depending on each person's unique characteristics and cosmetic desires, one of these procedures, or both, may be performed. The procedure can help to rejuvenate the upper eyelids, making a person appear younger and more alert, correct bagginess under the eyes, and provide a more youthful appearance
- Eyelid surgery restores or sculpts a youthful contour to the upper eyelid and can improve bags, puffiness and sagging skin of the lower eyelid.
- This can be done by either removing the excess skin and fat from the upper eyelids, or by removing excess fat from the lower eyelids.
