Eyelid Lift | Blepharoplasty

Eyelid surgery - blepharoplasty

“When your eyes are tired the world is tired also.”


As we age, our skin loses its elasticity. The loss of elasticity will cause skin to droop or sag. Around the eyes, loose, hanging skin can disrupt the natural upper eyelid contour, and, for some, even interrupt vision. On the lower eyelid, drooping, excess skin creates puffiness and bags under the eyes.

Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, will tighten up the skin around the eyes, reduce the bagginess from the lower lids, and restore the youthful appearance and contour of the eyelids.

Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid. The excess skin in the upper and lower eyelids can be removed. If necessary, fat can be removed or repositioned to achieve a youthful yet natural look. Blepharoplasty is typically performed under local anesthesia or with intravenous sedation. The procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with other facial aesthetic procedures.
