Blepharoplasty, also known as an eyelid lift, tightens the skin around the eyes, reduces undereye bags, and restores the youthful appearance and contour of the eyelids.
The end result can be a subtle, but dramatic improvement when the procedure is performed by a highly-skilled plastic surgeon. Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper or lower eyelid.
The excess skin affecting the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids can be resolved. Fatty deposits can be removed or repositioned to achieve a more youthful, yet very 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.
