What’s an Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)?

Eyelid surgery, otherwise known as Eyelid Lift, Eyelid Procedure or Blepharoplasty, is a corrective procedure that can remove excess wrinkles, skin, and fat from your eyelids and provide a more youthful appearance to the eyes. Upper Eyelid surgery addresses the bags and skin over the eyes, and lower eyelid surgery can remove, excess skin, wrinkles and “bags” under the eyes.

One of the first things noticed about a person is the eyes. During the aging process, wrinkles, lines, and puffiness contribute to a tired or aged appearance. Blepharoplasty can rejuvenate puffy, sagging or tired-looking eyes by removing excess fat, skin and muscle from the upper and lower eyelids. It may be performed for cosmetic reasons or to improve sight by lifting droopy eyelids out of the patient’s field of vision. Low positioned or droopy eyelids can sometimes prevent you from unobstructed vision. In such instances your eyelid surgery procedure can be covered by your insurance policy.

For superior aesthetic enhancement eyelid surgery can be combined with a facelift or a brow lift procedures.

The upper blepharoplasty procedure performed in conjunction with a brow lift significantly enhances upper facial aesthetic appearance by simultaneously raising the eyebrows and removing the excess eyelid skin. This gives a very strong improvement to tired saggy eyes and brows and gives you a youthful and alert look. Upper blepharoplasty also reduces the appearance of wrinkles and “crow’s feet” around your eyes.

The lower blepharoplasty procedure performed in conjunction with a facelift or mid-face lift significantly enhances lower and mid-facial aesthetic appearance. Blepharoplasty removes bags, fat, wrinkles and excessive skin from under the eyes, while facelift elevates the cheeks to close the tear through, or the gap between your eyelids and the cheek, to allow a smoother and a younger looking transition between your cheeks and eyelids.
