Blepharoplasty or surgery of the eyelids gives a rejuvenated appearance to the upper and/or lower eyelids, making you look more rested and alert.
Upper eyelid surgery can soften excess, bulging fat deposits that appear as puffiness, remove loose or sagging skin that creates folds effecting the natural contour of the eyelid. Sometimes this excess can impair vision and the removal of the redundant eyelid skin will be of benefit.
Incisions in the upper lid are within the natural crease and in the lower lid just below the lash line extending a short distance into a lateral crease line.
Lower eyelid surgery also can conservatively remove excess bulging fat and skin. It can elevate the distance between the lid margin and the lid-cheek junction and tighten a lax lower lid. Often a fat transfer to the inferior bony orbit is added.
