Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is performed to improve the appearance of the upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both. It will specifically treat eyelids with excess, drooping skin that can cause a sad, angry, or tired appearance. These conditions will appear with the natural, aging process, or often they are the due to heredity. This surgery will remove excess skin from the upper eyelids, eliminate bags under the lower eyelids, and restore firmness to the area around the eye. The result is a more rested and alert appearance! This can only be done surgically by repositioning muscle, redistributing fat, and removing excess skin. A browlift, which will smooth a furrowed or lined forehead, or a facelift or laser surgery can also be performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery. Upper eyelid surgery is frequently covered by insurance if you are experiencing vision impairment. This surgery is performed in the hospital or an accredited surgical facility. Patients can usually return to work in 1 – 2 weeks.

You can evaluate your eyes by looking directly into a mirror with a level gaze. If you have extra eyelid skin, it will tend to droop down onto your upper eyelashes. This droopiness can also give you a constantly tired appearance, giving the wrong message to the people around you. The aging process can cause the eyelids to sag and droop, with puffiness that will make you look tired and older then you are. Often people will notice that their upper eyelid looks “heavy” and their eyebrows tend to be crowding down onto their eyes. The eyes convey messages of emotion, vitality and age. This surgery will help freshen and revitalize your face!
