Also known as eye lift or blepharoplasty
Eyelid Surgery, also knows as Blepharoplasty, is the surgical correction of the aging eye. The majority of our patients request this procedure because “everyone says I look tired when I’m not.” This procedure can be performed on the upper eyelid, lower, or both. Whether your upper eyelids droop or your lower eyelids look puffy, Eyelid surgery is an easy way to rejuvenate your tired looking eyes.
When to Consider Eyelid Surgery
• If you have excess, hanging skin covering the natural fold of the upper eyelids
• If you have loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids over the eyelashes
• If your upper and lower eyelids appear puffy, making your eyes look tired and aged
• If you have deep grooves under your eyes
