Eyelid Surgery/ Blepharoplasty
Do you see tired, droopy eyes looking back at you from the mirror? The loose skin over your eyes and the puffy pads under your eyes make you look more tired and older than you feel inside. Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty corrects sagging skin and removes the fatty pouches above and beneath the eyes.
Eyelid surgery is done as an outpatient procedure under twilight sedation. To remove the fat pads from below the eyes, an incision is placed just inside the lower eyelid. The skin of the lower eyelid is then treated with the laser to remove the fine wrinkles or a pinch of excess skin may be removed. To correct the upper eyelid, fine incisions are placed in the natural crease above each eye and a thin crescent of excess skin and muscle is removed. A browlift or forehead lift is often done in conjunction with upper eyelid blepharoplasty.
