Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is a form of eyelid surgery. There are two types, upper blepharoplasty and lower blepharoplasty. Both surgeries rejuvenate the area around the eyes, removing the heaviness or puffiness around the eyes and providing a smoother, more youthful look.

Blepharoplasty

UPPER BLEPHAROPLASTY

Upper blepharoplasty is the most common and least complicated procedure. Upper blepharoplasty involves surgically removing the look of ‘hooded eyes’ or overhanging fat and skin under the eyebrow.

 

LOWER BLEPHAROPLASTY

Lower blepharoplasty is similar in that loose skin and fat are surgically removed under the eyes, or on the tarsal plate. This surgery alleviates the look of sagging or ‘bulging’ eyes.

For either surgery, sometimes fat is repositioned, and skin tightened depending on the architecture of the eye and the patient’s desired outcome.

WHAT DOES BLEPHAROPLASTY PROCEDURE INVOLVE?

Eyelid surgery is performed to restore more youthful, natural-looking eye contours. Our surgeons will work with you to tailor your treatment to your unique concerns. This procedure takes approximately one to two hours to complete, depending on the targeted areas.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR BLEPHAROPLASTY?

The eyelids are often the first facial feature to develop aging, such as sagging skin and wrinkles.

Blepharoplasty is common for men and women who wish to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark circles around the eyes, bags beneath the eyes, and drooping skin above the eyes that may impair vision.

By smoothing and tightening the skin in the upper and lower eyelids, our surgeons can provide their patients with a more youthful, refreshed look.

Ideal candidates for eyelid surgery do not smoke, are in good overall health, and have realistic expectations of their results.
