After eyelid surgery, patients with once heavy, droopy lids notice a brighter more refreshed appearance to their eyes. Surgical eyelid lift is often performed in conjunction with brow lift or facelift for added facial rejuvenation.
Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is an extremely delicate procedure that requires superior surgical skill to achieve natural looking results. In this procedure, baggy, puffy eyelids are corrected through the surgical removal of excess skin and fat to rejuvenate the area around the eyes.
The Eyelid Surgery Procedure
During the procedure, excess eyelid skin is removed in such a way that the final scar is well hidden along the natural line of the skin and within the crease of the upper eyelid. Rejuvenation of the lower eyelid is performed in a similar manner, with excess skin and muscle tissue being removed in addition to puffy fat deposits. The incision for the lower lids is strategically placed along the lower lash line. In certain younger patients who only have issues involving excess fat, lower lid rejuvenation can actually be accomplished through an incision made on the inside of the lower lid. In the lower eyelid, there are limitations on how much skin can safely be removed.
