Blepharoplasty and Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as cosmetic eyelid surgery, is a procedure that rejuvenates the eyelids and area around the eye. If your eyelids are suffering from dermatochalasis, a sagging, droopy or puffy eyelid, your face will look fatigued, sad and tired – despite good health and adequate rest. Blepharoplasty tightens droopy eyelids to rejuvenate your face and give your eyes a bright and alert appearance.

Blepharoplasty is the most common facial plastic surgery procedure for the upper or lower eyelid.

  • Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty removes obstructed vision due to a droopy upper lid. With a medical diagnosis, the upper lid procedure is often covered by insurance.
  • Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty is typically done for cosmetic purposes to lift and tighten the skin around the lower eye area, reducing bags, bulges, and wrinkles.

Since every eyelid is unique in shape, size and composition of skin and fat every procedure is tailored to your eyelid and face. The right combination of skin and fat removal, repositioning and tightening are essential for a rejuvenated and youthful appearance.
