corrects droopy, puffy eyes, rejuvenates a tired appearance, and creates a more youthful look.
Upper eyelid surgery incisions are made to remove excess fat, muscle and loose skin. Incisions are kept in the natural folds of the eye to hide scars and fine sutures are used to close incisions and minimize scar visibility.
Lower eyelid surgery incisions are typically made behind the eyelid to remove excess fat causing puffiness, as well as in an inconspicuous site along the lower lash line to remove excess skin.
Sometimes fat is repositioned rather than removed, and sometimes the lower lid is tightened as well.
Blepharoplasty can correct hooded upper lids, sagging lower lids and hereditary conditions such as overhanging upper lids. It can also remove puffiness and bags under the eyes that cause a worn, tired look. It also eliminates excess fat, muscle and skin and create a more youthful, refreshed look.
Blepharoplasty will not eliminate dark circles, eliminate all fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, nor change sagging eyebrows or remove festoons - the puffiness that sometimes occurs in the upper cheeks. It won't correct a sagging cheek.
