Blepharoplasty rejuvenates the appearance of the eyes by removing and repositioning fat around the eyes and addressing drooping skin of the upper eyelids, minimizing bags under the eyes and tightening the lower eyelid skin.

When done properly, eyelid surgery creates a more rested, alert and youthful appearance. While either procedure can be done alone, upper and lower eyelid procedures are usually performed together.

Blepharoplasty Procedure

Upper eyelid surgery involves making a thin incision on the upper lid's natural skin fold, and removing excess skin and fat. Lower eyelid surgery is often performed without a visible incision through the inside of the eyelid, removing protruding fat tissue directly from the inside surface of the lower eyelid.
