Also known as blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can give you not only a new fresh appearance of the face but help you look years younger.
What is eyelid surgery?
Medically, it’s called blepharoplasty. Our surgeon essentially removes all of the excess skin and pockets of fat from the upper and lower eyelids. This will tighten and lift the eyelids to give you a more alert and youthful appearance. It may also help your vision if your eyelids were sagging into your line of sight.
What can eyelid surgery treat?
This surgery can remove bags from under your eyes, reduce the look of wrinkles, and help you look more awake. The procedure can also reduce vision problems and give you an overall younger appearance.
What can I expect?
When you come in for your consultation, a specialist will evaluate your eyelids. From there, you will be asked questions about medical history and what your goals for the surgery are. Our specialist will explain the surgery and let you know what it can and cannot do.
