About Eyelid Surgery & Blepharoplasty
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty can be performed as cosmetic eyelid surgery to help you look your best or as a functional eyelid surgery if droopy, puffy or saggy eyelids are restricting your vision. Eyelid surgery is a very popular type of cosmetic facial plastic surgery to help you look more refreshed and youthful. Your eyes are one of the most important aspects of your appearance, and one of the first areas to show signs of aging. If your eyes project a lack of energy due to overhanging skin and puffiness of your eyelids, you may appear tired or older which may be undesirable in your occupation or professional position or simply detract from you general appearance. Conversely, if your eyes are more open and relatively free of creases and folds, you will probably seem more rested and youthful. In our society, looking your best and preserving your youthful features are important parts of who we are in social as well as workplace situations.

Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can help improve two common characteristics of the aging upper eyelid area. The first is correction of excess skin of the upper eyelid, a condition referred to as "hooding of the upper lid.” The second condition that can be corrected is the puffiness that is seen in the inner corner and middle of the eyelid as a result of herniation (pushing forward) of fat located in these areas above the eye. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty is commonly performed at the same time as lower eyelid blepharoplasty. The techniques we use today help us minimize downtime and offer a relatively brief and comfortable recovery time for our patients.

Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Lower eyelid Blepharoplasty is a procedure performed to improve the appearance of the lower eyelids, which is the anatomic area that extends from the lower lid eyelashes to the bony rim of the eye socket. If there is a herniation of fat present, there are two different surgical approaches to remove the fat. The preferred approach is to enter the fat pockets through an incision made in the inner lining of the lower eyelid. If excess skin needs to be removed, this can only be accomplished through an incision that is hidden just below the eyelashes. The procedure is long lasting and usually never has to be repeated.
