Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
UPPER EYELID LIFT
The aging process leads to stretching of the upper eyelid skin which causes sagging and excess skin to develop. In addition, there may be bulging of fat in certain areas and/or loss of volume (fat) in others.
Together these processes create what we call a “hooding” effect as well as upper eyelid bags and can make you look tired and unhappy when you’re not. An upper eyelid lift, or upper blepharoplasty, restores a natural, more youthful contour to the upper eyelid by removing excess skin and either removing or injecting fat depending on your individual needs.
LOWER EYELID LIFT
Aging in the lower eyelid is caused by a combination of excess skin and changes in the volume and position of the fat, which is unique to each individual. A lower blepharoplasty addresses these changes by excising excess skin along with either excision or rearrangement of the fat pads under the eyes that cause “bags” or fat injections to restore volume where needed. Your individual requirements will be assessed and a plan formulated to restore a more youthful eyelid contour. This is all done using a well-hidden incision placed beneath the lower eyelashes.
