Due to thin, delicate skin, our eyes and eyelids often show signs of aging before other parts of our face. As we grow older, the skin around our eyes begins to wrinkle, crease, and droop, which can lead to a tired, worn-out appearance.
Upper eyelid surgery (or upper eyelid blepharoplasty) is a procedure that removes redundant, saggy skin from the upper eyelids to create a more youthful, rested appearance. In some cases, fat is also sculpted to help improve the appearance of fullness in the upper eyelids. Upper eyelid blepharoplasty can also be performed in conjunction with brow lift surgery to achieve a harmonious, rejuvenated appearance of the forehead, brows and upper eyelids.
Lower eyelid surgery (or lower eyelid blepharoplasty) is a procedure that helps to improve the appearance of “bags” and dark circles in the lower eyelids. This improvement is achieved by a combination of different techniques that involve the removing and repositioning of fat. Skin in the lower eyelid can also be resurfaced with a laser at the time of lower eyelid blepharoplasty to help improve the appearance of fine lines wrinkles. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can also be performed with upper eyelid blepharoplasty to help rejuvenate the appearance of the entire aesthetic unit around the eyes.
