Blepharoplasty | Eye Lift St. Louis MO

Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is a procedure for rejuvenation of the upper and lower eyelids. Eyelids are especially prone to the effects of aging and sun damage which, over time, creates sagging and drooping of the eyelids.

Various techniques in eyelid rejuvenation allow for an individualized approach to maximize every patient’s outcome. Dr. Steitz will discuss the procedure with you and any additional details for before and after surgery.

The Blepharoplasty Procedure

The muscles around the eye can stretch and weaken over time which allows fat herniation to create puffiness of the eyelids. Blepharoplasty surgery removes excess skin around the eyelids and restores a youthful contour to the upper face. The muscles are re-suspended to provide additional support and long-lasting results.
