What is a Blepharoplasty?
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. Additionally, the muscles around the eye can stretch and weaken over time which allows fat herniation to create puffiness of the eyelids. Surgical correction can be performed either in the office or in a surgical suite as an outpatient procedure.
The Blepharoplasty Procedure
Blepharoplasty removes excess skin around the eyelids and aims at restoring a youthful contour to the upper face. The muscles are re-suspended to provide additional support and create a long- lasting result. Blepharoplasty can be combined with other procedures to rejuvenate the entire face.
Various techniques in eyelid rejuvenation allow for an individualized approach to maximize every patient’s outcome.
