Understanding Eyelid Surgery

eyelid-surgeryThe eyelid and surrounding structures are critical for protecting the eye and allowing for proper vision.  Eyelids are one of the first facial features to show aging.  Over time sun exposure, age, allergies and hereditary factors all contribute to drooping or baggy eyelids, wrinkles, deep lines, crow’s feet, and puffiness around the eyes.  These bothersome changes result in making one look tired, sad and older than they are.  If you are unhappy with these signs of aging in your eye area, eyelid surgery can restore the refreshed, vibrant, youthful look and take years off your appearance.

Eyelid surgery, eyelid lift, or Blepharoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that removes excess fat, muscle and skin from the upper and/or lower eyelids. Removal of this excess tissue in the eye area plays a key role in achieving a more radiant, youthful appearance. Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure.
