The eyes being one of the most noticeable parts of the face, play a key role in establishing facial harmony and a sense of one’s age. The surrounding delicate tissue is particularly susceptible to age-related changes, lending to the common patient complaint of appearing perpetually fatigued.
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that refreshes the upper and lower eyelids by trimming excess skin, tightening focal skin laxity, removing any bulging fat and repositioning of the surrounding tissue layers to refine the periorbital contour. In the upper eyelids this is distinguished as improving the hooding of the lashline skin. While during a lower lid blepharoplasty the focus is to address the puffy bags and droopy skin. Eyelid surgery procedures can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both depending on the patient’s needs.
Our surgeons produce natural-looking eyelid rejuvenation by addressing all the anatomical layers contributing to an aged appearance. This may include the use of laser resurfacing or chemical peels to smooth superficial fine wrinkles and non-surgically tighten excess skin. As well as targeted fat grafting to best address the hollowed out appearance from volume deflation in some patients.
