Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Lift)

A blepharoplasty is a procedure to remove excess skin from the upper and lower eyelids. Underlying fatty tissue that produces bagginess in the lower lids is either removed or repositioned. A blepharoplasty also improves the droopiness of the skin of the upper eyelids and gives the eyes a more rested appearance.

When to Consider Eyelid Surgery

  • If you have excess, hanging skin covering the natural fold of the upper eyelids
  • If you have loose skin hanging down from the upper eyelids over the eyelashes
  • If your upper and lower eyelids appear puffy, making your eyes look tired and aged
  • If you have deep grooves under your eyes
