Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery to improve the appearance of upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both, and give a rejuvenated appearance to the surrounding area of your eyes, making you look more rested and alert.
Specifically, eyelid surgery can treat:
- Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision
- Excess fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the upper eyelids.
- Bags under the eyes.
- Droopiness of the lower eyelids, showing white below the iris(colored portion of the eye).
- Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid.
This procedure would be performed under local sedation or general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you. The incision lines for eyelid surgery are designed for scars to be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid regoin. The eyelid incision typically are closed with removable sutures, skin adhesives, and surgical tape. The results of the eyelid surgery will appear gradually as swelling and bruising subside to reveal a smooth, better-define eyelid and surrounding region, and an alert and rejuvenated appearance.
