Blepharoplasty

What is a Blepharoplasty?

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the eyelids.

 

Surgery can be performed on the upper lids, lower lids or both.

 

Whether you want to improve your appearance or are experiencing functional problems with your eyelids, eyelid surgery can rejuvenate the area surrounding your eyes.

 

What eyelid surgery can treat:

 

      Loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural                  contour of the upper eyelid, sometimes impairing vision

      Fatty deposits that appear as puffiness in the eyelids

      Bags under the eyes

      Drooping lower eyelids that reveal white below the iris

      Excess skin and fine wrinkles of the lower eyelid

 

 

Good candidates for eyelid surgery include:

      Healthy individuals with no medical conditions that can impair                     healing

      Nonsmokers

      Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic goals

      Individuals without serious eye conditions
