Cosmetic Blepharoplasty

Cosmetic Blepharoplasty - Eyelid Surgery / Eye Lift

Blepharoplasty, the surgical procedure performed to improve the appearance of the eyelids, gives the eyes a more youthful look by removing excess skin, bulging fat, and/or lax muscle from the upper or lower lids. Your surgery is performed in our certified office suite. You  have options for local or twilight anesthesia.

Upper Eyelid

Excess skin, muscle and/or fat are removed from the upper lid through an incision hidden in the natural eyelid crease. If the upper lid is droopy, the muscle that raises the lid can be tightened. The incision is then closed with fine sutures. Many patients opt for special procedures to tighten their skin or to improve their eyefold positions.

Lower Eyelid

Fat in the lower lid can be removed or repositioned through an incision hidden on the inner surface of the lid (transconjunctival blepharoplasty). If desired, laser resurfacing can be performed simultaneously to smooth and tighten the lower lid skin. Should there be excessive skin in the lower lid, the incision is made just below the lashes. Fat can be removed or repositioned through this incision, and the excess skin is removed. The incision is then closed with fine sutures.
