Posted December 20, 2014 in Chemical Peels, Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty), Home, Wrinkle Reduction (Non-surgical)

Eyelid surgery is a way to open tired looking eyes and reduce lower eyelid bags. It can improve your view of the world and how the world views you. An Eyelid Lift is an outpatient Cosmetic Plastic Surgery procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance of the skin around the eyes.

Eyelid Surgery, or Blepharoplasty, shrinks the loose skin than overhangs the upper eyelid and tightens the bags often seen in the lower eyelids.

What Can Blepharoplasty Do For You?

Blepharoplasty literally means “Eyelid Shaping,” and that’s exactly what it does. If you have excess eyelid skin encroaching on your upper eyelashes, or acting like blinders blocking your vision, an Upper Blepharoplasty can help. Removing redundant upper eyelid skin not only makes you look more alert and rested, in cases of visual obstruction, it will increase your field of vision.

Cleaning Up the Upper Eyelids

Lower Eyelid Bag Removal

The Lower Blepharoplasty can also diminish the tired look. The fat of the lower eyelid can push forward as we age and looks like the puffiness seen with fatigue. A Lower Eyelid Lift can remove the excess fat and tighten the lower eyelid, restoring a more youthful rested appearance.

What Can Eyelid Surgery Do?

The most common reasons that Eyelid Lifts are performed include:

  • Excess upper eyelid skin
  • Fullness and bagging of the upper eyelids
  • Drooping of the upper eyelids
  • Upper eyelids grabbing eye makeup
  • Bags under the eyes
  • Sagging of the lower eyelids

Blepharoplasty treats excess skin and fat around the eyes. Fine lines of the eyelid skin are often treated with Chemical Peels or Laser Treatments
