What can an eye lift do?

The blepharoplasty procedure can correct the following:

  • Excess skin in the lower eyelids
  • Puffy fat deposits on eyelids or under the eyes
  • Folded skin over upper eyelids
  • Under-eye bags

How is an eyelid surgery performed?

Eyelid surgery is an outpatient procedure. You’ll be given local anesthesia, or in some cases, IV sedation. Incisions are placed in the upper eyelid, in the natural crease, or in the lower eyelid along the lash line depending on your custom treatment plan. Through the meticulously placed incision, excess skin, fat, or muscle is repaired, removed, or repositioned to its natural, youthful position. The procedure typically involves removing a small amount of skin in either the upper or lower eyelids to restore a youthful look to the eye structure. Finally, we use fractional laser treatments to rejuvenate skin quality.
