Eyelid Surgery

Blepharoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure involving the reshaping of the upper eyelid and or lower eyelid through the removal of excess tissue. The procedure is used to correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below the eyes by removing fat, as well as excess skin and muscle, from the upper eyelid and or lower eyelid.

Blepharoplasty is performed by small incisions being made along the natural lines of the eyelids, such as the creases of the upper lids and below the lashes of the lower lids. The skin is then separated from the underlying fatty tissue and muscle, excess fat is removed, and sagging skin and muscle will be trimmed. Finally, the incisions are closed and usually take one to two weeks to heal. This procedure typically takes one to three hours to complete.
