Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)


The eyelids can create an aged look in a number of different ways:

  • Extra skin in the upper eyelid cause a saggy, tired, or sad appearance.
  • Extra fat in the upper or lower eyelid which can give a puffy appearance to the eyes
  • Wrinkles in the lower eyelid develop similarly as seen in other parts of the face. The wrinkles of the lower eyelid are “affectionately” known as the “tear trough”
  • Drooping or laxity of the lower eyelid allows the white portion (sclera) of the bottom of the eye to be seen and gives a tired appearance
  • Bagginess of the lower eyelid causing the eyes to look “puffy”

Depending on the specific problem with the eyelid, the eyelid lift creates a youthful eye by:

  • Removing the extra skin on the upper and lower eyelids
  • Removing the fat in either the upper or lower eyelid and thus decreasing the “puffiness” or “bagginess” of the eyes
  • Tightening the lower eyelid and therefore correcting the droopiness or tired appearance of the lower eyelids
