Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery

Cosmetic eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, improves the appearance of your upper and/or lower eyelids, giving you a more rested and alert look.  You may notice loose or sagging skin that creates folds or disturbs the natural contour of the upper eyelid, which can impair vision.  Or perhaps you have noticed bags or excess fatty deposits under your eyes.  Eyelid surgery can help improve the appearance of the skin on and around your eyelids and help you achieve the awake, alert appearance you want.

Is eyelid surgery right for you?

  • Are you in good health (no life-threatening conditions or conditions that impair healing)?
  • Are you a non-smoker with realistic expectations?
  • Do you have a specific goal in mind for your surgery?
  • Are you free of any serious eye conditions?
