Blepharoplasty, also called an Eyelid Lift, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the upper and lower eyelids. As we get older, we all notice those little signs of aging start to set in–lines, creases, loss of skin elasticity, skin sagging, and wrinkles. For many, one of the first areas they notices signs of aging is in the tender skin around the eyes. The upper and lower eyelids may have sagging skin, that in severe cases may even hinder their sight, lines, creases, and puffiness can also be an issue. These unwanted signs of aging can make us look as if we are constantly run-down and worn-out, whether we feel that way or not–not always the image we wish to project out to the world.
Blepharoplasty can be performed on the upper and/or lower eyelids and may be performed in combination with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as a brow lift, or less invasive procedures such as dermal fillers or botox.
