Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)
Blepharoplasty is a very common aesthetic surgical procedure. As we age, excess skin can form around our eyes, causing us to look older, tired, wrinkled, or puffy. This is natural because, as we grow older, our skin loses elasticity and previously tight tissues can begin to droop. With eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), we work toward restoring a youthful and refreshed appearance to your eyes without noticeable scarring.
When we look at the tissues around the eyes, we need to consider the upper and lower areas separately. The upper eyelid is connected to, and very influenced by, the brow. The tissues below the eyes are connected to the cheek. So when we address the eyelids, we have to consider and often work with the condition of these surrounding areas to achieve the correct effect.
