Cosmetic eyelid surgery, called blepharoplasty, is a procedure more than 100,000 people each year undergo to improve their appearance. Eyelids are often the first place to show aging, and many want to improve:
- Droopy, puffy eyelids
- Sagging skin that weighs on the eyelashes
- Bags under the eyes
- A tired appearance
Blepharoplasty can be performed on upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both together. It will brighten the face and restore a more youthful appearance. In many patients, the procedure will improve vision by removing the excessive skin of the upper eyelids which can hang down like heavy hoods and interfere with peripheral vision, or weigh the lids down during reading.
Eyelid surgery is usually performed using local anesthesia. The procedure is performed in our outpatient surgical center with a same-day return home.
