Also called Blepharoplasty, eyelid surgery can repair eyelids which may have become droppy and impair vision. This procedure can also correct puffiness or bags under the eyes, reducing a “tired” appearance. The surgeon removes excess fat, muscle and skin above and below the eye, resulting in a refreshed appearance with a younger, firmer eye area. Eyelid surgery may be combined with a browlift, facelift or skin resurfacing for best results. The healing process may involve swelling and bruising, along with stitches that self-absorb or are removed a few days after surgery. Eyelid surgery can also be preformed to create a fold in the upper eyelid, making it easier for young ladies born without upper eyelid “creases” to apply makeup.
