Eyelift (Blepharoplasty)

Scar-Free Eyelid Surgery

Often, the eyes are the first place to show aging because the skin around your eye is thinner than on the rest of your face. Eyelid surgery can improve that "tired look;" remove bags, pouches and excess skin from under and over the eyes, and make you look years younger.

The Blepharoplasty Procedure

Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) can be performed to remove fat - usually along with excess skin - from the upper and lower eyelids.  It can correct drooping upper lids and puffy bags below your eyes. The surgery can be done alone, or combined with other facial procedures such as facelift or browlift.

Most eyelid surgery leaves invisible scars—incisions are made following natural lines and creases and usually disappear within a few months. If no excess skin needs to be removed, the lower lid incision can be made inside the lower lid. Otherwise, the incision is made just below the lashes. Fine wrinkles of the eyelids are removed with the laser.

After blepharoplasty, the upper eyelids no longer droop and the skin under the eyes is smooth and firm.
