Blepharoplasty (Eyelid Surgery)


The eyes draw considerable attention to how others evaluate our appearance, but unfortunately are one of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging. Genetic and environmental effects cause excess skin to eventually form around the eyes as skin elasticity fades, negatively affecting facial symmetry and overall appearance..

Droopiness, wrinkles, and other detracting features mount as early as our 30s, but luckily now, there are procedures like upper and lower blepharoplasty that can refresh your natural beauty.


What is Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, commonly known as eyelid surgery, is a simple surgery that targets the specific area around the eye a patient desires to refresh.

At the Facial Surgery Center, we perform both upper and lower blepharoplasty procedures, which accomplishes different aims for patients.

Lower blepharoplasty surgery erases sagging or baggy eyes with ease by careful removal of excess or drooping skin below the eye. Upper blepharoplasty targets droopiness on the higher portion of the eyelids, enhancing vision quality and tightening facial appearance simultaneously.

With either procedure the constant creases and tired expressions can be eliminated, giving your face a more alert appearance that lets your eyes fully shine.

The associated benefits of blepharoplasty are:

  • Removal of drooping skin near eyes and excess fat
