Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is used to improve the appearance of the eyelids. Eyelid surgery removes excess skin, eliminates bags and restores firmness to the area surrounding the eye for a more youthful and alert appearance. Upper eyelid surgery may be covered by insurance if vision is impaired by the sagging eyelids.

Concerns eyelid surgery can address

  • I have sagging, droopy eyelids
  • My eyes appear half closed
  • Difficulty with peripheral vision
  • Difficulty applying makeup and keeping it on
  • I have wrinkles under my eyes

Considerations

  • Little downtime
  • Upper lids frequently covered by insurance
  • Minimal scarring camouflaged by the eyelid crease (upper) and lower eyelashes (lower)
  • Frequently done in combination with brow lift
