Eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) is used to reduce the amount of excess tissue around the eyes that often results in a tired appearance. Upper blepharoplasty removes excess skin from the upper lid and sometimes a small amount of fat. Lower blepharoplasty generally involves removal of skin as well as fat that may be producing bags under the eyes. Occasionally, the fat alone may be removed, resulting in no visible scars. These procedures may either be done alone or in combination with other procedures such as brow lift or face lift. Recovery is about 2 weeks.
Blepharoplasty does not correct facial wrinkles nor will it smooth wrinkles on the forehead or lift sagging eyebrows. Blepharoplasty will not remove “crow’s feet”, eliminate dark circles under the eyes, or lift sagging eyebrows .The best way to find out which procedure is right for you is to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon.
