Blepharoplasty

Eyelid Surgery / Eye Lift

The eyelids are typically the first region of the face to show signs of aging. Often by the time one reaches his or her mid-thirties, the upper eyelids develop hanging skin and the lower lids build up fatty bags, which progressively creates a tired appearance. Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) is the name of the operation which effectively corrects these cosmetic changes.


Our Approach

As one ages into their forties and beyond, the signs of fatigue around the eyelids continue to advance. Often, the lower eyelid muscle called the orbicularis oculi loosens and falls, further accentuating the appearance of exhaustion. In these cases neither traditional transcutaneous or transconjunctival blepharoplasty can achieve optimal rejuvenation. Instead, an orbicularis muscle suspension provides a more complete correction. Re-supporting the muscle sheet helps to better define the cheeks, sustain the natural shape of the lids, and reduces the tired appearance of the eyes.
