Eyelid lift surgery or blepharoplasty surgery is shown when the eyelids require recontouring. Specifically, blepharoplasty is most useful when excess skin needs to be removed, the muscles are enlarged or require tightening, or eye fat needs to be removed or redistributed. Upper eyelid lift surgery typically involves an incision made in the natural crease above the eye. Your cosmetic surgeon will remove a precise amount of excess skin and fat and adjust the surrounding muscles to make the desired improvements. Cosmetic surgeons can use a variety of surgical techniques to improve the lower eyelids; incisions are located on the outer edge of the lower eyelid, just beneath the eyelashes, or inside the eyelid. Depending on the case, I may remove excess, sagging skin or tighten the lower eyelid muscle to supply the most natural, effective results.
