Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery
Blepharoplasty eyelid surgery is a popular type of cosmetic facial plastic surgery to help you look your best. In our society, looking your best and preserving your youthful features are important parts of who we are.
Upper Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty involves the improvement of two characteristics of the aging upper eyelid area. The first is correction of excess skin of the upper eyelid, a condition referred to as “hooding of the upper lid.” The second condition that can be corrected is the puffiness that is seen in the inner corner and middle of the eyelid as a result of herniation or pushing forward of fat located in these areas above the eye.
Lower Eyelid Blepharoplasty
Lower eyelid Blepharoplasty is a procedure performed to improve the appearance of the lower eyelids, which is the anatomic area that extends from the lower lid eyelashes to the bony rim of the eye socket. If there is a herniation of fat present, there are two different surgical approaches to remove the fat. One technique utilizes an inconspicuous incision that runs just beneath the lash line. An alternative is to enter the fat pockets throughout an incision made in the inner lining of the lower eyelid. If excess skin needs to be removed, this can only be accomplished throughout an external approach. The procedure is long lasting and resets the clock decades.
