Blepharoplasty, Upper or Lower or Combined

Upper or Lower eyelid surgery can be performed under local or IV sedation. Upper eyelid surgery typically takes under an hour.

During upper eyelid surgery, a thin incision is made within the natural crease of the eyelid. Excess skin and fat are removed; the muscles that support the eyelids may also be adjusted to help with the drooping. Lower blepharoplasty is the perfect choice to create a more refreshed appearance and combat the common signs of aging, which include downward migration of the midface, bulging of lower eyelid fat pads and drooping or wrinkling of the skin. When brow lift surgery is combined with upper blepharoplasty, a series of tiny incisions are also made along the forehead (just behind the hairline). Endoscopic instruments are then used to tighten the levator muscles within the forehead. Other types of minimally invasive brow lifting can also be performed in conjunction with eyelid surgery. This provides additional support for the upper eyelids while also raising eyebrows that have sagged over time.
