Are you interested in looking younger by removing excess drooping eyelid skin or eliminating the “bags” under your eyes? Cosmetic eyelid surgery or “blepharoplasty” takes less than one hour of surgical time with minimal discomfort and rapid recovery(less than one week) to give your face a more youthful, fresh appearance by removing excess drooping eyelid skin, and fat deposit “bags” under your eyes.

Benefits of Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery:
- Gives you a more youthful appearance by removing excess drooping skin around eyes.
- A safe and effective procedure way to make your eyes look younger by removing droopy eyelids.
- Permanent results from a relatively painless procedure that takes less than 1 hour with minimal downtime.
How Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Works:
Droopy eyelids can make you look older and can impair vision. Upper and lower eyelid cosmetic surgery (blepharoplasty) is performed by removing or excising the redundant skin and removal or sculpting the redundant fatty tissue around your eyes.
First, after receiving an oral sedating medication, the eyelids are injected with a local anesthetic solution taking about 8 to 10 seconds an eyelid. The face is prepped to make the surgical field sterile. Then we remove unwanted excess skin and fat to enhance your appearance. The main attraction to cosmetic eyelid surgery is that it can make a big improvement in appearance and is a relatively simple process that takes less than 1 hour. Most people are able to continue with their normal lives within a day with minimal downtime.
Cosmetic eyelid surgery cannot alleviate dark circles, fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes, but these problems can be improved with chemical peels or laser skin resurfacing. If brow drooping exists, a forehead or brow lift should be considered and performed prior to an upper blepharoplasty to produce the optimal cosmetic outcome. These procedures can be performed at the same surgical setting with the brow lift performed initially. Plus, other surgical procedures such as a facelift can be performed simultaneously to give you a more youthful appearance.
Forehead Lift/Brow Lift
These procedures may be needed to optimize the appearance of one’s eyes if the brow is drooping along with excess upper eyelid skin. If this is the case, the brow lift procedure is performed first, followed by the eyelid surgery, often at the same surgical setting.
This procedure may be needed to optimize the appearance of the lower eyelids. When the midface droops or is pulled downward by the aging process, rejuvenation of the eyelids in concert with the midface is the ideal aesthetic decision.
When the lateral aspect of the lower eyelid is pulled downward due to the aging process (senile ectropion or scleral show), from previous eyelid surgery that removed too much skin or from the midface pulling the eyelid inferiorly, strengthening the lateral canthus by re-suspending this aesthetically important structure further rejuvenates the face.
