Eyelid Lift

eyelid

The medical term for an eyelid lift is blepharoplasty. This procedure can remove puffiness or bags under the eyes. It can also correct droopy upper eyelids. These types of aging eyelid changes can lead to a tired or worn out appearance, and may even obstruct part of your vision. In this procedure, the doctor surgically removes excess fat, muscle, and skin from both the upper and lower eyelids to redefine the shape of the eye and establish a more youthful appearance.

Candidates for eyelid surgery are men and women who meet the following criteria:

  • Physically healthy
  • Psychologically stable
  • Realistic in their expectations
