A blepharoplasty is the procedure used to correct defects or reduce heaviness and sagging around the eyes. By eliminating excess skin from your lids or re-sculpting the fat around your eyes, the surgeon can achieve a smooth transition from your eye to your cheek, leaving you looking younger and more rested.
Upper eyelid blepharoplasty reverses the droopiness that creates the appearance of being perpetually sad or tired. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty addresses bags under the eyes, and reduces tissue that may cause the lower lid to look weighed down. Both procedures can reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Blepharoplasty of the upper eyelids may be performed under local anesthetic. Discuss your options with your surgeon.
