What is a Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty, commonly referred to as eyelid surgery or eyelid lift is a cosmetic surgical procedure that lifts the upper eyelids, eliminates sagging lower eyelids and removes bags.

Cosmetic eyelid surgery is a common routine procedure that hundreds of thousands of men and women undergo annually in North America. The eyelids are one of the first facial features to give away your age. Whether you have droopy upper eyelids or puffy lower eyelids, sometimes being rested and healthy isn’t enough give your eyes that youthful sparkle. Eyelid surgery can refresh and renew the facial appearance of women and man of all ages.

Many patients notice eyelid sagging and puffiness gradually increases as part of the natural aging process; others have always had loose upper eyelid skin. Some patients require a brow lift instead of eyelid enhancement surgery to achieve their desired improvements.

Blepharoplasty (eyelid enhancement surgery) can be performed on the upper eyelids, the lower eyelids, or both. This procedure revives the eye area by removing sagging skin from the upper eyelids, tightening droopy lower eyelids, and reducing puffy bags from underneath the eyes. Often our eyelid surgery patients choose to combine it with other facial sculpting procedures, such as face, facelift and brow lift.

Key Benefits of Blepharoplasty:

  • Youthful Appearance: Blepharoplasty can effectively reduce signs of aging around the eyes, such as sagging skin, wrinkles, and puffiness, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed look.
  • Improved Vision: In some cases, excess upper eyelid skin can obstruct vision. Blepharoplasty can correct this issue, enhancing both appearance and eyesight.
  • Enhanced Self-Confidence: Restoring a more alert and vibrant eye area often leads to increased self-confidence and a more positive self-image.
  • Customizable: Blepharoplasty is a versatile procedure that can be tailored to address specific concerns of the upper and lower eyelids.

Is Blepharoplasty Right for You?

Blepharoplasty may be a suitable option if you have any of the following concerns:

  • Excess Skin: Sagging or drooping skin on the upper eyelids that makes you appear tired or older than you feel.

  • Puffy Eyelids: Swelling or bags under the eyes that create a tired or aged appearance.

  • Impaired Vision: Excess upper eyelid skin that obstructs your field of vision.

  • Wrinkles and Fine Lines: Wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes that you’d like to reduce.
