Browlift Surgery & Eyelid Contouring Overview Video
Excess fat and skin on the upper and lower eyelids can make you look tired or much older than you are. The medical term for eyelid surgery is blepharoplasty. Blepharoplasty is an eyelid surgery designed to reduce the signs of aging around the eyes and can take years off your face through the removal of protruding fat and hanging eyelid skin.
At our practice, blepharoplasty is often performed in conjunction with brow elevation and facelift surgery.
Prior to deciding to have surgery, our patients are encouraged to consult their ophthalmologists or optometrists to ensure there are not any undetected underlying visual or dryness problems. You will have only moderate soreness for a few days, but this improves quickly thereafter. Most people take off about 7 days from work to recuperate.
