Blepharoplasty or Eyelid Surgery
Patients refer to it as “Eye Lift”. As years pass, the eyelids will lower, altering the eye function, and making the eyes look tired or droopy. This procedure removes the excess of skin on the upper eyelid and remove the fat pads that become visible due to genetic factors or the effects of time. It is an outpatient procedure that in most cases comprises local anesthesia. On the upper eyelid, the excess of skin is removed, the position of the eyelid and the drop of the lacrimal glands are corrected, and the fat pads are removed. On the lower eyelid, the fat pads are repositioned, muscles are adjusted, and, in some cases, skin is removed.
