Blepharoplasty, more commonly known as Eyelid Lift:
Droopy conditions of the upper eyelid can be corrected through eyelid surgery. An incision within the natural crease of the upper eyelid allows repositioning of fat deposits, tightening of muscles and tissue, and/or removal of excess skin to create a firmer upper eyelid contour.
Lower eyelid conditions may be corrected be using a transconjunctival incision, which is hidden inside the lower eyelid. Through the transconjunctival incision, fat is then redistributed or removed, and sagging muscles are tightened. An alternative technique is an incision just below the lower lash line, which allows for correction of lower eyelid conditions and removal of excess skin in the lower lid.
Incision lines from eyelid surgery will be well concealed within the natural structures of the eyelid region. As the swelling and bruising subside you’ll see a smooth, better-defined eyelid and surrounding region, and a more alert and rejuvenated appearance.
