Eyelid Surgery/Blepharoplasty

 

Our eyelids are meant to protect our eyes. So why do yours feel like they’re weighing you down?

 

Eyelid surgery/Blepharoplasty is both a functional and cosmetic procedure.  Functionally, loose or droopy excess eyelid skin can block your visual fields.  Asthetically, eyelid surgery improves the cosmetic appeal of eyelids giving them a wider, youthful appearance while also increasing comfort.

 

Eyelid issues stem from several different factors, including heredity, aging, chronic allergies, thyroid disorders, smoking, fluid retention, and more.

 

Fortunately, a multitude of issues in both the upper and lower lids can be treated with eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, including:

  • Excess skin or drooping skin present in the upper eyelids, causing a tired or puffy appearance

  • Loose or droopy skin creating folds in the upper lid, often impairing vision

  • Bags under the eyes

  • Excess skin and/or wrinkles in the lower lids

 

Removal of Lid Lesions

Various growths, infections, skin tags and cysts can occur on both the upper and lower eye lids. Fortunately, many of these eyelid disorders are not vision-threatening or life-threatening. However, many cause irritative symptoms such as burning, foreign-body sensation, pain or are not cosmetically appealing.  Removal of these lesions is an in-office procedure.
