Facial Surgical Procedures

eye lid liftEye Lid Lift–Blepharoplasty

The eyes are the windows of the face and give away our age more than any other facial feature. Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is performed to surgically remove the fat deposits and loose skin that have formed over time on the upper and/or lower eyelids. Many factors, including heredity and sun damage, accelerate these changes.


Younger people often elect to undergo eyelid surgery to eliminate puffiness of the eyes from congenital excess fatty tissue. Older people with severe ptosis (a medical condition causing the upper eyelids to severely droop and interfere with peripheral vision) often elect to undergo this procedure to correct their vision. Eyelid surgery is frequently combined with a brow lift or face lift for a more dramatic facial rejuvenation.
