To put it simply, eyelid surgery can tighten sagging and drooping skin around the eyes. Many people opt for this type of surgery for cosmetic reasons, but it can also be used to improve functionality. The surgery can improve your overall appearance and give you a more youthful look. So, if you have excess skin around your eyes, you may want to speak to our talented plastic surgeon about this procedure.

How Does Eyelid Surgery Work?

Eyelid surgery can be performed on the lower lid, upper lid or both. The process typically involves removing excess skin and fat and addressing the underlying muscles. However, the details of each procedure vary from patient to patient.

Who is a Good Candidate?

If you suffer from any of the following conditions, you may be a good candidate for eyelid surgery:

  • Sagging or loose skin, especially if it impairs your vision
  • Upper eyelid puffiness caused by fat
  • Under-eye bags
  • Excess skin on the lower lid
  • Wrinkles on the upper lid
  • Eyelids that droop

While this procedure is performed by a qualified professional, it may not fix everything. Like any other surgery, individuals should have realistic goals. Results often vary, so if you have unrealistic expectations, you might be disappointed. The procedure cannot stop aging, but it can greatly improve your overall appearance and give you a more refreshed look.

There are times when eyelid surgery may not be the best option. Our doctor will want to make sure the surgery is for you. In some cases, the procedure may be combined with another treatment in order to achieve optimal results.
