Eyelid surgery, also known as blepharoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of the eyelids. As we get older, the eyes often play a big part in making us look tired and older. Wrinkles, sagging and even vision impairment can develop as the skin of the eyelids loses elasticity due to the aging process.

Typically, the steps involved with eyelid surgery are anesthesia, incisions, tissue removal and adjustment, suturing and recovery. The incision technique can differ depending on the specifics of the procedure; the upper eye lift and the lower eye lift each require their own incision methods. Lower eyelid procedures may also call for fat alteration to remove bags.

Blepharoplasty can be combined with other procedures, such as a brow lift or a nose job. Scheduling a consultation with double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Lee Ann Klausner will ensure that you have the best results possible.
