About Eyelid Surgery

Women and men who can benefit from eyelid surgery are typically those who suffer from an array of aesthetic imperfections around the upper or lower eyelids.

Eyelid Surgery Procedure

Depending on your own unique needs, eyelid surgery can be performed on the upper eyelids, lower eyelids, or both.

Upper Eyelid Surgery

Upper eyelid surgery typically involves the removal of excess skin that is affecting your vision and/or giving you a tired, haggard appearance. So, the remaining skin is lifted and reattached for a smoother, more refreshed look. Upper eyelid surgery can also help improve vision for those with drooping skin that is affecting your ability to see. Incisions for the procedure are made in the crease of the upper eyelid. Therefore, residual scarring should be barely visible. A local anesthetic or general anesthetic can be used for upper eyelid surgery. In addition, the procedure is generally performed as an outpatient and takes from one to three hours to complete.

Lower Eyelid Surgery

Lower eyelid surgery is mainly performed to reduce the appearance of bagginess under the eyes. And, a small incision is made under the lower eyelashes and excess skin, fat, and muscle are removed. So, the remaining skin is reshaped into a smoother and firmer appearance. This procedure is typically completed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis. Moreover, it takes from one to three hours to complete.
